Look at your TV. Look at your Internet. That be you. In our creations we see our own hearts and minds reflected—distorted by the wires, channels, and tech—but that be you indeed. From billions of mingling, witness-bearing souls every instance, every nuance, feeling, and thought is bounced from space and back into the pool of our collective Inter-awareness. What you are seeing online is what we are offline…
The screens true value are in their individual and collective effect of forcing all those that look into them is to also look into themselves and to the world around them—I seem to be seeing all the brutality, greed, vanity, manipulation, cruelty, corruption, apathy, beliefs, violence, rape, suicide, death, and into the will, the desire, to continue it. And then there is that feeling—a shiver of collapse. Will it be the world collapsing or will it be our preservatives?
It seems to me that a telewakening will become our inevitable and with it: an unexpected revelation that was born from War of the Worlds and the Atomic Age and then raised on the War raised on Terror and the Information Age. And it seems to suggest a collective repulsion, a collective rejection, and the requirement of total love for our collective survival.
For what has been used historically as weapons against the mind and spirit of the species—images bearing (and bringing about) campaigns of total fear, total greed, total brutality, and total destruction—have actually become the very instrument which has taught the mind and spirit of humanity what it can not tolerate. What no being could tolerate. That the only option available for its survival is to become the total opposite of what it sees; the only way to escape total war, total fear, total death, and suicide is through total peace, total love, and life itself.
Images of unfathomable horror are driving us towards social, spiritual sanity.
When hell is about you in all directions, there is nowhere to turn but in and up.
OddEdges & Anti-teachings
1. A notion relating to telecommunications technology and spiritual enlightenment. Conceptually, the idea that one of the inevitable outcomes of the telecommunications boom is a sensation of embedded interconnectedness. Furthermore, due to the saturation of human-wrought images and recordings of behaviors, norms, traditions, greed, neglect, suffering, cruelty and so on, human beings will be unable to remove their attention away from it; thus forcing individuals into a deep personal inquiry into the psychological models and attitudes that allow such behavior to take root propagate.
2. The act of mental self projection/extension via social technologies becoming so omnipresent that the demand for self-reflection into the very essence of that which has generated this projection becomes an uncontrollable urge.
