Story 5…Monday, 27/11/2017
I finished this… It’s programmatic; telling a specific story… It had been about Zuckerberg, but it’s changed a bit… It’s a duet for 2 pianos; 3 max. (For 2 accomplished pianists or 3 not so experienced… For two hubristic young men with an appetite for showing off or 3 older people with more responsibilities and self-esteem). If you write it into three parts, they’re fairly easy – the challenge is playing together…
0:00 My grandparents’ house…
0:22 The Rezerection are playing in a field nearby in Leuchars…
0:40 Walking down a corridor in Bush House – I am the most persistent part of this enveloping hallucination…
1:12 Our ability to survive the modern world comes from our history on the Savanna – we are a remarkable species, you know? The spears have evolved into paper-spikes…
1:28 Still, this corridor isn’t going to walk down itself, is it? If
Short Story 4/ 5…Saturday, 25/11/2017
This is a short story about talking to plants… It is fictitious – just a thought experiment, innit? Trying out alternative explanations for accepted phenomena, as an exercise…
[I want to relax out of the trifling miscellany of day to day life. Can you please take me on a walk round a human-centric gallery of The Divine? I’d love that. In return, I’ll pass on anything of importance that you show me…]
[[You think that space and time are requirements of movement but actually movement is a requirement for space and time – it’s that way round. It was consciousness moving that formed the dimensions of physical existence.]]
[See this is what I love about you – you don’t mess around with smalltalk.]
[[No function for it.]]
[So let me get this straight – the vibrating energy that constitutes all things… is also cranking out time? And also cranking
TV (Abstract Thought #3)Saturday, 4/11/2017
1. Television, transmitted to children is a kind of technicolour robbery of their past, present and future.
1.1 Past – it denies them the traditional stories, shaped over generations to explain reality in a way that has been proven to reliably raise children into functioning adults. In the place of these are commercial algorithms, cynically devised to coerce individuals into economic transactions which benefit their elders at the obvious expense of their own mental health.
1.2 Present – The gift of knowing anything through television is paid for by the cost of not having it in reality – theft by transmission. This superimposition of false and unassuageable needs – draws more of a person’s consciousness away from their perception of the present, which is therefore physically classified by the body as unsatisfactory – and into the permanent pursuit of the unreal. The physical trigger for this chase is a
Some traits of a recently departed friend that I think are worth striving for;
His courage to live life on his own terms – even to face death on his own terms
His incredible talent, work ethic, and interest in the realm of Art
His commitment to others – his friendships were intense because he felt things deeply, but he had a willingness to apologise and forgive
His kindness to animals
His consistent impishness, especially towards authority figures
The fact he made a point of saying what he wanted to before it was too late
Bravo – would rather he’d have stayed for those of us who have to face a future without him, but objectively speaking – the end of a chapter, well lived.
Why Is So Much Art Rubbish?Saturday, 7/10/2017
(Some reworked ideas previously posted here – for another website…)
When people create false needs in society in order to sell products, the audience is presented with an augmented model of success to aim for, themselves, which distorts their natural aspirations on mass. They quickly feel they have to emulate these behaviours to be well regarded against this new yardstick of adequacy… But as they join forces with those creating the original products, they do so out of social pressure rather than actual ability, so that their inferior skills lead to the degradation and ultimate destruction of the entire enterprise over time. [The Portal Effect].
Genuine creativity is a natural part of our behaviour and a defining mode of communication that is incredibly important to preserve. Modern art however, that focuses on commercial success – doesn’t function in this way because it seeks to take [profit] rather than to
