May 2017 Challenge of the Month ~ CLOSED!
« on: April 30, 2017, 11:04:13 PM »




BE SURE TO READ the light blue italicized part below! Those are the challenge parameters.


"Some time in the Summer of 2017, what came to be called 'The Quantum Weirdness' appeared upon the Earth. People and creatures began popping into and out of Alternate Realities or Parallel Universes rather too handily. It was made worse by the fact that well...it was reciprocal...and the ones from the Parallel Universes were appearing HERE!


The 'doorways' seemed always to open from something visual: like from watching TV, playing a video game, reading a book with images, or into a monitor on some form of computer."



"The History of The Quantum Weirdness"





Your challenge for the merry, merry month of May is to show us what's coming through and where your characters are ending up. What strange worlds, situations and predicaments do they find themselves in, in any given moment? Are you in an alternate Earth reality or time, or place? Are you in an utterly alien place? Is it almost like some fantasy world? Is it a gaming world? How did you get to this place?
 

Do an entire series of images or single 'worlds' - just be quantumly weird and/or surreal about it. As always, the number of entries is unlimited.



This contest shall run until Wednesday May 31st, 2017 - until MIDNIGHT (12:00 AM) -EST


So welcome in the COTM for May ~ The Quantum Weirdness and do enjoy it!

Have you ever thought you saw a shadow or even a blurry figure out of the corner of your eye, but when you turn to that side to look head on, there's nothing and no one there? Chances are, you may be seeing some one or something from a Parallel Universe that is moving faster than we are, and slows down just enough for you to catch a glimpse of it.

Think of plucking a taut string (like on a guitar) or a spring on a screen door and then letting go of it. Notice that doing this causes the string or spring to move very fast and become somewhat invisible. It's kind of like that.

Or if you would care to think of *branes* which are like giant bubbles that contain a Parallel Universe to our own colliding with our own or just even barely touching ours. This is part of Quantum Physics as well and about the simplest way to explain it. When they are touching, we can presumably enter their universe and they can enter into ours.

The reality of our universe is really pretty weird. So let your imagination run wild folks. There just has to be some sort of visual medium in the image where this can happen as in the image above.

You DO realize what a can of worms you've just opened up don't you??  :heeheehee:


Oh, if only.......  :pleeeeez:

I'll see what my twisted mind can come up with....
If all is not lost, why can't I find it??  :thud:

It's an intentional can of worms, my dear. I want you all to just be weird. :tearlaugh:

Ah yes, I remember this image! Yes, that would work. Sort of like "Cool World".

For now, I'm trying to imagine what might look like Kianna in another reality. :ummm:
Not an easy task, I think I should give up. :tearlaugh:

Mirrors OK as visual medium?

I'd say yes, but the rule setter is not me. I would think though that reflections could be a great medium for this. Afterall the second story of Alice was 'Through the Looking Glass'. She returned to Wonderland in that story, which is an alternate reality.

Mirrors are really quite a learning/thinking tool, imo. I'm quite fond of them myself and I'd have to say that "Through the Looking Glass" is probably what got me 'going there'. Then again some of Jean Cocteau's movies often had mirrors in them like "Blood of a Poet" and "Beauty and the Beast" that influenced me as well.

Put yourself on the other side of the mirror, looking back at the world and even yourself and what do you see (?). How do you perceive it? Can you be completely objective about it instead of subjective? They can be completely weird or enlightening, or even shocking. And they can certainly be portals to another place or realm.
