House for Quasi Phantom Regions

Country House with Hip Roof B8090 by Torsten Slama 2016

Country House with Hip Roof B 8090
(Oils on canvas on wood, 50,3 x 62,8cm)

This house is for the lover of open country, but with no need for the flora and fauna usually associated with it. It is a house for the Frommian necrophiliac. This country lies on the surface of a planet roughly the size of Earth, but much heavier and with a very thick, almost water-like foggy atmosphere. Consequently the ground resembles the deep sea floor on Earth. A hint of some form of vegetation, either aquatic or coniferous can be surmised or easily dismissed in the milky background. Tastefully arranged on the premises are one replicated Silurian nautilus shell, various simplified crystal sculptures made of polymethylmethacrylate coated with transparent SiO2 thin films in hues of yellow, pink, and green, and several geometric primitives of synthetic plaster. The house itself is the sparsely ornamented, simplified version of a terranean postmodern country house catering for the aspiring single person or couple in the lower medium affluent income range and has the catalog number B 8090. It is especially suited for the writer of semi-popular fantasy novels. Note that it comes without garage, as such is not necessary on a planet without any destinations to travel to. The windows, though ostensibly made of some glass-like material, are either covered from the inside with blue boards, or the whole house might be filled with some blue tinted medium or nutritive solution. The inside of the house might be dark, artificially illuminated, or not existing. The owner or owners of the house might be immaterial, but still in need of spiritual nourishment, provided by the large space crystal floating in the dense, soup-like sky.

Haus am Horn – A System House for the Modern Couple

April 7, 2016
Muche, Gropius, Meyer, Haus am Horn, 1923, Bauhaus, Drawing from 2016, this drawing ©2017 by Torsten Slama

Gerorg Muche, Haus am Horn, 1923
(A3; 42×29,7cm)

This house, a monument to the phallic guilt complex of modern patriarchal architecture, lives in a place of rich historical meaning for a certain variety of people. The hypothetical new owners, formers employees of the local financial institute which co-financed the costly renovation and restoration of this model building for the system family, exerting their ownership rights and overriding certain restrictive laws concerning historical hallmark structures, tried to add to the concept by painting the building a strange variety of pink, and placing a gaily painted totem pole of western American red cedar in the style of the indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest coast of North America on the premises. A nice wooden smell wafts through the area which is repellent to the common clothes moth, tineola bisselliella.

Looking at photographs of the original edifice, one is befallen by a baffling mixture of internal reactions. The masculinity of the design coexists with a maternal womb-like character achieved. The legend of the immortal uterus turned into stone. A 1923 drawing by Farkas Molnár, entitled “Georg and El Muche and the Haus am Horn” reveals a certain hetero-erotic dream aspect of the original concept. Before the erection (sic!) of the building, the land served as a vegetable garden for the local school for architects. Look at this 2016 drawing. Discern the different symbolic items distributed over the picture. A pole, a hose, a ball, a wall, a building. Generic vegetation. A Mark 1 inoculator floating in the sky above the chimney.Atmospheric rendering © 2021 by Torsten Slama and the International Wedding Ring

Haus Ziegler, Lepsiusstraße 112, Berlin-Steglitz

Hugo Häring, Haus Ziegler, Lepsiusstr, with 1936 Opel Olympia
(A3; 42×29,7cm)

Colour correctness of this image can only be approximate. Possible peachy hues befit the intended atmosphere. This building can still be found at the address Lepsiusstraße 112 in Berlin Steglitz. This rendering depicts it surrounded by vegetation not typical for this region. The rest of the setting is fairly accurate, though partly guesswork. The German car in the foreground is of exactly the same date as the portrayed edifice. While the building is starkly modernist and, indeed, conceptual, the car is a slightly Germanized and downsized version of a Ford car. Picture the building as an old and also moderately neglected farm house in Vermont, picture the car as a Ford, and try and consider the person inside the house. This person is not the engineer Fritz Ziegler, but a different kind of character. After having unsuccessfully tried to stay of a beleaguerment by local aliens which are indeed not aliens but a kind of native sort of aliens (or, “Old Ones”), the original Ziegler was transferred to a metal cylinder while the actual person inside the house is not really a person but one of those said aliens, who has taken the place of Ziegler. You enter that place, expecting to find Ziegler, wanting to discuss his predicament. He, it, she (the impostor), is sitting in an armchair, has a buzzy voice, doesn’t move the lips while talking almost inaudibly, and occasionally nods to lend the mask it is wearing  a semblance of liveliness. Also, a pair of gloves are needed to hide the claw-like appendices. The legs are altogether useless, since their chitinous character makes them awkward and noisy as tools of propulsion on the medium of a wooden floor. It is good that there is a car in front of that house. If you are able to operate it, you might be able to flee this place. Some people might consider that angle in the house’s front as the most telling of its evil modernist hallmarks. In truth, it can be easily imagined that that angle, once you have gotten used to it, endears you to this place. What with that special kind of decorative and frost-resistant facade, the clinkers arranged in an order called the “Prüß-Verband”.Atmospheric rendering © 2021 by Torsten Slama and the International Pro Brick Society

Natural Gas Generator for the Eurasian Market

November 9, 2015
Natural Gas Generator painted by Torsten Slama

Waukescha Natural Gas Generator for the Eastern European Region and Asia (45x34cm, oil, spirulina, and glitter pigments on canvas mounted on wood)

This painting, as subtly alluring in its pallette as in the choice of special and unusual pigments, cannot be adequately represented in photography (even when captured with a sensor especially suited to register finest colour nuances without sacrificing exactitude and focus). In fact, even the human eye is a sensor too coarse and surface-bound to understand that painting in this case is not only the coating or covering of a surface with paints of appropriate consistency and opacitiy in a way which concentrates too much on the where and too little on the when, but the loving and time consuming application of a multitude of layers of different degrees of opaqueness or transparency. The ultimate goal is not recognizable or symbolic representation, but the creation of an image with depth, in which even the first insecure tracings and irregular activities of a tentative and searching brush are still detectable under a potentially limitless number of successively applied layers, each adding its own share of happy accidents. The resulting depth is never a strictly two-dimensional and optical phenomenon. The true painting of value always has unique and custom made surface characteristics. The author of this painting is indebted to the teachings of the late Bob Ross, but chose to go the way of stretching production time instead of compressing it. By doing so, he could circumvent the adverse effects of a rushed production, namely that the perceived overall quality of the product suffers under a glance more scrutinizing and resting than fleeting and cursory. This painting is intended to satisfy on the happy accident level as well as on the level of more method-result based western observation systems striving for overall recognizability, structure, and order.

More content related thoughts about the desirability of finding interdependent grid solutions for the application of small unit solutions to medium scale energy requirements over unified and in most regards more hazardous, if theoretically and practically more efficient, large scale energy production solutions, will not be amplified upon here. This space is dedicated to the discussion of technical merits of the painting, not of the depicted object and the ideas it represents.Atmospheric rendering © 2021 by Torsten Slama and the International Interdependent Energy Grid Board

World Wide Instrumentation Centre with 1912 Packard Landaulet

World Wide Instrumentation Centre for the Betterment of Mankind According to Tellurian Principles © 2021 by The Instrumentalists, Dr. Hecate Ecdysone, Torsten Slama

World Wide Instrumentation Centre with 1912 Packard Landaulet
(A3, mixed media, © 2013 by The Instrumentalists)

After the great unification of all continents into one supercontinent Eufricasia-Panamerica, the need for a coordinated world wide interactive system of communication and production is stated and instigated by the Instrumentalists. The whole world joins in multilingual agreement, and thus a Centre for World Wide Instrumentation is set up in Tripolitania, formerly district of Libya. a medium-grade metropolitan area located nearly exactly in the geographical centre of Eufricasia-Panamerica.

If vagueness, ambiguity and symbolism are reactionary forces bringing unrest, totalitarianism, and war, World Wide Instrumentation, with the totally concise and logical flow of goods, services, and communication it provides, will pave the way to a bright future of love and happiness. The dangers of a chronically crisis-ridden world economy or the inadvertent cross breeding of all sorts of squirrels into a race of super squirrels can be easily averted by the world wide employment of completely standardized instruments of measurement, production, transportation, and communication. A universal currency will soon be followed by a universal language for communication between people, animals, and machines: POYUTL, a language consisting of three consonants and three vowels, 21 syllables, and thus, using the well known formula of Newton, a total of 210 two-syllable words, which can express about everything. Thus, according to Tellurian principles, one Tellurian deity, OUY-PYTOLU, will come into being, a sentient and conscious superorganism, composed of all people, animals, and things on the surface of the earth and under.© 2021 by Hecate Herma Ecdysone, The Instrumentalists, Torsten Slama Historical Society

Bungalow for the Magician

November 18, 2012
A retreat for the Magician

Bungalow for the Magician, 42×27,9cm (DIN A3),
pencil and coloured pencil on paper

A temporary country home for the Magician. The Magician specializes in making people vanish. His spells are potent only in that way. In all other ways he is a very unassuming, normal type of person. Working his spells draws on his overall spiritual energy, leaves him exhausted. Lacking any formal education, he has to rely on his spells to sustain him economically. He saves enough money through appearances in hotels and at festivities in small-town multi-purpose centres during the holiday season or through engagements on cruise ships to be able to afford a simple country retreat for his free time. The cellarless and easily relocatable building features a miniature pool and fitness related equipments to allow him to replenish lost energies through careful, peaceful training in solitude, meditating on a wild nomadic tellurian future. Other items related to spirituality (the stylized magician’s hat as protective cover for very delicate saplings), and sexuality (the orgonic sea-shell) are also part of the basic lay-out.

The house is available in similar form for all people interested in country retreats in wooded regions off the coastal areas, where lot prices are affordable and bird sounds and occasional appearances of badgers, ferrets, or racoons delight the well-honed biophile sensitivities of the gentleman tramp.© 2021 by Herma Ecdysone, Kurt Schessmanweil, Torsten Slama

19th Century Farmhouse Revival Unit

September 24, 2012
Drawing of a 19th century farm house in Furtwangen, Schönenbach/Schwarzwald with modern sculpture made from gold plated square tubing in the foreground.

Black Forest House with (51) Pegasi B Square Tubing Sculpture
297x420mm, pencil, coloured pencil, copper leaf

Drawing of a  synthetic housing unit in the 19th century farmhouse revival style, located in Furtwangen, Schönenbach/Schwarzwald, with a mid-sized modernist sculpture in the foreground. The building hides its stilted construction under a deceptively massive outer hull made from  shingle and plaster, replicated in hard foam.

The modernist sculpture in the foreground, made from gold-plated square tubing, as used for vent shafts in extrasolar habitats, stays in harmonic contact with the floating space crystal and its recharging unit, thus establishing a meaningful connection between heaven and earth. The harmonies created are those of the rainbow and in a strictly diatonic minor (aeolian) scale. However, an important component of forbidden bulk second-harmonic generation is inseparable from the surface contribution in all practical experimental situations.

Freshly washed linen hanging from a line demonstrates a keen sense of order and cleanliness, balanced with enough taste and humanity to appreciate the beautiful artefacts created by faux decaying plaster and mock age-old brick work exposed which lend the house’s beautifully crafted outer coating its unique charm.© 2023 by Herma Ecdysone, Torsten Slama, Manfred Gorre, International Publications World Wide

City Church “Böblingen”

May 22, 2012
A city church for medium sized towns located beyond metropolitan regions in Europe

City Church “Böblingen”, 297x420mm, pencil, coloured pencil, gold leaf

Concept sketch for a city church. Spiritual energy levels in Central European cities and municipalities are in rapid decline. This development is not limited to European soil, but a worldwide problem. Decline in spiritual energy levels can be easily linked to the decline of criminal energy levels. Smoking bans, optimized street illumination schemes, and safety measures of all kinds make the reliance on spiritual energy to prevent hazardous accidents superfluous.

Certain measures can be taken to raise spiritual energy levels. Worship centres afford an opportunity to practice humility and are therefore the means of choice to raise spiritual energy levels.

This design is especially suited for medium-sized towns located beyond metropolitan regions in Europe. The architecture is unobtrusive, with a light touch of Wilhelmian moodiness. The building has a compact form factor, can easily be prefabricated in great quantities from lightweight plastics (e.g. NALDENE™ by Thermo Fisher Scientific) and anchored where needed. Crystal spawning rocks scattered in the area create an esoteric mood, openness for revelations. Floating above is a cheap, nuclear powered energizer unit in the process of charging a small space crystal.© 2023 by Herma Ecdysone, Torsten Slama, Manfred Gorre, International Publications World Wide

Black Forest House with Mossi Figure

Lamassu/Shedu House "Janus" with ancestral figure of the Mossi tribe (Drawing by Torsten Slama)

Black Forest house “Janus” with Mossi ancestral figure (42×29,7cm, 2011)

A home for the pattern recognition therapist and his family in a mildly crystal-spawning setting, characterized by its gently rolling layer of powdery soil. The place is ideal as a retreat for the Lunar type who wants to escape the Solar world.

Two openings in the basement are permanently accessible to ensure a smooth functioning of the household machinery. The therapist and his wife, who works as a lawyer specialized in copyright infringement and such, and is out during the day, share a bedroom suite and an annexed two sink bathroom under the roof. The children’s quarters, with separate entrance, are located in the back of the first floor. The therapist  his office in the frontal, thatched-roofed, lobe of the first floor. The office is soothingly illuminated through two large multi-colored windows. The entrance for patients is blocked by a large-scale replica of an ancestral figure of the Mossi tribe during sessions. The statue moves only when a secret slot is fed with a magnet card, of which only two copies exist, one for the master, one for the mistress.

The above-described family arrangement is fictional only. In truth the whole house is uninhabited and serves as a giant demonstration of the Jungian model of the human mind, complete with subconscious, atavistic mind, everyday consciousness (Real-I), and the lofty attic (Ideal-I), all separated into Anima- and Animus-dominated parts by a roof which, for reasons opaque to the modern, after-the-fact observer, is divided into a thatched and a shingled section. © 2017 Torsten Slama and International Publications Organisation World Wide

House “Djibi” for the Friend of all Animals

February 9, 2012
House "Djibi", painting by Torsten Slama, only authorized photographic reproduction

House “Djibi” for the Friend of all Animals. (Oil on canvas-covered panel w/ aluminium coated ornamental frame, 40×53 cm)

House “Djibi” is named after the cat-novel by Felix Salten. Some cats, a dog, and other animals are living and dying and killing each other in the house of an elderly school teacher and his wife. The teacher is grappling with a mild identity crisis, being undecided whether he is too soft of heart, and wishing himself to be stern and unrelenting, before deciding that he is, indeed, a soft sort of man.

Before being assigned its final title, the painting had a working title referring to August Derleth’s house-centered novel “The Lurker at the Threshold”.

The painting tries to look rather encrusted as opposed to smooth. The clouds are trying to look like clouds painted by Walter Leistikow. Flake White Hue and Transparent White were heavily used. Some areas do look like details from Cuthbert Hamilton Ellis’ paintings: rough and unfinished impasto effects prevail in an otherwhise naturalistic but unacademic style.

This is the photographic reproduction authorized by the painter. There exists another photograph of this painting, discernible by ghastly colours and flat lighting, made by a careless professional with a good camera. True appreciation for a given subject in many cases is much better than indifferent technique and superior technology.

See also these verses from “Sophia Trenton: A Moral Poem” (Phi Beta Cappa Poem at Stanford University, June 19, 1920) by Leonard Bacon, as quoted in Donald Knuth’s “The TeXBook”:

Technique! The very word is like the shriek
Of outraged Art. It is the idiot name
Given to eff ort by those who are too weak,
Too weary, or too dull to play the game.

House “Borstel” with Floating Icosahedra

August 8, 2011

Half-Timbered, Thatched Roofed House near the River Stör with Group of Icosahedrons (297 x 420 mm)

Half-timbered brick house, typical of the marshy regions along the banks of the Stör river. The Stör is an artificial, straight, canal-like river with lovingly detailed riverbank flora, allowing for rich biodiversity, right tributary of the Isabgol, greatest river on the northern hemisphere of the planet Schüssler, which orbits around the sun Arsenum Jodatum in a minor galaxy.

The freely floating group of eikosahedral cages of Sigma-2, commonly called icosahedrons, is part of a scattered cloud of platonic solids which was created to protect vital parts of the planet’s surface from the deadly rays of its sun, thus enabling terraforming to render them habitable.

The illustrated house is the dwelling place for a pattern designer. The nearby willows, overall humidity, gurgling river sounds, create an inspirational atmosphere for the artist dealing in intricate interlocking form-processes.

Thatched Half-Timbered Brick House (Frisian Style) with Newtonian Prism

June 11, 2011
Thatched, half-timbered brick house Frisian style with Newtonian Anti Goethe Prism

Thatched, half-timbered brick house in the Frisian style, with Newtonian prism, fully synthetic, located in Uurd II

This country home in the Frisian style offers shelter for progressive democrats of the protestant northern variety (deep sunk eyes, long nose, pallor of skin) with a taste for the traditional. The pattern designer living in this house enjoys her Bünting tea with rock candy and cream.

The house features a conventional Space Crystal accompanied by a free-moving prism made of a special ultra-clear aluminium compound, commemorating Newton’s discovery of the fraction of light and his victory over Germany’s Goethe with his idealistic notions about the distribution and nature of colours. The house itself is made of hardened plastic foam blocks in the style of bricks and framework. It is lightweight yet offers superb thermal insulation.

The two trees on the left are of a very rare succulent variety first described by the eminent space plant historian Rick Skrebus: Arborum Astrolobum Uitewaal-Darling.

The crystals in the foreground are of the urobilin-coloured variety. Urobilins are the breakdown products of the bile pigment bilirubin. Bilirubin is itself a breakdown product of the heme part of hemoglobin from worn-out red blood cells. Alchemists believed them to be a special transmutation of gold. © 2017 Torsten Slama and International Publications Organisation World Wide

Non-Aristotelian high-speed Passenger Train

April 29, 2011

Non-Aristotelian Passenger Train after Gustav Reder (A3, pencil and coloured pencil on paper)

This Non-Aristotelian Passenger Train, connecting two subterranean cities on the Planet Gorre, can be seen here racing at full speed through the very hot desert Daphetid, whose sulphuretted carbon sands catalyze a photochemical conversion of atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia by sunlight.  Days on the Planet Gorre last for 376 Earth-hours, and at midday this desert becomes so hot that spontaneous gestation of Salamanders (Caudata and Urodela) occurs.

The Train is modelled after an Edwardian original, but is based on a completely different kind of technology. Whereas the original depends on fossil fuels as a propellant, this engine uses completely different concepts of power generation, based on Alfred Korzybski’s findings as laid out in his General Semantics, E-Prime. It forms an inseparable bond with two elongated Space Crystals, one working as a regular pumping lemma, the second one as the much more powerful Ogden’s lemma, providing extra energy when particularly hot areas have to be crossed at extra high-speed.

House "Brussels"

April 12, 2011

House "Brussels" with Space Crystal and Charging Unit

This is a not too modest habitat for the well-to-do space traveller seeking a quiet and well secluded retirement haven. This scene shows the all-nourishing space crystal being replenished with essential polarized light with an s-like plane of incidence. This s-polarized light (s meaning senkrecht or, alternatively, sigma) is the light class of choice for a maintenance factor which is slightly deeper than broad, which means it is best suited for a person with deep-set eyes and a melancholic character with a tendency toward brooding, an educational type, tinged by Slavic characteristics, which can be considered representative of a special, slightly narrow-minded but noble humanity.

The joy in speculation and disputation, the tendency toward brooding and meditation, the craving for distances which can never be reached, that plunging into depths which can never be fathomed are more apparent here than a strong sense of reality, an openness to new ideas, or delight in humor and satire.

Experimental Moon Unit

Experimental Moon Unit, drawing by Torsten Slama

Experimental Moon Unit Design (Pencil and coloured pencil on paper, A4) (c) 2017 by International Publications Organisation World Wide

This housing unit for a family of four is designed to withstand extremes of temperature, dry rot, low gravity conditions, and is shielded against cosmic rays. It can be implanted with or without basement into any sufficiently dry surface, and is superbly coated to remain in good cosmetic condition even after years of use. Its lightweight construction allows for assembly from small parts in situ, yet the resulting form seems sturdy and solid. It therefore fulfills the psychological demands of its occupants for it to be protective, sheltering, and sufficiently shielded from the outside.

The special static properties of the Moon Unit render it unsuited for planets with gravity higher than 0.3 g, therefore, despite its low price, it is not to be used as a basic family unit for settlements on the planets Earth, Venus, or even Mars, but extremely well suited for the planets Mercury and Pluto, the Moon of the Earth, Phobos and Deimos of Mars, or the moons of Jupiter or most of Saturn’s moons, and the 13 moons of Neptune.    Experimental Moon Unit Design (c) 2017 Torsten Slama and International Publications World Wide

Modern Bungalow - Night Ocean House (A4, pencil and coloured pencil on paper)

In the year 2072, thanks to the invention of the Schessmanweil Field Generator, interstellar travel at the speed of light and above will finally be possible. Due to several unforeseen consequences of the theories of  special and general relativity (especially after the introduction of non-Aristotelian Logic and non-Euclidian Geometry)  at speeds faster than light, resulting in a very wide margin of uncertainty about the behaviour of time during those travels, the return of a small percentage of early interstellar travellers can be awaited as of the year 2013.

The above design is part of a project for a secure living environment for those space people, where they can live peacefully, yet conveniently accessible to the information seeking scientific community.

Further design examples in a growing collection can be found here.  (c) 2017 by Torsten Slama and International Publications Organisation World Wide

Early Model Space Crystal Inductor

Speculative Rendering of a Space Crystal Inductor hovering low over the Surface of the Moon Psychopompos

Space Crystal Inductor hovering low over the Surface of the Moon Psychopompos

This speculative scene depicts an early model Space Crystal Inductor (SCI), hovering low over the surface of the moon Psychopompos which revolves in a large orbit around Pneuma, an unclassified planet of an unlisted star in the Large Magellanic Cloud. The medium-sized gaseous planet Pneuma can be seen in ascent, along with its second moon Klops IX. The SCI is fitted with an embedded crystal of high density, uni-polarized and small-scale. On Psychopompos it hopes to find infinitesimal lodes of rhombohedral methylin-3 crystals which it is to inseminate through its novel Ka-Band TE 21 second-harmonic gyro-TWT amplifier beam, thus catalysing an advanced crystalline growth, resulting in at least one new Space Crystal, which will then commence to levitate by means of its self-generated magnet field, to be guided by the SCI to its new home-planet, where it will be docked to a Human Settlement Unit (HSU), which it will guard and provide with energy on all wavelengths.  Copyright (c) 2017 by Torsten Slama and International Publications Organisation World Wide

Space Crystal Relay Station Schessmanweil with Ascending Maintenance Drone (pencil, colored pencil, gold leaf, 21×29,7cm, 2010)

This is one of thirteen design proposals for the experimental settlement Neutopia-Schessmanweil, a home for members of the Tellurian section of the Schessmanweil religion. The illustration above is a vital part of the colony’s service section, located in its northern part, Schessmanweil; a relay station which functions as a receiver for the sun worshipping rays of free-floating space crystals, modulate the frequencies around the n-spectrum to change them into tellurian energy particles, amplify them, and create a tellurian power dome around the settlement. The receiving unit itself is fairly innocuos, a standard model four-pronged poyutl, but needs constant maintenance and re-calibration of its vibration rate. This is done automatically and without human interference by the fully computerized maintenance drone also depicted. In the background some red brick private houses in the hills for the well-to-do lay priests.

HBATEC Meat Factory (Oorth)

August 26, 2010

HBATEC Meat Factory (Oorth)

A pictorial representation of a more modern meat factory on a planet in the Oorth Cloud. The dark sand surface of this planet turns it into a very efficient accumulator of the orgone-type energy its star emanates. The whole planet thus turns into a giant SAPA-bion breeder. The SAPA-bions are retrieved by means of special underground attractor devices and used as the raw material for meat generation. This factory is a gigantic scale recreation of its smaller sister plant, the original HBATEC Meat Factory, a former secret missile silo in Uurd. It will soon make this much smaller plant, which produces comparatively impure meat, obsolete, and is able to produce healthy, anti-cancerogenic, and highly nutritious synthetic meat for entire galaxies.

HBATEC Meat Factory

June 15, 2010

HBATEC Meat Factory (Uurd); formerly The Secret Missile Silo

This factory for the fully automatized production of synthetic meat, owned by the HBATEC corporation, is housed in a former secret missile silo. The residual background radiation in the area stimulates the growth of artificial meat cells, renders the use of antibiotics to prevent bacterial infections unnecessary, and ensures a certain degree of privacy to the undertaking. Artificial meat is not considered desirable, but soon will play a vital role in the global diet plan. The Chinese-Turkish HBATEC corporation recognizes global needs before they become public desires. HBATEC is also one of the chief suppliers of the highly specialized biotechnological transistors employed in mood organs all over the galaxy. This meat factory is located in the approximate center of Uurd, a vast desert on the planet Wolf XII in the Draco Cloud. Its nearest distribution centers with spaceports are Gorre at the southernmost tip of the desert, and Daphetid, located in the foothills of a mountainous region to the north.  Copyright (c) 2017 by Torsten Slama and A.

Teleportational Gateway on the Planet Uurd

March 30, 2010

The Win-Win Multi-Dimensional Gateway, Planet Uurd, Schessmanweil-Neutopia

The following text is a mildly revised excerpt from “The Manual: Teleportation by Means of the Kind Light and the Diagram of a 4-Dimensional Object.” by Gottstein Strohkopp, P. U. Blisher, Ginnungagab, 2017
[…]
4. The above image is a 2-dimensional depiction of a 4-dimensional object. This object is related to a cube in the same way in which a cube is related to a square. We call this object a “Qube”.
5. Concentrate on the image above. Try to see the inherent plasticity of the depicted object. It should gradually begin to appear like a floating, 3-dimensional object, detaching itself from the background.
6. Concentrate more, try to see the regularity of the object. Try to discern one side, of which it has 32 identical ones in total. Concentrate on that side and declare it the side nearest to you. This is your referential plane.
7. Concentrate on the fact that this plane is connected to one plane which mirrors it and is at the same time projected onto three dimensions: a cube. In connection with your referential plane, you now see a “Qube”.
8. Superimpose the idea of the place you want to visit onto the referential plane of the Qube. Make it into a mental, 3-dimensional model of that place. Connect it now to the mirror plane, and project it onto the fourth dimension.
9. Now be extremely careful. Focus your awareness, regulate your depth-perception, contract your field of vision. You should not be able to discern the monitor in front of you, nor any part of your actual surroundings, but only the 4-dimensional image of the place you are going to visit.
10. Concentrate on this image, stop all other thought processes, fall asleep.
Note: once you start this process of teleportation, it is inadvisable to suddenly interrupt it at any point. Sudden interruption at any point will lead to undesirable effects, ranging from mild disorientation to the complete unhinging of all mental faculties, resulting either in temporary catatonia or symptoms similar to those exhibited by patients suffering from Huntinton-Chorea (Veitstanz).
11. You should now awake at your destination. You can move there freely, and return at will by mentally stimulating your sympathetic awareness center.
Note: this does not induce a “dreamlike” state. You will not experience flashbacks, disconcerting locational jumps, or other disturbing phenomena common to dreams. You will actually visit the desired place, you will be able to walk about and even interact with objects. This ability to interact will cease whenever another person comes into perception range. This includes being watched by video devices etc. You will be invisible to others and will not be able to move, you will be in fact locked in position, as long as any other person will be able to perceive you, be it on the auditory, olfactory, or visual level. Therefore you will not be detected. You can either wait in that locked state until the person leaves perceptive range, or return by the method described above.

The Quasi-Euclidean Boibel-Loth

After two regional blackouts in 2017, The Western Systems Coordinating Instrumentality (WSCI) will institute guidelines to verify that, for grid connected generators, the stated data represents accurate information that could reliably be used in the dynamic modeling of the system. It will be of vital importance for the future of world-wide energy reliability to archive and catalogue all experiences with the applications of WSCI’s test guidelines to mid size units built and commissioned by independent power producers.

The above-illustrated “Quasi-Euclidean Boibel-Loth” is a novel design which addresses concerns with the excitation and voltage control systems and their limitations. It is an example of a generation unit connected at the end of a long line, and demonstrates variances associated with testing and operating under extreme conditions. The concerns and issues observed are of importance to IPPs beyond the WSCI’s system as many other reliability councils are adopting rules similar to those established by WSCI.

Essay on Interplanetary Communication: Thoughts in Space. A Speculative Rendition.

This artificially bred space crystal, ten times more dense than an ordinary diamond, yet super-lightweight, is installed in the center of an impassable desert on the remote planet Elorg and converts solar light rays into mental energy which can be transferred to human minds and induce heliocentrism, or sun worshipping,  a quasi-religious, symbolistic mental attitude which is instrumental in creating or maintaining hierarchical, evolving, essentially unstable societies.

The atomic grid of this crystal is dense, but very loose, so that the carbon molecules are oscillating in a random pattern, and the optical properties of the crystal are that of a non-linear amplifier. The complex-refractive-index spectra with an anomalous dispersion around a J-aggregate absorption band are randomly changing, thus ever new, hypnotic patterns are being produced. The golden four-pronged poyutl in the foreground samples the light patterns and serves as a converter from optical to mental wavelengths. The resulting encephalographic patterns are sent to a relay station, which broadcasts the mind-patterns over entire galaxies. This is an experimental installation. The crystal is held suspended in mid-air by photon energy.     Copyright (c) 2017 by Torsten Slama and Gottstein Strohkopp

Cooperative Raiffeisen Institute "Wilhelm Reich"

Cooperative Institute “Wilhelm Reich”, Oil on Canvas, 90x170cm, 2008

This cooperative institute of the Raiffeisen-type serves as a trading post, information exchange place, and a general department-store-type administrative center for settlers on thinly populated planets or asteroids. It can replace an entire economy as a regulatory device. It functions without a currency, without money, without any unit of economical accumulation. Thus, it ensures the well-being of all without the creation of unnecessary boundaries between haves and have-nots. Raiffeisen-type cooperative institutes effectuate a loosening of all economical muscles in a planetary society, and so this particular institute, located on the planet Oog-Ronn, is logically dedicated to Wilhelm Reich, who invented the vegetotherapeutic procedures for loosening the muscles in a human organism.

This institute, like many other institutes of its kind on similarly far-off planets without natural satellites, harbours a school for the Boibel-Loth alphabet, to propagate lunar knowledge also on moonless planets.   (c) 2017 by Torsten Slama

Holzfabrik/Wood Factory (Oil on canvas, 124x88cm, 2008)

This experimental wood factory, code named “Thomson&Co”, is located  in northern China, 150 km east of the capital. It produces synthetic trees and constitutes a major effort, paid for in part by international trusts, in part by the Chinese government, to combat global warming.

Its future purpose: located on other planets, it will be critical in producing an artificial sustainable atmosphere. (c) 2017 by Torsten Slama
