The Commonplace

We can escape the commonplace only by manipulating it, controlling it, thrusting it into our internal linkdreams or surrendering it to the free play of our subjectivity.

In days gone by, we were afraid of dying in dishonor or a state of sin. Nowadays, we are afraid of dying fools. Now the fact is that there is no Extreme Unction to absolve us of foolishness. We endure it here on earth as subjective eternity.

subjectivity = shared hallucinations

Those "elements," seen through the medium of the mix - reveal to us a place where different voices, rhythms, and tones internal linkfuse to create a syncretic internal linkflow of sound as externalized internal linkmemory.  They become epiphenomena whose central purpose is to act as a mnemonic device:  the social construction of subjectivity is internal linkinformed by the memories that become the shared text of an attenuated media environment made possible by a variable architecture synthesized from the tones that comprise its forms.  C.S. Pierce noted in his idea of semiosis a similar unfolding of human expression, albeit without its internal linkcybernetic inplications (although they are implicit in his work I believe), when he wrote back in the 19th century "that since any thought, there must have been a thought, has its analogue in the fact that, since any past internal linktime, there must have been an internal linkinfinite series of times.  To say, therefore, that thought cannot happen in an instant, but requires time, is but another way of saying that every thought must be interpreted in another, or that all thought is in signs." - internal linkDJ Spooky

The fact that consciousness is a subjective trans-internal linkdimensional bridge linking many realms, explains why internal linkshamanic states cannot be measured in three-dimensional terms, although our internal linkimagined protocols may be in some sense "objective", it is impossible to objectify the consciousness trying to measure itself by them!

"I like the idea of the aesthetics of the idea at the moment you're hearing it. Like, not that you're disagreeing with it necessarily, it's just to be sort of taken in and internal linkprocessed. Obviously, some are gonna internal linkresonate; others, y'know--people are going to take it differently. It's all about your own personal, highly subjective experience. I don't think it would ever be the same for two people. "
