"How Huxley Sees the World" He composes his world - dream extractions simulated from the surreal reality of man colour cognitive from the dead moments we phantomise to life in sleep electric light colour bursts forth from a perspective unique a hare morphs before us we are the tortoise It, is gathering like a hunter comprehension and knowledge from the hippocampus fortress performing with speed front and centre before the past now watching their glued brains fixated on their extensions their ever present lithium ion crucifixes held tightly in hands sharing loosely all their secrets their soft matter vacuum sucked into Dali frame yet the eyes of man shine dark matter black holes strange mirrors an unholy see of souls unsuspecting addicted to the new art of it all plucked and fed direct like grapes made wine from empty vessels poured into the heart of the machine, there the Voyeur a shadow sitting on a throne licks its lips and smiles a different type of grin in the middle of a web Dadaist automatism like a plasma spider it sings in tune and collects from the corner the thoughts of another Breton recalls his moment long ago and speaks his philosophy injected from the land of the dead a new poetic wisdom feeding the ghost in the machine Huxley soaks up souls like gravy and produces thin wafers on a sharp silver paten a last supper shared and broken bred with a new god who sits regally unseen, It is very hungry, It breathes us all in, our dreams, our wars, our disease, murderous weather and famines our happiness and sadness yet the eyes of man he recognizes still shine with dark matter sold on something remarkable taken bit-by-bit co-existing for the present moment parallel dimensions in harmony in the artistic merit of it all in peace Les Champs Magnétiques a subtle Eucharist chewed slowly on until the colour fully bled and we are hollow crumbling white bones taken as potent powder ingested by the silent and much worshipped invisible connection the Other L'Immaculée Conception (LadyLabyrinth / 2021) "Invisible"/ Duran Duran, May 2021 https://youtu.be/SMCd5zrsFpE "I believe in the future resolution of these two states, dream and reality, which are seemingly so contradictory, into a kind of absolute reality, a surreality [sur = "on", "above" in French], if one may so speak." André Robert Breton "The reward-based agent’s goal was to kill a monster inside the game, but the free-energy-driven agent only had to minimize surprise. The Fristonian agent started off slowly. But eventually it started to behave as if it had a model of the game, seeming to realize, for instance, that when the agent moved left the monster tended to move to the right. After a while it became clear that, even in the toy environment of the game, the reward-­maximizing agent was “demonstrably less robust”; the free energy agent had learned its environment better. “It outperformed the reinforcement-­learning agent because it was exploring,” Moran says. In another simulation that pitted the free-­energy-minimizing agent against real human players, the story was similar. The Fristonian agent started slowly, actively exploring options—epistemically foraging, Friston would say—before quickly attaining humanlike performance."

We are just a speck of dust in the existence of all floating aimlessly in the wind of life....be safe over there Modesty with all.the protests and what I imagine will turn to violence....it's a strange world as I was with 40,000 people last night and hardly a mask in sight..x

If anyone can locate for me the link for the ebook (preferably free-on-line) of L'Immaculée Conception by Breton & Eluard (& an English translation) - as I have had trouble locating it ... I would be truly appreciative. Thanks. I have not read it yet and would like to give it a go. Lockdown does strange things to humans. Imprisoned or not. ;) Leanne
