03:38 am - Creators Meeting their Creations
Here's a recently and quite wonderful video about Alan Moore meeting Occupy protesters in Guy Fawkes masks, derived from his creation V. This article also linked to a more general article about comics authors meeting their creations.

The first piece is quite inspiring – the thought of seeing one of my ideas made real would be amazing and indescribable. It's right up there with this wonderful incident that happened to Samuel Delany in terms of things that impress me with the power of art.

However, the second article interests me even more, in large part because I share many of Alan Moore's views about magic and imagination, as well as a long-term interest in characters and personality. Much of the second piece is about exactly the sort of spirituality and magic that I'm interested in – the ability of subjective phenomena to travel from one person to another via all manner of means.

It occurs to me that I should do more meditations and ritual work focused on this sort of thing, perhaps with some of my own creations, perhaps with the creations of others that resonate strongly with me. I'd be interested in hearing more from any of you who have done this.

This is definitely interesting to me as well. The comments on the first article kind of annoyed me... yet more mass agreement by society to Miss The Point and exclude such things from consensus reality, because they're more worried about how they look to each other.
