Footnotes:

[1] Andean condor

[2] Apparently, female.

[3] In Andean mythology, the Andean condor was associated with the sun deity, and was believed to be the ruler of the upper world.

[4] Amanita muscaria was widely used as an entheogen by many of the indigenous peoples of Siberia. Its use was known among almost all of the Uralic-speaking peoples of western Siberia and the Paleosiberian-speaking peoples of the Russian Far East.

[5] The spindle is closely associated with many goddesses, including the Germanic Holda, Norse Frigg and Freya, Egyptian Isis, Greek Artemis and Athena.
It is often connected with fate, as the Greek Fates and the Norse Norns work with yarns that represent lives.

[6] Buddha achieved enlightenment under the bodhi tree, a large and old sacred fig tree (Ficus religiosa, or Pipal).

[7]“There are things you can’t fight, acts of God. You see a hurricane coming, you have to get out of the way.
But when you’re in a Jaeger, suddenly, you can fight the hurricane. You can win.”
– Raleigh Becket, Pacific Rim

[8] Glass is an ancient material, one of the most ancient known and used by man. The first glass used was natural obsidian, volcanic glass, used to make arrowheads, knives, jewelry, etc. Glass objects created of man made glass are reported to have been found as early from as 4,500 BC in Mesopotamia and 3,000 BC in ancient Egypt. (….) Glass is a melding of the traditional four elements, because through fire and air the silica earth element is made molten and transmuted into a liquid only to return to its earthly state as an apparent solid. (…) Metaphysically, glass represents and carries the energies of transformation, merging of elements, rebirth, focus and communication.

[9] Extensive usage in ceremonies all over the world

Задача:

Рассчитать толщину стен моего бункера, определить глубину и место его залегания,
если известно, что мне знаком только 2ой трек на первом диске.

i saw her

А она оказывается ЖИВАЯ!
Она есть на самом деле, она сидела передо мной в метро. На расстоянии вытянутой руки. Ожившая и сошедшая с картины.
Без рамы. Чудо. Настоящее чудо, которое никто и не заметил.

Рубенс - Портрет камеристки

Впрочем, это все in my head и just my imagination.
