December 22, 2020: Reckoning 59

Post by Z6IIAB » Tue Dec 22, 2020 12:50 pm

I wonder if 2020 will eventually realize what D-corp has done to her... or if she'll "go home" and forget anything happened. Also, where is the bomfed stork taking her? Also, it's interesting how bomfed animals doesn't seem to "work for the devil".

Bomfing seems to be all over the place in terms of effects. For one there's Tange's story, then there's L'il E still learning to bomf, and whatever happened to Fushcia's lessons from Vainglorious about protection from the reality zone? Where does this cross over into Johnbie and mirror world territory? Among other plotholes or retcons or what have you, the true nature of bomfing and what it symbolizes may very well be open to interpretation.

I mean, Tange has been drop into TheLete lake so... that might explain her goofiness, even thought she was boomfed - also because, originally, she was just a sweet human countrty girl. I guess li'l E always had problems taping into his demon powers. Also, I guess if he remembered what he used to be like, I'm not sure if he wants to go back to that hateful persona. He seems much better now. I guess bomfs have nothing to do with johnbification. Also, I'm starting to think bomfed people and animals aren't necessarily "in the Devil's side", more like just feral and a little evil? Yeah.

Truly the irony in how the Devil's son learns to bomf only -after- losing all his evil, huh? Even today's strip reveals the complexity in how all these forces interact with each other symbolically. Also what does this make of mirror people? They're... Devil people? Potential bomfs? They have crossover just like where female Johnbies are kind of an overlap. If Tange's bomf was alleviated by lethe yet animal bomfs are ambiguous where does that leave us? There's parts I'm missing here though the arbitrary aspect of all this speaks loud and clear-- like, say, South Park, this is a comic that responds in realtime. Alive itself in a sense?

I will also point out that at my church's Christmas Zoom, something strange happened. At the end of the sermon, a porn audio segment started playing. I have a sneaking suspicion this could have been deliberate, although it could have easily been a slip of the keys, sure. Having quit porn years ago, I'm familiar with some of the intro tunes, and immediately muted manually just in case. The implications are enormous. We are entering into deep fake territory yes. One day we'll have someone wear some Google Glass and not quite realize the suicide in front of them is the virtual one, in essence a fake fake, therefore entering meta territory beyond our current limits.

Porn at the end of a church service? Wow.

Sounds like the Reality Zone was attempting to break through with a vision of the truth behind something you consider pure and good.

My spin on it was that music itself isn't necessarily bad after all. Though this kind of stuff will happen in my world, yes. Just like with Devil people and such, I suppose it can be a spectrum.

It's a prank with implications about safe spaces and virtual realms is what I'm getting at. The internet is not so benevolent to man all the time.
