"Our own decision to view the universe as dead, as inanimate, as unintelligent, allowed us, permitted us to dissect it, use it, and deny its validity outside of human purpose. Now, the consequences of living like that is coming back to haunt us. You know, we have almost destroyed our home, we have almost cut the earth from beneath our own feet

So the archaic holds answers but it only holds answers if we are willing to think of the universe as a living intelligent entity in—with which we are in partnership, not set against, but that, in fact, we are a part of a morphogenetic intent and an unfolding reality that is larger than human understanding.

It’s an organism, yes, and the galaxy is a kind of an organism. The galaxy stays together because the galaxy wants to be a galaxy.”

We have to create culture, don’t watch TV, don’t read magazines, don’t even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you’re worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you’re giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told ‘no’, we’re unimportant, we’re peripheral. ‘Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.’ And then you’re a player, you don’t want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that’s being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.

Happy early birthday, McKenna! ♥ (Because I don’t know whether I’m gonna make it in time, you know, with work and all.)

Don’t worry, I’m gonna keep it short today: You’ve got everything it takes to be successful, girl, and I’m always here, rooting for you, being an obnoxious fan who just adores the crap out of you and your creations, okay?

Okay. ♥

Also, Cardinal and Isabella are adorable. Mmmmmkay. Can’t wait to read their story! No pressure, though. No pressure. You’re busy building up your AWESOME and that’s completely fine. ♥
