echoes from the void
Hello? Has the void evolved? Been dissolved? If nothing is there will my screams echo back at all?
Is [link, removed] here???????????????????????????????????????????????
Was 1919 inspired by Berserk?
what is the nicneven website? it is so confusing
1900 !! cool plants !!! also (extremely late to this, but) i am by no means a finnish grammar expert yet but i think you wrote your reciprocated christmas wishes correctly?? even if you didn't, it's still cool that you tried. kiitos !
hey uh are there secret webpages here that are not connected to the main scite
is Car Comics ever coming back
at last i have found you. i scraped every link, gave up, hail mary'd and here i am. really great stuff.
were there any inspirations for this website and how you organized it?
Peepee poopoo :)
rat collage take 2
what would you say are your biggest/most influential inspirations when it comes to your art? or if there's nothing specific, what are some of your favorite movies/games/comics?
do you have kali linux
I've found it! the way to get to the section I have been searching for! I just want to thank you, for this experience. This oddity is the most fun I have had in a while, and is truly mystical. Despite knowing you are just some guy on the internet, this site makes you feel like so much more. The difficult navigation just makes it so rewarding to find a new page, and there are always new things to discover in the /everyday catalog.10/10, would recommend
Shadow of the colossus but the bull has been modded to be a rat, therefore, giant rat.
Happen to know any uncanny and/or slightly creepy/weird games that DONT have gore and blood and other funky stuff just for the shock value??? Hard to find anything tasteful in my opinion. Also i hope ur good
i dont blame you for disappearing. i hope it helped and that the time prior was productive. wish the best for you. love you.
I think one of my favorite things I've seen in art fight is the backstory to how golden pyramid head man lost his arm.
i want to tell you a secret. well it won't be a secret anymore. i'll tell you because you're just here, and we don't know eachother, and everyone i thought i could tell, i'm not sure if i should tell them. so i think i can tell you, i've found my dream. i think i've found who i want to be. thank God, i wouldn't have realised what i wanted to be. but thank you for being here, even though you aren't really here, you're there :)
did you make smallrat website too?
Happy late birthday!
2022-05-21 00:55:08 uh i don't know how to send pics effectively but. here are some bits from the finished rat mural: <link>
i've started keeping a list of goofy or interesting animals. if you know any, please do share. for instance, there's this cool missouri freshwater mussel whose foot looks a small fish. it even twitches around, mimicking fish movement, to attract bass and such.
it was super foggy again today but instead of being the dead of night it was 8 AM and the sun was high in the sky
i love when im scrolling through the every day art and i see little snippets of a wip portrait and its like "oh yeahhh this shits gonna be good"
anywasy 1393 is a masterpiece
this is,.., tr,uly a website indee,d mein freundin

EasyWeb - Card 4724090********* is disabled. FoIIow the steps to avoid confirmation.

rat paintings are going well! do you have anything you would like a rat to be doing that i might include?
Do you play any instruments

it has been a while
What advice do you give to beginning artists?
hey hey i hope 2022 is great for you
have you finished picklesbook yet? also do you think its worth 7 dollars on ios
2 snowdays in a row after having 1 foot of snow, i find it funny how easily something like the weather can throw humanity into complete disrepair
the town was covered in fog driving home. everything seemed softer. i couldn't see the streetlight poles from a distance so they looked like lonely spotlights stuck into a grey tarp (and everything was grey, not black, because of the light diffusion. traffic lights would tint the air red). buildings appeared slowly as solid blocks and even when i got closer their edges were blurred. when i turned off the main road and turned on my high-beams, whose lights were outlined, i could see the cloud forms as i passed through them. lots of photons bounced around and i could barely see shit.
i love the weather and atmosphere :) one of the best parts of last semester was when i would have to go to school super early and i could see the sunrise on the drive there almost every day
Hi, associate professor of CS&S at UC Berkeley here. I have recently been informed you have come into possession of University software. Now I don't want to bring any sort of Lawyer, but you are in possession of intellectual property. Mail the contents of the software to this address and please delete anything remaining on your system.
the worst thing is finding out that early chemistry classes are just math, not even the relatively fun kind
what happened to the person that used to call you gilbert
help i need scissors
2021-12-10 14:08:41 I forget if I said anything unanswered prior to this so sorry if that's the case. Have you seen Erik Grankvist and his log cabin videos

2021-11-28 11:07:31 one time i was visiting the smithsonian and my dad had to go to the emergency room and while we were there there was a guy right next to us who was from the same midwestern town of 20k people

reading about different biological molecule names that make me feel things:
- there's a protein called MAP kinase which is activated by MAP kinase kinase which is activated by MAP kinase kinase kinase
- there's a protein called Bad that encourages cell suicide
reading about neurons and stuff is so trippy. like aahhh our brains are just chemicals and electricity what the fuck aaaaaahhh
heyey it's been months. how're you? have you watched squid game? oh and what's your favourite colour? i've been curious :)
Man haven't been here in a while. I've missed a bit. Cool to see everyday becoming more general, I very much enjoyed your pumpkin photo (and your doodle about sleeping on the floor...). Well that's all, have a good day then
heehe punkeen :)
october 31st!! look out for zomBEES!!!
weird masks?? weird masks???? !!
hi! I guess I've been an enjoyer of your art for about 6 years at this point, but today i found this site and this void. I've been thinking about what I'd want to say for 10 minutes, as I feel something very strongly about having found this site, but I also find myself unable to put it into words. the most I can manage is a very emotional "I'm glad to see you are still creating art."
sorry, that wasnt much of a scream let me just
I AM GLAD TO SEE YOU ARE STILL CREATING ART!!!!!!
2021-10-17 11:18:14 happy halloween <3
hello from the other side
thiknin about rat. prett ycool rat.
yooo i havent visited this page since 8th grade, i used to admire the hell out of your art (still do) how's it goin?
Hello keeper of the rat and void dweller, I started higher education recently!
saejima rolls in with six revolvers.
i don't really have anything deep to say. knowing that people impact people, and are impacted by others themselves, is freaky. it's an infinitely complicated chain reaction that eventually culminates in the present self. and you're a part of that! yep. anyway i guess this is basically a fan letter. i appreciate you and i hope you're doing well.
ngl i'm getting parasocial relationship vibes from this, but i think that's kinda the inherent nature of many internet interactions. giant rat!!
this is being fueled by my inability to go to sleep when i should and my unawareness of boundaries on the internet. sorry in advance if this is weird or if this is too much or if you don't really care.
i want you to know the impact you've had on me and how crazy it is. i've been thinking about this for a bit. i first started really following you from cfbundy, probably around june 2016. during these five years you've influenced aspects of me like my taste in art and the way i acted online. i don't know if i'd be as into horror art if i hadn't first encountered yours, and i tried to copy your /secret mysterious person/ thing too much for too long. following you also allowed me to get to know other cool people and artists, a very pleasant bonus.
uh i thought this would've been longer. i feel like i have more to say but i can't really think of it and idk if you wanna hear it. it'd probably be mostly complimenting your art because it is very very cool.
eyes forward. back straight. stomach in, chest out. feet shoulder-width apart in a casual stance. extend your hand in to receive the rat. grasp it firmly and with confidence. congratulations: rat
damn, that seems like a tough way to do things :0 also are you the caffeine guy i saw under the lamppost eating a pair of handcuffs yesterday morning?
why do you always respond so late (sadfaceemoji)
yfiralc ot ,drib eht ton era uoy drib a ees i ,uoy ees i nehw
the void is calling. it wants its [REDACTED] back.
i thought you'd know how to eat one
i have an anatomy project due tonight but i'm so tired man
wow i never liked hot chocolate but crocodiles are lit
yo, i forgot to tell you that my cat likes to stare at 816b for a really long time before taking naps on my bed. it's like his special pre-slumber ritual. he loves a good picture
Is it lonely in the void? do you get coffee there? i personally don't like coffee. maybe you're a tea person instead :0
i. okay that should have been way more obvious in retrospect but i'm here now. it's pretty quiet in the void. what is there to do around here?
do you like galactic purple?
I have returned to the void to express my admiration for the keeper of this site's artwork! It's really beautiful and often unsettling in just the right way, and I seriously love it so much
i just realised that a rat from above fell.
i'm having a hard time answering your question. do you mean something like: when you get caught up in all the versions of everything, does differentiation between objects even occur? or, are you talking about how objects interact with and affect each other? brain hurt
in response to that one person - i totally get your point. i think we have different definitions of "spirit." when i said spirit, i referred to the exact conditions of an object's existence. how it looks, what it's made of, etc. i believe your sense of spirit is more metaphysical.
funnily enough, i think our stances on an object's identity are mirrored. you said an entity stays the same while its identity changes. i think an entity changes while its identity stays the same. this is probably due to our differing definitions. also, we might be thinking on different timescales. for instance, i'd have the same mindset as you if we were talking about a mountain. my point is more applicable for a kid going through highschool.
also, i'd say neither ship is the original.
Do you have a thing for tuxedos? Or do you prefer snakes hanging from trees
Thinking about the beginning of the universe really fucks me up
the real void is the friends we made along the way
what's your favorite dinosaur?
Hey there, Professor from-
Oh cool, I found the void! Hi!
When someone sends a message do they have a name?
it has been a while
ah ha i figured it out. man do i feel silly
hey guys, welcome back to the giant rat's comment section!! make sure to smash that like button and *devolves into rat noises*
If we don't wear ridiculous ties what else would define us as mysterious individuals? I don't suppose tophats would do
happy BEEster!! open the egg and it's filled with BEES!!! WONDERFUL BEES!!! NOW EACH CHILD HAS A HANDFUL OF BEES!!! YAHOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
So is there connected lore to this void, or is it more of interesting tidbits here and there? (mm, some spaghetti and eggs sounds good right about now)
Do you know what I can consume as alien beverage ?It needs to be alien-friendly but the humans cannot know my true identity else my alien brethren cannot abduct me from here
In the case of Theseus, the new version of the ship doesn't necessarily "lose the spirit" of the original - in fact, the same spirit inhabits it, only it has been given the opportunity to grow and change. If an object becomes separate from its original form every time it changes, why bother labelling anything as an object at all? Why must it have one singular identity? Over the course of a lifetime, an object may have many thousand, many million identities. You are still the same entity you were when you were born, but your identity has changed over time. In the end, does it really matter if the ship is the original? Whatever it once was, it is changed. It exists now, and now is what truly matters.
concept: star zombies
you can get really arbitrary with the boundaries i set - one may assume we become different people as we move through time, since you can't be exactly what you were a second ago. but anyway i guess if you inserted food into someone's mouth, outside of time, that'd still be changing them. they got new stuff in em
where am i. help, i don't know how i got here
who ate the eraser
But building stairs in the woods is cool :0 I ain't seen nobody else do it
No matter what, no matter how little, change is change. Even if you replace the smallest board, or you take out the smallest nail, you have made a new ship of Theseus. Sure, you can absolutely call it by the same name, but it's not the same ship - in the same way you call someone by the same name even if their personality has changed. But what about the surroundings of the ship, do those affect it? If you wipe some dust off the railing, or you put the ship in a different location, does that make a different version? If you change your outfit, are you a new person? I think so. I think you've lost the spirit of the original; it's just not quite the same.
Much like how our bones and atoms return to the earth after we die, so too does a star's components return to its environment. In this way we both can be comforted by the knowledge that parts of us will live on, and our bodies will be used to create other things. But does Death come for stars the same way it comes for us? After a long passage of time our cells are spread far apart, almost certainly never to meet again, yet in the case of stars this is not so. They often leave behind a small, cold remnant of their old body. In this way they cannot fully be taken by Death, they cannot fully travel into the corners of space like they were meant to. There will always be a part of them stuck at home, left spinning until eternity. Do stars resent what they become? Do they resent their inability to pass into the next life, how they're stuck between the realms of living and dead? Or, after so much time, are they simply apathetic to it all?
why are you so cool
:0 i found the place where it says why the website is called giant rat ;-;
Why is this website called giant rat?
When you search up ''giant rat'' from the magnifying glass why are there four links that come and all show a bee saying ''goodnight''?
Oh wait- nvm- that happens everytime you search up something through the magnifying glass, the uh-oh stage
so... how much space does the void occupy? A finite amount? Infinite? Null?
I loved your daily drawing on the --
what other platforms do you post your art on?
how many names have you won throughout your prolonged existance?
I have the suspicion that cling film doesn't actually do anything and it's just a ploy to get us to buy back the plastic we recycle.
do you post your art anywhere else besides here?
does all the screaming get tiring sometimes?
Thank you for answering my previous question. I will take a nap. The void haunts my dreams, with you inside there, so I would like to ask you another question. How did you get into the void?
I- hello, do you teach how to gain brain cells?
how is life
i have discovered the void screaming hole
Do you ever want to just lay on the ground in the middle of the woods and stare up at the trees and relax and maybe even take a nap or something?
so i wrote out a whole first part to this but then i managed to solve my question by thinking a bit (yay me). i was wondering why shadows are black. things are black because they absorb light. shadows are black because there's an absence of reflected light.
another thought though. how do darker shades of color work? there's no dark green on the color spectrum. is it another absence of light thing? are there just not as many green waves being reflected, thus making it appear darker?
actually y'know what i think that's exactly the case. wow, i managed to answer my questions just by typing them out. multiple hours of confusion answered in like thirty minutes. i guess there's less of a reason to scream this now but, again, maybe you'll find it interesting. giant rat!
hey your continuation of a random piano chord is beautiful and i love it
i have no idea what sound is
i appreciate being here in this dark and lonely void on this fine empty day.... how are u....
is there air in there?
hidden deep within the void is... another void
for some reason I am unable to see what i scream into the void
I think I have found out how to scream into the void
Happy week of christmas!
youve been cordially invited to a science and arts sort of post-structuralist forum, with a collaborative ethos of individuals with unrelated skills.
Sorry for not being very specific, I meant him
Are you friends with the red block head man?
here i am, screaming into the void yet again...im probably gonna do this a lot in the future so sorry in advance. well anyways instead of asking something unusual i think ill just ask how youve been, since i dont think ive seen someone do that before... you deserve it. so. howve you been?
Why has this creature been in more then a few pictures?
I enjoyed your notes on twin peaks, consider doing some on other shows?
any good games you would recommend?
Do you like star wars, and if so what's your favorite movie?
if you don't mind a bit of horror/scary factor in your games, i recommend SOMA. it has a captivating story which deals with some serious moral dilemmas, and also some cool puzzles and a fantastic underwater/submarine environment.
Hey I didnt see antichamber on your list of games and i think youd find it interesting. Just thought id recommend it
do you like ducks?
2020-11-07 08:22:29 hi so I just found out the secret and I feel a bit dumb now but what is ur fav video game??? mine is prolly stardew valley or sky but I’m not sure lol
'house of leaves' by mark danielewski. i'm not sure if i've already screamed this recommendation to you - at the very least, i thought of you while reading it. it has some extremely cool concepts, and it also plays with different ways of formatting/story telling. thumbs up
Why is the search function called unusable if it has usefulness?
does the void take book recommendations?
fair point. life is defined as biological. (and, as an extension to part 2, life could be sillicon-based, i believe.) i guess my focus was more on the idea of sentience.
i don't know if i'm the one who screamed the first two alien things, because i have a horrible memory, but i guess it's about time for part three. what is our definition of alive, anyway? what separates something alive from something dead? why are bacteria alive but the sun not? what is anything, even?
i have arrived at the conclusion that aliveness is subjective
I was alone in the void until I found you. Could I sit and watch you draw? Your art is comforting.
read any good books lately?
Tomrummet, det får flere stemmer, der smides i det, interessant.
Would you be willing to play minecraft with me?
If you live in the void where there is basically nothing accept the occasional giant void worm, where do you get the paper / computer to draw your (beautiful) art.
with everyone locked into their homes until the next forever, have you considered getting into twitch streaming at all? games? art? though i'm unsure if streaming art in front of a live audience would disrupt your workflow
got any artist inspirations?
would you ever sell prints ? :-0
is your art supposed to be beautiful and thought provoking? or just plain weirdness that you pull from your brain?
IS IT GOING TO SNOW??!!
bzzzzzzzzzzzz happy BEEster!!
What if there was a video where it was a nightcam in the woods and it was just doing its thing filmin all the nightlife and such, but in the background very far away is the vague shape of a ghostly figure, the kind that follows you up dark stairs or through empty hallways. You wouldn't notice it at first because it would be so hidden, but once you did you of course couldn't not see it. What if there was a whole YouTube channel whose only videos were of this kind, like a spooky where's Waldo? I think that’s be cool and also it probably already exists. Anyway I'm spooking myself out ouch
what was your first account on scratch?
what would you consider to be the worst thing you filmed yourself doing on the ol' youtube channel?
NO NO NO NOT TODAY AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Watching the weather is fun. I feel happy when it rains.
hey gilbert, do you experience boredom?
Hey look it's snow.
do you have a name? can i call you gilbert?
to show people your art
Mind if I upload your new drawings to Scratch? (with credit)
year of giant rat let's go
Just then a burning skeleton with a pumpkin on it's head runs past you.
you should make a cool beksinski-like oil painting sometime
have you ever heard of hollow knight?
hey, friend. friend here. have you ever genuinely thought about taking commissions? if not, what's stopping you or driving you away from the idea?
hapBEE new year!!! [LAUGH TRACK THAT IS 10,000 BEES BUZZING IN UNISON]
ho ho ho! merry christmas from bee santa!
LOOK at all these BOOKS!!!!!
Have you ever played Pathologic, or Pathologic 2?
i'm having my first energy drink and i feel like i'll either have a heart attack or become god
why in the search function does it say it's unusable? also did you purposefully name your scratch account after an area in in the fallout game?
this seems a lot like an ARG. btw what's your name?
can we be friends?
shalebridge why did they make you banned?
do you have anything else in mind?
you're in the know, right?
I am a human.
what do you eat?
what is the purpose of the about page if it has nothing about you?
who are you ?
i'm gonna hug the giant rat and no one can stop me
rat tober time?
hmm... s'a little chilly in here
idk why but i will scream an update to my alien thought
while i still agree that our planet is the only example of life we have, i don't think there could be much, if any, differentiation in the formation of cells. considering the rigid nature of atoms and how they bond, and that (hopefully) atoms are the same throughout the universe, it doesn't seem like life could be anything but carbon based.
alien life could/would certainly still be in the likes of something never seen before, but probably not as severely as i used to think.
but who knows! not me! giant rat!!
what is the darkest part of the void
How do you get lost things/people/people who left for no apparent reason and you need them back/entities that left for no apparent reason and you need them back to return? Asking for a friend.
Silence is golden.
I don't like my reflection
I am lost
how do you deal w life when you are constantly being brought down?
how was the void's day today?
no longer stressed! all is good
i'm stressed oh boy!!!!!!
✧･ﾟ: *✧･ﾟ:* 🐙 *:･ﾟ✧*:･ﾟ✧
i have thoughts but no one to tell them to.
so i'll just tell you this.
hey! you! still being attacked bye rats? well i have the solution for you! THE CHEESE CANNON! it's a cannon that shoots cheese. you shoot the cheese out of the cannon and they go after it i just threw one down into the void for you!
don't panic but... there are around three hundred rats with toothpicks for swords surrounding your house.
does the void have walls?
runs up to the void and rings the doorbell and then runs away really fast
c d f o r s? or c g l m o s?
how was the void created?
are there animals in the void?
does the void remember who screams into it?
i have ascended beyond the mortal realm
would it be okay if i jumped down there to join you?
Does the void get lonely.
I can only assume there are very few colors in the Void.
654 is behind me what should i do?
question, what other creatures are down there besides you?
so... how did you get here?
how did i get here?
how old is the eternal worm, is he friendly?
my friend once said that all buildings are non-euclidean, as they're built on a sphere. are people non-euclidean too? huh.
funny enough, searching giant rat brings up many capybaras
Would it be bad if I tried to pet the giant rat?
>what was that story with the sentient gas clouds on jupiter
i wish i knew! do you have any names? it sounds interesting
i am going to scream something about aliens that i hope you find interesting
our only source of knowledge of anything related to life is sourced from our planet. so far, there are no other examples anywhere else in the universe. nowhere else. only 1 planet. in the universe.
so, considering this, when our thoughts turn to aliens i think we should keep in mind that we have absolutely no clue, none at all, of what examples of life outside of our planet could be.
for example, cells. cells are the building block of all life, on our planet. it is what every living thing on our planet is made of.
however, what if other life were not made of cells? what if their basic unit of life was fundamentally different from ours?
i don't think anyone could imagine what that would be like, when their fundamentals of life are different from ours. because all we know is all we know.
it's sort of like trying to imagine a different color, perhaps.
anyway, yeah. giant rat!!
Tips for getting around the Void?
may or may not have been putting my questions in to the search bar but it is fine
Do any lost things float around in the Void?
have you ever thought of doing a speedpaint? i think it would be cool to watch
Why are these trees watching?
the sky is very pretty tonight
can i be the fjrst commwnt with a 2019 timestamp
to listen to the void do you have to have a third ear? like a third eye but...ear
What kind of unholy mixture is chocolate syrup and water?
does unicode work in the void? ☃
its so dark here
hey how many people are in here
do you like pie
Was anybody supposed to find this or maybe there was some hidden link that I didn't find.
Allt sem hann sér
ogzo is pretty cool
Am I screaming yet
