A Bag Of Cosmic Distress


What is reality? Is it the world we percieve around us, or the world we have made to be a solid structure to minipulate and explore? Reality, I think, is as solid as the surface of water. It's all a matter of where you are observing the show. The point of view, basically.
For example: in Madagascar, their is a certain species of spider that spends it intire life surrounded by it's smaller cousins and is never the wiser. The smaller spiders, it seems, are just beyond the larger spider's senses. Maybe it's the same for us. How thick is reality? You decide.

This group is for strange tales of cosmic horror. They make us think how small we are in the universe and how little we really know. Give me your strangest and make Lovecraft and King proud.

"What do we know," he had said, "of the world and the universe about us? Our means of receiving impressions are absurdly few, and our notions of surrounding objects infinitely narrow. We see things only as we are constructed to see them, and can gain no idea of their absolute nature. With five feeble senses we pretend to comprehend the boundlessly complex cosmos, yet other beings with wider, stronger, or different range of senses might not only see very differently the things we see, but might see and study whole worlds of matter, energy, and life which lie close at hand yet can never be detected with the senses we have."
---H.P.Lovecraft: From Beyond
