“Unfortunately there can be no doubt that man is, on the whole, less good than he imagines himself or wants to be. Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. At all counts, it forms an unconscious snag, thwarting our most well-meant intentions.” – Carl Jung
Gone the Tides of Earth
At first light I am up by the soft blue of breaking dawn. The morning has come clear and cool with a steady breeze sifting in the screen. Alci and Jacqueline lie asleep faced opposite on the bed and I resting on the floor, clothing and pillows cushioning hardwood.
Humanity's next revolution is not artistic, scientific or industrial, but spiritual. The final frontier is a myth. Civilization cyclically approaches death and rebirth in cosmic metamorphoses not dissimilar to the mortality of human beings and the greater karmic journey/footprints binding a soul.

Alexis Carrel: Man cannot remake himself without suffering, for he is both the marble and the sculptor. Bertrand Russel: Those who forget good and evil and seek only to know the facts are more likely to achieve good than those who view the world through the distorting medium of their own desires.
The Book Of Thoth. The Matrix. These are two chronicles, mythologies of mankind which allude to things in the deeper and darker annals of reality. A lot of people view these as parables for society at large, even astutely allegorical; it is not hard to see the applicability. The species has existed these last 0ne-hundred-fifty-years like hamsters on a multitudinously cogged hamster-wheel. In our state of mechanized living we have been conditioned to seek out pleasure in a variety of ways through executive functions and experiences, which are pleasurable in their own right, yet not meant to be a means to a (dopamine) end. Like hamsters literally sucking the water from their feeders, we drink, eat, use, exercise, travel and seek out novelty, encompassing pursuits both mundane and dangerous, as a method to feel better, not just in the appreciation of artful living.
You are not a being of identity but rather one of energy. Ego structure is only ever and always paper-thin. Though what you are experiencing byway wave of vibration is powerful in shaping your decision-making and creates your entire inner reality, which then becomes tailor made into who and what you think you are, by the mental makeup at our current stage in the evolutionary process of human-form.
