The piece entitled "The Lie" (executed very well) makes me think
about "entity" worship as a whole. Even though entities make there presence felt in mankind, are they none other than coded memes within our DNA. Rather than worship can we/I make correspondenses with these energies. Can they be interdimensional as well? The being has a covered face. Can she/he be looking inward?
I bought the book ITI and find it interesting how beauty can be juxtaposed with horror,nightmares and the like(the Burkean Sublime?).
In the book I got turned onto some poetic verses that might go unoticed in this visual masterpiece.
Do you know of any books that dwell on similar poetry shown in the book?
