    Guys,

    That latest batch of illustrations is pretty bizarre. Are we seeing caricatures of Hitler, Saddam, and Tojo in those? Are they implying that these wonderful little massagers are actually torture devices? Strange and a bit scary, if you ask me, very much into a BDSM stream of consciousness. I think I prefer my own image of eastern philosophy –
    A seated, benignly smiling Buddha (with a Peridise enjoying a Paradise). But then that's just my particular outlook, obviously the person who drew those sketches has a very different take on this whole experience.

      Rumel-

      Sorry, didn't mean to disturb you linking those drawings. I thought they were too goofy to be seen as sinister.

        The_Bishop,

        Hey, there's no need for you to feel sorry, to you they were “... goofy...” and I can certainly see that. What I find somewhat disturbing is the artist who penned these is obviously thinking about these situations and is putting certain racial/cultural stereotypes into the scenes. There are thought processes depicted here that go much deeper than “goofy”. I am fairly confident a psychologist could spend considerable time delving into this individuals mindscape and exploring the events for which these images are symbolic representations.
        Now, having said that, I don't mean to imply they have no merit. 'Darwin' saw them in a completely different way. This is one of the unique qualities of art, to invoke emotional responses from the viewer. What may initially be disturbing, may be a deliberate attempt by the artist to communicate information or prompt the viewer to ask a number of internalizing questions. That process can then lead the viewer to a greater understanding of himself/herself or some other subject matter. Then on the other hand it could simply be 'grafitti', sometimes it is both. It is up to the individual to make their personal decision which is which.

          Yeah those other images are disturbing.
          There is nothing remotely attractive about them and they have a somewhat insulting
          appearance.

          I say we write our book and publish it guys.
          I can read enough japanes to plunder the enemagra Bible and do some kick ass art. )

            Hi Everyone,

            The images from that link The_Bishop posted are not actually in the book itself. They are "interpretations" of some of the pictures. Kind of strange that someone would take the time to do such drawings, but who knows.

            The images in the Enemagra Bible itself are not of the racial/stereotyping variety, just funny and strange.

            thanks,

              I hadn't recalled seeing them there...I was beginning to wondering if I'd missed them.

              I'm not sure if this was tongue and cheek or someone "outing" their dark fantasies. Whatever the case, I'm more inclined to agree with Rumel on a more uplifting and benevolent interpretation of the ecstasy of the Super O.
