"I AM I THINK, THEREFORE, I THINK I AM."

These are the words B Strange uses to describe HerSelves in relationship to her personality structure.

"I'm on the ultimate ID trip. I let my EGO take it from there," she says.

Diagnosis: TRIPOLAROIDAL TRIPTOGAZMIC DIVERSEDEMONESS REFLEX (TT3-D2RX).

B Psycho

Three effective windows access and activate the primary functions of Barbara's psychological universes.

The first window is, of course, the very reflection of her Strange Selves, both being Opposite Direction Reflections (ODR's).

The result of activating through this first window is Barbara Astarte, the reflection of Strange.

This polarity is HEMISPHERICAL.

The dual nature through which B Strange 'recognizes' herSelves is accessed via the second window. Barbara Wyrd is the activated personality of Astarte's Self-reconciliated reflective opposite. It must also be noted that the distinction between Astarte and Wyrd is simply subjective. Indeed, they are sisters. If one becomes rampant and unpredictable, the 'Other' is able to fit neatly and conveniently each particle of subterfuge into its proscribed department.

Stone Barb

 

When activity is set in form, modus in situ operandi, the most X-treme effect is Barbara X. THIS IS THE PART OF THE X-PERIMENT WHERE THE DOCTOR BLOWS UP IN THE LAB AND THE MONSTER BECOMES MADNESS. It is also the comatose priestess of the oracle. These are the deep, dark halls of Barbara's underworld. Barbara X is the proverbial and ritual crossroad, the corpus callosum par excellence.

 

 

 

BARBARA STRANGE: A CASE STUDY

HypnoTriptologist, Dr. Z demonstrates the theory of transitional personality metamorfusion on the subject,

Barbara Strange. Strange is diagnosed a bipolar class 1. The full range of episodes 'happen' from the mildly manic

to catatonic features with post-partem onset, recurrences manifesting

in incendiary outbursts followed by deep trance states.

 

The session begins at the local coffee shop. The opening ritual begins with the prescribed Mocha Latte XXX espresso. Several minutes after the elixir is administered, Strange reacts by stomping her heels and raving incomprehensible utterances and creates a 'scenario', thus transforming into a red gowned java-vixen. The immediate effect is only very temporary, fortunately, as other occasions have been known to produce even more volatile reactions.

Pok Barb

In more acute episodes, Strange has been known to go into Hypergasm, assuming the form of a broom riding harpie, and one or more occasions has bitten

the finger off a curious bystander. Strange seems otherwise disposed to 'Doll Breaking' episodes

if only to return diligently to the tasks of re-assembling themů

interchangeably 'Altared', however.

In this particular session, Dr. Z utilizes the Transtrip Hypnofusion technique.

Dr. Z: "What does the child see as her opposite inside the Wyrd mirror?"

B Quin

B Wyrd: "The opposite of the child is an adult. She does not play with her dolls right. Innocence sees wisdom. Light sees through the mirror backwards. Because she breaks off all their little heads and pokes them with needles. Ra sees Hades. The cobra sees a vulture."

Dr. Z: "That mirror is the illusion revealing the opposite truth of ones selves. It is receptive, yet it acts upon you.

What happens when Sekhemet reflects Hathor and likewise?"

 

B Astarte: "Blood and wine become mingled. Opposites blur and create an elixir. I see ice over obsidian hills and rivers of mercury."

B Wyrd: "They take their dolls to the grave with them. They take them down down to break them apart and reshape the universe."

Bar Black
   

 

Dr. Z: "Am I speaking to Barbara Wyrd?"

B Astarte: "You are speaking to Wyrd."

Dr. Z: "Take me down to where they bring the broken pieces."

B Wyrd: "You will need a key to get downstairs where she keeps them."

 

The polarities between the two distinctly X-pressive personalities that manifest in

Strange remain yet to be reconciled.

Bipolar 1 disorder as recognized in DSM IV, however,

does not diagnose Triptogasmic Reflex disorder.

Lemp Strange

B Astarte relates to herSelves through the appearances of Wyrd. At this point in the interview, she produces a knife and cuts carefully into the Wyrd reflection, rendering the white blanket of snow into a crimson lace. The obsidian hills and rivers of mercury run red. This is the land of broken dolls, she says, she 'knows' the way to that place where they are taken. A little girl's pretty white dress that they weaved for her is stained with blood and wine.

 

   

Barbara Astarte has taken the direct road that turns suddenly and from there, it seems her Wyrd sister pilots the journey.

She carries a torch, the passage being quite the dark voyage.

The interviewer's identity must be concealed and is bestowed a black cloak and medallion. The dialogue proceeds.

Dr. Z: "I am speaking to Wyrd, am I not?"

B Wyrd: "A girl's fine white laced dress is bloody and sweet. A child gathers together the pieces and passes them through the fire here."

Dr. Z: "What then is this?"

B X: "Her name is the weaver, uniter, huntress, war, binder, protectress, crossroads, lover, and queen of whips.

The full moon is not her true face but a reflection of some light.

Her true face is the dark side."

What appears to be the subject, Strange, is really one of the many confusing and subterfugal manifestations of her personalities passing over the fire with her knife a grotesquely reassembled doll or fetish. It is monstrous. This particular ritual ends when the last call for X-presso sjots closes the coffee shop.

ARSENOE

After the expulsion of the Persian dynasty from Egypt, Grecian culture and the Hellenistic world had influenced art, commerce, and even agriculture in the land of the Nile. Here is a portrait of Arsenoe, the wife of Ptolemy Philadelphus, inspired by a sculpture originally part of a temple in Heliopolis that ended up in Rome where it was found in 1710. The style and iconography is conservatively Egyptian. The policy of maintaining temple art in its traditional sense probably helped to gain native support or even to appease the gods. As for Arsenoe, her legacy was rife with controversy, mystery, love, and corruption. Thus, she became, in her own right, the subject of an epoch as extraordinary as any in the passages of Egypt's magnificent history.
