The Mysterious Disappearance of the MinXus Evolution Tree [part II]

By adopting this method, once you have examined the unusual events, you will have to proceed to the usual ones, The what ones, The usual ones, What do you mean by usual, Usual is the opposite of unusual, its antonym, If necessary, we shall pass from the unusual to the usual events, but we must discover the cause, You have a lot of investigating ahead of you, We’re making a start, tell me where you found the strength.

    Very good, Empress. I was just writing at Yo Ma how David Chirot can capture the vision of Kafka and Poe in his work, and I should have added by juxtaposing asemic writing with one or two brilliantly
    chosen visual images.

    You have done a similar thing here by juxtaposing a total of (I think?) three images – even if two of them are spread out with the grid. With those image relations you have established the mind is irresistibly drawn to make meaning. But it captures the unease of a mystery, of trying to make things fit together that don’t seem to belong.

    To me, the principle is essentially literary because by using the limited images (and applying repetition) you are creating metaphors establishing relations in a kind of prosody – getting closer to my dream of being able to articulate visual prosody or asemic prosody.

    Thanks Rancher, that’s a great commentary. I like to tell stories in series. I don’t know if there will be a third one on this, but let’s see. It’s kind of spontaneous. Sometimes I would like to get closer to visnoir, but just because a picture is black and white doesn’t mean it is noir, no so?
    I was indeed trying to make opposites fit, I’m glad it seems to have worked.
