I am a lover of Yahweh, and of all who love Yahweh, a purveyor of the strange things of our Maker.
Your neighbour taking out their garbage on a different day than normal would be strange, which is obviously not what I'm talking about, so to specify I call the strange things I purvey using the term "OOM" (Of Our Maker). For a thing to be that kind of strange, to be an OOM, that thing must fall heavily enough in one or more arms of the OOMlich Hex, which are:
The closest thing to "OOMlich" in a more familiar word. Where fiction can express what history cannot, and fantasy can express what mere fiction cannot, the Surreal can express what mere fantasy cannot.
The gruesome, horrifying, disturbing, ugly, these are right aims of an artist, as well as the beautiful and comforting.
Few things are as naturally, celestially, and deeply strange as sexual intercourse, and the intimacies which radiate from that perfect centre.
The mystery of curious symbols, why people try to interpret dreams, why other languages are used in fictional magic, why languages and scripts in general are OOMlich in concept and aesthetic.
Why a child's drawing, or movies from the late 1900s, are often OOMlich, and also one reason this rather ungainly hex is itself OOMlich. The cheesy, edgy, grunge, rough-cut, the attraction of things even oneself dislikes.
Refers to an aspect in the other aspects: how repeating patterns are part of the surreal, how trypophobia stimuli are part of the grotesque, how multiplication (especially among prolific animals) into a teeming swarm is part of the sexual, how symbols in scripts form textures, and how the coarse and grainy is part of the unpolished.
Let me know if you share my interests!
I was curious and did some figuring, and I found out that if you take a series of 12 circles with an increasing number of points at equal intervals on their circumferences, the number of single-line, self-crossing star polygons (like the pentagram) that you can make on the twelve circles is also 12:
4 can make 1 star,
2 can make 2 stars,
1 can make 4 stars,
and the smallest number of points that can make a star is 5 (the pentagram), and 5 of the circles cannot make a star.
