Celebrating personal discordia and spiritual anarchy.

"Anarchy is not intended to be sustainable. It is not a system of government, a codified list of rules and beliefs, or a mind set geared toward cultural constructivism. It is a spark, a flash, a small flame that ignites a paradigm-obliterating explosion. It is destructive by nature. It lies dormant and, like diesel fuel, can only be ignited by tremendous pressure. It deconstructs. It strips flesh from bone and grinds bone to dust. It is doomed to consumption in the conflagration instigated by its own primal spark. It is a catalyst. It is tinder. It is powder and fuse."

Puppets of Flesh

Carnis Instrumentum, a non traditional Latin phrase, translates as "body instrument" or, more in tune with contemporary phraseology "flesh puppet". The concept implies that humans, in physical form, are often at the mercy of forces beyond recognition, conception and imagination, indeed even beyond the control of individual will and choice. This work deals with the interaction of dark, traditionally evil, forces and their methods of interaction with the human species. It denotes their collective history, intentions, beliefs, methods of operation, existential nature, etc. and codifies specific means of dealing with their symbiotic relationship to humankind. It offers an alternative perspective to moral concepts held as absolute by Jewish, Islamic and Christian theologians and expresses the possibility that choice, freedom and volition may be nothing more than illusions of a misperceived realty.
