You know, everything is music. Existence is musical, completely; that is it’s spontaneous characteristic quality. Perhaps mathematics come that closest to translating reality in a continuity; Art is the best for human beings, for self-aware living creatures. And you know, we are all creative, existence, Nature, is creatively spontaneous-that is the natural action of life! Let’s see, for instance, existence is like this one great, eternally playing symphony, and you yourself are not separate from it. You could say you’re a song yourself, and this great never-ending cosmic symphony envelopes you, you fit right in, in perfect harmony. If you are in tune, living the unique song of life, your life, and it is harmonious with the external world, reality, than you are completely aligned with Tao, with the Dharma. Now, say, if you’re notes should fumble and you begin to teeter, the music ceases from being harmonious, existence ceases from being harmonious, this is simply because you have misaligned yourself with the greater song, the higher existential symphony; the Tao, the Dharma. This is where abnormalities occur, such as misery, it is an abnormality because it is a product of disorder, it is not natural, because if it was natural, in tune and aligned with the higher nature of this of which you are not separate from, there would be no misery, no disorder. It cannot be, the whole nature of life, of creative existence, is healthy; it is good and peaceful. The more in harmony you are with your own true self, and your greater self of which you are not separate from, the happier you are, the healthier you are, because there is no problem. By itself Nature functions as a dynamic order, rather than a disorder. Nietzsche once said that the universe was truly chaos,that is absolutely not true; he is only looking at the matter from one aspect which is essentially polarity, a dual unity, for there could be no orderliness if there were no disorderliness; so if that were so, there would be no universe, a cosmos cannot be a cosmos if it is not a cosmos. We do not live in some kind of unintelligent, utterly arbitrary world, the nature of reality transcends all knowledge itself, it is beyond signs and symbols, which is what our language is constructed off of, signs and symbols, in liner thought-patterns. Our universe is not linear, it is not two-dimensional, we know for a fact it is three, and perhaps many more, but the point is it cannot exist two-dimensionally, it is our thoughts that are two-demensional, so naturally, it would be a very silly thing to mistake reality for our thoughts, to identify ourselves with objects, with sense-forms. We can do so, for that is how the most beautiful things are created, how all art is created, but we must be aware that we can do both things simultaneously-thinking and living- without identify ourselves with anything that occurs within those two-realms of existence. For to live is to live in this body, and all composite things pass away, your body is as good as a corpse! And all thought is fundamentally maya, for it is two-demensional, linear. But this does not create a vacuum in your existence! For you are not your body, or your own thoughts, you are beyond that, consciousness transcends that. So, you see, there is no reason to fear death, for the only way you could do so is by identifying yourself with your body, which you are not; or your thoughts, memories, or whatever product of the abstract-ego, for it is two-demensional, which is what you are not. So there is absolutely nothing to fear! It is just another movement in this great symphony! This is why Zen is such an explosion of health, it gets right to the heart of the matter, and allows you to EXPERIENCE it for yourself. These truths do not exist only in the realm of thought, they can be experienced, one just has to be empty, silent, thinking, and aware-alert. Some people can’t do this comfortably, because they are not healthy, they have much garbage inside of them still, which is precisely why it is all the more necessary that they do it! You will be more healthy than you’ve ever been, because all it can do is make you healthy, it is absolutely in no conflict with the natural order of things, and at the same time transcends it. At the very core of your being, you will find nothing but emptiness, you will find out that you are not, for absolutely no dualities exist. Nothing is independent from anything, absolutely nothing. And since at the very core of your being, you are not, you are non-being, you permeate all existence, naturally; you are not separate from anything existentially. But at the same time, at a lower level, you are, the atman-the soul-is existent and felt, and therefore duality still exists, but at a deeper level, the deepest level, you are not-there is not duality, you are not separate from anything whatsoever for you cannot be, because you are not! You are absolutely empty, clear, transparent. Ah, yes, everything is like music; the songs may be different, but music is music.

The Churning of the Ocean

In Indian mythology, the demons were older than their half-brothers, the Gods.

The Gods and the Demons knew that they could gain the Amrit, the Water of Life, if they churned up one of the seven oceans that, ring beyond ring, encircles the worlds. They came down to the Ocean of Milk. They took the Mountain Mandara for a churning-pole and the hundred-headed serpent for a churning-rope.

For a thousand years the Gods and the demons churned the Ocean of Milk. All the time Vasuki, the serpent, from his hundred heads spat venom. The venom bit into the rocks and broke them up; it flowed down, destroying the worlds of Gods and men. Then all creation would have been destroyed in that flood of venom if it had not been for the act of Shiva

Shiva took up the venom in a cup and drank it. His throat became blue with that draught of bitterness.

Still they churned.

And then there appeared the sage Dhanvantri, and in his hands was the cup that held the Amrit, the Water of Life. The demons strove to seize it. They almost overpowered the Gods in their efforts to seize the Amrit. Then Vishnu changed himself into a ravishing form; he seemed to be the loveliest of the nymphs of Heaven. The demons went towards where the seeming nymph postured for them. Even as they fought amongst each other for the maiden, the Gods took the cup, and, sharing it, they drank the Amrit.

And now they were filled with such vigour that the demons could not overpower them. Many they drove down into hell. That was the beginning of the wars between the Gods and the Demons…wars that went on for ages

Quietus Mix 46: Jochen Arbeit's Soundscape Archaeology

"For this mixtape I simply put together some of my favorite tracks I have been working on in the last months, plus some of my favorites from my Soundscapes Concert Series to provide a proper impression of what to expect from the upcoming show in at Cafe Oto London with Fabrizio Palumbo Modonese, Paul Beauchamp and Julia Kent. These concerts are all live improvisations and important for me nowadays because the provide a sense of freedom to produce sounds in a creative and public surrounding."


LWE Podcast 99: Juan Atkins

from: The Method Learned
"In October 1958 an organization called the National Association of Educational Broadcasters held its annual convention in Omaha, Nebraska, and featured as its keynote speaker a Canadian professor of English named Marshall McLuhan. McLuhan gave what appears to have been a dazzling speech, as was his wont, and on the basis of it the NAEB — a forward-thinking body — commissioned him to produce for them a syllabus for a year-long eleventh-grade course devoted to the study of media, especially new and visual media. They wanted American high-school students to understand “the various and often contradictory qualities and effects of media,” and believed that McLuhan was just the person to explain such matters. McLuhan gladly accepted the commission and set to work. But the syllabus and accompanying “textbook” he eventually produced baffled the leadership of the NAEB. They discerned that McLuhan had given them an ambitious and intellectually dynamic project, but could not see how to use it in a high-school classroom. One can scarcely blame them for their befuddlement, given that this was McLuhan’s idea of an appropriate discussion question for eleventh-graders: “Speech as organized stutter is based on time. What does speech do to space?”
