Resistance is futile - you will be assimilated into the collective of photographers.
My association when passing a stump during a walk with my dog might not open up for you - the same goes for the picture title chosen. Real "Trekkies" might be closer to it.
When I started reviewing the Star Trek Voyager episodes again some time ago, the stump revealed a strange similarity to the optical implant of the re-humaized Borg "Seven of Nine". Photoshop emphasized the ruptured parts of the sawn area by assimilating it's original colors into a silverish grey - just as the implants.
If you get suspicious about my mental health now, well - I am OK. Regard it as a kind of abstract art (and maybe consider watching one or another feature of the Voyager episodes soon) and wait for some "normal" pictures soon.
