from I AM THAT

notes and explanations available upon request.

I will say that the “that” in the title is a play on “beyond” and very poetically appropriate. I am not “this”– here, the manifest, what you see,– but “that”–the beyond.

chapter from The Power of Imagination

Author Christophe Weigert has a chapter on my ideograms in his forthcoming book, The Power of Imagination. Below is a transcription. I took the liberty of editing a bit. One thing I would add is that automating the generation and use of these ideograms into my psche has constituted a profound change.

Maybe tomorrow I’ll provide detailed notes.

remember, usual(ly)

I have one loyal viewer from China. I find that quite amazing. Out of 1.4 billion people, only one and exactly one is consistently interested in what I am doing. How is that even possible? Maybe access is limited and only one government employee is assigned to it? Or maybe no one is actually interested but it is just a computer program that scans the net every day. Be that as it may, here is something with some Chinese character content.

The Alive Ones

by Caitlin Johnstone

This poem reminds me of Goethe’s “Selige Sehnsucht”, which I transcribed into ids and made a post of a long time ago. But Johnstone is no Goethe. This poem caught my interest because of its characterization of habit as the “opposite of life”. I had been doing some ideographic thinking about “habit” recently. (My id for “habit” is explained in my recent post on “always”.) Habit is of course not the opposite of life, but a double-edged sword. Bad habits are a scourge and enemy, but good habits can be a tremendous tool and strength, consciously chosen, positive elements character, achievements that one works to establish. When I was in high school in the 60s I read a book by John Dewey that considered life in terms of habit.

As for the theme of being more alive, though literary and philosophical approaches are not without their value, Dr. Ray Peat’s idea of improving human consciousness and aliveness through improving cellular metabolism has, I think, more to be said for it (Raypeat.com, raypeatforum.com). In his approach, the real enemy is not habit but PUFAs (polyunsaturated fatty acids–basically vegetable oils).

Sometimes I get over-pleased and -excited about an id improvement that I may not end up liking better in the long run. We’ll see.
