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."

Filter Me, Jesus

Language is a construct, a program for translating electrical stimuli into sound waves and broadcasting it. My guess is the creator is not even obligated to use this method. In a state of existence that presupposes absolute knowledge and omniscience, indirect communication is neither effective nor warranted. Language is a product of the vessel (US) imposing structure upon the incoming stimuli. The Creator doesn’t work in language, but image and direct, experiential somatic stimuli. Language is subjective and cannot possibly convey the experiential knowledge required to get the cosmic message into our minds. Our ability to explain the message to others, however, is where the communication falls flat. That’s why it has to be personal, intimate direct and experiential. Think about that the next time your ecclesiastical leaders tell you they have a revelation for you…they are going to filter that direct communication through their own semantic / experiential filters and it will, unavoidably, be colored and biased by the limitations of both.

When I image God, I imagine a state that leaves nothing to interpretation… a “world” where subjectivity cannot exist and everything is a direct empirical, sensual sampling in real time. You would know what kind of soul a person possess because you would be able to experience it directly without filters, measure it precisely and formulate an exact, fact based Gestalt based on solid evidence. No guesswork. No faith…just sure knowledge.

What if the Creator exists as an instrument of pure sensate interface and, as such, is able to delineate, without error or deviation, each and every aspect of the cosmos individually as it is encountered…rather than the learned being applying subjective gleaned knowledge to each and every decision and observed process? Which would be more omniscient? Which would represent fairness and justice more? A Creator that takes passion and opinion out of the equation and sorts our individual souls according to an actual weight and measure of our intrinsic soul-stuff would be the ultimate Gestalt engine, the ultimate impartial judge, the ultimate source of absolute fairness in the universe…..

Damn, that would leave us with a real dilemma then, with real responsibility for the makeup and resonance of our own souls…
