This is a 2006 song. A copy of the lyrics are at http://artists.letssingit.com/the-philo ... z2PalGYwkN. The picture in the earlier reference and the lyrics to the song are rather similar to what is going on here. Any connection?

You realise that, since BuffyGirl proposed udscbt, you've been confirmed and rasterized without ever being nominated...

Ah, I don't know the Latin -> Italian shifts well yet, so I thought maybe "ex-" -> "as-" had happened, kind of like "sp-" -> "esp-" in Spanish and "sp-" -> "ep-" in French had happened. I'm still working on it.

Quest progress: 126 out of 243 pages.
Operation Connect Castle. NP 201.

I have lost track of the newpix I have spent traversing the thread of Time. Newpages flow into newpages, an endless pouring of semen-laced coffee into a glass that will not fill. I exist in a world of perpetual deja vu, for I have seen the present while the posts I read codify a long-ago past. I know Megan will return, in Time. With a trebuchet. Yet the posts I read have not witnessed that epoch, and whisper only of trebuchets in their dreams. Beyond this only lies madness. Perhaps I am already mad.

Either way, it is now time for me to conclude this message-in-a-bottle and proceed deeper into this hopelessly tangled thread.

I think what we have to take from this is that there is no more castle outside the frame, unless the entire thing is sitting on top of another castle in an expanding fractal.

WHich I find unlikely, but not impossible, if the sand is made of semencancerbabies, while the sea is made of semencaffeinecancer.

It's a multi-level recursion. Randall is the Creator of Time. Cueball has created Time on top of his sandcastle, thus making him the Creator of Time. And if he's adding himself to his creation, adding to the Droste effect, well then, we're down a very deep rabbit hole.

It's an allegory to the cyclic nature of Time and the thread. Common themes keep re-occuring, and so does the scale model of the sandcastle itself.

I think he's trying to make a scale model of himself sitting on the beach.

With that, I vote we dub a new period. The allegory period. When time became a metaphor for itself and its followers.
