befuddled
or in another life
some mathematician
i dreamed up a groovy sequence of notes
the numbers always came up for me
the beautiful sevens
the lovely thirteens
the supreme twenty threes
with my king minus subtraction contraption
with my strings of vulgar fractions
with my areas
with my volumes
with my sweet velocity
with my ratios and indices
with my theoretical place in the universe
i juggled numbers in such a way
even those who could not understand would see
the fruitful curves of geometry
where the numbers turned into music
and the music turned into a spell
and the spell was a number of words
and each number represented a value
a colour and a letter
and i grabbed hold of existence
at its deepest square root
at the prime number embedded in its core
i tore back the zeros from the one
at once i perceived this reality’s formulae
which cannot ever be accurately expressed
only inwardly observed
everything fitted the sequence
the sequence was a loop
the loop was a circle with radii and
a voluptuous circumference
by means of certain calculations
the nature of reality could be apprehended
on paper
in pencil
or in the stars in our skies
or in the majesty of storms
or in the hand of karma
or in the arms of love
or in the art of the old masters
or in the eyes of the glorious saints
or in the finality of death
the final division
between the living and the dead
dead or alive
off or on
zero or one
we are binary creatures in an omni-dimensional model
in theatres of operations
before the great emperors of our worlds
our 3 worlds
past present future
here there everywhere
jesus jehovah holyspirit
brahma vishnu shiva
good bad and ugly
yes the threes came thick and fast as
i performed for those great kings
my number dance
my sequence of perfect notes
my musical vision
my deduction of unreality
my addition of infinties
my incredible arithmetic tock tick
oh time
oh space
oh intelligence
oh imperceptibility
out of thin air
i pulled the numbers
that proved the theorem
that justified the joy
that permeated each strata
that multiplied the data
that love increased and increased
until
suddenly
it all ceased

    Oh wow! Brilliant! Whether people choose to believe it or not, for a very long time I have believe everything revolves, or stems back to numbers; so for me this blog was 100%. I love figures, always have done and without them life past, present and future would be so random and chaotic it doesn't bare thinking about.
    Incidentally Mr K you are a 5, which means you are a stimulating person. You brighten social gatherings with your fresh/original ideas. There is a lot of nervous energy within you looking for an outlet. You love freedom and you see this life as an ongoing adventure, which is infectious for those you meet and you inspire others. Your bane is that you love to indulge your senses with food and drink. You have an appetite for anything that stimulates the senses – sex, food, alcohol, and drugs so discipline is a necessity for you. You are a little irresponsible and quick in satisfying your sensual urges. You have a kind of swashbuckling personality. People see you as the adventurer that you are. They expect the unexpected from you, and when they don't you often surprise them. You have a quick and eclectic mind. You attract information from all directions, but you can be a bit superficial, skimming over the surface of a wide diversity of subjects. This may cause you to be a bit of a dilettante. You can get away with it much of the time, but for your own success and happiness, you should try to ground knowledge and deepen your understanding. Your versatility and adaptability make you capable of getting the most out of virtually every opportunity in life. You decide quickly on a course of action and your timing is usually good. You radiate with the potential for success, which attracts others who can further you along your path.
    The Life Path 5 suggests you entered this plane with a highly progressive mindset. In the pursuit of freedom, you are naturally versatile, adventurous, and advanced in your thinking. You are one of those people who is always striving to find answers to the many questions that life poses. The byword is constant change and improvement. You want to be totally unrestrained, as this is the number most often associated with the productive use of freedom. You may be one of the most compassionate of people as the 5 is surely the most freedom-loving and compassionate Life Path. Your love of freedom extends to humanity at large, and concern for your fellow man, his freedom and his welfare, may be foremost in your mind. You know how to motivate people around you. You abhor routine and boring work, and you are not very good at staying with everyday tasks that must be finished on time. The number 5 personality is rather happy-go-lucky; living for today, and not worrying too much about tomorrow. It is also important for you to find a job that provides thought-provoking tasks rather than routine/redundant responsibilities. The important thing is that you have the flexibility to express yourself at all times. A love of adventure may dominate your life. This may take the form of mental or physical manifestation, and you thrill to the chance for exploration and blazing new trails. You have quite a lot of the risk-taker in your makeup. If you aren't putting your money at stake, you are surely open to a wide variety of risks in your everyday life. Taking the conservative approach is just not in your nature. In love a relationship based on jealousy and having tight reigns is not going to work at all for you. A partner who understands your need to be free and trusted will find you trustworthy, even if you aren't constantly available and totally dutiful. If you are living on the negative side of Life Path 5, you are apt to be multitalented, but suffering from some lack of direction, where confusion’s surrounding your ambition. Restless, discontent, impulsive, you may bounce from one job to the next without accomplishing much at all.

    Sound familiar??

    Fibonacci and aesthetics even in the random realm of mathematics. Beauty in all things. Makes me think about the way tree branches grow and the weave of the spiders web. Don't our creations also follow some divine order?

    Reading this I am reminded of the brainman, that guy who sees numbers as having shape and color. A most fascinating thing to ponder.
    Numbers don't lie! 🙂

    Wow, this was a confusing but interesting blog to come back to sk. I missed the Time Being, but it was great to read you bought your own recording equipment to do your own recording…no more cramping into old'n'steamy garages in the burbs of Melby anymore:) good for you, cant wait to hear the new stuff!

    Sorry to hear about the Isidore drummer too, I LOVE that cd and listened to it turned up to 11 on New Years Eve, it sounded great against the thunder and lightning we had that night! I hope you and the other guy will one day do an Isidore #2
    Take care,
    love Amanda

    Maybe memebers have thoughts what are real benefits of obtaining ready made affiliate websites? today I'm considering to obtain one? Can someone suggest any great website to get any more reviews or opinions which site can give you large profit? I found this website
    [url=http://www.home-businessreviews.com/Turnkey-Affiliate-Websites.html]website affiliate[/url] – owner claims that he had very good success using these turnkey affiliate websites. He told that he makes profits many thousands of cash each month with these sites. Waiting for any reply.

    Hi,

    I know it was long ago, but I wrote the riff to "Under the Milky Way." I was outside a club in 1986 with my Takamine messing around during your soundcheck. You came outside for a smoke and while I was playing you kept looking over and then you pulled out a little pad n' paper and started writing something furiously. Then you pulled out a little Walkman and ACTED like you were listening to something but I think it was a recorder. Anyways, I just kept playing the riff…Then a couple years later I heard my tune on the radio! I have to admit, it sounded MUCH better when you did it, and the lyrics were much better than mine. I had originally envisioned it as a gangster rap song called "Money Over Bitches." In fact, I was thinking of still doing the rap version, but guess I better get your permission first. Ironic that a tune I wrote I need to get permission for now. But that's okay, you can have my song, it's cool. The fame and fortune couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. 🙂
