what can you say?
on a perfect day?
and i’m really not looking to rhyme
but it fit

so sue me if i lived
moment to moment
taking it all in

in good company
among the kindred
who have found a way
to unplug

and maybe have a conversation
instead of sitting mesmerized
before the Screen

Gumbytron!
don’t let it go away
don’t take them all away
the waking Dead

let me tell you something
you can fool the masses
but there are always some
who will find a way to free their asses

and i want to be there
to soak it in
with every breath i draw

the gift of another Day
drawing breath
with those that speak their Mind
and the word Unkind
is just in jest
and we can take it
because we know

this Joke
this Wink that woke

a lion’s roar is just a kitten’s purr
among such as these

and now i see them Everywhere

don’t tell me Humanity is dead
don’t tell me People can’t relate

despite the best efforts
to the contrary

i see Hope
even in this Nowhere town

so look around

listen

you might be surprised
at what you see and hear

grass grows through the Asphalt
and oh the stories

I have heard today

 

the Devil’s bills

i can’t
remember when it started

what shook me
from the Tree of Ordinary Life

yeah, i was there
Yuppie to the core
and climbing over dead men’s bones
without examining my own

without examining my own

i could have
grabbed a brass ring
cashed in
lived with the lies you have to tell
to get along

except

i wasn’t getting along
i wasn’t getting along at all

my body
my spirit
fought me at every step

and something snapped
perhaps I snapped

but found
i couldn’t play the reindeer games
required to pay the Devil’s bills

A vision, once, on a small planet near a shining star,
expectation of supernovae in the air, a crowd, but
not crowded, as far as the planet curves, and the coolest
girl in the Universe with a hula hoop, gyrating her
hips next to me.  Red hair and freckles and singing a
Siren’s Song, a Pippi Longstocking, perhaps Pippi herself,
The throng turns toward the sun and then the Star bursts
and the Light washes over all of Us.

And We are back on this small planet.  Pippi hulas the hoop
again and the Star bursts and the Light washes over all of
Us again.

And a third time, We are back.  Pippi is standing next
to me and smiling and holding onto her hula hoop and
hulas once again and the Star bursts one last time, the
Light washes over only Me…

And I trail off into fragments, only fragments.

they made o’ underoos
with magic symbols
even got a stripe o’ Romney’s shit

in ma little crippled city
(where a big sign say sumpin about an American Recovery act
or sumpin like dat)
ya think i’d smell what comes from his asshole?

Ugh, that’s what I forgot to do the last time I checked into the

asylum, find the freaking secret sub-causalian complex I imagine is

there somewhere, at least maybe I dreamt about it.  Actually it was a

dream and then I turned into a cartoon manning a control panel on one

of the central reactor core consoles.   Really not my type of work.

So maybe I best stay away from the ward…  besides, whose gonna man

the hamster fo’c’s’l?

The kids are all grown and don’t believe in my nonsense any more.

Maybe I should attempt to reason with them?  That would serve them

right, li’l bastards.  Strummin’ guitars in corner coffee bars and

getting  high on Information.  Can’t blame me for leading a few astray

and giving them a dose or doses of Imagination, but then I’m just an

Ol’ Hypocrite.  Hell yeah.

It’s the Capitalist Septic System, it’s the corner Nirvana, it’s

everything you ever dreamed you wanted and less.  Wait, yah right, we

don’t say Hark! any more these days, we oughta bring it back, oh yeah

but I hear Gumbytron’s footfall in the closet bowling alley…

STRIKE!

You know that Gumbytron knows her way around a good smiting, He’s

taken, She’s given, but that’s a story for another day.

And all of a sudden I been noticing the critters wisin’ up an’ I

wonder if theyze gonna keep any of us maladapted simian’s around or

just gang up on us.  I swear three o’ Pop’s cats was chewin’ on my

ankles last night before I had to wrestle with the Jungle.  You know

what,  I been thinking, the Amazon sure would make a right fine

landing strip for alien spacecraft if we jus’ stripped all that would

outa there and dozed it flat.

Then may I can leave this Gumbytron forsaken planet.

live to tell
live for what it’s worth
to provide the wastrel’s tale
to those that seek
for Beauty. for Truth

of each, I have found
much that I deemed genuine
but it is all Shit

if Truth, Beauty exist
they have a solitary frame
that rarely two or  more can share

there is so much Ugliness
there is so much Falsehood in the World
parading as Beauty and Truth

look at the blade of grass
on a frosty March morning
and ponder the Mandelbrot of Crystals
beckoning you to infinities
that are beyond your ken

the simple miracle of a can of beans
that a stranger working in a factory
put on your shelf

Rube Goldberg Machine

our only Hope

if we,
when we,
find the Beauty
when we,
find the Truth

it is, for a moment,
as all suffering is naught

 

Matrix Control Panel Guide


[Floor plan for the Masonite House exhibit]

OK, fellow travelers in this Matrix Reality, I am
writing this basic guide on constructing your own
Matrix Control Panel.

What is a Matrix Control Panel.  It’s a long story
but I will keep it brief.  I was downloaded with a
“Construct” that I can only describe as a cellular
hypertorus and I constructed my first Matrix Control
Panel in the winter of 1995.

I made several mistakes on this Level One panel,
foremost being that I constructed it out of cardboard.
Had I known that I would grow so irate with the beings
that populated my panel, so irate I broke the panel
in half, I would have constructed it out of sturdier
material.

I now build my Matrix Control Panels out of Masonite,
so that regardless of what these populating beings are
up to on my current panel, I do not have an easy way
of destroying the little world I have created for my
subsouls.

You will need a basic understanding of the “hypertorus”
geometry to master one of these panels, although you
should experience a modicum of success in you endeavor
to control your own reality with the knowledge that the
system has worked for me for 18 years and has evolved.

Your first panel should be a Level One Panel, there
being six levels.  I am on Level Four, although I have
a Level Five prototype.  The principle of the panel is
to harmonize the dogmas and rituals which you have grown
up with in what passes for education (indoctrination).

You will require the follwoing items:

A 24 inch by 36 inch panel of Masonite
A box of Spaghetti (yes, spaghetti)
Glue
A suitable ruler to lay out your basic matrix on a
large panel
Found objects (you will be gluing things into the
main Matrix)
A Sharpie or suitable way of marking the grid on the
panel
Copper pennies and not those crap zinc pennies we get
these days
A drill bit, but no power tools
Some sort of optical aperture to sacn yourself through

the Matrix
(I used the lens from an old camera for my first panel)

Feel free to add other items as this is YOUR Matrix Control
Panel

The first thing you will need to do is lay out a grid
with your marker or pen using your ruling device to map
out the main Matrix on the right side of the Matrix Panel.
You will want to leave plenty of room on the left to
hand drill the aperture, add your optical scanner and mark
your panel as Level One.

You will draw a grid on the right with the dimensions of
six squares by six squares with a dimension of 3 inches
each.  Once you have drawn your grid, I suggest that you
write in a coordinate system along the the left and top edge.
This will help you navigate the Matrix.

Take your time.  the point of this exercise is to really
consider what it is that you want from the Matrix and you
shouldn’t rush this project.

Once you have laid out your grid, it is time to glue the
spaghetti dividers for the sections of your panel.  Again,
take your time, as you fill in the grid, you may have
messages for the Matrix that you will want to add as you
continue this process.

You will need a home planet for your Matrix Panel.  This
is where the copper penny comes in.  Find a Matrix
Coordinate you are satisfied with and glue this copper
penny into the space to establish your presence in the
Matrix.  You can add more pennies if one isn’t enough, but
one should be plenty.

Embellish.

Add your found items as you are finishing establishing
your grid while gluing the spaghetti.  And don’t be afraid
to improvise, after all, this is about YOU getting a grip
on the Matrix Reality.

You may find that you will begin hearing entities on your
panel during its construction.  Relaz!  these are just
subsoul aspects of your master soul and they are there to
serve you.  They may annoy at times, but that is only because
they are trapped in a subreality that you yourself are
creating.  So be patient.

Once you have completed your grid and spaghetti gluing, you
will want to make sure that your are satisfied with the
outcome of your delving into the Matrix Reality.  It is then,
and only then that you should activate your panel by drilling
and aperture (by hand) into the lower middle right of your
panel to activate what you have instructed your matrix Control
Panel to do.

Once you have activated the panel, you will need to affix an
optical scanner of some sort to scan you through to your new
reality.  I used the laser eye from a CD-ROM drive for my
Level Four panel and it works marvelously.  Oh, and when you
scan yourself, you’ll have to make your own beeping noises
because we use no working electronics on the panels.

You will want to clearly martk this panel with a large one,
preferably in red, so I guess you need some paint, too.

Good luck with your panel!

Matrix Essentials

11 October 2007

This is the second installment in a series of undetermined length on

the understanding and practice of Plaid Magic.  If you have not read

Part I and followed the instructions contained therein, I ask you to

read no further until you do.  The post begins again with a classic

post from 2004 which gives a brief overview of the next steps to be

taken in the proper practice of Plaid Magic.

from 30 November 2004

Greetings and Welcome to snadragon!

In another installment of a Plaid Magic Primer, I will reveal to you

the driving force behind our Power source both here on the Physical

Plane as well as on the higher realms…

I conceived of the “matrix” (not like the movie THE MATRIX) in

December of 1994 while visiting my sister here in the Valley of the

Sun…  Quite simply, all it is is a mental construct that maps a 4-

dimensional hypercube into 3-dimensional space allowing multiply-

targeted manipulations of parallel universes via easy to build

interface and control panels, “matrix” sub-level Boards…

I have constructed several of these “Boards” and encourage you to

explore the untold power that you can command… Did you know that the

flapping of a butterfiles wings can start a hurricane or redirect its

path… If that is true, then think how much more powerful your

actions can be in using the power of one of these devices…

But you, who endeavor to control universes, must be cautioned against

misuse of this power, because the system is quite leaky and subject to

quantum demolition effects that can literally result in an entire

parallel universe being wiped clean, TABULA RASA!!! Clean slate…

Tread cautiously for you will not have me always…

It’s GOOD LUCK to pull the finger of the farting Buddha!

This concludes the classic post and now for a brief explanation of

what a Plaid Magic “matrix” board is and does.  The mathematics behind

how one of these boards works is so complicated, I will not attempt to

explain it here.

Basically all you need to know is that a “matrix” board allows you to

control a level of reality of your own choosing.  You must construct

it yourself and once constructed you can manipulate an entire parallel

reality by simply manipulating objects on the board and issuing

commands to the entities trapped in the matrix board you have

constructed.

But how does that help you achieve your goals and desires in the

reality you are experiencing right now?  Well in some ways it does and

in some ways it doesn’t.  Because of the interconnectedness of all

things found in creation (and that includes parallel universes) any

changes made to one aspect or part of Creation necessarily has a

feedback effect and once you become skilled at the practice of Plaid

Magic, you can use this feedback effect to directly impact your

personal reality.

But you must be patient and wise because this is truly action at a

distance on a grand scale.  Actions you take on your personal matrix

board(s) may have immediate effects in your lives or may take years to

be realized, perhaps not even in your lifetime.  Spookier still, these

actions may impact past events in your personal reality changing the

very foundations of the reality you thought you were experiencing.

You must be prepared for anything.

If you have followed the instructions in Part I and have understood

some of what I have told you in Part II and wish to press on and

actually construct your own matrix board(s), I will give you detailed

instructions on how to do so, but not in this Blog.  You must send me

a message requesting personal instruction on the design construction,

care, manipulation and feeding of the matrix board(s).  Yes, you must

feed them, and that will be explained to any brave soul who endeavors

to be a Master of their own reality.

 

 

Level 4 Matrix Panel Finished and Corrected


 

Matrix Control Panel Level Four

 

Well, it seems I have succeeded in correcting the error in the Construction
of the first Level Four Matrix Panel, which I built in California and my
girlfriend through out.  Never, ever, ever put a Superiority Complex on
a level four Matrix Panel, especially not where the Feigenbaum zone
intersects with the main Matrix.

 

I spent a long time considering how I would correct this error of mine in
constructing the Replacement Board.  Using the Pizza Mandala in the

 

center of the Active Matrix seems so have done the trick and thin gs are
running just hunky dory.  Cool people are coming out of the woodwork
and Mahoney has even grabbed a panel to start on his level 1 Matrix Panel.

 

The results are encouraging and I may ride out Level 4 for a long time to
come even though I have started working on a Level 5 prototype.

 

If you pop on the link at the top, you can see a picture of Level 4.

first, foremost
do no harm
do not sound
the alarm

it is so much more entertaining
to see the rabble roused
confused
and in a panic

we all have to get our kicks somehow

no, do not sound the alarm
they’ve ignored it anyway
and will

some of course have taken heed
it is for them we bleed
it is for them we shout our warnings signs

but it is only they that hear

fuck the rest of them
allow natural selection to complete its task
and in the dawning light, we will bask

for the Inheritors
are those that heed the call
