XVII-Tower ~ a gestalt look


The Tower- three different descriptions of the action within the image.

1- the Tower has lifted off and is slowly floating to a better place to land

2- the fey has been rescued by the birds crashing & breaking into the tower

3- This is a 'freeze-frame'. It's that moment in time when the whirlwind stops and everything just holds position for that split second before int falls to the ground

Tower or elevator?


1. I'm not in Kansas anymore, am I?
(Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz when she recognized that her former world/environment no longer seemed to exist for her).

2. Should I think I'm insane or am I having fun?
(Disorientation of place, time and process should suggest insanity not curiosity).

3. You can't find an answer until you have a question.
(Build, re-build, un-build -- how do you find a context for change?)

As my first introduction to the Fey, this card (and the others in the set) really cause one to find some deeper meanings in the seemingly simple pictures. Lots of fun. Dave.

1. The Fey has travelled back in time to the days of pterydactyls (sp?).

2. The Fey seems resigned to his/her fate of being stuck in the Tower.

3. The Tower continues to rise but the structure's base is cracking - how long will it last?

Hope I got the gestalt idea right: First step - just description of three different aspects of the card

XVI - the Tower

1 - There is a castle in the air. Losing ground and all connection to it. In fact the connection gets lesser and lesser - more and more bricks are getting lost.. But maybe they are the fores that drives the tower upwards - like the engine fire thrusts a rocket to the stars. Something has to be given away to rise further on...

2 - The contrast between old times and new times. A man (or fey) built castle and the archaic flying dinosaurs. They don't mind that there is a man-built object flying around.

3 - Here we have the fey pilot looking out of the window of his flying tower. He knows that the tower is lifted by some nebular forces from above - they won't let it fall. Thus it doesn't need the lower bricks, they may fall off... doesn't matter anyhow

The tower-

Your foundation is shaky, the tower is falling apart.

Stuck in the clouds, to many daydreams not enough reality can really make things fall apart.

The fay itself is indifferent to the situation hes in and needs to take it more seriously.

Tower


1. The Fey had a dream that his house was flying through the air surrounded by green dinosaurs.

2. The Fey realises he should never have trusted the guy who laid the foundations.

3. The dinosaurs think their air space is becoming too crowded.

QUESTIONS~


The Fey has travelled back in time to the days of pterydactyls (sp?).
- how did he go back in time?
-What is the Fey looking at?
- What will the Fey go to next?

Stuck in the clouds, to many daydreams not enough reality can really make things fall apart.
-What was the Fey supposed to be doing?
-what will he do now?
-How does he feel about what has happened?

The Fey realises he should never have trusted the guy who laid the foundations.
-how does he feel about this?
-what does he need to do now?
-does he have other choices?

1 - the fey has been rescued by the birds crashing & breaking into the tower
- Why do the birds care whether the fey is rescued or not?
- If the birds are crashing into the tower, how much does it hurt?
- Did the fey really want to be rescued?

2 - The Fey realises he should never have trusted the guy who laid the foundations.
- Is it too late to cancel the check?
- Why is the Fey always so darn gullible?
- Will the foundation be able to be repaired now?

3 - the Tower has lifted off and is slowly floating to a better place to land
- What if the Tower falls on another structure?
- What kind of propulsion entity allowed the structure to take off in the first place?
- What if it lands in a "worse" place?

1. Your foundation is shaky, the tower is falling apart.

- why is the foundation so shaky?
- what will I do when the the tower falls apart?
- how long before the tower collapses?

2. The Fey has travelled back in time to the days of pterodactyls.

- What's a pterodactyl
- What was the journey like?
- How long did it take to get here?

3. Here we have the fey pilot looking out of the window of his flying tower. He knows that the tower is lifted by some nebular forces from above - they won't let it fall. Thus it doesn't need the lower bricks, they may fall off... doesn't matter anyhow

- how does he know that the tower is lifted by nebular forces?
- why doesn't it need the lower bricks?
- how do you know it doesn't matter?

Question questions...


Quote:
contrascarpe96/tower
1. The Fey has travelled back in time to the days of pterydactyls (sp?).
- Does he have to time-travel? In fey-land the Pterodactyls still are alive, aren't they?
- Is there a common ancestor of feys and Pterodactyls?
- Isn't time an illusion at all?


Quote:
Theia/ tower
Stuck in the clouds, to many daydreams not enough reality can really make things fall apart.
- Who judges 'too many' or 'not enough'?
- Doesnt it work the other way round also? (if everything falls apart - start daydreaming)
- Isn't falling apart something quite natural?


Quote:
mooncat2/tower

3. The dinosaurs think their air space is becoming too crowded.
- Oh, Dinosaurs can think?
- Wouldn't it be even worse when there are lots of bricks flying around?
- Are there different air corridors for dinosaurs and fey-tower-rockets?
