So divorced from reality that pain is reassuring and stabilizing. Not a 
wholly alien feeling. @.@

I seriously want to see this animated.

I think you mispelled "mythopoeic". :3

Man. The demonstration we've seen really gives weight to the idea of 
something so terrible your mind would try to avoid remembering.

Augh. So many badass moments. Of course, he's kind of made of them to a 
dangerous degree...

I love how much of this series has been cosmic power struggling against 
even MORE cosmic power. Jeez.

You know... so, I tried marijuana for the first time recently. It has a 
different effect on everybody, and its biggest effect on me was enhanced 
sensory sensitivity. Everything felt better, touching, tasting, smelling 
- pressing a piece of rough rope to the tip of my nose and inhaling was 
wonderful, putting a small piece of cheese in my mouth was heaven. And 
the thing that reminded me the most of was reading this series. The 
sensory experiences you put in here are amazing, powerful, immanent - 
empowering, ennobling. I love it.
