in the whirling dark

the created world hewn from nothingness

planet from the rib of star

sun a spark of god

the seeming fertile within the fire

the jumpabout metallurgy  of  law of attractions

that was true but it isnt anymore

yes the truth has been bent its been sent to perplex us

doesnt seem to be just one thing

i mean what would i know what i mean

falling backwards out of a dream

immunity wishes granted

the earth is a great idea actualised

oh yes well done

the steppes the plains the wild antelopes and mountain lions

the rivers the banks the clouds the golden carp

it all came out of nowhere apparently

god out of the machine

a series of parallels

in this world we’re happy

in that world we come apart

stress screams in machine language

the bridges groan

the engines whine

the concrete whispers

the steel works

ying yawns

yang bangs

the great aegyptian age begins shortly

the ritual sacrifice the virtual artifice

ra in lambent glory

baby can you dig this crazy cosmology

pyramid amid the valley of the kings

nefertiti into confetti as she wed sun and sat

a serpent cracks this globe

we probe the extremes of thebes and capri

imagine nero stabbed and arrowed

the empress murdered in her dreams

the barges sail up the tigris

the sailboats up the euphrates

the blue crane wheels overhead like some angel

the reeds rub together in the wind creating music

the strings vibrate in harmony the coincidence not unnoticed

the orbits are effortless

the creatures all rise and fall

the moon pulls upon the sea

the sea laps the lands limbs

the land has landed in a field

the field has fielded the following flowers

foxglove forget me not  mandrake root n angelfruit

the residue is almost undetectable

the denial

    the breeze was swift
    and clean
    the birth was distant
    if from a dream
    the men stood proudly
    at the cliffs edge
    the newborn child
    demanded a sacrifice
    from all of man
    they fell one by one
    into the sea
    the child smiled
    as a woman carried her
    off gentlely.

    d’ya think the god/gods ever meant for us to figure his/their shit out?
    this is a serious question i’m levelling at ya here my friend.
    i really would like your views on this one.
    are we meant to unravel and discover or just ‘let it be’ and enjoy the wonderment of it all?

    lovely writings today boss………..

        nice answer steve,
        unusual for you to take the middle ground,but i guess that’s a very
        well reasoned stance in this instance.
        a very modernist take on things too….
        made me re-think my model of it all a little!

        thanks fer taking time-out to reply sagely one.

        I feel the same, and that the whole of creation exists so that we might awaken and that at the end of our life its the only thing that really mattered. (imho)

    Mr. Kilbey, I must say, you are a true poet. “can you dig this crazy cosmology?”

    Many multi-hued heads? You must have become a Plant Man. A Manly Drake, a Foxy Glove, and definitely Not Forgettable. Not so sure about the Angel’s Fruit, though. 😉

    My favorite line from this one: “The truth has been bent; it has been sent to perplex us.” How true indeed. Of course one mustn’t lose any sleep over finding the answers for you’ll never sleep.

    yeah I agree. We are meant to Unravel. To “tear it all away”. I just found this book called “The Secret life of plants”. Not sure if I posted that link before. It is a bit slow at first. Stick with it up until the experiments with the plants.

    “stress screams in machine language”…Very vivid description…And chilling, as I’m sure it was intended.

    Why does humanity feel a constant urge to “improve” on God’s masterpiece, when clearly we’re incapable of doing so without destroying it in the process?

    Just finished watching the interview S.K did with Anton. …I have had “epiphanies” in my life, but never did try MDMT or any thing like that . So I never have experienced an “Epiphamy” Must be from the “M” in the MDMT. The stuff about The Beetles was simply astounding to me. I have everything on vinyl by them and transfer it to Hi Res digital. I know every song in my head. Read tons about them when I was younger. .I collected all the obscure Sike bands around that time. American and British(Pretty things, Zombies, Kinks, Tomorrow,The Move, Love, you name it). The Beetles smoke them all ! There was no better band period. Just Like God created Bach to place the High water mark for the Baroque, She created the Beatles to do the same thing with Rock/Pop music. I could go into the whole Nihilistic “feed the wasteland and get paid” motivation behind such a statement, but why bother. I take exception to what S.K said about the surf in SOCAl though. I grew up in San Clemente near Trestles. Best surf in the US. Newport is Shiite !

    Not relevant to today’s blog, but hallelujah for Isidore. That CD is totally salvaging my mood as I sit here marking a big stack of boring exams. Could listen to Sanskrit for an eternity.

    Digged the shots! What technology can do never ceases to amaze me.
    Really liked those words,very strong imagery.
    Don’t know about falling backward out of a dream, wish I could scream when I try to.

    Enjoyed a short break in Canberra. Floriade was beautiful,the person who works out the displays has a good mind too. Lots more things there for children this year. Flowers are wonderful for the soul. Good news that the Stromblo Observatroy has been rebuilt with help from Nasa after the fire. Think of u living there. Love visiting, it’s such a good place to unwind.
    Hope u are having a good weekend.

    Peace & love

    I think there must be sparks flying from your brain.
    Your words gallop across the screen, sure footed and balanced. Entertaining, thought provoking, inspiring. Gotta love it.

    Things that seem mundane one day seem woundrously mysterious the next.
    I look at a great, giant magnificent tree and the small patch of ground upon which it is rooted. It started as a seed, then a small sapling, and now has become many tons of dense wood towering over a hundred feet into the sky with a sprawling canopy of branches and leaves. How did all of this materialize? From bits of minerals in the soil, rain, and sunlight? Where did it all come from? We could cut it down and build a house, and another equally massive tree could grow in its place. So reality – hard, palpable material reality — can be created from virtually nothing…

    Cliches are repeated until we think they are truth. Live in the present. Ha. Right. Except there appears to be no present, just the future that incessantly bombards us like a hurricane. The microsecond we become aware of the “present”, it has already passed. Our lives, bravely or not, cut through the onslaught like the sharp bow of a ship slicing through the waves, leaving behind a foaming wake. And the slightest change of direction implies a whole different outcome of events.

    So can we change reality with our thoughts? Such an intoxifying concept, just as I was getting comfortable with the Eastern philosophy that accepting we have no control is the ultimate power?

    I know we do emit some sort of “radiation” with thoughts and emotions, and that can effect others’ thoughts and emotions. Getting a handle on that is another matter. And how do we deal with the radiation of seven billion other-people’s brains affecting ours?

    Which brings us back to gotta get disciplined about meditating, hone my mind into a laser-sharp beam. I actually did do that for about a month, then got sidetracked again. Must say there is quite a nice little high to be had there, at any rate.

    Enough babbling.

    whatever Great Scheme there is, sometimes i wonder what the point is of all of the suffering around me, but then it is leavened with the profound beauty of seemingly random and off-hand occurrences….the gods create a paradox that a merely mortal mind cannot grasp……

    love always…..

    Krav Magaw is the best stuff to deal with any “Violent attack”. Even guns. Also good for conditioning. Anyways. Cocoamo, that was a thoughtful post:”I know we do emit some sort of “radiation” with thoughts and emotions, and that can effect others’ thoughts and emotions. Getting a handle on that is another matter. And how do we deal with the radiation of seven billion other-people’s brains affecting ours?” If you looked at that link I posted on the Secret Lives of plants and watched that amazing video, and considering your question, what kind of affect do you think all these Abattoirs around the world have on the ripples of consciousness emanating around this planet ? Add Alcohol and idiotic heavy drugs(Legal or illegal), and here we are. I became vegetarian in 1989 after I had a dream that I was a cow in this long line waiting to be turned into a Happy Meal.
