Conversations With The Sun From ScotlandMonday, 29/01/2018
This is trying to capture a 3 dimensional sense of walking down the East Sands in St. Andrews at twilight and the way the light bounces off the water and the wet sand, along with the stars and the streetlamps and all that. Meditation seems to have changed the music I’m hearing in my head, as time goes on – but I did want to create another piano duet for the two hubristic youngsters required to play that last one – may as well write a concert’s worth, right?
Lots of love to you, thanks for visiting this site…
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
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
The Trend…Saturday, 16/09/2017
I heard a very good explanation of where meaning can be found – from internet meme and Kermit-voiced, Dr. Jordan Peterson, the other day. He said that humans have a number of dimensions to their existence and many of them extend beyond their immediate lives; their future selves, the community around them, their descendents – and so on… He suggested that if one patterned one’s activity so that it matched the pattern of these extra-personal components of life… it would register in the body as meaning… I really can’t think of a better way to put it than that.
My contention with technology is that it creates a kind of armour around the human body, that obscures the greater pattern beyond, disabling any possibility of true resonance with the natural environment for which we’re largely adapted. The vitriol I see directed at millenials when they tussle for power with false grievances, is
