Cut-Up Miscellaneous Duality

 

“I had always been impressed by the fact that there are a surprising number of individuals who never use their minds if they can avoid it, and an equal number who do use their minds, but in an amazingly stupid way. I was also surprised to find many intelligent and wide-awake people who lived (as far as one could make out) as if they had never learned to use their sense organs: They did not see the things before their eyes, hear the words sounding in their ears, or notice the things they touched or tasted. Some lived without being aware of the state of their own bodies.”
— Carl Jung

 

no evil,no good and no gray, just vectors of existence
the snake weaving its way through…
showing that there is always more than the reality we know
(shadow abyss… apple, strange fruit as we all hang)
there is power in each surge…every touch of the abyss shakes the bubble reality

“Have you ever found, when discovering a new writer who blows you away, a certain kind of mourning when you find they have passed? wishing that their insights continued tho you were little more than aware of them by name when they were alive?”

I am the ghost in the machine. The scent of honeyed seduction curling through my being

This is the house of the moon and the god forms are treated more eternal. Our job would be relatively simple, This is one of the rewards of playing around with symmetry. The role of the animal within is introduced alongside what are called “blocks to becoming” A becoming animal always involves
their thought. All we had to do was put everyday language into equation form and understand that the virgin whore is not simply a blend of the two poles.

Are we all Survival artists, surviving through anything life throws at us until we die or are we Non-Survival artists, each of us through our lives building towards our masterpiece of the life ending?

Reality Games

“The chess-board is the world; the pieces are the phenomena of the universe; the rules of the game are what we call the laws of Nature. The player on the other side is hidden from us. We know that his play is always fair, and patient. But also we know, to our cost, that he never overlooks a mistake, or makes the smallest allowance for ignorance.”
— Thomas Henry Huxley

 

The Player on the other side determines what the game is. Sometimes it is checkers where the moves are relatively simple and I only need to think a few steps ahead. Sometimes he rolls the dice and my next play comes out to a combination of luck and telekinesis (“Are there any tele-kinetics out there in the audience. Raise my hand”) Sometimes we play Chess and strategy is required and like the quote says, he is fair , patient and unforgiving. More often than not he plays Dungeon Master and my life resembles a Dungeons and Dragon game that combines luck, skill and strategy to win out. The best thing about those times is the amount of choice available including who I get to be in the situation. If I could I’d figure out how to be a Magician Warrior Bard but then part of my nature seems to want to explore as many options as possible. Still Circumstances as well as whim determines the Player’s choice of game.
You may think that I abdicate responsibility when I speak of the choices of this player. You may even think I don’t have the courage to decide myself and so I embrace this ridiculous dichotomy. Yet its it still duality when we realize that the player on the other side is myself and every game and move designed with my evolution in mind?
Blessings, G
