A good friend of mine tagged me with a link to a The New Yorker cartoon image this morning on Facebook; being such an avid reader and fan of my blog (that’s right, yes bokehbree???), immediately the thought of Hatybov’s Spiders, or the Arachnid Megrez species, came to mind. And why wouldn’t it? The caption of the cartoon above states, “it’s amazing what you can see once you get away from all that light pollution.” I doubt any of us would doubt that such a statement is as relevant as it is today.
Possible Hatybov References?
The most obvious reference is the image of the Arachnid Spider. One sees a mechanical spider with six legs and with hooks/possible crescent moons attached to its legs, front and center. In the upper right hand corner there is also the image of the black arachnid. From the black arachnid, there emits lines or wave forms that one could possible argue is the idea of the Pythagorean / Hatybov Law of Octaves, or wavelengths, generated from the form and shape of the spider. The Octaves direction appears to be pointed towards a chattering “Joker chattering set of teeth” (interesting that I’ve currently been destroying such teeth of late courtesy of many a batarang in the Xbox series Batman : Arkham Asylum/City games of late…synchronicities never cease to amaze me). One familiar with the original Hatybov material could indeed infer that Octaves, directly, interfere with each and everyone of us’s bio jackets and brain, which in turn directly influence our language.
Aside from the potentially obvious Spider/Octave Hatybov reference, there is another image that more so caught my attention: the elephant around the spherical beach ball/bean bag chair/some other spherical object. Returning the original language available on line:
Так как Земля с некоторого времени стала шаром, а до этого была плоской и во времена Архимеда покоилась на 3 китах (слонах) все, что было рассчитано относительно китов (слонов) автоматически перенесено на шаровую форму .
Since the Earth for some time was the ball, and before that was flat and at the time of Archimedes rests on 3 pillars (elephants) all that was calculated with respect to whales (elephants) are automatically transferred to the ball shape .
A ball that is being hugged by an elephant? Not bad…
A Return to the Meme that Space Is Water
While not directly attributable the reputed works of the alleged Soviet scientist Hatybov, there is a current thought that the mass media is implying a truth that outer space is, indeed, water. As discussed previously here, why that may be the case or what the rationale would be for such symbolism, I have no personal experience to attest to. Yet returning to the image above, there are a couple of “Space is Water” images embedded in the mass media presentation that include:
- First and foremost, the two aquatic like creatures in the lower right hand corner circling a potential star, black hole, worm hole, etc
- Around the aquatic life forms are water waves being rippled into the night sky
- The tortoise swimming through the night sky
- Fishing hooks attached to the legs of the robotic creature in the center of the image, possibly implying a “fishing/catching mechanism” in the center of the sea of the Universe
- The possible “beach ball” the elephant is encompassing in the upper right hand corner…the elephant indeed is keeping our precious planet’s spherical shape in form with the great ocean of the Universe
Sadly No Inclusion of…
To have truly met the requirements that the artist is aware of the research in this area of alternative material, I was hoping for a reference of a Lunar Wave, a Cube, or even a fake Paul McCartney. Sure, waves exist, a carbohydrate hamburger bun is floating through space, and a possible Macca/Faul piece of evidence involving sunglasses could be inferred (see above image – great 1960’s photoshop, by the way), but let’s pass on all that for the time being. I’ll admit that is a bit of a stretch (more so than the other stretches I’ve presented).
Officially the Image Appears to Be…
I’ll be the first to admit that I could be linking random pieces of data in the work I’ve explored over the past year with a random piece of art recently featured in The New Yorker. However, these coincidences seem to happen more frequently to me than in the past, and at the very least, it gives me material to write about. The above images could simply be an artist’s representation of constellations in the night sky, and I would not argue with that imagery whatsoever. Had a Big Mac existed in ancient Greece, would it be surprising to learn about the “Great Carbohydrate and Hamburger of Constellation of Orion”in our Astronomy classes today that our ancestors worshiped? Sadly, probably not.
The cartoon above was drawn by artist Sara Lautman; more of her work is featured here. The image was tucked nicely into a The New Yorker piece regarding revolution here . Sara’s work looks to focus on the surreal and absurd, and I highly recommend checking out her work on her site. I know I definitely will be in the near future.
So what did I miss? Do any of you see symbols/allegories within the drawing above? There is the hybrid unicorn creature rushing through the sky, and the two observers located on the cliff…does anyone see anything else in the image above? As always, I’d love to hear any idea of the work I put together. Good, bad, or indifferent, I always appreciate the feedback.
Up next, another Kirby piece focusing on the planet Jupiter and Resurrection, and then a return to the PID material.
