For those of you pHaithful pHans of Phantacea, ones who followed pHant serials years ago on what’s now www.phantacea.info but was Phantacea on the Web (pH-Webworld then as now), here’s a link to a story entitled “3D Printers make guns”. I spotted it the other day on p B4 of the Vancouver Sun, December 22, 2012: http://www.vancouversun.com/technology/Click+print+shoot+Guns+made+printers+will+reality+sooner+than+think+says+politician/7736912/story.html
Scary stuff, I grant you. However, does this or does this not remind you of the ending to “The Weirdness of Cabalarkon”? Does me, hence why it qualifies as a Serendipitous Sighting. (For many more, click here.)
BTW, Weird’s ending is not revealed in its synopses (http://www.phantacea.info/synop5.htm#limbo1) but I might as well remind (or tell) you that it involves efforts made by 5980’s Master of Weir to replicate, um, something using the Weirdom’s 6000 year old reconstruction of Old Weir’s Mother Machine.
I’ve used this shot to represent Blind Sundown for years. The artist is Fernando Castro Pacheco (January 26, 1918 – ). The artwork is in the Governor’s Palace in Merida, Mexico. The hall where I shot it is open to the public. It should be a must-see for anyone who visits Merida. (Uxmal is kind of neat as well.)
I believe Pacheco himself still lives in Merida. Google him up; impressive stuff. One link is here: http://yucatantoday.com/en/topics/castro-pacheco-murals. But there are better ones.
