i been trying to figure this one out. i have written triples and quads but is a quintuple possible?

here's an example off the top of the head...
single- "i strike like lightening." (i know...a simile but bear with me)
double- "i enlighten the dimwitted when i strike like lightening"
triple-"i brainstorm and enlighten the dimwitted when i strike like lightening"
quad- "they call me thor, i brainstorm and enlighten the dimwitted when i strike like lightening"


or can you keep unfolding the idea into infinity?

in theory you could unfold this infinitely, but withh the limitations of language it would be a challenge

you could also mix other combinations within that could multiply(or add??) the metaphor

"i'm the electromagnetic thor in this sphere, i brainstorm and positively enlighten the dimwitted you negatively attract, when i strike like lightening"

Electric/Light = Red
Magnet = Blue

Sphere is Purple as it could tie in with both (Magnetosphere OR an Electrically charged Sphere [Gauss' Law])

i supposed positive and negative could be purple as well, tying in with Electric charge and Positive and Negative magnets

you could add all these up as a Duodecuple, or multiply the purple

i dontt know.. i am drunk

hahahaha hell yeah !!!
new dimensions of thought in here. i'd like to see a "talking shop" thread for mcs to discuss stuff like this.

@skampoe i write by taking concepts and describing that concept in as many ways possible like in the example. "lightening" i kinda use that as a hub that has many pokes to it. some spokes are dead ends but some can connect to other concept hubs.

i tie the dead ends together with rhyme. but in a perfect situation the concept hubs and rhymes coincide seemlessly

"...the shake of her money maker lit by the neon sign/
passin me by like pharcyde i'm on the dark side/
tryna get in her mind like darth vader/
to make her choke with out usin force... or spendin paper/
cause leias wanna be saved in exchange for intercourse/"

actually this whole song is full of stuff like that

anyway...back on subject... adding to bronze n flowerz...
tie the sphere with "i roll in a highly energetic circle"

i wonder if a whole 16 could be constructed this way. fuck. you might rip a hole in spacetime with that kind of shit. lol

euro faggotry at it's finest :mmmyah:

It would be nice to know everything about hip hop after only rocking FL for a couple years, but some of us didn't have youtube when learning how to make music.
