What do you think?
I love this! Now I’m imagining a huge codex, illustrated entirely with comic book details. Do you know “The Codex Serafinianus? http://nowhearthis.posterous.com/codex-seraphinianus-luigi-serafini
I love your idea, John. And thanks for introducing me to the awesome and wonderful Codex Serafinianus.
I have heard much of these human emotions and foibles. Yet only now do I begin to grasp them. A terrible beauty is born.
A Bad Codex reduces signs to mono-meanings. Bad Codex! You chisel down Symbolic Infinities to the globally standardized dimensions of the common clothes peg. Bad Codex!
Bring us the 4CP Codex. Good Codex! Depth brings horror, delight and confusion but no revelation, no chiseled resolution. To float in the 4CP is to stare without knowing. Good Codex! Fine Codex!
