What's the meaning of this picture?

For all other chat which isn't directly related to lucid dreaming and the world of sleep and dreams.

My joke fell flat with you, nesgirl, but I think others got it. (I was making fun of how guys see sex in everything. I was making fun of that, not your picture at all. :D )

Anyway, I'll tell the story about my avatar picture. The INCREDIBLE artist who mastered 3rd grade finger painting who made this was, me! 8-)

Snaggle wrote:#5 Something an artist created to mess with the minds of people whom want to know what it is.

Close. That was why I made this thread, but not why I made the picture.

My brother gave me a paint set for my birthday to play with and I didn't know what to do with it, so I decided to try and paint an image I saw during a hypnopompic dream I had. It was after a dream, and still had my eyes closed and I saw a simple image I can't forget. It was several years ago, and yet still remember it.

There's no way my artistic ability would do it justice, but I tried anyway, and it sort of works in it's simplicity. The actual vision I had was much dimmer and there was a vague image of a long shelf with one end vertical as though it was a book end, and the rest of the shelf was devoid of books. But drooping off the edge was a vibrant, glowing, green blob. But when I saw it, I had the undeniable feeling that the green thing was alive.

Then I woke up.

It was short, but made me wonder why some objects in dreams, even though I have never seen them before, and are nothing like any other living organism I know of, feel alive. (That could be another whole topic).

As for the painting: I wanted the green blob to be the 'light source' of the painting and make it glow, and reflect off that 'shelf' as I call it, but that is very hard. (Beyond my ability). So I added a curl at the end of it to make it seem like it's not falling due to gravity, but rising up again to give a hint that it has control, hence alive. So that's the meaning.

I wanted to see if others detected any 'life' in this even though it's just a few simple shapes. As it turns out, you all did!

Vonazar got it: "A simple life form perhaps"
Summerlander and JeJe got it: Sperm on a couch or even jizz from another world is also alive. (dead, but animated?... don't know how ghosts procreate ;) ), but it does look like a flagellum doesn't it? I didn't notice that before.
nesgirl got it: Add a tail to the ball, and it makes a simple shape seem alive doesn't it?
Snaggle got it: That entity that 'body snatched' President Bush and made him act stupid and say all those crazy things has now jumped ship and is inhabiting Barrack Obama like a puppet master, and it too is green. It's a monster called, Money! ;) It's alive! And trying to gain citizenship. "Corporations are people, my friend". - Mitt Romney. :roll:

Nice work, Hagart! I like the idea of recreating your vision and seeing how others interpret it.

I'll be perfectly honest I saw a green sperm, exhausted from all its efforts and climbing onto a couch to have a rest....

What came to my mind each time I saw your pic: A sperm typing at a computer laptop keyboard.

Maybe that sperm is using a simulation program to investigate all the possible genetic outcomes of his future encounter with a specific egg?

So it wasn't just the guys who saw dirty pictures in this Rorschach Test.
Reminds me of a joke. A psychiatrist is showing random ink-blot pictures to a patient and keeps asking him what he sees. The patient replies, "Sex". He's shown another one and again, "Sex". Over and over. Finally the psychiatrist says, "I think you have an obsession with sex", to which the patient replies, "What do you mean? You're the one showing all the dirty pictures!" :lol:

I joke! If you saw sperm, that is more scientific than pornographic. It does look like a tail or flagellum on it doesn't it? I'm glad I asked because I never noticed that before. But sperm is a simple life form (what I was going for), the fact that others saw a 'life-form' in it means the painting works.

I already wrote my reason for it, and what I saw, but it does make you think about how others responded and how it reveals a lot more about themselves and their interests.
If we all lucid dreamed this world would be a better place.
