And here are some links.
One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.
Reality doesn’t remain always the same, waiting to be discovered, silent, unchallengeable. It can be moulded, contaminated, manufactured even.
attired in sudden brightness, we know that what we’re dealing, and what we’re being dealt, is true even as it’s being made up
What is it to be in the world, any world? Where are the boundaries between inside and outside? They keep moving and so do the forms that we find there (wherever ‘there’ is).
Reality is a double-sided hit. Put a needle down at any point in the universe and you’ll find the real and the unreal intertwined, wrapped in each other’s embrace, rocking and rolling. The frontier between the hidden and the manifest is a moveable one. And we have to be true to it.
