Dancing Star Paradoxes

 

“The attitude that nature is chaotic and that the artist puts order into it is a very absurd point of view, I think. All that we can hope for is to put some order into ourselves.”
Willem de Kooning

 

“One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

 

“How wonderful that we have met with a paradox. Now we have some hope of making progress.”
Niels Bohr

 

Create from chaos a new order
like sand castles doomed when the tide comes in
A fun game that symbolizes our lives
we create temporary structures of thought and deed
one day the tide comes in and those structures vanish
while we build another
never realizing the friendship of entropy
for without it we could not create
Eternity would pass and we would stagnate
in castles that have become prisons
yearning for destruction’s kiss
so we could create anew.

 

Blessings, G

Cutting Up in Verse

 

“What Bill [William S. Burroughs] explained to me then was pivotal to the unfolding of my life and art: Everything is recorded. If it is recorded, then it can be edited. If it can be edited then the order, sense, meaning and direction are as arbitrary and personal as the agenda and/or person editing. This is magick. For if we have the ability and/or choice of how things unfold—regardless of the original order and/or intention that they are recorded in—then we have control over the eventual unfolding. If reality consists of a series of parallel recordings that usually go unchallenged, then reality only remains stable and predictable until it is challenged and/or the recordings are altered, or their order challenged.”
— Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (Thee Psychick Bible)

 

Cut up images flow
like a tree in the desert
longing for the fiery blaze
that feeds the heat
of the tidal wave.
The three-legged chair
beats the wounded man
as the piano comforts
his raging slippers.
Begat oranges said the
wizened cactus
as the warrior
finds his true
ocean
through dreams that
scissors seek
and the morning’s
bright stars forgot.
— G A Rosenberg

Finding our Inner Chaos

“Chaos is what we’ve lost touch with. This is why it is given a bad name. It is feared by the dominant archetype of our world, which is Ego, which clenches because its existence is defined in terms of control.”
― Terence McKenna

 

Where does creativity come from? Oh with order you get pretty designs. There’s a lot you can do with the building blocks of sacred geometry. Things organized with shape and form with rigid lines. Imagination tho is not orderly. Imagination fully expressed has very few clear lines. We go deeply inside of ourselves and draw from a well of chaos where everything and anything that we’ve ever encountered either awake or asleep lies. A concept bubbles up and we seek to express it. Not capture it because ideas don’t take kindly to being caged up. We impress our own internal order on these shapes and something begins to form. It may be a poem or it may be art. It may simply be a new way of looking at life that has not been encountered. It begins tho with that seed of chaos. Even fractal designs are a form of order emerging from a primal chaos. Without that link to chaos nothing new is created.
Blessings, G
