Chuang Tzu in dream

Stumbleupon Review







    Chuang Tzu in dream became a butterfly,
    And the butterfly became Chuang Tzu at waking.
    Which was the real--the butterfly or the man ?





    Who can tell the end of the endless changes of things?
    The water that flows into the depth of the distant sea
    Returns anon to the shallows of a transparent stream.








    The man, raising melons outside the green gate of the city,
    Was once the Prince of the East Hill.
    So must rank and riches vanish.
    You know it, still you toil and toil,--what for?




    - Li Po -



 

He who knows nothing, loves

He who knows nothing, loves nothing. He who can do nothing understands nothing. He who understands nothing is worthless. But he who understands also notices, loves, sees... The more knowledge is inherant in a thing, the greater the love... Anyone who imagines that all fruits ripen at the same time as the strawberries knows nothing about grapes.


-- Paracelsus.

Kain V




    No te amo como si fueras rosa de sal, topacio
    o flecha de claveles que propagan el fuego:
    te amo como se aman ciertas cosas oscuras,
    secretamente, entre la sombra y el alma.

    Te amo como la planta que no florece y lleva
    dentro de sí, escondida, la luz de aquellas flores,
    y gracias a tu amor vive oscuro en mi cuerpo
    el apretado aroma que ascendió de la tierra.

    Te amo sin saber cómo, ni cuándo, ni de dónde,
    te amo directamente sin problemas ni orgullo:
    así te amo porque no sé amar de otra manera,

    sino así de este modo en que no soy ni eres,

    tan cerca que tu mano sobre mi pecho es mía,
    tan cerca que se cierran tus ojos con mi sueño.

    - Pablo Neruda

Laetitia Berthome


There is another world,
but it is in this one.



      at the window


      I have not always had this certainty, this pessimism which reassures
      the best among us. There was a time when my friends laughed at me. I
      was not the master of my words. A certain indifference, I have not
      always known well what I wanted to say, but most often it was because I
      had nothing to say. The neccessity of speaking and the desire not to be
      heard. My life hanging only by a thread.

      There was a time when I seemed to understand nothing. My chains floated on the water.


      All my desires are born of my dreams. And I have proven my love with
      words. To what fantastic creatures have I entrusted myself, in what
      dolorous and ravishing world has my imagination enclosed me? I am sure
      of having been loved in the most mysterious of domains, my own. The
      language of my love does not belong to human language, my human body
      does not touch the flesh of my love. My amorous imagination has always
      been constant and high enough so that nothing could attempt to convince
      me of error.

      - Paul Eluard

The Great Way leads nowhere,
And it is no place.
Affirm it and you miss it by a mile;
"This is delusion, that is enlightenment" is also wide of the mark.
You can expound theories of "existence" and "nonexistence"
Yet even talk of the "Middle Way" can get you sidetracked.
I'll just keep my wonderful experiences to myself.
Babble about enlightenment, and your words get torn to shreds.

...or other things


Sulphur - When most people think of Sulphur they think of Satanism, and quite probably that notable quote from famous satanist drag queen Anton Szandor LaVey : "How could you set yourself up as the most powerful institution on earth? You first find out what every man feels at least once a day, establish that as a sin, and set yourself up as the only institution capable of pardoning that sin."

Proof if proof were ever needed that self-important man-tarts can occasionally stumble upon something worth saying.

However Sulphur is more than just the stench of eternal damnation sold to gullible fools by the church that usurped jeebus. It is also Yellow.

I once wrote a poem involving it, however you should ignore it, as poetry is the anti-thesis of good science. As well as the peppery condiment.

Eau de Lucifer

Designed by our top parfumiers:
a scent, most wonderfully sulphorious.
Guaranteed tested on animals!
May cause a slight rash in some.
And, eternal damnation in others.

I shall now go and lash myself for that lapse into unscientifitude.

...or spictrims


Ghosts - Ghostonomy is one of hottest fields of study in modern science. It is believed that it could be an energy source to rival even the best of current cold fusion science. Ghost powered technology could even soon replace the mini-reactor in most home entertainment devices.

Next month will be one of the biggest in the history of ghostonomy with the opening of the new Stockholm spooker-collider, which will propel ghosts into each other at vast speeds of up to 27 miles per an hour, or possibly even more!

...or a tramp


Germs - Although the vast bulk of studies to date have shown that the majority of Texans believe 'Germs' to be the proper name for people from the country of Germany (which, according to the same study is located just to the North of Iraq, with Translyvania, Atlantis, and Quebec to the East, North, and West respectively), this isn't the case. Germs in fact mostly come from Belgium, are invisible, and rarely vote. The only exception to that being polls about deforestation. No one knows why this is.
