Mixed Media

no barriers, no walls to our ears and eyes and other senses ...

as per Mark's thoughts below, it might be interesting to watch how Thought, Feeling, and Actions interact with barriers and walls in the sensual channels.

Turn on, tune in, drop out:
source: ... Leary explained in his 1983 autobiography Flashbacks: “Turn on’ meant go within to activate your neural and genetic equipment. Become sensitive to the many and various levels of consciousness and the specific triggers that engage them. Drugs were one way to accomplish this end. ‘Tune in’ meant interact harmoniously with the world around you – externalize, materialize, express your new internal perspectives. Drop out suggested an elective, selective, graceful process of detachment from involuntary or unconscious commitments. ‘Drop Out’ meant self-reliance, a discovery of one’s singularity, a commitment to mobility, choice, and change.
... I'm working on the reverse direction or the "drop out" phase. I am already connected to the Cosmos with thought, feeling & will.  I don't really need the electronic interface - fascinating though it is.
This morning I was looking out my window at the birds who drop by & pick things out of the bushes, ruffle their feathers & flutter away - they always remind me of how much Lotus liked birds & perhaps why she carved so many.  They are there one instant & then gone - much like thoughts. They don't stay long unless you play with them or feed them.  Today was special because the analogy grew deeper. On my somewhat dirty window pane was a shadow cast by some birds flitting amongst the bushes - just a shadow not even a bird - still similar to thought sometimes. Lately I have been able to access some of those thoughts just a pre-verbal spark which returns sometimes without naming it. Quite fun ... using the low priced meat computer, eh? There are many channels to each his own.

strange, i'm going in the opposite direction ... not trying to "drop out" ... trying instead to tune in to the world ...  my assumption being the world is "out there" ... not "in here".  I know, you have made the opposite choice.  Obviously i think i made the right choice for myself; but i have no judgement or even knowledge about the choice you made for yourself ....
... isn't it kewl that we can make such fundamentally different choices, yet still have grown up in the same family.

Incidentally this kind of dialogue is pretty much on track for this item that i Mixed Media.  When i was tinkering with insanity in the warehouse i started a project to write a book/play with that same title.  Most of the insanity is gone now ... but the title is still good as a topic to delve into. 

I was laying in bed this morning thinking semi dreaming with my eyes closed ... watching that which got made up that flitted through my consciousness ... thinking how another consciousness (different than my own) could actually enter that space ... mixed media ... no walls ... no barriers.

One does not preclude the other re:
: ... ... isn't it kewl that we can make such fundamentally different choices, yet still have grown up in the same family.

...
Leary viewed it through the distortion of drugs. Others view it through the distortion of the Media. We all view it through the distortion of our past history & our imaginations about a future.
It's all good.

Note that viewing it through the distortion of drugs vs the distortion of the media is fundamentally from different directions .... Drugs yield "distortions from within" ... from inside the body. Whereas you use your SENSES to view distortions from the media.

They are ALL distorted senses.
