It looks a bit like that astrofrog in that other thread a few days ago.

I suppose it'll 'spawn' a whole lot of new theories!

Me.

I don't have any academic background or qualification or life.
However, I can absorb all substances into the body from my eyes.

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

STORM - a must watch - caution, some profanity and may cause you to experience reason.
