Robot Comic #22

Money falls out of us, money goes back into us, a muffin comes out, a toothy green menace eats the muffin... it's a cycle as old as history, isn't it? A metaphor for the human condition.

Do you know what is another key ingredient of the human condition? Watching the sunset on a cliff, with your friends (and a ghost):

Sweet, sweet newspaper format!

Gosh I thought maybe this was the robot-version of ... er... is it in Acts? where the Apostles are staring up into the skies...

(hee hee)

There's something fitting about the exposed utilities beneath the cliff. Of course there are some smarmy people who detest all technology (especially hilarious when they use the INTERNET to proclaim their view!) But to someone like me (and any real Chestertonian) who can see further into things, ALL scenes, no matter how "natural" or "untouched by 'human' hands" blares out their underlying supports.

It is, in the end, attested to by the Creed: Per quem omnia facta sunt = "Through Him all things were made." And hence ALL are good, all are made by reason, all are ordered... creation is the supreme height of engineering.

"And God looked at everything He had made, and found it VERY good."

So too our friends the robots, the ghost and bat, the turnip and the chick... etc...

I really like this one.. thanks Ben!

Awesome, Shaun, I hope you continue to visit! (I'll try to hold up my end by posting more comics).
