The Nova Pods


We all come from star stuff, according to astrophysicists. I may assume, then, that at least one of the particles of my inner left elbow was once part of a distant sun.

Equally impressive, as vast and complex as the universe is, its entirety is comprised of a limited set of elements. Science intervenes at times, directing those building blocks of matter to become this or that.  Sometimes the cosmos spits out a platypus on its own.

What the bleep is the thing in this picture? What series of un/natural molecular events unfolded to result in such foreboding weirdness?

Picture Ving Rhames or Glenn Danzig doing Pilates.

Posturing in vain.
