Interesting search results of “inanimate objects”

LONDON - APRIL 13:  (FILE PHOTO) In this photo...

I was thinking about the changes that will take place in the following weeks relating to the magazine.  Thinking about the new publication and the revised Perspectives guidelines just to name a few.  My pensive state led me to do a Google search for “inanimate objects.”  I wasn’t sure what I’d find but I’m thankful I exercised my intuition!  Apparently, there’s a word that describes the concept of the magazine:

Noun 1. animatism – the attribution of consciousness and personality to natural phenomena such as thunderstorms and earthquakes and to objects such as plants and stones

Not only that but anyone who writes for Perspectives Magazine:

  • is into abiology: the study of inanimate objects
  • is animatistic: [animatism=the assignment to inanimate objects, forces, and plants of personalities and wills, but not souls. — animatistic, adj.]

I also discovered some references to inanimate objects in classic literature:

Had these authors been alive today, I could have run across their submissions in my inbox!


Search that same phrase on another engine.  Did you find anything post-worthy?

NEEDED: Stock photo researchers for creative assignments

Posted by 1websurfer on June 5, 2009

I need RF stock photos–preferrably 300dpi and without people.  After June 15th, I search for images that fit the stories/poems (see samples).  Example: I have a story about two raindrops conversing while falling through the sky.  So, I’m looking for an aerial view of raindrops; not raindrops on a window or glass.  I need all the photos by June 24th.  Visit the website and see the object pov’s coming in July 09.  I would send you a list of the objects and story summaries.

Anyone interested?
