This is so trippy! I just finished reading Robbins’ Fierce Invalids Home From Hot Climates today. When I read this passage, I thought I had to find a place on the forum to share it, and found your post.
“On January 25, 1938, much of the Northern Hemisphere was dazzled and panicked by what has been described as the most dramatic and bizarre display of the aurora borealis in recorded history. Undulating bands of vivid color, wide, violent, and continuous through the night, were accompanied by snapping and crackling sounds, causing thousands to believe that the world was ablaze and doomsday was on the front burner. Less than ninety days after that awesome atmospheric laser circus, Hitler marched into Austria…” Sound familiar?
Now don't you dare to think this is a coincidence!
And wow - I never thought about it that way. What if a young Hitler, aspiring artist/painter and madman, was fiddling around with dark rituals and what we got later on was just his Evil Doppelgänger? From the Black Lodge, of course...
Or even possessed by BOB or a similar spirit!
I must know, I'm Austrian. Hee-hee...
PS: joking about Hitler of course. It's a way of coping with all the bad sh*t he and his supporters / the Nazis did. F*ck them. I hope it's not "getting too political" to say bad things and poke fun of those guys, at least in my country it isn't - it's called being uptight and correct. Even their logo and ways of greeting are forbidden by law over here.
