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.

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

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.

D is for Deepending

Start thinking of this as all of our land, or it will soon be realized as all of our graveyard.

The difference between pettiness and localism is so profound that globalization stands in between them.

If more of the world was like you, there would be more of the world.

Love takes two—and makes them one.

A warrior allows blood on his hands to defend the blood in his veins; a fascist allows blood on his hands because he has no blood in his veins.

We don’t really know how to live on the land if we have to kill it first.

Laughing at death is the humor that is found by we who cry at life.

Before you opened your mouth, everything you said was perfect.

If you do not wander, you will remain lost.

If losing you is part of the journey, then I would rather lose the journey.

The ball is always in your court, and your court is much wider than they would tell you.

Whenever you are, time makes it so that you were.

Artist do not fall into poverty, they choose to not live the impoverished life of possessing.

Sheep need weapons, lions need only roar.

The city got nicer and nicer the farther away from it I moved.

One too wedded to their ideas must ask what they have divorced from.

It’s not condescending, I’m speaking as I would have ever; you just happened to have lowered yourself.

Of course death can be beat indefinitely—it’s called birth. Immortality doesn’t beat death, immortality beats life. Death makes it so that we do not stagnate in immortality.

Stare in to the abyss, and watch the abyss run away scared.

The beauty of a hug has not been outdone by art or philosophy, but it is being undone by a cold society that embraces science.

Humans are one of the few animals in this zoo that are not given the compliment of a cage. They can be shown images to create docility that other animals would rage at.

If death were to leave us we would be on the ground begging for life to leave us, too.

The walls are not stagnant even if those inside them are.

You know intention has died when you are at the doorstep of the random.

Become a fascist and destroy humans, or become a human and destroy fascism.

Laws are the theft of justice from the human animal in which it intrinsically dwells.

Do not envy the eagles for the they must always look down; envy your future self, for that is to be freer and more beautiful than you.

Children are easy to scare because they have wild imaginations; adults are easy to scare because they have no imaginations.

D is Dumpstering…

X is for Xotic (My Thoughts Inexactly)

Your beauty is such that my eyes feel you and my skin sees you.

Sex is the agony of being in two bodies.

Swallow pure difference, and it is you who are digested.

We make history, or we will be deleted from it.

The robots wrapped in human skin will be envied by the human robots who have forsaken their skin.

Do not be so swift to make smoothness and conformity a highest goal. Smooth is a tombstone, yet engraved in it is a time of death.

The supreme trance artist is as a perfect lover, knowing exactly when and how to change intensity and rhythm to heighten the harmonization.

1 body in to 1,000,000 bodies in, the zeroes start to blur and are thus forgotten.

Love is to be the fire for something beyond yourself—if you keep it inside, you will burn.

X is for X10ding, and X-10-CIV is not only 94, and X is four. Choices are boundless, but binds are ever a choice. We only remain in the shadow of the Romans if we remain bent over their traditions.

 

B is for Breathing (My Thoughts Inexactly)

If you merely become the inversion of what you oppose, every other day you will find yourself in a battle with yesterday and tomorrow.

Magic understood is magic misunderstood.

Both evolution and revolution require that we be naked. To build up to the real revolution we need an undress rehearsal.

Compounding disinterest—we are disinterested in our very disinterest.

If you could but taste the dreams on which we chew, you would discover how hungry you are.

An education that liberates the mind but confines the body is the miseducation that one ought not long for.

It is said that it is better to have loved and lost then to have never loved at all, but to keep loving and losing and loving and losing—such pain can only be the result of our globalized world.

A war of many enemies hidden even from the enemies.

Being in an ecosystem we need each other, and when one of us goes missing we truly realize we need EACH other.

Under the state, hell can feel but an understatement. The great tease and misuse of the word freedom that one in a cage must endure…

To not salivate in the mouths of others is tasteless.

A domesticated animal is not afforded the luxury of having a will. It must overcome the paradox and find the will to find a will. If not, it’s will is written by another, for another.

Instead of lobbying them with money and energy, let’s lobby ourselves with food for energy; we will then find our need of them unfounded.

And now the wretched is the Earth.

An ideology that keeps you away from others is an ideology to keep away from.

I was born a libertarian socialist without having the words for it, and hopefully I might die a libertarian socialist without needing the words for it.

If you hide your true self in fear of being disappeared, such is your fate.

Permission is a taxing load that more often than not sinks a mission.

A disease thrives the most right before it dies along with its host. Don’t let the demographer fool you with a misleading charting of the future.

I appreciate your solutions, but there is no problem here. Perhaps the problem is in your mind.

Words that are hard to come by are words not easily forgotten.

Focus on solutions, and the problems will lose focus on you.

Without its own food, your movement will cease to move.

Every time I see a fashion model walking my way, I walk to runaway.

Run too fast and you make yourself the hunted.

There is nothing as outlandish as… a modern human!

Hell is the vacillation between boredom and malevolence. It matters not if one is the subjector or subjected.

Wear the 50,000 year lens—see the roots of oppression and not just the base of its recent branches and outgrowths.

When you dance with the devil, you dance alone.

It took the Romans over a century to realize they had killed a god; I ask how long will it take for us to realize we are killing ourselves?

Everlasting life won’t save you from your fears. You will just move from being mortally afraid of death to immortally afraid of death.

The proof that the old are useless, is that the young are useless. Wisdom has vanished, and all time has given is a wrinkle.

The better you chew your food, the more it will stay your food.

Your words tell us we are invisible but the music tells us we are invincible; the choice is easy.

Oh how different naked and empty are.

To move unopposed is not a movement.

Either the youth conquer, or death conquers—for that is what the undying aged have made themselves.

To share yourself is to leave yourself.

Only one side can triump—the other side is the lack of triump, and brings death.

“and down into the Land of Shadow”
