Hemispheric Personality Test

If A was B and B was A. If each shared their respective crafts, their dreams, myths and imaginations, their observations, calculations and reservations. If logic went out dancing with an axis unknown, if an unknown axis found its pivot, what world would we live in, one of fear and denial, tilted to the curvature of a world slipping off its own edge, or one of love and acceptance, wobbling and counter balancing in daily rotations to find its center.

Does imagination conjure reason in as much as reason conjures imagination?

The Atlantic Meets The Emerald Isle

Whats

The search for reason ends at the shore of the known; on the immense expanse beyond only the sense of the ineffable can glide.

We do not leave the shore of the known in search of adventure or suspense or because of the failure of reason to answer our questions. We sail because our mind is like a fantastic seashell, and when applying our ear to its lips we hear a perpetual murmur from the waves beyond the shore.

Citizens of two realms, we all must sustain a dual allegiance…

Alchemical-Reality

We are the photometers, we the irritable goldleaf and tinfoil that measure the accumulations of the subtle element. We know the authentic effects of the true fire through every one of its million disguises.

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

We are the elements of desire, forged in alchemical fires, to produce a stone so fragile, yet so bold. Emblazoned with truth, yet blinded by reflections, what we fail to see allows which to grow out of itself infinitely.

Ghosts Of An Empire

theempireneverended copy copy

One after another the world has fallen, many temples built only to collapse. Time is the warden, the prison is the mind. The Empire that never ends, a cameleon stuck on a rock, we are brought up to believe in histories deceit, false doctrines they teach us well, to convince the majority that they are free to choose, to open the cell doors wide, yet none would dare walk out into the Wild.

The Surgical Precision Of The Universe

Shapeshifting Along The Medial Axis Mundi:

In the Theatre today will we attempt to demonstrate a full dissection of the conscious individuated psyche of a rather peculiar occurring species known as Homo Sapiens Sapiens and hopefully will conclude with a complete reattachment to the source.

Surgical Abstract:

After the initial incision along the 5th dimensional coronal line we witnessed the birth of Homo Sapiens Sapiens. Throughout the induced linear time scales the species has reconfigured by way of trial and error various processes to alterate between conscious states, they have discovered the following. “Giving ourselves over completely to any given moment is a meditative process of de-individuation, the more we lose of ourselves the more we gain of the other, a process of transference whereby our being is suspended temporarily and thus reanimated into the presence of another, a non-dualistic reciprocity of sensorial exchange occurs within the relationship of object and observer, if the process persists unabated a reunification will occur, whereby there will exist no entrance or exist, no division between self and whole.”

In Closing:

Although the species has made evident a steep learning curve and is still somewhat stumbling about on the slopes of their ever wanting self agrandizing supplementation of feeding their egos, they have shown the transverse ability to heal the wounds of their own making and thereby still hold the keys to their own evolutionary potential with thus the ability to ford the river and connect back their mother earth. It is our hopes that through the various practices of personal introspection by meditative and altered states of consciousness that humanity will reawaken to the symmetry found within the living systems that they manifest and our manifested within.

Adventures In A Glass Of Water

We try and catch the talisman, swinging and swaying, the smoke pours out our eyes. The depth of knowing what cannot be known, the seat of desire, resting comfortably as we try and tell it otherwise. Transcendent irridenscene trails the attempts of controlling the chaos, what is left alone will control itself. We are both the sacred and the profane, the instrument and the one that blows its incantations, the seas that sing the echos from an ocean and the shore of an island meditating on the existance of things.
