    If you want to learn more about this story, definitely check out Sharon Ruston’s online article, “The Science of Life and Death in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein,” and Kathryn Harkup’s book, “Making the Monster.” Their amazing research helped inform a lot of this piece, and I am very grateful that they also took the time to Skype with me about this story. Stay spooky. -Coleman

    The only reason ppl think it's a silly monster tale never read the book.......the movie versions are ridiculous except the one with Deniro. It's a masterpiece that is frightening today.........I find it amazing it was written by basically a kid.

      So it's a lot closer to black mirror rather than Phineas and Furb,

        Speaking of Frankenstein, I remember in the early 2000's reading a story about a doctor (can't remember his name), that worked at Metro Health Hospital that had put a human head on a different human body. His co-workers gave him the name Frankenstein.

            That’s because our world is controlled by black magic occultist... and one of the forms of magic they use is “revelation of the method” it’s taking images and imprinting them into the mind(through story telling) and then the mind projects that image as reality, end result it comes into manifestation... its called SPELL BOOKS for a reason... they hide and speak a completely different language and use cryptic meaning, images with hidden entities, symbols, all to trick the rest of us to play a role in there world of death, they use the idea of ‘hiding in plain sight’ they will speak through a SENTENCE or flashes of images in a video sequence(ANIMATION) really quickly to invoke and imprint into the unconscious mind... don’t believe me? I’ll give you just ONE example in this video go to clip 2:23... pause the video... and state into the upper left corner of the man in red dropping bird food into the cage and stare into the TWO flakes of bird food... WHAT do you see? I’m an artist so I know how to interpret light, shadow, color, shape, dimension, angle, perspective, etc...

                    I have a fear of burying things alive. It`s why whenever an animal dies, I don`t feel right just burying it.

                                It’s funny how a lot of people think that Frankenstein is the created ‘person’ made by Frankenstein in the book.

                                              The work of Galvani and Volta also led to the development of the electrical battery, so crucial to modern life. Before then, electricity was only known in the form of "static" electricity. The early "wet cell" batteries were literally an attempt to recreate the body's electrical production in the lab.
