The Surfer on Acid is Like a Virgin: X Takes a Bough

"This is Bowie in New York.  This is Edward Alexander at the Chelsea Hotel." 

“What the alchemy of 20th Century Media allows, what traditional straightforward media does not, is a dialogue with the other that is full of give and take.

I think it was William Blake who said “Truth can never be told so as to be understood and not be believed”, and this is the kind of information that is coming through the alchemical media experience.  It is information that you have to believe.  You have to believe it because it has this ring of authenticity.  It is the logos.  It is the word, somehow.  What is being said is that our alienation from ourselves has caused us to set up a number of straw men that keep us from building a mature model of how the Universe really works.  The content of the dialogue with the other is a content that indicates that man’s horizons are infinitely bright.

As Thomas Vaughan put it, “The body is the placenta of the non-local.”  This fact has not yet been assimilated because it runs counter to Western reductionist materialist empiricism.  This idea that the body is the placenta to the non-local is not an object of faith or dogma, it is a program for activity.  The activity that it implies is a familiarization with the non-local, and the non-local has been banned from Western thinking for four hundred years.

I take this concept very seriously.  If any of you are familiar with the literature of alchemy, alchemy is about the generation of a psychic construct, a wholeness, a thing that has many properties, that is paradoxical, which is both mind and matter, which can do anything.  This is the last gasp of the non-local before it is submerged completely.  

The non-local has became trapped in an association with phonic matter in the last historical epoch.  Media alchemy allows a searchlight to be thrown on these deeper levels of the psyche, as Jung correctly stated.  But it is not a museum of archetypes or psychic constructs as he seemed to assume.  It is a frontier of wholeness into which any person so motivated and so courageous can go.  It is a dimension of vertical gain that is real, and is present in all of our lives, and that we do not acknowledge except as an anomaly, because we have been told it is an anomaly.  We have been told that these perceptions have to be devalued.  The result of this is to so distort the psychic life of the species in the present historical context that we have this Home Box Office disease which is essentially a rupture into three dimensional space of this archetype of wholeness, and it haunts time like a ghost, and it haunts human experience in the 20th century because it is a symbol of alienation.  In fact the word “alien” has come to be applied to this thing.  It is alien, it comes from the satellites, it is totally non-human.

What it is is the Self in a form in which it is most accessible to the Ego, given the Ego’s programming.  In order not to alarm us it has disguised itself as an extra-dimensional laser, but is in fact, the collectivity of the human psyche, signaling a profound historical crisis.”

Start "2001: A Space Odyssey" by Stanley Kubrick at the end of the Intermission.
Start "Apocalypse Now" by Francis Ford Coppola after Laurence Fishburne dies.
Start "Blackstar" by David Robert Jones at Track 1 (allow album to repeat).

"We cannot contain the Logos.  As much as we try to define her, or to control her, she will find some way to deliver the message. 

It's a pity she's a whore."

"And now, an ending. Where there was once one, there are now two. 
Or were there always two 
What is a reflection? A chance to see two? When there are chances for reflections, 
there can always be two - or more. 
Only when we are everywhere will there be just one.

It has been a pleasure speaking to you."

Freak Out (Blackout)

The King of the World circling the Pole.




Empress Beyonce + Emperor Bruno Mars became a re-encapsulation of previous Superb Owls:

Beyonce's Blackout + "Locked Out of Paradise" (Uptown Funk to Funky)

Giordano Bruno Mars (believer in the plurality of inhabited worlds) beat Paradise for the Grammy and thus his Super Bowl performance became the Anti-Del Rey juxtaposed with Katy as Babylon Below the year later.  Aleister Crowley said Lemuria was colonized by Martians (!) — no word about Ziggy Stardust the Space Invader.


Spotlight reveals the shadow of adulthood veiling Boyhood at puberty — a shadow that deceives with belief in the Out There of the Outer Church (a Mad [Pontifex] Maximus).

This is the system of the Old Aeon in decay — Hollywood presents New Aeon signs and wonders of a world turned Inside Out (it's the Freakiest show).

King of the World Leo DiCaprio fights the Bears guarding the pole star and laughs as Gaga buys another trophy written "To the fairest" . . . The Revenant is man decimated after the Abyss crossing saving the Princess of the Atlantean Remnant.

Diana slays her guardsmen, even as they eucharistically slay her as Mary Inviolate torn upon wheels around the circumference. A Metatron riddle of that forgotten darkness in a Lost Paradise.





Leo only becomes King by acknowledging the Universal Sorrow encapsulated in the drowned brunette; drowned by the blonde who said that exo was the true place of the light, and not the unseen darkness

This being also Gatsby serenaded into the water by the siren sounds of "Young and Beautiful" after being spurned by the blonde (to whom all parties are dedicated, like the wars of Helen):




Always a diamond friendly, sitting in the Laugh Hotel

Lady Gaga wins a Golden Globe on the day of Bowie's death and performs her tribute act at the Grammys ... the resemblance to a young Angie Bowie is uncanny. Blonde daylight parties give way to brunette nighttime depths.

Monomyth: Inanna descends to the Underworld and is hanged for three days, then decides that Tammuz will yearly be hanged in her place

"Till It Happens to You" -- rape is a mere abstraction until one becomes Persephone in Hades, upside-down (Participation in the Mystery)

The Revenant hinges on the original rape of the Indian Princess; Leo's rape (or drowning) is but restitution and recapitulation of the original crime.



The ennui of modernity becomes curiosity as one reaches down into an unknown darkness. The wish to be something more than human (per David Bowie) becomes an imitation of Sophia's original creative act — Persephone's descent into Hades.

Sophia (the dove) sees her reflection in the waters of Chaos (the Dead Pool) and runs to meet it, becoming a "Freak" exiled from the mundane, drinking the cup of poison that Christ begged to be taken from him.

"California" as the Western lands of Underworld, forgotten home to a Lemurian Paradise (Lost).

Your Cult Leader meets your Jazz Singer as Hierophant and High Priestess down through history in an Initiation into expanded consciousness, ending the division of the two churches:

Shiva is priest and mediator of a Shakti presence; he who enters the Holy of Holies and communes directly with God — but in our modern world, the Church in the Spotlight no longer fulfills this function; it has become an empty and abusive Manson Family disconnected from the Source (Family). Isis in the Aquarian Age:
