The basic vantage is this: "Different dimensional planes are constantly intersecting" might be one common way of explaining a certain advanced mode of
perception, and it and it's a close but not perfect analogy. I prefer to think of it as sheets or tides weaving in and out of each other. Bulging and
seething within themselves, and interacting with each other in the non-dimensional non-space (if that's really what it is...another adventure in
frontier-work for any of you out there who might be interested...) I think this goes on on the macro-verse level, something very much similar to the
visions of M-Theory
in some elusive way.
This manifests itself in our universe in many forms, on every level, of course, of course. How beautiful!
Interfaces. And now let us turn to interfaces! So much happens at interfaces! I sometimes wonder whether life and consciousness might not be most
effectively viewed from an interface-based vantage, approached as "interface phenomena." So majestic and and mysterious, interface phenomena are
simultaneously familiar and comfortable, yet new, always fresh, always revealing awe, never perfectly safe or predictable, skimming the raw-awe from
the cosmos and delivering it to you in facefulls, brainfulls. It doesn't moddy-coddle you, it slaps you in the face when you need it, I wanna be
where the interface is.
And yet interfaces can be manipulated. What is one can become two, what is two can become three, what is three can become many. One-Two-Three-Many.
And soon one descends again into the realm of the mundane. Bifucated, then trifrucated, trident-like. Split into separate areas and manipulated
endlessly, for whatever purpose or purposes.
Doctrines people place good faith in can be manipulated all out of their original contexts, for any variety of need. As power corrupts, the very
nobility and purity of the hearts of men and women drawn to those heights is turned on them and they become all the more razor-cold and effective at
implementing evil. They are prisoners to the awe they feel is a result of ego-work. It's such a stupid, honest mistake, but society has no vocabulary
for it so oop, there goes anyother one, off into that dark night -- every day -- even every hour --
They have forgotten to scrape awe raw from the main source! How tragic. Bearers of splintered, trifrucated minds. Doublethink? Ha! Try Triplethink!
Triplethink is the wave of the future!
The trident-weilder can become a cold splash-master among the intersecting waves. His sensitivity when young becomes all-the-more-callous in middle
age and old age, when he can move himself to rarified heights of abstraction within in his skull. Withdrawn dilute, remote. It's lonely there, if
safe. And no doubt very "interesting." The lives of millions, the great chessboard...not a single one of you who signed up to ATS hasn't felt the
allure of resting on lofty, amoral plateaus far removed....what must it be like to totally give into it? "Heavy lies the crown."
Do you know, on a bit of a tangent but not entirely unrelated...one of the most underreported yet absolutely cataclysmically destructive mental states
is? Its something very few people ever get to experience -- when you achieve everything you ever wanted and more, and you realize there is no "there"
there. It's soul- crushing, and humbling, and terrifying because you can never go back after seeing what that means. By never go back of course I mean
you will never be able to believe in any "ism" or any "system" or any grand and great ideal. Now locked shivering outside the warm gates of denial,
the choice of saint or madman, thief or sage is, as always, yours and yours alone.
But sickos have even more inputs and outputs, things you and I have never dreamed of.
Monstrosities can occur. Perversities. Occulsions. Trifrucations. We must save ourselves from this level and these snares.
But how can we do it when the most important part of us is locked away and shattered in different hermetic cells, different selves? How can we bring
them together to play happily with each other in the mind?
When can we go home? Let's go together
Don't be sad don't be afraid. You want to know something wonderful? You can go there right now without moving from your computer. You can be there
right now. You are there right now, if you want to be there. You don't have to do anything special, or even change the way you believe, or say the
magic words, or believe, or shead yourself of belief. None of that nonsense. Those old men had lots more time than Us. We can be there now, NATURALLY,
without changing ourselves. If we really want to.
I hope this helps somebody.
I'll be waiting for you. We all will. Come be with us. There is so much to see, learn, and do.
