Q: is this deep web/an arg/the occult? A: "no."
Q: what inspired you to create this website? A: "many things. the act itself was inspired by other websites, which are named and linked to in the about page. the story itself, however - the stories, rather, are inspired by a large sum of things. the aforementioned websites perhaps, but also the life events and media that have shaped my worldview."
Q: why a website, exactly? A: "i find net art to be very, very fascinating. there's a magical sort of flexibility and capacity for creativity in expressing yourself through a website. the story i wish to tell, and the thoughts i wish to invoke... there was no other option."
Q: how did you make this or that image? A: "well, i have a few very different approaches i'll take depending on what i want an image to be. what's pretty consistent though, is using paint.net, gimp, and various plugins for the two of them in tandem to achieve it. i often do not have a plan going in, but the image knows what it wants to be, and will bring me to such a finished product."
Q: what is the meaning of all of this? A: "i don't know any more than you, but... something very special, i'm sure."
Q: can i get a hand with this or that puzzle? A: "sure! my advice is to spend a great deal of quality time with the puzzle. some may be timid, but you just need to listen closely, and offer it flowers of thought. your puzzle-solving woes will not last long with such a plan."
