    I'm doing a little cleaning today and in flipping through a Jan. '91 issue of Omni Magazine to see if its worth keeping, I spot a piece on the computer art done by Clifford Pickover, and can't help but notice that the picture called "I Have Dreams at Night" looks an awful lot like the FSM.

    Though titling it "I Have Dreams at Night" turns the otherwise cute pic onto something really, really unsettling.

    The artist is a bit an odd-duck who has written books on mathematics and drug culture, as well as coined the term "vampire number" to describe certain numbers.

    At least they didn't envision a racist blond, blue eyed flying spaghetti monster like you used to see in all the religious books and movies.

    On the other hand, he has red eyes, so maybe they were foreseeing the advent of medical marijuana.
