Like the website that hosts it, this blog is only concerned with using art and brief texts to uncover the bias and other limitations of thought conditioned by memory and tradition, thus also revealing how this largely unacknowledged tribal egotism that affects all human beings creates and sustains the systemic disorder and violence of the world in which we all live.

Without a radical awakening to the immense distance between our mental and social reality and the truth, we are condemned to continue living in the same cruel division, conflict, and sorrow to which we ourselves sustain with our personal memories, thoughts, and desires.

A Crucial Distinction Is Urgently Needed: the Representation is not the Represented, and the Reduction of the Actuality of Life to Thought Creates an Aberrant Reality

There is thought, which is the response of memory to whatever the organism may perceive of life at any point in time and space; and then there is the indivisible movement of life itself, the unthinkable totality that while including within itself particular individuals and the human species as a whole, extends infinitely beyond what we singly or collectively can ever experience, know, imagine, and desire.

All our fears and afflictions, both personal and collective, are due to our general incapacity to tell the difference between what we each think about, and want out of life, and the mystery of life itself. 

When a given mind stops confusing actuality with representation, it is because it has somehow come to see beyond the limitations and falsehoods inherent to self-centered thought and what this thought projects onto the future through desire. If accurate and complete enough, this perception dissolves the insecure sense of separate existence that limited and contradictory opinions and goals create and sustain. Once free of the absurd and dangerous ballast of cultural and psychological distinction this mind slips, largely unnoticed, into the ever present and welcoming embrace of its natural and actual source.

Exclusionary progress through the development of greater forms of secular and religious conceptualization operating at the tribal and personal levels is a dangerous illusion, an artificial, made-up reality with very real and ever-worsening psychological, social, and ecological effects that, at some point, life will no longer tolerate.

It is only through a sensible transit away from an alienated, and therefore necessarily conflicted, and conflictive representational existence, that the human mind become whole and thus able to bring the same healing, the same wholeness of life, to others and the wider cultural context.
