    New toy - microscope camera

    I just got a camera that attaches to my microscopes.

    I suspect postings of tiny things will be forthcoming...

    Well, I'm hunting water bears and hydra tomorrow, but after that, I'm game!

    Hydra are so fun and weird! Should find them in any ol' swamp water.

    I've never seen a tardegrade in person. Please do share if you find one!

    I consulted my ancient books of lore, bound in strange leather, and conferred with the ascended masters. All sources described a strange ritual for the collection of Water Bears, wherein the source matter of tardigrades is harvested from dry, primitive plant forms, then blessed with the prime solvent H2O, reconstituting this outré life form from it's essential salts.

    Armed with this esoteric information and the sacred paraphernalia of my occult order, Little Ms. Deeds (the expedition dog) and I ventured forth into the uncharted wilds in search of the elusive and occult entities that dwell all about us, if we could but see.

    The water bear experiment is currently proceeding in my vats, and I will report back on the results later... if I am able.

    In the mean time, I shall reveal some of the mysterious entities Ms. Deeds and I encountered while in the wild:

    Behold! Aquatic flora. Note that you can clearly see the shoggothic composition where individual protoplasmic quasi-fluids are isolated in separate cells.

    This specimen has taken on a strangely symmetrical quadratic form where individual entities have bound themselves together for purposes as yet unknown:

    In the unseen unknown there can be great beauty, as an be found in the crystalline hides of these diatoms:

    nother diatom.jpg

    There is also horror beyond conception, captured in this image of a parasitic monstrosity currently residing in a bottle-like container as it awaits its future unwilling host, captured live, for the first time on Pagan Forum:



    Due to containment in a spiked bottle-like structure which allows this entity to better lodge in the intestines of it's unsuspecting macro host prior to taking possession and reeking havoc, I have named this creature The Green Djinn.

    The unseen world that plays out all around us without our awareness also plays host to strange creatures that lurk about the edges of our perceptions. I briefly caught a glimpse of this entity which is beyond my poor powers of identification. I am referring to it as The Night Gaunt. Be prepared to see by watching the lower right side of this visual record:

    I love that stuff! I had a little microscope when I was a kid - it might still be around somewhere - and I remember seeing little thingamabobs moving around.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    Well, dammit! The Masters of Disorder have put a halt to the Deeds Expedition.

    There was, I think, a power surge last night, and my CD/receiver and laptop are...

    ...perhaps...

    ...deceased.
