Nietzschean abyss eyeballs

Eyeballs for personal garden abyss

A set of eyeballs, to be placed at the bottom of a small - say 8'(l) x 3'(w) x 8'(d) - abyss dug into your lawn so that "when you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss also gazes into you", thus adding a certain Nietzschean flavour to an otherwise humdrum Sunday afternoon in the garden.

       I have fairies at the bottom of my garden.

       Are they in an abyss? Or do you have decking?

       I much rather see Nietzsche's abyss straight on. Because, let's face it, if you're looking down into it, it's clear who has the advantage.   

       I think an abyss is defined as bieng immeasurable in depth. This bieng said, I like the idea.

       Hmmm. 8'x3'x8'.   

       That's not an abyss. That's a grave!

       abyssinthe, for sure.

       You'd have to bundle it with a monster (link), as the whole quote goes,   

       "Whoever battles with monsters had better see that it does not turn him into a monster. And if you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you."

       I just like the idea of an abyss at the end of my garden. The eyeballs would be a bonus.

       I'd prefer a bus.

       Shirley, a bass?

       Shirley Bassey?
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 03 2007
  

       To where, [lostdog]?
wagster, Mar 03 2007
  

       To infinity and beyond!

       /Whoever battles with monsters had better see that it does not turn him into a monster./   

       Although temporarily turning into a monster could make you better at battling.

       What if you start out as a monster ?

       Better watch out you don't turn into a human.

       Eeeewww, gross.   

       Nietzschean Abbess eyeballs ?

       Sooner or later, it'll shrivel up and drop off you know.
