Watch “Steely Dan – Do It Again” on YouTube

No rights owned, but mad homage.

Steely Dan. An epiphenomenon. Even if you dont like their tone, check out their namesake and a bit of trivia. Much like J. Mitchell, if you dont like them now, you probably will eventually.

Watch “Ike & Tina Turner – Proud Mary | 1971” on YouTube

Do not own rights, just paying mad homage.

Many have done Proud Mary but few compare to this reinterpretation.

Creole delta blues babe!

Control of/and Breath….found notes of mine

Control of breath = 1st goal.

Enables a way to modulate (alchemical correspondance found in this) emotional involvement with the ambient circumstances.

A means towards organizing our mental processes.

In the hope of finally regulating one’s thinking at various levels of will. (correspondance yo hermetic tradition here found)

A concept considered makes great sense to me today whereas two months ago it did not.

Catabolic / Anabolic / Metabolic

Hibernate……? Surely not just yet.

Words of correspondance

The center of a cyclone is a VACCUM, akin feel to the void of your SOLAR PLEXUS

It’s odd, the anatomical term here: a solar plexus is located on the CORONAL plane.

sun / light / aura / halo

convergence ; confluence ; congruence ; confluence ; consilience

Converge field diffuses diffracts atmosphere

Dynamize, galvanize, radiate

The girl who dogged…

She flit and she drove them and him mad, both equal and in tirn,

Though those who would tell her herself to her face, only elicited her giggles, and quickly jumps ‘ere, with discomfort tempered in and with unconditional love.

She loved man by his his touch. Effortlessly and yet also endlessly.

His confusion at her ease and grace in such a magical endeavor, only furthered her own confusion and lovesome smitteness.

But she could wait.

She was desparately patience…for this.

Effing idiocy of self

Who is not guilty.

As soon as I accuse I am guilty.

Your dispassionate acknowledgement aches as much as that I aver myself to you in dispassion, presumeably.

Share and share alike says the one with no vested interest in sharing.

What are we to make of this?, says the hardworking young lady who only recently became vested.

Benevolence could unsuspectingly become malificence here.

Here in our position. Do we care?

But what would they know of us, anywazy.

They would know what we allowed and told.

Because as beautiful nobodies, we dodge gazes but come together in verbal symetry.

Equilaterally pentacling.

Miraculous


From Tilopa, THE SONG OF MAHAMUDRA

Though words are spoken to explain the Void,

The Void as such can never be expressed.

Though we say, “The Mind is a bright light,”

It is beyond all words and symbols.

Although the mind is void in essence,

All things it embraces and contains.

“Terrific”, like “awful”, used to mean something quite diferent…

What is up with roman à clef: an ode

AE am16 years past 18 only to realize I just needed to tolle lege “roman à clef” or “à clef” as some dictionaries prefer.

After I did, a walrus showed up with a tooth pick, surely to eat me I assume! When he finally cracked the shell and got to my goodn’ tasty spots, the Walrus plucks out this tiny, heavy with gravity pebble which he proceeds to Pop in his face hole.

Next thing I remember, I’m standing alone on the shore. My body feels doubley massive…

–like some wave interference pattern is refracting my metabolism in some all to-

gether new way.

The original compound returns but it has extra dimensions/multitudes than it initially had, and yet the compound never underwent any physical change at all. It seemed like it did even though of course it wouldn’t; but, don’t you remember me promising to do the Algerian BootStrap feat for you? In fact, you will recall that I’ve already told you that I’ve stepped on stage and announced my intent. Furthermore, whether you revelate or not, the Trick is already afoot with its inexorable ways.

You can already hear the wheels turning if you listen hard.

 I speak from my experience and not hard numbers and facts.  
So what I say will be true of my experience. And, what I extrapolate from my experiences will be messy and imprecise.

This not a scholarly approach. I’d like to share my thoughts as a cultural player. 

Performances of scholarly work in public forums must come clean to the audience at every possible misstep.

 

On Remorse or Regret

 ..and that fills me with remorse. Which is different than regret.

–  William Powell ( author of the Anarchist Cookbook as quoted from the documentary American Anarchist) ° context for quote below, citations at end.

 I think I’m aware that there is certainly that possibility, I think that’s inherent in the 3 paragraphs that I have just read…

[Interrupting his current statement, Powell begins reading directly from the text]

Allow the fear and the loneliness and hatred to build inside, you allow your passions to fertilize the seeds of constructive revolution, allow your love of freedom to overcome the false value placed on human life, freedom is based on respect and respect must be earned by the spilling of blood.”

[Resuming his statement in the documentary, he reflects that]

I can remember writing that and I remember thinking that is a cool turn of phrase. I was pleased with that at the time. Now, I think it’s absolute rubbish, but at the time it sounded really good to me. I can see that people might read portions of this book and find justification for doing very destructive and evil things.

A Quote to Find the Rabbit Hole

“Zeno’s arguments, in some form, have afforded grounds for almost all theories of space and time and infinity which have been constructed from his time to our own.”

Uncertainty & Doubt

 

stucco

I spend a lot of time worrying about whether or not I am right when me submits a proposition and ascribes it to be truthful; and, I then spend a lot of time worrying about whether it is important or even relevant to worry at all about a proposition being true or not.

I know that I do not know nearly as much as me thinks myself knows.

I do not know what is actually knowable for the me that I know as myself.

Thus, how can I ever know if what I think is right or wrong?

More importantly, if knowledge exists outside of my realm of perception, it does not matter if I am right or wrong, the closest or not.

This makes me spend a lot of time worrying about how anyone can act like they know anything.  This terrifies me and myself because I do not want to  live in a world whose existence cannot be perceptible.

But why does that terrify me?  Shouldn’t it liberate me from the responsibility of trying to be right and seek truth all the time.  If everything just is what it is; I could just be what I am or I could fret and fuss about proving that the my reality is knowable to me.  

It’s just too scary to get dropped into a world and have no clue how you got there, what you are, and what will happen when you inevitably are not here anymore.
