When you run out of blag
Caught in the act
Dumb under lights
How do you continue your striptease?

Like pulling petals off a flower
Or legs off a spider
But if you lose your nerve
How do you continue your striptease?

The band’s out of tune
There’s flies in the room
The crowds starts to boo
But this is reality

How can I remove the final layer
To reveal
There was never anyone here at all?

fractal flowering
infinite beauty
self similar, yet not the same
the small magnified
to make it large
wherein is hid the smaller
small
yet magnified again in endless frames
the never ending depth that is not deep...

levels and layers there are not any
and seeing too is one... not many
for all that's seen is seen
in this vast tiny space refracting jewel
this eye of God...

weaving patterns... filaments of light
to apprehend... the meaning of delight
and yet this beauty's not of pattern formed
but in this self same seeing... once its dawned...

Love

there are no such 'things' as appear in any of these pictures...

and yet the pictures seem to be of 'things'...

how wonder full... Very Happy

Love

yes indeed ANNA…

wonder full mystery…

the 'buddhabrot' (the stylized image of a buddha constructed from the mandlebrot set - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandlebrot_set) seen in the first picture, appears only at the scale at which it is observed... as it is ‘magnified’ it changes... endlessly... there is no such 'thing' as a 'buddhabrot'… it 'exists’ only as a set of rules... and these never ending images...

nor is there any 'orion nebula'... even in scientific terms the appearance 'exists' only in the eye of a person seeing it from the perspective of 1,500 lights years away in time and distance at this particular orientation... such a 'thing' never existed 'close up' and nor does 'it' exist from 'far away'... what is seen is wholly an 'appearance'... given meaning as the 'orion nebula'...

nor is there an ‘actual world’ in which pink mountains exist
where they hang upside down under water
nor one in which trees are the height of mountains
nor rivers as wide as the horizon that stop at the edge of the plain...

and there is no building in which the arches and pillars get smaller...

nor are there any 'light rays' perceived going from the mountains seen (or the picture of the mountains) to the eye...

these are all optical 'ILLUSIONS'... Very Happy

any thought that there are 'things’ out there apart from these images is wholly 'conjecture'

nowhere can these assumed 'things' be seen or felt or tasted or smelled or heard...

for these images exist only in the seeing of them...

and yet, 'you' know what 'mountains' are in relation to 'trees' and 'rivers' and 'mosques' and 'nebulae' and all else...

these 'things' exists only in the knowing of them...
with all the 'deep' complexity ascribed to 'matter'... and more... Very Happy

'what' they are in themselves
is ever unknowable...

Love
