Playful blue goddess. As consciousness continues to evolve, so perhaps do the archetypes. Guardian and guide to the Noosphere, is she a physical manifestation of Gaia?
She also seems to resonate with Kali Ma, the dark hindu goddess associated with, among other things, kundalini energy and transcendent reality.
Despite the visual kinship with Medusa (whose serpents might also be seen as a nod to rising kundalni energy) the blue goddess's tentacles represent energy, or the communication web, connecting all living things.
I can't help but ponder the curious increase of the archetypal blue alien-like goddess and the association with planetary consciousness, the most overt reference in popular culture being the Navi in James Cameron's "Avatar."
