TerenceMcKenna suggests that obsession w/ the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics & Entropy is very 19thCentury Mechanist
- & the evidence is actually that Universe creates ever more Novelty & Complexity (Evolution), in fact...
  Wed. 3/14/18 6:18pm Timeshift possibilitywaves:

all of the written ideas from last show were quite deep : ) thinking about the ever-repeating nature of everything and how to name creative realities.
  Wed. 3/14/18 6:19pm Timeshift possibilitywaves:

the ok/settling aspect about something that became recklessly and overintentionally theistic and plastic is that it can't not show...! and, also how the actual active existing healing energies of nature by these years have been understood to be as deeply purifying as the mysteries of ... mama ayahuasca and other earlier known surprising other dimensions of existence through similar lifeforms. (gratitude/awe/wordlessness/singing/everything) I do not know personally of this reality, but an amazing book is called the cosmic serpent.
  Wed. 3/14/18 6:19pm Timeshift possibilitywaves:

Yes: I love the idea of remembering that consciousness is "similar" to being a living planetarium (but much more supernatural) as a meditation that is difficult to forget.
  Wed. 3/14/18 6:20pm Timeshift possibilitywaves:

the nature of innovation shines in the art of your sound collage realities! innovation... of sound... i think 2014 is the year musicians/artists are going to figure out the non-currency related aspect of what is too heavy and distracting about music/art culture leading to inability to salve the copyright abrasions/cultural uncertainties. It just needs a good forum or a few as simple as the radiohead.com message board which i can't use personally as there are so many subcultures, but, i love the format's gentle simplicity!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/14/18 6:20pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Collage' has been coming up in more than one place...
  Wed. 3/14/18 6:20pm Timeshift possibilitywaves:

yes : ) this is my first time with a healthy and friendly winter tea of ghee, nutmeg, gingko, white and green tea leaves, tulsi, and kali : ) there is a lot left, it is maybe too thick to drink very fast : )
  Wed. 3/14/18 6:21pm Timeshift possibilitywaves:

the comic strip transformation day i remember from childhood are a model for how art can and will save itself : ) a lot of artists switched places and rewrote and redrew other strips. oh.. : ) maybe you remember it too, i'm not sure. it will not be as simple as that, but, media has to be toppled. i feel that most modern media that actually would not mind seeing human art consciousness go through new jumps and surprising changes would welcome a partially fake take down of art review and pandering practices in favor of seeing how much art could help life overall.

Philip Glass might be offended at how much dynamic flattening I had to do on these pieces today.

In fact since Man in Motion was so popular 4 years before Glass' piece, maybe it was an influence on him.
