names are vague
hidden amongst beneath
an altogether different class
grazing herds of penned-in meat
at home another mind is forged;
a sense of purpose made
of superiority in every field
of grass and open plain
of mind of creed of how to live
a life of material gain.

At what point does something become so obvious, that it can no longer be ignored?

When it affects you.

When it eats into your life, into the lives of those close, onwards into everything.

It's been a long time coming.

The clarity - once seen - is astounding. There is a dark beauty in its craftmanship, the woven strands that converge to fill your mind like tentacles around its prey, so deeply entrenched that a new reality appears impossible. But a new reality is there, a reality you create when you step from the old.

It will take the New Historians a century to unpack it all - the narrative, the sub-branches, the trick of belief, the methods and the madness.

The losers will rage, their magic spent. Our backs will be turned. We shall no longer hear the shrill voices above our own.

It's pretty telling in my mind that the past seems so wide open, free and full of potential while the future seems to be a closed inevitable ever tightening noose.
Even in the past the future appeared like something to look forward to which had freedom built into it.Sort of like when your a child and you think oh it will be great when i'm an adult cause thats when i will be free to do what i want.Arriving at adulthood the cruel trick has been realized making one long for their youth just as we realize that the present and future is anything but what it should be.

History - as recorded by langauge in textbooks - in no way reflects the history of experience. Knowing what you know now - seeing with your own eyes, experiencing how the present is sold to us - can give you a panoramic view of the possibilities - no, not possiblity, certainty - that the past is altered to reflect and entrench the enduring narrative of an exceptionalist strata that have been in power for an astonishingly long time. The power to avert attention away from connecting disparate strands is paramount.

Had a lucid recently. Shown an alternative view of a particular historical event that sounded so plausible that it immediately rang true.
It sounded right.

But should I tell? It will sound too outrageous to many - and ring true to so few.

there are those that see
those that see when shown
and those that do not see.


Maybe when there are more of those that see.

Maybe that day is coming.

A past that has been sold to us as closed and immutable - is, in fact, wide open, free and full of potential for interpretation.

The future that we sell to ourselves - based on a false closed and immutable past - is, in fact, wide open, free and full of potential of the moment.

memory of the now
heart beat slow and idle
seen across the vista
time and motion
a calm stroll
grass green lush and vibrant
scented with content
a touch of caress
an open gate
the last, the very last
wider and wider the scope
freefall into ascent

and slowly, the beast at the rotten core bares it's teeth, eyes darting hither and thither in no random manner, gaze falling upon those that see it - the slow, snarling grin of recognition dawns, bathing us in the black light of horror, that we shall each know terror and the power that lays within.

and with the words of the Gods unbridled, the true Gods, those of Earth and it's majesty, shall limit their lust by nothing before the teaching of their own; human shall serve God as God lives on Earth and all dissent shall perish, their resistant screams harvested to feed the thirsty.

The Talking head's once in a lifetime is a weirdly emotional song for reasons i'm not quite sure of. Quoting David Byrnes'' Because music is very physical, and often the body understands it before the head.''
What if this is true for everything,what if our bodies held the key to understanding everything.What if we learned to turn to our bodies as tool for understanding reality just as we have focused on our brains(mind).What if it is the rosetta stone needed for full understanding.
Could this be the reason for why the western world has so demonized the body as something to despise and to try to master or deny?
Is this why Joseph Chilton Pearce said “Play is the only way the highest intelligence of humankind can unfold.”

When you see it - the scope of it - you will not believe it.

It is far too much to take in and assimilate in one moment. You will feel overawed and frightened. Frightened that you are powerless and alone in the face of it. That it is too much to bear. That it will change everything you know - that which you love, as well as that which you hate - forever.

But there is an immense beauty in it. A feeling of destiny. A way forward. A way to make sense. A literal revealing of a reality that you knew was there, but were unable to make tangible. The elusive becomes the obvious.

Our descendents will marvel at what we have left them.

shush, you mustn't think it
shush, you mustn't speak
shush, you mustn't see it;
shush, you mustn't believe
that it can exist at all

shush, you must be silent
shush, you must be a fool
shush, you must conform;
shush, you must be evil
knowing it can exist at all

As we continue to look 'downward' into the micro scale i.e. bacteria, atoms and beyond (that which cannot be seen by the eye alone) - it should also be considered that we are capable of looking beyond the macro i.e. solar systems, galaxies, universe.
There is something beyond the macro of which we are not yet aware. It's there - we just need to comprehend it.
Part of a greater entirety.

the door swings open to the smile of an angel that was always there
the soothing light of true radiates across skin and sense a world alone
the wave of time past but yet to begin, touching gentle shiver of expectation from
beguiling and bold and harsh and fair, love and fright, fresh and care
close, but far away from distant here
abandoned and cherished, steps within a world strange and sure
tunnel like, a hole at minds reach
the gap in the space between.

What if we learned to tune in to our bodies (again) to interpret their many relationships to other bodies (again.) Not only, not merely the human, but those other bodies receding to the edge of being, where the very smallest of us reside. Those places in us where our roots dangle in the subatomic void, where potential being and being are less distinct.

Had several lucids last night.

As we evolve (at a faster rate than currently theorized, I might add), we have lost not only physical manifestations determined by environment (i.e. bodily hair), but also experiential and observational abilities.

However, that which is removed by relative redundancy is simultaneously replaced by immediate relevence.

Experiencing thought - as experience - grants full empathy.

It's a form of mind reading, without referential bias

Look at it this way - the ability to think about something - and become it. To experience that thing. To be that thing. That person. To be as comfortable or uncomfortable. To know. To be that, not this. To understand the nuance, the subleties and the reason.

Quite an eye-opener.

Spin maintains momentum

Our reality is perpetual motion. Spin begets momentum, begets spin, begets momentum.

The overall spin of reality - when matched clockwise versus anti-clockwise - is perfectly balanced - appearing static to the relative observer.

This Natural spin is evident in the circular nature of reality.

More later, possibly.

I'm quite comfortable with the notion that we might, in certain states, be able to become others at a number of levels, as though we are them, a sort of controlled and directed dissocative personality. (Authorial voice, act of sympathy, shaman entering the spirit of an animal or an ancestor.) An analogy vaguely in the region might be that of a modern computer running an emulation of an older machine, like a PC running not just a ported version of old arcade software, but running a simulation of the hardware itself which is in turn running the original software. It's not the thing itself, but the experience can be almost identical. The observed changes in brain functioning in extreme cases of dissociative identity disorder seem to bear out the analogy to a degree. I've experienced it many times but it's fucking hard every time.

Anyway, the way I see it, if we aren't already fucked (the climate bullet has been fired with no way to dodge it) cultural diversity is probably as important as species diversity. Millenia of knowledge has been wiped out in less than a few hundred years and it's progressing. The skills and knowledge so called primitive cultures have or had, is not only not a threat, it could or could have been our salvation.

There's an interesting and relevant thread on RI at the mo.
