Jabberwock Meets Vorpal Sword

Psyched in a Pocket [poem]

Gotta hole in me pocket poem
A Singularity, maybe A Portall
Out which grotesque monsters
E-merge antsy to slaughter &
Who knows what awful thinks?

The Thousand Year Reich

The Byzantine Empire was the only real "thousand year Reich":

Vasiliev's History of the Byzantine Empire

Fall of Byzantium & the 'Third Rome' [in three parts]

Hagya Sophia - Justinians's cathedral, built 537a.d.

William Butler Yeats' Visions of Byzantium

"At midnight on the Emperor's pavement flit
Flames that no faggot feeds, nor steel has lit,
Nor storm disturbs, flames begotten of flame,
Where blood-begotten spirits come...
Astraddle on the dolphins' mire and blood,
Spirit after spirit! ...
Those images that yet
Fresh images beget,
That dolphin-torn, that gong-tormented sea....

"O sages standing in God's holy fire
As in the gold mosaic of a wall,
Come from the holy fire, perne in a gyre,
And be the singing-masters of my soul.
Consume my heart away; sick with desire
And fastened to a dying animal
It knows not what it is; and gather me
Into the artifice of eternity." --W.B. Yeats

Edouard Manet : La Serveuse de Bocks, 1879

Beer for health?

Scientists recommend drinking 120 gallons of beer per day? They say that amount (of low hop content domestic beer, I suppose) is required to supply an effective dose of xantohumol.

It seems that possible negative effects/reactions of xantohumol are unknown at this time. I suppose that the fact that "it strengthens the immune system" could mean an increased risk of auto-immune diseases. The ancient adage of "Nothing to excess" should be kept in mind.

Stripping Jesus (The Spoliation) by El Greco

Good Friday

The Gnostic celebration of Good Friday can be understood from reading the "Secret Book of John", also known as the "Apocryphon".

It represents a transcendent view of the sufferings of Jesus.

The "Hymn of Jesus" is a dance.

Gustav Holst represented the "Hymn of Jesus" symphonically:

basking lizzie

Ce que dir la bouche d'ombre?

Victor Hugo sings:

"You must know that everything has its law, its goal, its
That from the star to the atom, immensity listens
to itself;
That everything has a consciousness inside the
. . .
Everything speaks;
The air which passes, the seabird which sails;
Each blade of grass, flower, germ and element.
Did you imagine the universe differently?
Everything in the universe says something to someone;
One thought fills with superb tumult.
God didn't make any sound without mixing a verb in it;
Everything speaks.
And now, man, do you know why everything speaks?
It is because wind, waves, flames, trees, reeds, rocks ---
Everything is alive."

--- Translated from the French. Victor Hugo, "Ce que dir la bouche
(What says the shadow's mouth) in Les contemplations,
Paris: Flammarion, 1995, pp. 361-63.

More translations of Monsieur Victor Hugo's poems at

Part Two of these translations opens with Sections 7 - 11 of "The Scourge of Heaven", written in 1828 and published in Les Orientales in 1829. On one level of meaning it is about the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah in ancient Israel; but why, I wonder, does it dwell on "twin towers"? Could it have been a prophecy of the attack on New York City's twin towers in 2001?

Victor Hugo does indeed seem to have had phantic talents following those spiritist seances during his exile on the Channel Islands, Jersey and Guernsey, discussed in Conversations with Eternity.

Who's afraid of Gilles Deleuze and Pierre-Felix Guattari?

Apparently not Slavoj Zizek and the 'marxist' claque. Or are they perhaps 'post-marxist'?

Interestingly enough, the word claque, which was popular among intelligent thinkers forty years ago, seems to have been disappeared ... a 'marxist' technique that originated with Josef Stalin as I recall.
'Claque' was adopted from the French where it originally meant a body of paid applauders or jeerers, as the case might be, among an audience. I can't recall an effective English synonym for it.
So then, who's afraid...? by Deleuze and Guattari Michael Eldred on Heidegger and Marxism 'claque'

Meister Eckhart & Spiritual Alchemy

"The self-manifestation of God in the Trinity is followed by his manifestation in his creatures. Everything in them that is truly real is God's eternal being, but God's being does not manifest itself thus in its entire fullness. In this antithesis may be expressed the relation of Eckhart's philosophy to panentheism, both as regards similarities abd differences. According to Eckhart, God's creatures have not, as Thomas Aquinas held, merely ideal preexistence in God, i.e. their conceptual essence (essential quidditas) coming from the divine intelligence, but their existence (esse) being foreign to the divine being. Rather, the true being of creatures is immanent in the divine being.... Should God withdraw his being from his creatures, they would disappear as the shadow on the wall disappears when the wall is removed [Brahman- the ground of being]. This perishible being is the creature confined within the limits of space and time. On the other hand, every creature, considered according to its true entity, is eternal."
"Eckhart...distinguished between the psyche and the spiritual element in human beings, as did such early Gnostics as Valentius. Valentinian 'spiritual seed' can be compared to Eckhart's 'fuenklein', 'scintilla animae', '
ground of the soul', or 'soul-spark', which he identifies with "Imago Dei" [made in the image of God] from the Bible. This indestructible and divine element in the human being is for Eckhart ... only a potentiality, a latent function that needs to be nourished by virtuous living and spiritual vigilance in order to grow and expand. ...through classic Christian stages of purificative, contemplative, and illuminative life, it comes to the unitive life where soul-spark is transformed intom Logos."

This seems to equate with the Dao jia (or Philosophic Taoism), or the Neo-Confucian Hsin-Shu, or Esoteric Buddhist Alchemy whose ideal result is the immortal Xian or the 'truly human' Jen. (hidden in pop religion and folk superstition)

Durga slaying demons

The Goetia and Gnosis

Ashmodai or Asmodeus, the demon in the Book of Tobit seems to have become 'the gay demon' in our postmodern era.

More manifestations of "the secret of the twofold goat":

And then, the 'River' of Gnosis:

Paracelsus & the twofold principle

"(And by) the very nature of Being, when anything is done to extreme excess, loves to change things into their opposites : [one sees this] in the seasons, in plants, in animal bodies, and not the least in politics." Plato, Republic, Book 7, 563e (XV)

"The Lord spoke to Moses.... He said to him: Tell your brother AAron ... he shall take two from the community of the Israelites two he-goats for a sin-offering ... and set them before the Lord at the entrance to the Tent [or Tabernacle] of the Presence. He shall cast lots over he two goats, one to be for the Lord and the other for Azazel [or the Precipice]...." Leviticus16: 1-10

Too much freedom?

Bernard Suzanne's reading from Plato's Republic :

And, if you please, I shall proceed a little further, continuing the translation of this text in my own excessively free reading: "Vigorous indeed, but what comes after this?" says Adeimantus. Socrates continues, "The same disease essentially that arising in the oligarchy, destroyed it; namely, the same, but even stronger excess from too much freedom, license actually, turns a democracy into a slave state. The very nature of Being, when any process reaches full excess, loves to change things into their opposites; this is seen in the calendar seasons, in growing plants, in the physiology of human and animal bodies, and not any less in politics."

The William Blake Archive

"I am Orc, wreath'd round the accursed tree :
The tunes are ended : shadows pass, the morning 'gins to break :
The fiery joy that Urizen perverted to ten commands,
That night he led the starry hosts thro' the wide wilderness :
That stony law I stamp to dust ; and scatter religion abroad
To the four winds as a torn book, & none shall gather the leaves ;
But they shall rot on desert sands, & consume in bottomless deeps ;
To make the desarts bloom, & the deeps shrink to their fountains,
And to renew the fiery joy, and burst the stony roof,
That pale religious lechery, seeking Virginity,
May find it in a harlot ; and in coarse-clad honesty
The undefiled tho' ravished in her cradle night and morn :
For every thing that loves is holy, life delights in life ;
Because the soul of sweet delight can never be defil'd.
Fires enwrap the earthly globe, yet man is not consum'd ;
Amid the lustful fires he walks ; his feet becomelike brass,
His knees and thighs like silver, & his breast and head like gold."
--Wm. Blake, *America: a Prophecy*, copy O, object 10. To skip to Blake's Works

Compersion? An interesting word. I don't know if was used in classical
Latin writings but the root and prefix look quite appropriate.

Pergo, pergere is to proceed, continue or go on with and com- meaning
together, jointly. 'aspersion' comes from pergere also.

Jealousy is William Blake's term for moralism as well as what is
generally known as jealousy. He attributes most of the evils of
society to moralism/jealousy.

Percy Bysshe Shelley would have relished this term, compersion, in
his 'freedom transcending monogamy'.

Visualizing the asthenosphere

Hasn't the geological perspective of the educated populace changed? Many of us have been exposed through various media to the 'plate tectonics' explanation of earthquakes; therefore, digging through the Earth to China no longer seems as feasible as it did to the cartoonists' following of sixty or so years ago. The idea of a superhot asthenosphere, on which those tectonic plates float, seems rather widely accepted now; least by the "secular humanists".

Hugs 'NC 18' now?

Get your free Badware!

Years ago I found that Real Player was taking over my PC. I removed it; and found Windows Media Player much more satisfactory. I was disadvantaged for awhile by RP's virtual monopoly on the BBC and many other important sites, but gradually, over the years, more sites have made WMP an alternative to RP for watching/listening to their material. Here's a "PC World article about more recent RP victimization:

Recently I made the mistake of playing the DVD of Number 23 on my PC; a virulent type of badware took over my puter, placing numerous programs files throughout. It was quite difficult to remove it totally. Only a hardware firewall lets the computer operator know about this sort of infection, because it radically slows your puter. A sofware firewall would let these spybots function unbeknownst to the operator.

Incidentally, the number 24 may be challenging '23' for the creepiness title soon, especially in Brazil where it has come to mean 'veado', meaning the animal 'deer' as well as the gay 'dearie'.

"WAIL" [of a helluva Frail?]

"Love has gone a-rocketing.
That is not the worst,
I could do without the thing,
And not be the first.

"Joy has gone the way it came.
That's nothing new;
I could get along the same ---
Many people do.

"Dig for me the narrow bed,
Now I am bereft.
All my petty hates are dead,
And what have I got left?"
