Silicone tendril weaving on hardware cloth

I've been playing around with programming silicone (the sort that comes in those caulking tubes), really enjoying it. It has a certain "pliability" not only to its form, but to its energy. It popped into my head to try and create "sinew" or muscle for my hardware cloth (HC) pieces, which would act as a skeleton for this muscle.

In my head, it felt as though it might feel like a muscle that could be "interdimensionally flexed" when accessed remotely. I liked the sound of that. So, here's a few of my works in progress.

Here's my anti-repticlone piece, made with 1" HC. It has the most work done on it so far. All tendrils are Nov2016 (aka, the anti-repticlone and WW-clone pgm) programmed. To affix them to the unit, I either tie an unsightly knot, or spiral a thin copper wire around the ends.

If I were to describe it, I'd say it feels like a "jet engine bazooka" when I place my hand inside. I love the thing.

I pair it with this HC, the very first anti-repticlone piece I made, with 1/2" HC.

It only has a single tendril. Hard to see, it's wrapped around the center. Plus a little Aether sphere I cured directly onto it.

Right now I have them resting together, one nestled into the other. Think they jive well together, no?

Here's another example for you guys. This is my anti-Etoid set-up. Same deal, a 1" HC, a 1/2" HC, and them paired together. These don't have as much work. I've just started them. Not sure what these tendrils were programmed with. Sorry if they're hard to see.

Feel free to test these suckers out remotely. I'm curious if anyone is able to feel a "flex" if they apply it to a target. You'll have to truly desire to draw a charge from these if you wish to feel it. Intention is key here. Imagine it's a distant third arm you're flexing. Have it coil around your target like a python.

These bigger pieces can handle a LOT of activity. Incredibly high capacities. The only way to truly test these out, get these units pumping, is to give them adequate load. So please, feel free to make use of them. It'll help me figure out how to best upgrade them.

If you're curious to give it a try, just get some 100% silicone caulk (not really caulk, but you'll find it next to the caulk at a hardware store) and a caulking gun. As Loohan once mentioned, pour it out on cardboard, then roll it off. If you don't have an HC to wrap it around, just find something metal, or use uncut HC. It'll still be something potent, I imagine.

Hope you enjoyed a peek at my latest work!

Re: Silicone tendril weaving on hardware cloth

These things are great!  You have quite the imagination there to do this, especially in 3D.  When I flexed then a little while ago, it seemed things expanded out and stayed there but nine hours ago they didn't feel like they flexed any at all.  Maybe as they run, they will get stronger and maybe accept a nudge from time to time to expand them to their max.

Re: Silicone tendril weaving on hardware cloth

OK, as of now i am shunting enuf load to them to try to "fill them up". They feel great.

Re: Silicone tendril weaving on hardware cloth

Awesome, Loohan! Give them as much as you feel they can handle, then, supplies willing, give them double that amount. Flexibility is built into their design. I want to see what happens when it's stretched "beyond capacity."

I put my hand next to them an hour ago. They're certainly buzzing. I could feel it.

Re: Silicone tendril weaving on hardware cloth

I've been real busy with this stuff lately.

The anti-repticlone unit has gotten more work, but today I'll focus on my anti-etoid units.

This unit initially had some mysterious "standard program" imprinted upon the silicone (meaning it's some program we already have, but we can't tell which one it is), but recently I've been wrapping it in Iron Embalmment tendrils. It seemed to appreciate these additions. There's about 5 to 7 I.E. tendrils added to this unit. Some of these are wrapped around the iron spokes. Some are wrapped around other tendrils, some of which are already wrapped around other tendrils. I like the multiple layering of silicone. It's a little like adding layers of different programmed resin to a device.

I've also began taping this unit, wherever it felt right. So far I've used "cold weather" grade 181b tape, which is more aluminum-like than standard 181b tape, as well as small amounts of copper tape. These have helped this unit become much more "available" in my Channel Program pieces. Better reception, or whatever.

It's not all that pretty. Thin copper wire holds the ends of the tendrils in place, as it did before, but I've since misplaced it. So I use electric tape instead, which is a little more unsightly.

What I've been doing recently is sticking both my left and right hands inside the unit, as I'm sitting or laying down, and leaving them there a while. Doing this creates little "pops" in my head, audible ones, which I'm not really sure how to define. Are they etoid spells? Implants? No idea. But I notice a new "flexibility" in my scalp after pursuing these pops for the last month or so. Seems to be beneficial. I feel like my eyebrows and scalp have a new mobility. Less rigid.

This device isn't the only way I can produce these cranial "pops"; most any energy work where I bring my hands over my head or face will bring this about. But I do notice this device brings these "pops" on strong.

Here's a view of the two semi-circles I place my hands in. Perhaps you could try sticking your "astral" hands into the unit remotely? It's a pretty long piece; a whole arm could fit.

Here's a better view of the "stitching" the tendrils undergo. This angle seems to display the power of the unit best. Gives me a teensy headache to look at it, oddly enough. Must be a busy unit.



bYssKnR.jpg



And lastly, here's how I'm storing this unit at the moment: with the initial anti-etoid unit, which uses a smaller, 1/2 inch HC. I just place this piece on top. This smaller HC has one Iron Embalmment tendril added to it, with three or four of the initial "standard program" tendrils.

I don't feel much "flexing" like I was feeling initially. Guess it's becoming more solidified, crystalline.

Rocks, man. Really good.

Yes, the Etoids are very cunning and have loads of spells on us to suppress us in various ways while THEY can pursue developing their "human" potential.
I can't fathom the magic, have trouble perceiving it, but that's largely what i've been focusing on in recent months.
I do have the impression that your device strips away a lot of their garbage.

Re: Silicone tendril weaving on hardware cloth

There's something I've been meaning to add for some weeks. I have no good excuse for the delay. So I'll dive right in.

In the beginning, it was quite easy to roll these silicone tendrils off the cardboard surface. For whatever reason, this became more difficult later on. If it did come off, it would likely break in places.

Instead, I use wire cutters. A small pair, that's easy to maneuver, and is flat on one side. If you google wire cutters, the first images that pop up are essentially what I use. I start cutting from one end of the tendril, taking care to keep it as flat against the cardboard as I can. Once the end is free, I take hold of it and lift it as I continue cutting.

This is a FAR EASIER way to get it off the cardboard in one piece. Granted, you are left with a tendril that's slightly rougher looking than if you had rolled it off, but it still works perfectly for this application.

If anyone has any difficulty performing these methods, do let me know. I've come up with a couple tricks to make all this easier and more enjoyable to create.

Re: Silicone tendril weaving on hardware cloth

Oh, while I'm here, here's the setup I have going this particular evening. Just two of my anti-etoid HCs on my two cloudbusters. Still have some more taping to do on them. I'm studying the effects of their interaction. It does strengthen the HCs a little, but I feel like something's missing. It should feel stronger, but it doesn't. So, we'll see where this goes.

EDIT: Not a huge detail, but both these CBs also have Luke Coils within them. They're plugged into each other, with my cellphone drawing power through them via a charger. All the more reason they should feel stronger than they do, in my eyes.

I mean, they're plenty strong if you stick your hand inside the HCs --- very strong --- but I expected to feel it while sitting a few feet away from them. Guess I'm just expecting too much from them.

Re: Silicone tendril weaving on hardware cloth

There we go! Now that feels better. Gives more of that "horizontal" energy flow I was seeking.


u00Edqf.jpg



Energy now strongly barrels out of this side, in particular. The HC on top spirals this energy in two different ways, within these two spiraled "chambers."



OooiA9q.jpg



I can't say if they're opposite directions or not; I can only tell that they're very different from each other.

This barreling of energy continues outside of the HC, in the direction it is pointing.

It seems to project outwards a good couple feet. I can stick a hand in front of it, within this range, and feel a pleasant "something" occurring. It's both intricate and murky at the same time. Beyond my immediate perception.

At the moment I'm sitting in front of it, with the curiosity of whether or not it will have a palpable effect on me. Couldn't hurt to try. I'll add some tape, and further cut and specialize this other, third HC (also anti-etoid); see if I can't add it into the mix. Haven't posted a picture of it yet. If I do, I'll link to it within this post, in a future edit.

I have all night to take this as far as it will go. Six hours. Let's see what can be found out.

Re: Silicone tendril weaving on hardware cloth

Here's what I ended up with. First off, the third etoid HC. It's a little hard to see. Just imagine it's a very much elongated V. Here's my hand for reference of size.

After some taping and repositioning, I added this third HC by wrapping it around the white CB. Here's how it ended up looking.

I'll leave this config overnight to stew.

Why use cardboard unless you're in a big hurry to get it dry? As i have posted in OTB 48, wax paper is much easier, if slower. But then still it helps a lot for the paper to be on a coldish surface; then it doesn't seem to stick as much. Often it will come right off effortlessly.
It can stick a lot if done on a warm surface.
Also different brands of silicone may perform differently.

Merely sticking a Luke coil or anything else into a device will not make it better. It has to be the right something in the right place.

Re: Silicone tendril weaving on hardware cloth

Hey man, I took three or four pics trying to get it as un-handsign-y as possible. Trickier than it looks when the HC is all spiraled and wiggling.

Either that or my hand knows something I don't. Maybe it's got MPD.
