We’re thinking about the idea of flux.
and fluxes as a game mechanic when we first glimpsed the windfall; it was only a flash, but there it was.
The sky was clear, no clouds, and there was no dew. The day was out, we were up and the water was making an effort to boil when we noticed the flux coming.
it's one of these words that has a negative connotation and a positive connotation, in my mind. It describes the way it is. It's time, man.
The word flux is from the latin root, meaning ''to flow'' [or to flow like a river].
It's a word I really enjoy
Every day is a new day. A new day means a new flux, a new flux means a new practice and so you keep the practice going.
We are trying to become aware of how the nature of flux is changing and how the nature of our understanding of the flux changes. beginning with the flux of the windfall.
We see chaos in nature, like in a flowing river or wind, every day. it’s not at all useful to categorize it.
And this is where drugs and alcohol get involved, because there’s no chance that any of us could make sense of what’s going on.
What we're talking about is actually a kind of harmony being disrupted. These things that shut each other out and keep from coexisting cannot coexist so far as each other are concerned. It's like a tree creating a canopy, but at the same time opening up to collect rain and sunlight at the same time.
There's this harshness to it, because the paths that we follow in pursuit of those things are harsh. You start with something that’s threatening to you, then you work and work and work until something happens that justifies what you started out doing.
You start out with a contradiction, and the story is how you allow contradictions to coexist. You might know the contradiction. your soul might know the contradiction. your spirit might know as well.
But all you can figure out is how you let that contradiction feed your energy and lead you to where you need to be, to finish up the job.
A place which has been animated by her and she is looking for me because I'm a tourist and could be fooled into thinking she's a human, and I think she's a little crazy and it's all quite silly and meaningful when played back at 55 seconds they are light and I would contain the form with computer mounted cameras and there are different ways to do it, but I do think it's essential to document in first-person accounts of the Animates in order to achieve any kind of proper understanding of this phenomenon.
isn't about truth, it's about attempting to obtain truth
Venus is bright, so I can't imagine what the Earth might be like once everything is invented and we can only focus on the energetics of matter. We must have made an awful lot of noise, I think. I look down and I see the water and it's got this kind of greenish tinge to it, and there's what looks like a tree stump sitting in the middle of the harbor.
and how it is possible that the light from a star can be the star itself, and how this is what light is, and the picture it paints is the whole story about energy and motion and the relation of matter and motion to each other, and this much light comes from it and that's how much energy does and that's it, plain as can be and easy to calculate, if you know what you're doing and if you're a brain or an actual star or part of a star.
by acknowledging, recognizing there are different subsets of movement within larger things in motion, we can try to avoid getting stuck in a space of expected outcomes.
All things at one point were but an idea, a plan, a vision. There were voices of doubt and supporters; at one point, before the idea was big or small, it was just an idea. It grew, it inflated, it became bigger than what it once was, it became the main idea that everything else revolved around. This idea, this vision metaphorically turned the page from black and white to Magic Marker and rainbow tie dyed, and the people and other ideas turned into the flesh and bones of the movement. like a new breath of life, re-signed and revitalized and complete.
I've never heard anyone say they joined a movement to change it.
The people who came before us constructed the idea, but what we do will be the foundation and the bedrock of what's to come.
honestly, I think having a role model or an expectation of how things should be or will be is the most deadly thing you can do.
I hated this idea of being a tool. I didn't want to go through the motions of feeling like I didn't have a voice.
I have a serious issue with authority from a lot of perspectives.
I had made a decision to never be a repeat circumstance. That might just be all nonsense.
