    Frame 8: And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy sisters's eye, but considerest not the chair leg that is in thine own eye? Open question whether it's in the Ipsoid^3's eye or just passing through.

    The furniture and building materials in this page. Also the androgyny/nonconformity of gender in the universe of artDicks. Also the title of this page. :D Really great.

    Something about the door in the Ipsoid^3's head is like _Adventures in the Skin Trade_ by Dylan Thomas. That part goes like this:

    excerpt from Chs. 1 & 2 of
    Adventures in the Skin Trade, by Dylan Thomas

    -----
    "This is 23. See? There's the sign, 23."

    Mr. Allingham opened the front door with a key.
    "Second floor, first on the right."

    He gave three knocks. "Mr. Allingham," he said, and
    they walked in.

    The room was full of furniture.

    II. PLENTY OF FURNITURE

    Every inch of the room was covered with furniture.
    Chairs stood on couches that lay on tables; mirrors
    nearly the height of the door were propped, back to
    back, against the walls, reflecting and making endless
    the hills of desks and chairs with their legs in the
    air, sideboards, dressing tables, chests-of-drawers,
    more mirrors, empty bookcases, washbasins, clothes
    cupboards. [...]

    -----

    A bizarre reality constructed from normalness. The same sort of imaginativity in Thomas is here in this work.

    Open answer = the title

    Re: gender -- later on (in pages 50+) there are even some male human characters planned (this will be quite a deviation from the previous 200+ pages).

    And thanks for the quote! To paraphrase someone else, "I'm so unhip, when I hear Thomas I think they're talkin' 'bout Thomas th' Rabbit, whoever that is..."

    LOL, 200+ pages, oh my gosh!


    "I'm so unhip, when I hear Thomas I think they're talkin' 'bout Thomas th' Rabbit, whoever that is..."

    "200+ pages"

    Yup, since there's 191 pages on TransBunny, the whole thing had 200 by ArtDicks page 9 :) I had mis-remembered it as 181 on TransBunny so I thought it wasn't until now, page 19! Granted, the first 20-some pages are just one-off gag-pages, but anyways...

    & yeah, the unwitting set-up for the unhip quote was perfect!
