It's code people![edit]

It's simply code for, "These new(er) psychotropic medications they've put me on are much better than the zombiefying ones me and Dad and Mom and Grandma used to be on. I swear the DXM has nothing to do with all this wisdom I'm having these days, I just like it.

Generation[edit]

In my AI class, we spent a while working with N-Gram models for natural language text parsing.

If you use an N-Gram model to generate text, the result reads very much like the Time Cube page. In fact, everything about the text smacks of a natural language generation app that a student might code.

That sounds very interesting and is no doubt a viable explanation for the time cube phenomenom but I must admit to having not the faintest clue as to what you are saying .(identity hidden to prevent ignorance from being identified)

Steganography or Dada Engine?[edit]

Is anyone aware of any steganalysis of the Timecube site? With all those fonts and colors and HTML tag soup, I can't escape the suspicion that Timecube is just the carrier, and there are in fact hidden (possibly even coherent) messages somehow encoded in it.

On the other hand, I also get the distinct impression that all Timecube content is generated by a dada engine. It would be fun to load up a dada engine with some Timecube terms ("EDUCATED STUPID", "ONEist", "queer", etc) and see if it makes any more sense than the actual Timecube page.— Unsigned, by: 66.151.103.8 / talk / contribs

TimeCube devotee remembered[edit]

This article needs some reference to Cubehead (Richard Janczarski), the one and only disciple of Gene Ray, who made a much better effort to make sense of the materials than anyone else, but alas, committed suicide after Ray cruelly rejected him: http://www.graveyardofthegods.com/forum/viewforum.php http://www.cubicao.com/ http://www.graveyardofthegods.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=7761

Broken Links[edit]

The links to Gene Ray's former websites now redirect to untrustworthy / irrelevant websites and should be removed. — Unsigned, by: 4.7.61.70 / talk / contribs
