Welcome to The Third Realm, a magazine/blog covering underground music, arts and culture, cult film and weird/macabre stories from around the world. But mostly horror films.

Why The Third Realm?

Let me start by stating for the record that the name of this blog has nothing to do with the band called The Third Realm (http://www.last.fm/music/Third+Realm).

The Third Realm was a term coined by the German logician, mathematician and philosopher Gottlob Frege (1848-1925), (For biographical info, see http://www.iep.utm.edu/frege/).

Gottlob Frege (1848-1925)

“Frege called mental entities the first realm and material objects the second realm. Based on his distinction between sense and reference, he claimed that there is a third realm of sense or thought . It is different from the realm of ideas because any idea needs a bearer (they are yours or mine), but the senses of words we use in communication exist independently of us.” (http://www.blackwellreference.com/public/tocnode?id=g9781405106795_chunk_g978140510679521_ss1-60)

The site is run by Steve Wilson – Guitarist/Vocalist with the band Iron Void and the founder of Doomanoid Records.
