oblivious cancer

Moon sign aesthetic

(Can also work for rising signs I guess)

Libra: Hippies, laying snuggly on the couch/sofa, hugging people who are not feeling well emotionally, giving people heartful gifts or compliments, never-ending compassion, flower crowns, spreading love at protests, casual conversations, clothes scattered all over their rooms, natural tans, family meals, being the entertainer of the friendship group, dramatic fashion statements, blowing out a candle.

Jungkook Scenario

His life shattered before him. Was it even possible that he had such a fate? Was this where his life was headed? His lips were dry, mouthing empty words, trying to cope with the news. The world passed by on its daily routine, oblivious to the cancer amongst them.

How was he going to pluck up the courage to tell her? To relay the bad news. She would be devastated. She would be ruined. No, he couldn’t do that to her. He had to save her from this horrible truth.

“We can’t see each other anymore,” he stammered. His heart clenched itself.

“I’m sorry but…I want to focus on myself. I hope you understand,” he whispered, begging for the tears not to spill.

The Veil as a Social Construct

“My soul is melted away, inwoven within the Veil. Hast thou again knitted the Veil of Vala, which I for thee Pitying rent in ancient times. I see it whole and more Perfect: and shining with beauty!” - William Blake

The Veil, that gossamer mist that lifts periodically on both seasonal and ritual waves. That separates us from the beyond like some theatrical skrim of altered focus. Over the millennia evolution and cultural norms have shifted the boundaries of our regular awareness of reality, that spectrum of light and touch, smell and sound that defines the state we call real.

Is the Veil simply a cultural construct that helps mankind block out the reality of the beyond in order to more efficiently deal with the world of the mundane? Or is it an evolutionary trait that has pushed us toward a role as nature’s cancer, oblivious destructor of our host as the control agent of life’s very evolutionary path?

In the evolution of mankind the perception of reality has changed, shifting focus dramatically, specifically in the last five centuries. In particular the modern world has poisoned our sense of smell. Filling it with artificial scents and chemical deodorants that numb our noses. Train us that sweet smells are always pleasing and amplifying our abhorrence of bodily odor, sweat, muck and dust. Codifying our mistrust of mold and fungus. The deadening of our senses giving rise to a laser like focus on mass consumption.

The diminished power of our sense of smell plays a major role in reinforcing the accepted paradigm of modern existence. By limiting the input through our noses, a system so fined tuned it is believed to function at the quantum level, we are capable of being packed into ever increasing population densities without a spike in violence. By deadening our sense of smell we become unaware of the world around us the way a cat or a dog is. A dataset of live feedback that gives us information about that which we can not see nor hear removed out of technological necessity.

In the same way our nostrils are being censored our ears have been trained to recognize only specific frequencies as positive. When I was at Uni I found an old black acoustic guitar that someone had abandoned when moving out dumped on the street in a pile of rubbish. It had a straight neck but a hole smashed in it’s body. I took it home, never having owned a musical instrument, and fixed its body with some glue and strung it with what I had on hand, some steel bailing and copper wire. It made a resonate sound I found pleasing but my roommates complained that it sounded awful and “wasn’t in tune.” I understood music, I took band in school, but what I didn’t understand was why it always had to be tuned to just these specific frequencies? What made people so angry about ‘out of tune’ instruments? Instruments like my battered black guitar that rang disharmony with every stroke?

Western society has been trained from birth, inundated by this dishonest and harmonically limited tuning system. Forbidden to a point of actual exile to those who disagree with the tuning of sound in a set of octaves that have existed formally only a few hundred years. Yet these octaves, these notes, dominate 90% of the music made, devouring all of the rest in their path to homogenize music.

We have learned through cultural conditioning not to recognize the inherent structures outside of those accepted in western society. Much in the way the western musical scale has come to dominate world music the Western perception of reality in the post Victorian age is one that mixes science and fantasy with a dash of “I have no fucking idea” societal doubt. A self flagellating genuflection to the hallowed halls of science, those ivory towers gleaming in the sun, surrounded by an aura of smog and historic levels of carbon. A Platonic goatse of celestial proportions western society’s idea of what is real is a revulsion of the past driven by a quest for absolute “truth.” But my readers will know very well - There is no truth.

In the modern world the belief in spirits is no longer considered a rational behavior. Classified as a mental disorder spirit communication is more often dealt with as a form of fraud. The dominance of Abrahamic organized religions and their stance against anything other than the fictional monotheism, with neopagan cheerleaders in the stands waving on the continuation of dogma and the lie that is deism.

We have tuned out that which is no longer accepted in society. Mankind’s approach to the beyond in the modern world is one of novelty. Rare are those who move away from the madness of crowds and shed the box of urban living. Those to whom the world beyond the narrative of consensual reality blooms in liminal manifestation, a sea of subtle energy beholding an ecosystem of entities as complex as that of the mundane.

The veil is a social construct that binds us to consensual reality. Shaped by our languages and define by societal norms it has changed in shape and proportion considerably in the past several centuries. As the age of rationalism came upon us western society moved its interest in the realms of the beyond to that of parlor trick and novelty. The veil became a codified way in which to put humanity on the same page in terms of our ability to function as a society by eliminating our conflicting spirit systems, by modifying our behavior from the youngest age so that we edit out the knowing that we are born with. Much the way the mind edits out the reverb the ears hear and the light and dark the eyes see, providing continuity in order to advantage survival.

The people of previous centuries were more in tune with the sensitive patterns of the natural world. A mere 500 years ago the wind told a story that most people could hear, the trees sung a song that made children dane, all in their electromagnetic resonances and defined by the precision with which mankind could perceive those frequencies.

To those who cross through the Veil the world is more than society would have you believe. It is more than that fiction of monorealism. More than that consensual corporeality that validates only consumption and reproduction.

Thus the Veil stands between us and the beyond, to diminish its strength means to push back against centuries of accepted norms. To deny that which has been implanted in us since first our parents banished our imaginary friends and swept away our pixie dust collections. To burn brightly with a light and not be crushed against the wave of rationalism that threatens to limit further the perceptual experience from the mind of humankind.
