Blast from the Past, Issue #11Hi again from heavenriver, your usual Blast from the Past host
Following on with the series of UF oldies whose galleries definitely deserve a thorough look, we will be featuring FractalEyes today!
This is her current ID and avatar, and it truly does represent her style, showing almost ALL its distinctive elements. Her work is both eminently classical and exquisitely geometric in nature. She has a fantastic affinity with shapes and analogous palettes, especially of the metallic, marble-like, and sandy kinds.
"But aren't spirals and flowers boring?" I hear you cry, and rightfully so. The answer is: yes, but not in her case. Just like many other styles, spirals and flowers are two types of fractals that can be done and dusted and even OVERDONE to death, until you see so many of them you just want to go hide in a corner and cry because they all look the same. This is the strength of her work: while doing mostly cl
My Designs on ProductsSome sample products with my designs on them arrived in the post today and cheered me up! . So I thought I would share them with you
My son is really happy with this cushion he asked for and I'm really pleased with how it came out and is a suede like material
Below, cushion, travel mug, iPhone case (now on my phone) and mug
My neighbour requested this as gift as she is moving
Thanks for looking!
Your lack of faith is disturbing-religion in scifiReligion and science fiction make strange bed fellows, though the intertextuality between the two is as old as the genre itself. In this post I want to explore what it means to me as an atheist sci-fi writer to use religion within my work, and look at the broader context of how religion is used within the genre to explore the meta nature of religion. There are potential spoilers across the whole genre within this piece, though I only briefly look at ideas from 2014/2015.
Right from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, where the good doctor is an allegory for human hubris in trying to take God’s power through to Parson Nathaniel inWar of the World to modern examples like the faith in the 12 vs monotheism in Battlestar Gallactica and the exploration of personal faith in the Mass Effect trilogy religion permeates the stories as metaphor, allegory, and personality trait for characters driving the narrative forward. This is why I like having religion within

Critique of Fractal ArtCritique of Fractal Art
The first step is to define what is critique after all. Lets quote Wikipedia (an old version of the article, though):
Critique is a method of disciplined, systematic analysis of a written or oral discourse. Critique is commonly understood as fault finding and negative judgement, but it can also involve merit recognition, and in the philosophical tradition it also means a methodical practice of doubt.
Critique is an accepted and established process of orderly scholarly and public debate. In the fine arts and the humanities, and especially in writing, critique is influenced by the scientific method of analysis. Critique is based upon an informed opinion, and never upon personal opinion. Informed opinion is accepted as being technical knowledge, personal or professional experience, or specified training.
So what does that means?
First, critiques are commonly negative. You are not supposed to point out positive aspects of the work when writing a cri
Not here....againSorry I haven't been around......again.
My real life is pretty hectic at the moment, and I'm finding it hard to cope.
Now someone has hacked my bank account and run up an overdraft of several hundred quid
The bank is investigating, but warned me I may have to pay this sum in the end.
I've never liked banks and I only use mine to pay my TV licence and my subby here, so there's never much in it.
At this time I had just over a £100 in it as my TV licence is due soon, but obviously that has gone
There's never much in my bank as I live on a State Pension, so thank God I'm poor haha
Had my eyes tested last week, then got a phone call today saying I need to go back for further testing.
That's never happened before, and the lady cheerily says 'nothing to worry about'...but you DO worry.
I'm trying my best not to worry about anything in my life these days, and I laugh and joke all the time, but my sense
of humour is taking a bit of a battering lately

About helping othersIt has recently come to my attention that some people just don't know how to respond to requests from others for help. I have always offered help to those I can when asked. I've never ignored a request for help. I do ask that a question is specific in nature. But overall, I answer every question I can to the best of my abilities.
So if you're going to act like you know something, and answer questions from people, you had better be prepared to answer a bunch of questions and have a bit of patience. Many times one question leads to another, and another after that. Or once you help with one question, that person may then turn to you and ask different questions. So be prepared for that. If someone is asking you for advice, they obviously think you have more knowledge that might help them. If you can't take the time for follow up questions, or just don't want to be bothered by questions that you 'think' are too obvious or simple for you to respond to, then you have no business helping someo
Hyper-Surreal Fractal Chess Set - The GAMEThe 3D PRINTED
The Project I have been working on subconsciously for years, which I mentioned in my previous post is now finished.
--- The Hyper Surreal Fractalic Mystical Chess set - My Masterpieces ---
The full set is a play in 7 acts about humanity, the evolution and the quest for knowledge through enlightenment and superfluity until the day when mankind finally became the plague of the planet.
A chess set immensely more surreal than Max Ernsts, Marcel Duchamps and Dalís sets.
Chess was made to be played with pieces of pure fractal mathematics, I now know that!
