introducing Electricka, Muse of the WorldWide Web©

 

 

 

 

hello, I'm Electricka!

How do you do? Allow me to introduce myself. I'm Electricka, Muse Of the WorldWide Web©. The music you hear is my theme. My signs are Fire and Lighting, my sounds are crackling electricity and thunder. My torches symbolizes light and learning, my thunderbolt awakening. My theme music symbolizes the reawakening of the ancient muses and the birth of the modern-day muses in the age of electricity, electronics, and the Internet—in the Communications Age.

Muse Mountain is my name for the mile-high Greek mountain called Helicon in Greece where my ancient Greek forerunners believed the Muses and Apollo, god of the sun, lived, and where I believe they still live. Helicon was and is a peak or mountain range in Boeotia, in central Greece. See a picture of Helicon, below.*

On Helicon's eastern slope, looking toward the rising sun, the ancients planted a grove and dedicated a temple sacred to my ancient sisters. It's there now, although you may have trouble spying it through he thick, surrounding woods. I have made it another of my symbols.

*NOTE: As pictured, Muse Mountain is actually Mt. Ruapehu volcano in Tongariro National Park, New Zealand.

It may have occurred to you that the ancient muses still exist and play a vital role in modern life; but did you know that modern-day muses exist, as well? At my web site, I have embraced all of them.

In addition, I have anointed specific modern-day muses as my cohorts. They are the muses of film, fine arts, language arts, literature, music, and mythology. I speak for them here and at all the pages of my web site.

I believe that my cohorts are just as alive and vibrant today as the ancient muses were alive and vibrant in the age of classical Greece. I hope that my web site demonstrates this truth.

However, unlike their ancient Greek sisters, we modern muses represent living arts. Although the ancient muses inspire and strengthen us, we stand apart. Some of the arts we represent did not exist in ancient times; and we modern muses view ancient arts from a modern perspective. That is why my cohorts and I have an active part to play at my web site whereas our ancient Greek counterparts do not.

homage to the muses

As you listen to my them once more, visualize my ancient sister muses, reawakened from a slumber of 2300 years, marching down from their ancient mountain home into our modern world. As you listen, visualize me and my cohorts, the ancient muses, and the millions of artists of the past and present and their followers, all marching down Helicon in lockstep, arm-in-arm. The music you hear is not just my music; it's theirs, as well. It symbolizes humanity.

Meet Geek, my Consort

Geek {Ref.}, my consort, is so named for his computer proclivities. Isn't that about what you'd expect from the consort of the Muse of the WorldWide Web©? Ours is the marriage of the computer and the arts.

What Geek looks like, I keep to myself; it's something like this:

If you ask him nicely, maybe one day Geek will turn around so you can get a look at his face.

Do we seem an unlikely pair? In condescending to accept Geek, I have put computers at the service of Art, a worthy enterprise. If this is a sacrifice, it is a meritorious one.
