Apophanous Bio


“He sees pieces of wood on the ground and sees them as if they were Greek letters, which he interprets as the abbreviation of a man’s name, and he feels that now he knows that this man is the one who is chasing him. See pieces of wood in the bottom of a basket and make sure they form a pentagram. ” -Occult Diary by August Strindberg
