A friend of mine posted this word game in
alt.gothic . I can't really get into
the specifics until you do it yourself. So, do you want to play?
It's very easy. What ever you do - don't scroll down to the
bottom of the page until you do it. If you do, you ruin the whole
This is what I visualized. My desert looked like something out of Star Wars. There were a lot of dunes (which is highly suggestive of sensuality). My cube was red (hot tempered, passionate) and about 10 feet high (confidence, egotism, domination etc). It looks like it is made out of stone (loyal, devoted, obsessive etc) and is very shiny (ambitious). It sits up on a hill.
My ladder is your typical wooden ladder (sentiment) and it leans up against the cube (likes to be close and involved with others etc). My horse was a brown (normality, warmth) mustang (streetwise). It didn't have a saddle or anything on it (erotic). It was running towards the cube.
My storm was off in the distance (have a realistic awareness that trouble is omnipresent possibility, as well as an ultimate inevitability). There wasn't any rain - it was just a lot of purpley-type clouds (clouds=depression, apprehension). My flowers are purple and are at the base of the cube (take a protective attitude toward my creations).
Well, that's about it. The remarks in parenthesis are very brief. The
books go into a *lot* more detail. It's really fun to go through it. I "cubed"
a couple of people during lunch one day - it was quite interesting to hear
what their picture looked like. What's even *more* fun is to "cube" a couple.
It's funny to hear each of them describe their horse. Very insightful. ;)
