Mirages Of Wisdom 0003

Extinction is our precluding not our concluding.

A shattered mirror can reflect light in unprecedented ways.

The fear of death kills you.

Too often we confuse our olders with our elders.

The clouds of heaven cast great shadows upon this Earth.

Over and under, because over and over is not working.

Phones are easy to program—humans are easier.

Only a diseased society would view the birth of a child as the end of the party and not its continuation.

Magic wears off because we don’t leave it naked.

You are always on the cusp of greatness because you are always on the edge of your real self. Just dive in.

Take the dive in to yourself because it’s difficult swimming on the rocky edge.

The punishment its the crime; the punishment is the crime.

We must wander or we will remain lost.

When life throws crazy shit at you, throw some crazier shit back.

Globalization or the Earth—you choose (which to care about).

Unfettered capitalists—not even fettered by capitalism.

Play your magic.

The very existence of mandatory schools for children is itself ageist segregation for the youngest people from actual connections to real power. Those with the most time left on this planet have the least say over how it is managed and run.

Mirages of Wisdom 0002

Magic wears off to those who overdress it.

Enslaved to remember while fire free to ember.

It’s the concrete not our neighbors that suffocate us.

Legacy is how the past comes to continuously oppress the present.

This for wayward.

If you try over and over you will keep failing, so try over and under.

Try under and over, because over and over is not working.

What we need are sprinters, for our race is almost at an end.

The completely oppressed do not feel alienation because they have had the ability to feel driven out of them.

We will catch up when we slow down.

You are the only one who uncrosses my mind.

Money has taken us all hostage, but the price for our ransom is extremely low. And we can afford to not pay.

If only traditions would remain in the confines of the casket.

If you are not there to whisper in my ear why I am alive, I need the music to shout in my ear why I need to survive.

It is more important to know that the government lies, than the government’s lies.

The Universe is impossible, and I love it here.

If your mouth can’t speak your stomach can’t swallow.

The path is clear—don’t clear a path.

The dig for reality is its burial. #fuckscience

The trippiest thing about reality is that it’s real.

Death ends life, but the fear of death ends living. Don’t let them hold that fear over you. Death is a wall you will come up against one day, but the fear of death is four walls that won’t let you escape alive.

When beauty dies, suicide becomes less of an option and more of a mandate.

 

 

We would see the destruction in our environment were it not for the destruction in our minds.

Political correctness and prison cells share more than just the same acronym.

When things are looking up, you don’t notice all the dead bodies sprawled on the ground.

All humans speak is gibberish and the only difference is we can understand some of it.

Silence says so much without the insult of words.

Speak the energy untold. Liberate the energy which haunts us, and in so doing find by that our own energy uncaged, for it was tied in that very fabric.

After the government kills me, then I will mistrust them. The ironic fist.

Globalization is the desiccating wind that dries us of our Humanity. If we don’t live locally we simply will not live. Don’t let the inertia of a few generations fool you that this shit will last.

The dehumanizer always begins with himself.

Math can go to hell, it’s our choice if we follow it there.

Any Revolution that happens in a city will only be a change of the Guard, not the needed change of the garden.

Long days and longer shadows.

I am always rising—a natural enemy to gravity.

 

It is the poet’s job to write the wrong words out of existence.

 

 

Magic comes from the wandering not from the wand.

It will also have to be revolutionary to the revolutionaries.

The wings of a bird are flipped when the flock flees from winter.

Master your freedom or you will remain your own slave. Breaking the chains of your mind will not be your splintering but your unification.

Force or source, such are your energy options.

If you find yourself in a life that is throwing your curve balls, remember that baseball is a stupid fucking sport that you don’t have to waste your time on anyways.

 

Wisdom and Mirages 0001

Walls are the doors we must walk through.

Start by continuing, not by starting.

The only way for my enemies to move up in the world is from the ground to the table.

Nationalism is narcissism without the mirrors.

Doves don’t want to offend hawks, and so they offend themselves.

Marathons and wisdom end at Athens.

Decimation is an understatement by a factor of ten of what we are doing to the planet.

There is no time unlike the present. It is all we have. It is all we need.

You don’t have to have a good idea to quit the rat race—quitting the rat race is the good idea.

If fires get old they weren’t fires.

Nothing is foundational—not even nothing.

Money is dried up the moment it’s created.

There’s no body but skeletons to blame.

Contextual memory seems out of context in the repetitive monotony of advanced civilization.

There are millions of fish in the sea, and to know the deepest ones is worth drowning in the darkness. And others aren’t worth wading a moment for.

The for wayward.

The universe is forgiving and forgetting itself as it grows. #eternaldifference

To grip your own freedom makes the tightest fist, for it didn’t exist beforehand.

 

Most use their hammer to chisel away at their own freedom rather than swing it at those that would accelerate its erosion.

Dying is the opposite of life, not death.

Permaculture is the reinstitution of institutionless difference.

If threats against you are able then to make you a threat against others, then you are a pawn made to support the hierarchy of enslavement.

The dark neither burns, nor pales us—leave that to the shadows.

The biggest disease we brought here was ourselves.

Claim your life as your own. It’s a hard fight, the fight of your life really–but you are worth it.

Walk in to the Atacama alive, and you may walk out with your life…

The bathwater has to be thrown out before it drowns the baby.

Your parents conceive you, but you give birth to you.

Go through their doors or go through their walls.

There are better ways than being kicked in the balls to be reminded that you have them.

Bite your tongue enough and your mouth can’t speak and your stomach can’t swallow.

Walls are the first and longest lasting siege.

If it’s truly your freedom than how could another have it to keep or distribute?

They are too well guarded, and we are too well hidden; and so the dance continues.

You move me so, and so I stay.

We can starve ourselves all we want, but until we feed ourselves our movements can only be reactive and not proactive. #permaculture

King is only an echo without a source.

We that show up, show on.

C is for Collapsing: My Thoughts Iñexactly

The proof that the 60s were not that radical is that the 70s 80s and 90s followed them.

I cried a lot when I learned of his death. I cried a lot more when I learned of his life.

From which direction are the gateways guarding?

Humans went extinct long ago, it’s just that their disease lingers to torment other species.

Roll with the punches? How about throw some punches and watch the already lifeless roll over.

It’s the machines of the dead that haunt us not their spirits.

We don’t stand a chance if we don’t stand.

The flaw with every great individual is that there is only one of them.

Rabid individualism destroys the world—one person at a time.

Do we really think we can suffocate the Earth and not be suffocating ourselves?

If you are scared of what they will do to us when we strike, just imagine what they will do to us when they strike.

Break the rules so they don’t exist anymore.

I will believe the conspiracies after they kill me.

European colonialism is nothing more than the search outward for new victims.

Time destroys coliseums when it should be gladiators.

Cars are going to hell either way, it’s our choice whether or not we stay along for the ride.

In this time of greatest dissonance the truth rings the most, but it does not ring true.

Capitalism is to get nothing for something.

There’s no body to blame, just the skeletons.

I have sex with ideas, and you would be hard put to call the outcome a reproduction.

Those who don’t understand there is a war are usually already kneeling.

If you dropped the y it would be ours already.

Unmake America and gain.

A symptom will kill us, but the disease had us dead long ago.

There being nothing to hear is scarier than the deafness.

Nascar is an instance of humans gathering around to watch the death of the planet rather than the death of gladiators.

Unfortunately the faults in the system don’t break the system, only the systematized.

If they sweat enough you will stop seeing Che on their shirts and start seeing Che on their faces.

Who have we been turned into?

To only the whole Earth does the full moon let itself be captured.

Most are blind to the artificial background that structures the oppression we feel, and in our blindness we have nobody left to blame but one another. We do not understand the war made upon us, yet we cannot negate the effects it has on us, and so we retaliate and amplify the role of our fellow victims in our own injuries, and in so doing amplify their injuries. We are in the pressure chamber, it is up to us whether or not we remove the walls or allow them.

If you throw yourself completely Into the web of life, death will have a hard time untangling you.

Walls just echo in diminished form what they hear, for they offer no difference. Do not be a wall–dance the music that hits and penetrates you, honoring the music by extending it in to the unknown.

The sun sees for us, and we see for the moon.

Humans-a species that rushes through life to get to its death.

No people will survive long without 7 generations. A people is hard put to survive while missing 1 generation. You can be on team 7 generations or on team extinction. But if you choose the latter, you will come to have no team, just meat.

The only thing worse than group think is individual think.

The solstice is not just a specific time it’s a specific place. And at this center shadows don’t exist and yet shadow energy exists the stronger.

Dialectics is meaningless to the dead.

And that’s why it’s a war.

Capitalism is to get nothing for something.

Iñexactly.

If your quote’s too long
It better be a song
And if it’s not…
Sing its memory so long

Ñ is for Ñthing Ñew: My Thoughts Iñexactly

I will not stop moving, but you may stop stopping.

The magic is in the wandering not the wand.

If there were no chance of finding you in a dream, I would not let sleep find me.

It is hard to die for you when you don’t live for you.

If it only requires partial attention it doesn’t deserve any attention.

The unspoken is free from the insult of words.

How great is your god if he built a hell with which to threaten us?

The world is never too small for us—but it’s quite possible in thinking such that we’ve become too small for the world.

As the muscles fade, the real strength will become evident.

Perfection does not exist, yet you are proof that its opposite does not either.

Language is your jail cell, and literacy is the key to lock you in.

If you think there’s a re in wanderer then you’re going backwards.

It’s true that most people don’t just roll over and die, but many roll over and call it living.

We are all born with a disability called civilization. It mars us quickly even while in the womb—with the exposure to unresolvable stress, toxins, and impoverished relationships.

We can populate the world with weapons or with people. The temporary surge of both will not last. And then weapons and people will lie limp.

Power is its own adjective.

Better to force them to throw you off a cliff then to let them lead you off one.

Do not tempt nothingness to leave its confines as a concept.

Believing expands that which is believed in.

Deciding to live in a metropolis is putting all your eggs in the basket with the most eggs in it.

Some diseases make life tedious, while others make it perilous. Civilization does both.

Love is the potion that drinks us.

Love reads us without rewriting. Love drinks us even if we taste bad.

The inventiveness of humans gets in the way of the inventiveness of evolution. We must realize we are the disease if we hope to be part of the cure.

The drinking glass is the symbol of drifting too far from water. The plastic bottle speaks volumes more than it can hold.

They tried to cut us down, they forgot we were rhizomes.

Those who flock and nest in such a place reveal what they truly are.

There will always be an open niche on difference. If you have trouble finding one, find Nietzsche.

Is your resistance to support the offended or the oppressed?

A preoccupation with someone having your back before you act is the very reason you have no spine.

Yesterday and tomorrow are different distractions with the same result.

You can not move too far. You can only stay too far, just as you can stay too close.

The only eyes on you are the eyes that never see you.

A group without a famous individual is a trusted caretaker of humanity.

The only heaven is on Earth, and slaves lose their piece by their inaction, while masters break it to pieces by their very actions.

I find my short attention span boring, so I then keep re-finding it.

You can’t dilute life with water.

Slaves play god by handing life to another.

Tomorrows will keep running away scared by a today that places too much burden on them.

God is bound in a book you present to me. Are you not the victorious devil?

War is a riddle that has no answers, only silence. Only silence suffices and only silence will be suffered.

Should we call it an island if it’s surrounded by concrete on all sides? Dislandese? I would put a curse on that forsaken land for all the harm it causes, but it is already a curse unto itself.

Schizophrenia is a nomad that can’t move.

Concern yourself with things that grow and the mirror will do the same.

If I leave the people alone, then I will be.

You are only fully alive when you can no longer awaken from your dreams.

To wait is to destroy.

Couchsurfers aren’t complete wastes of space—when we visit you we ensure your suburban house is not a complete waste of space.

Nothing is written… that cannot be erased.

Civilization is paralysis spread across a species.

The thread with which you weave ties to the past and future is cut from the sinews of the present. Unwrapping the gift is its unraveling.

Stagnant defense is an offense.

If civilization was so great why do so many more die from it than for it?

Dreams are the only things that keep us from sleepiness.

Spring requires no winter to precede it.

If Marat’s baths were a little bit warmer, would he have been so vengeful? A Marat in the sewers…

It is still much better to be born into peace than into the defined winning side of a war. Such is the plight of white people. We get to continue because we haven’t been killed off yet. But our inner vacuousness keeps us the farthest from peace.

Dancing is how we deal with the movement civilization has robbed of us.

I hear about human rights but I feel around me there are fewer and fewer humans.

It’s not a problem of being myself, it’s which self to be…

 

My Thoughts Inexactly: I is for Initiating

For some it is not too late nor too early. For some it is right on time, and so comes their fear.

The oppressed have a hand in their own oppression, if not a fist.

You are the mirror I look in to where nothing is backwards.

All that time spent reflecting, and everything else appears backwards.

Scarcely can ever something inside a book prepare you for something outside of a book.

There are millions of fish in the sea, and to know the deepest ones is worth drowning in the darkness.

We are the disease that has many fingers but few eyes with which to see.

Most things are waiting for you to happen.

Globalization is the creation of distance where it previously did not exist. Waiting and impatience are a product of this new age of nearsightedness.

They are not aliens, they are earthlings we fail to connect to anymore.

If you are forced, you are not you.

When the world is unknown, the world will know peace. We must make the long journey back to localism.

To live in the shadows you must be kneeling under those who are lesser than you. For only lesser things absorb light without amplifying it.

Close family is a foreign concept.

Lay down the law and leave it to die.

Only the wise know to learn from the young.

Corporations flourish alongside corpses.

In the end we are all dead—but we are not stuck in the end. We are all placed in the middle, where we have much to do and even more not to do.

You only have to fear the spiders if you make yourself an insect.

If you really didn’t care you wouldn’t need to vocalize it.

Water your dreams, and you will find others searching for your fertility while you are awake. #wetdreams

Atención es intención.

We are not a terribly revolutionary people—all the more reason we are in terrible need of a revolution.

Hate cuts deep and love grows deep.

Your way of life is your children’s way of death.

Light is hidden by the brightness.

Our ways are more foreign to this planet than any so-named alien peoples could be.

Death is immortal. Near death and nearer to life.

It is the panopticon in reverse—all eyes on the one screen.

To follow orders in a wisdom-less age is not only bad faith, it is highly dangerous.

The weak prey on the weak, the strong need only pray. They need not pray, for it would just be an echo as gods dwell within them.

The deserts of their eyes resemble the deserts of their lands…

My Thoughts Inexactly: Z is for Zeroing (2018 Remix)

It is not enough to only lose your own chains, for if your comrades don’t lose theirs you are sure to keep tripping over them.

The only thing worse than a single leader is a single enemy.

From hand in hand to device in hand. Alienation has become very human.

Maturity is reached when the desire to go back in time ceases. Maturity is not fixed nor one way, as made plain by the aged. We immature as often as we mature. Civilization tends to invert the direction of maturity—one of the great many inversions.

Money is how the past comes to control the present. Inheritance of such control is not a present, but a curse.

If you are only interested in maximizing your existence in this world, then you are fortunate for your interests match the reality.

Those who commit themselves to total war are usually the first casualty.

Doing nothing is death.

You will never be the same, as you never were the same.

Attention is intention.

We rise to the occasion, not because of what we are, but because of the occasion life is.

Better a mistake of words than a mistake of weapons.

The Universe is not built out of particles, it is built in to them.

The zeroth dimension endures all different spaces. It is everywhere without running through anything.

The universe speaks to itself–keep listening.

The olders are not our elders, they are our enemies. They didn’t plant seeds for us, they chose to plant concrete instead. Fuck them.

The disease that has many fingers but few eyes.

Man-aged or man-lived. We must choose wisely, for ourselves and for our future!

Polyamory, because then everybody’s doing it.

Instead of cars that drive themselves, what about people that walk themselves?

I’d prefer a forest to an aphorist, but since I am not even grown to the depth of a single tree, I must choose the latter to taste such heights.

Parts are important enough to stop regarding them as mere parts.

If it isn’t visceral enough it isn’t real enough. Too regularly the artificial layers acting as a protective glove will suffocate the naked hands of we the primary creators.

Tribes raise children, parents raise hell raisers. How to climb back up to Earth and its tribes?

An hour long lecture from the ocean has greater value than a two semester seminar at the likes of a Harvard or Cambridge.

You are the flower.

If you won’t be with the whole, you’ll be apart, leaving a hole behind.

It is not the problem of being too introverted or too extroverted—it is the sitting on the wall that we built between the two, stagnant and unmoved by either… diverted.

They ask me why I travel to places where I don’t know anyone, and I respond that it’s no different than here, for they don’t know me.

Writing feels terribly futile, probably because it is!

Civilization doesn’t provide us the luxury of time for rumination, it provides us a plethora of lonely spaces that we can only fill with melancholic rumination.

The one and lonly.

Solstice (my feelings in exactness)

Rise each day, for the sun is in you; sleep each night, for you are its dream.

When things are looking wrong, start looking Ra.

Worship the sun—worship that which worships you.

Don’t be a Goddamn animal, be a Goddamning one.

Solstice is the longest day of our year—it should be no surprise that it can sometimes emerge as the longest day of y-our life.

The omnipresent doesn’t need to be written about in a book or feared to be forgotten.

Most things are waiting for you to happen. There is only yourself in the way from being a prime mover.

What gives you fire will never burn you. Unless you get selfish.

There is no deeper a shadow than the one you cast upon yourself.

Ceilings and walls are a sin against the sun. Not wise to estrange a most steadfast friend. One that moves through the sky to keep our shadows off-balance.

Whatever shadows hide before and within all of us, every single one of us is a descendant of lovers.

The sun is giving the Earth 10 billion years; let’s not waste a single moment more!

Down here at the edge of the tropics, I can joyously make rhymes with Feyerabend and declare: a farewell to season!

Esoterical continental philosophers, you spelled it wrong—it’s called lterity.

Peace when faced with death, anger when faced with dying. This is a time for anger.

A casket is the signature in gaudy cursive of a selfish life.

Civilization is the long slow war of attrition against ourselves.

A preoccupation with the future is always too early.

If you eat meat you kill an animal, if you eat pasta you kill yourself. Live in the tropics and be a frugivore.

Europeans have never learned to survive in the Americas, they’ve just been dying a slow 550-year death bringing down every other species possible in their descent.

You would have to be sliced so thin to be spread across the infinite; be thankful you are the complex wedded to mortality.

If love does not come naturally, it is not natural.

The oppressors speak lies to protect all they have stolen, the oppressed speak the truth because it’s all they have left.

We can’t use cannot.

Love is the only justice that prevents crimes from ever happening.

A spirituality and religion of this reality is so powerful that it doesn’t need to be translated into a book.

Delusions of grandeur make one stand out, but delusions of minimisation keep the rest of us sitting down. Herein sits our deepest problem.

There doesn’t need to be a puppeteer for capitalism to make a puppet out of you.

If this war is far from over, then humans are not far from over.

If you let the government lead the way you won’t like the destination.

It doesn’t have to be a sinking ship—there are plenty of floating graveyards that nobody realized they should have left until the waves of karma had drowned them.

As I spiral in to existence, presented as I am becoming, death no nearer than the ends of the Universe. Past and future be damned and alienated to keep to themselves, for I am now here to hold and let go the gift of my life.

Maybe the carrot stick sweetens as you chase after it, but you begin to rot along with the countless other things you unwittingly trample as you accelerate your hunger.

I’m here to live and die, I’m not here for the elongated dying part. Civilization can keep that to itself.

Resist the temptation to articulate the brilliance of hell, for the shards you usher in to existence in so doing cut away your essence.

We don’t call the most inimical, insidious, long standing forces that govern every little thing about us, right down to the words we think and clutter our thoughts as language, government—we call them tradition. Traditions are the power we let the dead have over us, because we are too unaware to shake off the skeleton. The dead governing the living sounds like a horror movie, and yet this one that is our reality we can too turn off. Many focus on what living humans do to govern us, to the great loss of insight and imagination of the true liberation from governance of tradition. We mistake the skeletons grip for comfort and reassurance.

Grow up and build some deep roots in the places that are friendly, for that is what roots do.

Making it up as you go along… is called being human. Plan ahead… is called psychotic, or worse yet, extinction.

A leader has and only needs herself as a follower, whereas a dictator

Are you karma? Cuz you are a bitch.

Life—keep it complex. (and don’t simplify it with complications)

Your existence will never be articulated. Your suffering will never be understood by others in a recognizable manner produced by civilization. There are way too many victims standing in line to have their suffering spoken to, but of course the waiting is only adding to their cumulative victimage, this time by themselves. The real solution is not to be preoccupied with being heard and with the recognition of others that you barely know—success in this regard is limited and blinds the world to other injustices. The real revenge is to not seek any but to be free of the past and not honor the grave weaknesses of our many ancestors that sought to be ensconced in our present world through deadly and enervating traditions. Seeking to be a known victim is overlooking your self-victimization.

K is for Not Knowing (my thoughts inexactly)

It is the full plate that keeps one insatiably hungry.

Machines don’t get turned on by humans, but machines get turned on by humans. Why continue to create and give form to that which is in its very embodiment anti-sexual and anti-vital?

Our energy can animate our machines or it can animate our bodies. The choice of energy is currently ours, but it may become the choice of machines.

Bullshit is fine—it’s machine shit that is going to kill us.

There are no perfect persons, only imperfect policies. People together perfect one another, and preclude the need for policies.

A series of false false flags does much service to obscure real false flags.

If you see the world as governed by their rules, then you have already lost.

If you eat winter food all year round, you’re going to look and feel like winter.

The choice is yours—you can change sides in this war against the world and choose to defend the Earth.

We have lost ourselves by such vast distances that no plain use of vision could lead us back to the lost world; we must blind ourselves and listen for the deep echoes from the past—echoes unmediated by artifice.

Whoever draws first blood will write the story with their own.

Some books are burned and people protest; protesters are burned and books forget them.

The media can only exist in a lost localism—a vacuum that is euphemistically referred to as globalization. You need not be a victim to media saturation because you can separate yourself from the separation, and unite with your immediacy.

If we do not wander, we will remain lost.

The route to lowering carbon is not going to be done through Western argumentation or policy, for that in itself is what got us to this very precarious situation that evades the narrow western lens that can only see “carbon”. Rather, what is needed to solve the beyond-carbon-problem is for traditional indigenous land relationships to be adopted—despite any skepticism that a stupifying western science might engineer—that will cycle carbon and other industrially misapprehended elements back in to reemerging ecosystems.

For every tower of knowledge, the shadows cast are far darker than any illumination. So vastly obscuring is knowledge that our eyes forget that they are blinded.

Leave it to words to give the lengthy signifier to immediate. Only logic would breed the peculiar notion that combining something with its reversal could equal its annihilation. I.e. Writing “immediate” is to write an oxymoron.

Publish mediately?
