GeneralThe Gospel of Philip: "Jesus took them all by stealth, for he did not appear as he was, but in the manner in which they would be able to see him. He appeared to them all. He appeared to the great as great. He appeared to the small as small. He appeared to the angels as an angel, and to men as a man. Because of this, his word hid itself from everyone. Some indeed saw him, thinking that they were seeing themselves, but when he appeared to his disciples in glory on the mount, he was not small. He became great, but he made the disciples great, that they might be able to see him in his greatness."
MusicPop music is for sheep, and we the are shepherds disguised as wolves.
Integral music: the sort you find in quadraphonic spaces or can 'compose' on a computer. The music in which sounds have been clarified and expurgated and which, shorn of all noise and static, is, so to speak, restored to its technical perfection. The sounds of such music are no longer the play of a form, but the actualization of a programme. It is a music reduced to a pure wavelength, the final reception of which, the tangible effect on the listener, is exactly programmed too, as in a closed circuit. It is, in a sense, a virtual music, flawless and without imagination, merging into its own model and even the enjoyment of it is virtual enjoyment. Is this still music? The question must be open to doubt, since they have actually come up with the idea of reintroducing noise into it to make it more 'musical'.
MoviesIllusion, dreams, passion, madness and drugs, but also artifice and simulacrum - these were reality's natural predators. They have all lost energy, as though struck down by some dark, incurable malady. We have, then, to find an artificial equivalent for them, since, if we do not, reality, once it has attained its critical mass, will end up destroying itself spontaneously, will implode of its own accord - which it is, in fact, currently doing, giving way to the Virtual in all its forms.
TelevisionReality has fallen prey to Virtual reality, the final consequence of the process begun with the abstraction of objective reality - a process that ends in Integral Reality... Even objective reality becomes a useless function, a kind of waste that is ever more difficult to exchange and circulate. We have moved, then, from objective reality to a later stage, a kind of ultra-reality that puts an end to both reality and illusion.
There is nothing much to write: God and I, we are one in knowledge. Why waste words on my-self? Another simulacrum, another manifestation, another individuated accident in a world that is very much an error.
Writing about myself could only hope to perpetuate this error and this erroneous belief in the importance of individuals and in the false hyperdistinction between our selves and our others. There is no me and there is no you: God and I, we are one in knowledge.
I'll not be your mirror.
