Society is De-evolving
becoming smaller and smaller
and in turn chaos and destruction spreads
and i forsee this
even though i am both human and God

I AM ME....

This pretty sums up all what im feeling right now...all this time i never even thought of it that way, 3 types of societies "Evolved", "Evolving" and "De-evolving" and they both go togehter in an unending cycle between life and death by which technology is the only drug that feeds us on our souls which make us hungry and destructive. Everyday i seem to forsee this and at the same time just watch till everything just stops in my world and that my only guilt is that i am here with the curse of the world. Sometimes i hate myself, not being like normal in a way...everytime i look in a mirror i see the other person just sitting back and laughing at me and the other one comforting me. Life wasnt the same back then...living the happy life as a kid and then running to thatdepression state where you just feel left out and in need of searching or a place to belong. Ive grasp that for a little while but in turn never stuck with it because i am evolving, changing and changing like molten lava which surges through the earths core like wildfire. Ever question the un questioned? People would just answer on how stupid the impossibilities are to answer it and later on it would just let you down day by day until you find it. My own subconcious is a battling struggle between Me, my depressive and hateful sides and im just caught in the middle of it....Oh how i wish it was more of freedom and more of love...Love is something im still looking for, dont even know if its just there waiting for me or am i just so foolish in still believing in such things!!! I thank God for putting me on this green earth and making me think more and more and more until i am ready to make my own heaven. But nowadays i just go on my early routine of fight and flight, love or hate, help or save...but now it doesnt really matter...Lain is someone i would gladly relate to in this situation except that part where she searches for who she really is but ah well people change everyday right?depression can do wonders but living with it takes a while to control because theres always an off/ on switch for eveything, pieces of my mind thinks that i have to work throug the system, get to know self and more and more people. Maybe i should find other worlds and maybe just maybe there are places where i never imagined that existed and in turn fulfilled what i most trully desired...Freedom and love.

So you can say its another personal wall for me and a dedication to all you Lain fans who understand and venture out of you silly walls and boxes and see the world differently not like some generic people who see it like a complete cycle which goes on and on and on and on...maybe i am just rambling but its the damn truth.

So in light of all this is my 5-6th wall of Lain... got this image from Moloko from MT and kudos to the artist Yoshitoshi Abe for drawing such good images from his imagination. Did lots of overlaying, small texts and techies, duplication and gaussian blurs into one big bonanza of a feast. I especially love the Poem, "Insert text" and especially my dedication text at the bottom...but who cares...you will also find a small shadow at the back of her if you think its some discoloration but nonetheless shes on some paven path.

So all in all its a humping 114 layers and less than 3 1/2 hours.

    There are enough dark SEL wallpapers and especially not enough of such a high quality.
    Great work as usual. :)

    ps: You should write a book.

    I can't believe i really read all of that. Well, thats a half hour I'll never get back.
    its nice to see someone put their feelings to their wall though, i guess.
    I wish i could explain myself like that. I'm not sure if you're talented, or just
    really experienced. Maybe both. I guess I'll just have to throw you props, because
    this one is really well put together...

    that's just the wallpaper.

    I'm not so deeply involved on anyone's philosophy, but I guess this wallpaper can speak volumes more than words do.

  23. SirMackerel Oct 31, 2004

    Great wallpaper! I love yoshitoshi (sp?) abe's character designs... it's a shame that there's no Haibane Renmei section here... (or is there?)

  24. mentis Nov 11, 2004

    I feel like Lain many times as well. I think that is what makes it such an incredible anime. It accurately portrays the predicament of our generation and our time. I think many, perhaps too many of us can identify with Lain. Sometimes I wish that I could unite us all in this emotion, and embrace it. It is too much to put into words. ...Thank you.
