This is where I offload crazy imagery in my head, and just throw them out there. A bevy of images and concepts that haunt my dreams and my nightmares.
Whether or not I will be using them in my works, has yet to be seen. I figure I’d share them with people, and let them make remarks on them or whatever.
-Female mystic, sitting in the middle of an industrial area, surrounded by foundries and refineries, with disheveled hair but a happy warm face, wearing an oil and soot-stained ballerina tutu, divining portents and omens from piles of rust and pools of industrial waste.
-Posthuman ascetics affixing themselves to giant communication antennas and engaging in mass meditation-fasting while shutting off autonomic functions slowly in their augmented bodies.
-Posthuman mystics ingesting in potent alchemical solutions and allowing themselves to experience the effects of said drugs, by shutting off their metabolic functions and defenses, but leaving the key ones in place to keep themselves from dying outright or over time. They use implanted recorders to record their visions and such.
-Religious terrorists and their missionaries using a mixture of potent hallucinogens, nootropic inhibitors, and powerful memetic viruses in conjunction with theatricality to brainwash converts into homicidal devotees.
-Hacking into a target’s consciousness, subconscious and nervous system, and transforming them into an a crude version of a quantum computing processor, that eventually burns out due to the speeds at which the target’s entire body is being used for quantum computing power.
-Hermetically sealed off underground road system flooded with water, serving as a waterhole/fishing hole w/ entrance to waterhole located in the upper wall.
-Gigantic crystalline structures dotting the surface of a planet serving as massive database storage units and massive communications network
-Cults powering their war machines and their homes with the hearts of the homeless and abandoned which attracts the dead and magickally reanimates the dead.
-Fortified mobile home parks. Gun-wielding homeowners associations in these mobile home parks doubling as a cheap paramilitary force
-Certain towns and townships being selected at random and without consent, to serve as the test beds for next-generation designer drugs and performance enhancers, along with bleeding edge experimental nanotechnology and femtotechnology, and next-generation energy weapons as well. Said towns and townships are also turned into isolated saturation zones in order to further test the limits and strengths of the Human form. These towns and townships are blocked from outside access and communication and the townsfolk are subjected to routine and progressive experimentation and testing, in order for the scientists to further refine their technologies and sciences.
-Planetary and galactic-scale super-plagues that swell up and disappearing without warning like rogue waves, occurring when you least expect them to; leaving in their wake, countless dead and dying, or severely infected and diseased.
-Sentient, hyper-aggressive plant life and wilderness that is capable of swallowing up entire cities, towns & villages in the blink of an eye and devouring all sentient life within the confines of these habitats.
-Remnants of the Old United States Government and various other World Governments, moving about the world in fleets of converted, retrofitted, and modified airplanes, helicopters, and military aerial transports, aircraft carriers, frigates, submarines, cruise ships, ocean freighters and catamarans.
Hold-overs from the old days; hiding out and staying in isolated areas of the world, often at long-forgotten military installations from the Cold War; moving around every so often to avoid being detected and attacked; conspiring to one day enact Continuity of Government Protocols and restore the UN; passing on such hopes and traditions to their children and grandchildren, so forth and so on; their Secret Service personnel making fuel and supply raids into nearby communities they detect.
Enjoy the Infection and Spread it Memetically.
