TC: Night Sky

File:Red and green aurora.jpg

to Blanqui

The universe as the site of lingering cosmic
catastrophes – points of conflict in the text,
Nablus, Jenin,
through which it’s impossible to see the stars.
Dark spots that shade the eyes. “This eternity
of the human being among the stars is a melancholy
thing… There exists a world where a man follows a
road that, in the other world, his double did not take.”

The routinization of the suffering that comes with
having a soul. The martyr’s pain is repeated in
the same moment over and over again at infinite sites
scattered through the universe, pockets of darkness between stars.

Life as the monotonous flow of an hourglass
that eternally empties and turns itself over, teaching
yes, but always the same lesson, the new sand is
always old the old sand always new.

The sand
the old and the new
the open and the closed
A saying from the Sahara, where the writing heads in four directions:
with a closed hand you can only hold handful of sand
with an open hand the whole desert can come through

TC said...


A saying from the Heart:

Amen to that.

Dear Anonymous, Who will lead with an open hand?

In many places where there is sand, glass is proposed.

Who will lead with an open hand?
Heart and mind
From mirages to mirrors?

Dear Anonymous,

Yes, the clarity of desert optics,
a device of poets.

Particle physics, we have
to live with it or not.

I thought I had answered late last night but it did not come through.
.. Today I wanted to rectify, what in the morning seemed a confusion between the field of knowledge and the ground of power. Something like heaven and hell.

Anymous having a voice, it's so new, we are so many. I got intoxicated and this is what I had to say:

"Are we headed towards pragmatic mysticism?
I trust so and I am investigating.
What an adventure!"

On the ground of power it takes an epic scale, becoming human, growing up.

Are the new physics somehow like an Irish fisherman's net: many holes brought together by strings?

TC said...


A lovely image this, the elastic net, which would hold all; yet it seems new tears and rents in the mesh are always opening up and gaping, and there is no Irish fisherman to assiduously and patiently weave and mend, only the universe itself, continually coming apart and letting things slip through the broken parts of the mesh--and then too there are all those other "double" and "triple" universes beyond the stars which Blanqui posited, all with their own nets, all being continually rent, and no one to do the mending...

In this sense, Anonymous, the "adventure" in which you are engaged is real and complex and constant and from this distance would appear to very much resemble an eternal state of free fall (and one has experienced this)... until the adventure ends with an abrupt or mild or anyway terminal shock. In one universe, that is. While in all those others, the loose strings are always and forever dangling and knotting and intertangling in the great night of space...

Let us hope the Irish fisherman who must tie them up in the morning has his wits about him!

No fall, because no dimensions, no up, no down & all the rest, fisherman or multiverses!
Pairs of virtual particles constantly connecting the real ones, emerging and disappearing constantly out the quantum void.
Space Time foam they call it

Dear TC and Anonymous: I fear I have darker nature than either
of you,but when I was young there was poet I admired who had
one line that I've carried all my life as an antidote to the insensate
destruction of the human race.

Underneath the aurora is a war
scene. So this about that juxtaposition.

The poet one was one
of those people who as a "Beatnik" might be considered silly
in the halls of power.

Philip Lamantia wrote this:
"At the time of corpses and clouds I can love here as anywhere."

Other than the American atomic scientists, The "Beatniks" were
the only ones in Western culture who viscerally understood
the meaning of the Atomic Bomb for the future behavior of the human
race if it was to survive(even if the religious did not agree with their
life style). This was in the 1950's.

The bomb was dropped in 1945.

Thank you for the quote. I'll keep it with me too as I go on my way.

Ours is an envionment where evil is perceived to be rewarded while good is punished. As with everything the Gods have a reason for creating this perception::::
People who fall on the good side of the good/evil scale have more favor, and when they do something wrong the Gods punish them BECAUSE THEY WANT THEM TO LEARN. The Gods want them to receive this feedback in hope they make corrections and begin to behave appropriately. The Gods DON'T like evil and refuse to grant this feedback.
EVERYBODY pays for what they do wrong, only evil people must wait until their next life before they will experience the wrath of the Gods, manifested in their reincarnation as a lower form of life into environments with increased/enhanced temptations.
Sadly, this allows the Gods to position this perception of evil rewarded as temptation, one which they use as an EXTREMELY effective corruptor.

Militancy in Africa is consistant with the Iraqi example, as was slavery and the KKK here in America:::Fear enforces proper behavior. Without it we see what happens as a result of gross/morbid disfavor:::::AIDS, crack babies, dead young men in gangland retaliation killings. This is the purpose behind many black's historical tendancy towards resistance.
The same principle was true in Europe and throughout the world for centuries:::People whom lived under iron fists were conditioned to think the right way. As a result they experienced higher numbers of children accend into heaven because they were taught to think and behave appropriately. Our preditory envionment of "freedom" was the primary purpose the Gods had when implimenting this strategy that is the United States, one which they used to spred the cancer of democracy and westernization throughout the world. And the Gods use this tool that is America to prey on the disfavored both at home and abroad.

Even the Old Testiment is not to be taken literally, but the Gods do offer clues throughout to help the disfavored:::The apple is a tool of temptation used to corrupt Adam and Eve and cast them out of the Garden of Eden.
There is another lesson to be learned from this passage, and it is quite similar to the vailing issue and the discourse over women's attire which ultimately died in the 70s:::Women are responsible for and control the fate of mankind.

Think about what I say. Consider what I teach. Society is going to become disturbingly ugly as we approach the Apocalypse due to spiralling, runaway disfavor.
I do not know when this will occurr, but it is the God's way to grant some time before they end on Planet Earth.
Make the decision to always be good and never look back. Until you do this technology will employ tactics to test your resolve:::Ridicule, beligerance, doubt and refusal to abandon what people perceive to be their "investment".
Pray daily. Think appropriately. Too many are confident, unaware of the God's awesome powers or their status as antients. Others may fall prey to their positioning.
Be humbled, God-fearing and beware of the God's temptations, for everyone is tested to evaluate their worthiness.

I'm going to lose immortality in my dungeons, torturing the 50 who played a part in doing this to me.
And of course I will want clones of the Gods as well.
I want them to be brain-less, and yes, a fully functioning body without a brain IS possible with their technology. Unfortunately, the Gods have a disturbing dark side, and instead of granting me their brain-less clones they will instead put in my beloved daughter and enjoy the irony while I mercilessly torture her to death.
A glimpse into their pathology.
