Uroplatus phantasticus  by Paul Bertner

What do you know of the worlds that surround us? What do you know of this cosmic mystery? Many hands try to grasp it. Theologians speak about God and Christ, about higher forces and heaven and hell with university-bravado but without any firsthand knowledge. Priests try to connect you with a world of which they know nothing. Spiritualists and clairvoyants wallow in the black vapors of the earthbound, which cause sickness in both body and soul. And then there are the parapsychologists, those who want to make an academic science of the extrasensory, with professorships, lectureships, and doctorates; those who want to explore the plan of God, the essence of God, with their intellectual faculty. There are the astrologers who, because of their links with the Persian-Chaldean culture in former lives, see everything in terms of aspects, planets, and lunations. There are the pyramid fanatics, who try to explain the essence of God from the stones without any inner renewal. And there are people without number who search and search, grasp and grab for the unfathomable mystery without any result.

Yet these things must be known!

this is…shameless calendiles fluff. all of it. collected for the reading convenience of my wonderful co-captain and friend @callistofisto

i can’t believe my team leader is a meme: the new series on mtv

  • Can we appreciate the fact Hades offered Nico a room at his palace in the Underworld in case his son dies in battle, because he doesn’t want Nico to feel like he’s got nobody and that he’s got his Dad no matter what? That’s some special treatment there. Nico doesn’t even need to be judged or whatever to be placed in Elysium or any fields in the Underworld–he’ll go straight to the palace.
  • Can we appreciate the fact that Hades’ gift to Nico’s birthday was a French zombie–who was a professional racer–to be his son’s chauffeur that Nico can summon anytime and anywhere to take him literally any destination in the world?
  • Can we appreciate the fact that Hades protected and saved Nico (and Bianca) when Zeus wanted to kill his Italian children, because Zeus didn’t want any child of Hades to be the child of the prophecy (and lost his beloved Maria di Angelo in the process)?
  • Can we appreciate the fact that Hades wanted Nico to be an exception from all his children in the past, and wants Nico to be genuinely happy despite fate’s cruelty to any child of the Underworld?
  • Can we just appreciate this one last fact that Hades loves Nico so much and obviously his favourite child because he knows his son suffered the most than any demigod simply because Nico is his father’s son?
