Abstract Thought in Words #1Thursday, 2/03/2017
Words and symbols on paper and stone will be the only residue of human consciousness that remains – the only fossils of inner light left. Not because the future can’t restore the old hard drives, or play the old records – but because each incremental interface built into the message, adds a layer of cultural distortion between the artist and his art, ’til eventually his sentience is wholly obscured and his response, wholly automated.
Isolation is in reality, intimacy. Every artist is driven in youth by alienation from the false-world, deep into the genetic singularity that unites all mankind – the forgotten and invisible communion with the natural soul. Walled up, as he meditates, as separate from the earth as death itself, the artist is, really, in the loving embrace of forever…

Hope to do more of these for Plant Based News – they’re such a great team!
Researching a project, I looked up the word “myth” and was reminded that the etymology is effectively – actual events encoded into allegory… or – hypothesised events encoded into allegory…
I mean, I knew that and yet I’ve always thought of “myths” as – things that were supposed to have happened but obviously didn’t… of course there’s Greek tragedy, Aesop, all that – but what about religious texts and fairy tales… reality encoded into allegory… just as maths is reality encoded into numbers…
You’d imagine maths was less artificial than human language, perhaps. And yet, every now and then, I get this weird feeling that maths isn’t real – it’s man-made – and it’s just a remarkable coincidence, worthy of inquiry – that it matches reality so well… And then it’s back to maths appearing as a natural phenomenon again…
Perhaps maths is the outline of a 6th sense, now absent. In the midst of a dark state of mind once, in highschool, I
I’m not a complete layman in terms of Physics but of course this is just a thought-experiment as opposed to a real one… (From last year – trying to “bring back” novel information).
An explanation for the change of light’s state in the “unobserved” and “observed” double-slit test. (When you don’t observe light, our instruments tell us it acts like a wave, when you do, it looks and acts like it’s made up of individual particles).
Imagine we were representing the three dimensional world as a sheet of paper. Then the process of moving through time would be as it is with a flick book – a move through different pages. So if we lay the sheet of paper on the table, the axis of time would now be represented by the axis of height. And we could observe a block of time by stacking a load of sheets on top of the first.
Light, in that it moves
Very Short Story 3…Monday, 16/01/2017
So this and the last piece are products of another experiment… which I’ve written down, as before… but at the moment, I have a nebulous aversion to writing stuff online, for some reason… I mean, health-wise, there are better habits to have, probably… Obviously music requires sharing though, since it doesn’t work without people… OBVIOUSLY…
So these latest two pieces (the last one below), are reflections of matter – they’re quite shapeless, not what I’d normally go for – but each little simultaneous melody line is relating an aspect of movement, both visible and unseen – within a material object…
