The Great Anachronism
a surrealist vignette
About this creation
I have no interpretations for the surrealist vignette this time. There is no overarching theme or personal meaning. It was visualized from a mental image a year ago and depicts a spaceship stuck through a floating rock, where the tip of the ship has transformed into a tree. Perhaps you'll find some meaning, please share :D

The meaning: It takes years and years to make metal out of the resources from the earth, which are made by centuries of dead animals, dead plants, etc. As it made of those very materials, there is a possibility that it carried some of there souls, over the eons. If it has, it could create a soul to live in that creation for eternity. A rocket isn't made of just one material, it is made of many materials, joining those souls together. The electricity in that ship must of not been made by just the nuclear power. It could've also be powered by the solar grace while it was created, and other natural materials, but also the souls. As there may be living things and "nonliving" things, those "nonliving" things are actually living, just deep inside that creation. So, the rock has either one big soul, or a bunch of souls. As the rocket of souls crashed into the rock, it made a being strong enough to power nature into the area of anti-air. [NOTE: If you think I used the word "soul" too much, deal with it. I put a lot of thought into that! The least you can do is appreciate it. Please.]

The reality we immerse ourselves in exists on such a fragile base... (i.e. The woman is a normal person, one of us, in her perceived reality, which al rests on the spaceship-damaged and fragile. The roots of the tree represent that the real world is more devious and inhospitable than we think...)

very good. for a meaning how about 'nature always reclames itself' as metal (e.g. the metal in the ship) would be found in the ground and nature has taken it back. just an idea

As William Leue commented almost a year ago (August '09, I think), this is definitely reminiscent of some of Hayao Miyazaki's films (I was rather thinking of "Spirited Away" from 2001); initially though, it also reminded me of the 1978 Japanese animation series loosely based upon A. de Saint-╔xupery's "Le Petit Prince" which I watched in the early 90's when I was but a child... as for the interpretation, this calls to mind the same two words that I have long associated to my memories from "The Little Prince" anime (particularly from a scene where he hurts his finger with a rose thorn): "beautifully sad". BTW, it would be great to see you build some Le Petit Prince MOCs, seeing how this asteroid turned out! Peace and Freedom!

A very neat scene! I would have liked the idea of just a spaceship crashed into the rock, but it still looks great!

very cool! I don't think that has anything to do with human vs. nature. I guess it could mean that everytime someone dies, a new child gets born elsewhere...the minifig on top is in sorrow for the loss [represented by a minifig standing in front of the flowers of a grave], but at the same time cherishing the beauty of [new] life. The phrase to catch this scene would be: Life goes on! ;) And thanks a lot for the blog entry ^^

Nanaan, this reminds me of Hayao Miazaki's anime movie "Laputa: Castle in the Sky." If you are not already familiar with this film, it is worth watching. -Bill

My Interpretation of thie MOC, is that one day mans technology will fail and nature will bond mans power and transform it into something we hardly even knew was important, and as you can see, mother nature is planting a new seed of generation, a genration of when man will someday... Someone please finish it.

My interpretation for this moc is much alike many others, but further developed. The rocket symbolises mans power of creating things that is powerfull, however it has failed and crashed through the rock, on the other side of the rock is a tree growing showing that nature can do some things we can┤t, sometime nature outwits mankind and is stronger and more sustaineble. On top of the rock is a man (or woman as other has sad) and a flower. The man have the power to either care for or either destroy the flower, nature is man┤s subordinate in this instance. This moc expresses that even though nature can make things much more complex and stronger than man it is sometimes fragile, and that mankind has the power to either dominate and destroy nature or help it. That is my interprintation and I like it even though it isn┤t dark and grimm (and surreal) unlike most of your creations storys and poems.

Five smiles, though my first impression was of a bearded gourd stuck in a rock.

I think it means that the rock is what mankind has left of Earth. The Rocket crash is how technology will eventually fail, the tree is that nature will grab hold of Earth anew, and the woman planting the flower is Mother Nature starting nature over again.

I think that it could mean this: Even something(or someone) with little heart can grow to blossom...like a tree. it is pretty cool but I am not sure what that guy is doing on a floating rock.

Strange but awsome. I like it symbolizes the fact the one day you will run itto a rock. ut eventually your body will decompose into soil and grow a tree. the circle of life. your born, you get a spaceship, you crash it, you turn into a tree, tree dies, parents buy a plant, plant makes them wanna have kid, your born.

Well, i kinda-sorta think it should go a bit like this: Mankind will never be as powerful as nature, but nature will never be as powerful as mankind I just get that from the fact that rocks are natural, and so are trees, but the spacecraft is man-made and being consumed by the rock, meaning that nature has triumphed over the manmade spaceraft? Of course, nature gave us life.

From a distance it looked like (to me at least) a blue whale consuming a giant squid. The only thing wrong with this idea is that the whale has sprouted a plant, and a minifig is standing on top of the whale. But what's new? It's a whimsical world, is it not?

Well, I don't know what to say, but your tree roots look strikingly resemblant to your Black Fantasy models, and does anyone notice the skeleton embedded into the tree?!?!?!?! Anyway, It seems to show the Oblivious nature of man to his undescribable surroundings, captured by a single flower. I Don't even know if that was me talking. WHATS GOING ON HERE!?!?!?!?! WHY AM I TALKING THIS WAY!?!?!?! I GOTTA GET OUTTA HERE!!!! Very Cool, Very Wierd.

The rock is the most beautiful floating rock I have seen. The ship that has skewered the rock is brilliant; as is the man appreciating the flower seemingly oblivious to the ship. The tree... more like a pimple on the butt of a Playboy model - just seems out of place. But it is the lack of a poem that cost the fifth - I do so enjoy reading them. Lee.

Wow! I think is the meaning. In the middle of the day, a curious gardener, working in the heat for several hours, stumbles onto one of the awe spectacled flower. Not caring of his surrounding, the flower is really a death parting of one of the lost...
