I sat on the bed. I looked at the rorschach blot. I tried to pretend it looked like a spreading tree, shadows pooled beneath it, but it didn't. It looked once more like a dead cat I once found, the fat glistening grubs writhing blindly, squirming over each other, frantically tunneling away from the light.

But even that is avoiding the real horror.

The horror is this: in the end, it is simply a picture of empty meaningless blackness.

We are alone. There is nothing else.

-- Watchmen, Issue #06, by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons

Battle not with monsters lest ye become a monster. And if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.

-- Freidrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
