Greetings and salutations!

Finally, after a few years of procrastinating and hesitation, I've finally come to the decision that I should venture forth and see what this wonderful community has to offer!

I've been interested in Steampunk for several years now, but I've never quite had the confidence to branch out on my own to explore its strange and wonderful opportunities.

As a creative writer, I'm also hoping that this will give me some ideas into a persona, and an idea for more stories and yarns to spin in the future!

Thank you for your time!

Imachinathorium Ambiguum ( Press release 20/12/2013 )

It is now my profound belief that the Uni-verse, indeed the entire cosmos, is a song. Yes, a song composed of multi-verses harmonized into One. This belief was inspired by the creation myths I encountered while visiting cultures from many worlds throughout the cosmos. Patametaphysicians have long suspected this theory and today I am convinced of its validity. The cosmos is the divine love song of the Great Goddess: Éther N'Elle, also known has the goddess: Elle est terre nue or again also known as Tetrahedra and again under a multitude of other names according to which culture you belong or that you happen to be studying.

Furthermore I have linked this creation myth with it's antipode the so called destruction myth. Which gave me the following proposition formulated thus:

La Déesse Éther N'Elle, Elle est terre nue et

Elle Éteint celle qui N'Éther plus.

However since the cosmos is a perpetual regenerative motion

we must add the following final proposition:

Plus Elle N'Éther qui Éteint Celle et

Elle est terre nue la Déesse Éther N'Elle

This then completes the expression or if you like the refrain.

Latest News from the Imachinathorium Ambiguum

Professor Gustave Morbeus announced today that the Patametaphysical encyclopedia is now almost complete. Know in the more arcane cirlces as the Great Universum Compemdium Andthensum, this encyclopedia comprises everything known, knowable and unknowable.

News from the Imachinathorium Ambiguum

Professor Gustave Morbeus the Empire's PataMetaphysical authority confirmed today that he was successful in harnessing the creative potential power of his recent discovery the elementis fantasticuus now known as Absurdabstractium. 

Prof Morbeus would not reveal the secret of the technology utilized in this process but indicated that the apparatus involved the use of a quantum cerebrum interlinked with his brain in order to stabilize the otherwise evasive elementis. Morbeus also indicated his intent to make use of this virtually limitless source of creative energy to power his inventions.

Comment by Professor Gustave Morbeus on November 30, 2013 at 1:37pm

Professor Morbeus the foremost specialist on Absurdabstractiuum warms

that this elementis is extremely unsubstantiable and that he is currently experimenting

to find ways of isolating and harnessing this vast source of creative power. One member of the empire already expressed his interest in this elementis to power his fleet of steam airships.

Further more Morbeus suggested that if he is successful this discovery could lead to yet another paradigmatic invention shift.   

More on this in a future report.

Dear Countessa

Thank you for the heads-up it is most appreciated. However as I am new to this steamy sphere realm any public appearance is out of the question, for the moment that is. Rest assured that once my avatar is of satisfactory stature that situation will change. Please come and visit my page as I have been posting some modest data and images about my creations. Also I should point out that for the time being since my homeworld was devastated I intend to make your capital city my place of residency. I will therefore be opening a branch of the Institute of Ambiguous Unity right here in Ottawa, and I am moving my Lab the Imachinathorium Ambiguum in your fair city. 

Best regards Madame

Gustave Morbeus

Professor of Patametaphisics
