Yes






Thank you, Tony

My poetry students have composed letters to the wind which were forwarded to the Himalayas and letters to fire which were dropped into Hawaiian volcanic flow. We are searching for a deepsea snorkler to deliver their letters to water.

Thanks for the savory photons, Bill and Harley. How timely! Harley's been telling me about the sacred history of bladewalking, a spinning sword wheel and Buddha birth! Since the 1950's, more than 200 smaller particles have been discovered inside the atom. Could hexagrams reflect the particle/wave dance of hadrons and leptons?

Me, too. So does the little piece of the hologram that contains the whole thang. Are we really little pieces of the sun, then?

HOORAY!

Almost time to pay ellipses service to and switch on the Joyce filter dream generator.

The fal reader is returning for our new class cycle. She will awaken the honey that sleeps in bees.

I was lurking in the storage areas of an excellent anthropology museum yesterday, photographing some intruiging old relics.

The curator was telling me about a system, where a turtle shell was placed in fire. When the plectrum cracked, it was read as an oracle. It was also possible to gaff the shell, so that it would crack in the way the shaman wanted.

I knew about the shells...

I didn't know they could be gaffed.

In China, centuries of carefully maintained records of occular consultations inscribed on the cracked shells were later excavated, mortared and pestled, packaged, sold and injested as panacean dragon powder at such a costly price.

Ah yes! Religion, political gain, and profit, all in the same shell! Somehow that sounds familiar...

In Zargon, Laconia (where my former inner beings hail from) as well as here in the Great American Midwest, clever rings of thieves have been stealing cataclysmic converters from recreational vehicles (easier because they are higher off the ground) to leach precious ceramic insular elements therein.

The fal reader visited last week and we had the last oracular class until fall. After preparing, brewing, serving coffees, she instructed how to set cups and saucers for her divinations. She "went into her zone" and "read" nine or ten images of meaningful imminence for each sitter. I think it neeedless to try and empirically pin down acausal transcendental functions occuring within the human psyche. How can we possibly quantatatively measure how numinosity may or may not manifest through weaving disparate images into spontaneous, cohesive narratives as she and the other mediums do?

I have learned that certain events of the outer world may be manipulated to predict psychic facts. As the fal reader says, "Don't believe it. Don't be without it."

Two books I do believe and wouldn't want to be without for a deeper understanding of oracular systems, archetypal psychology, eastern wisdom and quantum physics are:

ON DIVINATION & SYNCHRONICITY (The Psychology of Meaningful Chance), Marie Louise Von Franz

and

THE DREAMING UNIVERSE, Fred Alan Wolf

I was delighted by how the fortuitous participants of Corona Smith's Dreamers Awake Thread in Penny For Your Thoughts created nine nine spoked assisted ready made collective dreamfield flowers in an open/close area of linear time.

Deign nada, amigo.

It seems to me that oracular systems may be epitomized as personality typology/precognitive intervention. The medium/media reveal psychic highlights that may or may not shift the sitter from profane to sacred and back again. Like a dream, retention of this ego-Self axis awareness is tenuous because the reader helps generate synchronicities or noncausal connections between internal and external events.

I can't believe I forgot the most obvious of all American divination systems...

I duskily recall someone recently reminding me of an old zen story about lucky/unlucky breaks...about a boy who can't become the dancer he wishes to be because he breaks his leg but the unlucky break becomes a lucky break when it prevents him from sure slaughter as a drafted soldier. The "let's see what happens" teacher reminds him of the gravity and levity of his lifetask predicaments and predilections.

Bibliomancy had me open Jeff Hoke's The Museum of Lost Wonder to

CONJUNCTIO (page 100)

& these quotes:

"We should proceed to find a neutral, or utilitarian language in which every concept we use is applicable to the unconscious as well as to matter, in over to overcome this false view that the unconscious psyche and matter are two things." --Wolfgang Pauli, physicist

"The psychological rule is: the unconscious takes the same attitude toward the ego as the ego takes toward it. If one pays friendly attention toward the unconscious, it becomes helpful to the ego."--Edward Ettinger, Anatomy of the Psyche
