Buried in recent history and dropped into an 11 kilometer freefall descent to the bottom of the Marianas Trench is a non-Euclidian object containing the blood DNA of 5,000 people
Kristian von Hornsleth would be the first to describe himself as provocative. A man who plays with the image of being off-the-wall and crazy.
Yet nearly 2 years ago, with very little fanfare and enough publicity to avoid the notion this might be a secret project with an ulterior motive, a ship held position over one of the deepest parts of the Pacific Ocean and dropped an object over the side. The object, designed by von Hornsleth was an 8 metre by 8 metre sculpture, apparently made of steel – although investigators of the Mythos will know how structural details can be blurred, such as the use of a magnesium-tungsten alloy to form a spiritual super-antennae. Von Hornsleth’s creation has the hallmarks of a non-Euclidean trans-dimensional anchor.
“But more wonderful than the lore of old men and the lore of books is the secret lore of ocean.”
All of this is unusual enough but then consider the fact the sculpture has been loaded with human blood and hair. DNA capule or components of a ritual to bring out a crack in the Quantisphere and bring about the return of the Great Old Ones. H.P.Lovecraft must be raising a bemused eyebrow.
The publicity statements behind von Hornsleth’s “Deep Storage Project” focus on the idea that science is… progressing faster than the greatest philosophers dare to predict, so who’s to say that there won’t be a point in the future when these samples can’s be utilized to bring people and endangered species back to life? It could be 500 to 100,000 years from now. Who knows? But this is a chance to be there when it happens!
The Deep Storage Project is fighting back against the natural decay and erosion destroying all that we know and understand. People are embracing the ideals of the The Deep Storage Project, and in doing so, they are becoming a voice to be heard in the future.
I wonder. A future under the yoke of high priests ruling over a shattered Earth? Where cities lie smashed in the slimy wake of Cyclopean monsters that finally came crawling out of their deep sea slumber. If the designs of the Elder Gods fail then H.P.Lovecraft and Alan Moore will be heralded not as morbid visionaries of a fictional alternative reality but prophets foreseeing the doom that is yet to come. The flip-side is that von Hornsleth’s dream may come true – that a future descendant of humanity, or whatever evolves to take our place, will find this treasure trove of DNA and have the technology and ability to resurrect us in a construct to study and understand. Or maybe that is what’s already happened – and this is where you and I actually find ourselves right now. Paradoxical and ironic, right?
