Surreal Collage Part 1

Posted in Uncategorized on September 22, 2009 by billymaysisalive

3. Surrealism, is an art movement that began in the early 20’s. It involved some very dream like images that often involved philosophical ideas.

4.The Elephant Celebes (1921) by Max Ernst

The Persistence of Memory(1931) by Salvador Dalí.

5. The theme of The Elephant Celebes is basically the elephant in the room type thing. It is so big and strange that it can’t be avoided.

The theme of The Persistence of Memory is that  people waste time and in the end only memory remains.

6. The elephants body reminds me of a kettle or pot. And then we have the mannequin which albeit nude still resembles a mannequin.

The clocks albeit melting are still clocks. And a cliff type thing is present in the background.

7. The main body of the elephant looks metallic. Its trunk is a hose and there is an animal like nose with horns on it at the tip of said trunk. It also appears to be a seat on top of the elephant. There is also a naked mannequin or headless person.

The are melting clocks and ants coming out of a clock. There is a large object in the center that I’ve always thought to be a walrus for some reason. And in the background there is a cliff and a some water. And also a smooth surface in the background.

8. The artist meant to say the horror of the war machines of his time.

Dali most likely wanted to say that time is irrelevant.

Talk about L. Ron. Mention dianetics and the founding. Talk about the xenu arc. Treatments depend on individuals. After all results may vary applies to everything. The fact that many famous and influential people have joined proves nothing. Consider that all the big religions have many influential people among its ranks. The people attacking the group need to realize that people have the right to make choices and that if one chooses to join the scientology then no one should interfere. My opinions on it are that people have a right to choose and just because some people claim to have a bad experience with the group that doesnt mean its bad. I mean if it helps anyone at all then it cant be all bad.


L.Ron was honorably discharged from the navy, with no readmission.

After a video of tom cruise saying what amounted to nonsense was uploaded to the internets. sci church threatened to sue video sites such as youtube. the internet group known as anonymous started protest world wide.
