The Ephemerozoa

This example of contemporary primitive artwork was found by Ranger E.C. late last year in a secluded area near the intersection of Jefferson and Walnut streets in Springfield, Missouri. Upon viewing this photograph I was immediately struck by the appearance of the floating blue/white/pink objects and their uncanny resemblance to the more complex species of Ephemerozoa described by T. Atherton Bramwell over a century ago. If you have never heard of Bramwell and his speculations on the nature of the Ephemerozoa don't be surprised - only now are his theories being reexamined by serious researchers in regards to more recent photographic and video evidence of what are now called "rods" and "orbs". In the weeks to come we will take a closer look at the concept of Ephemerozoa and the work of T. Atherton Bramwell.
