This’ll be a slow ride. So let me just say, Morrison-Huxley Effect in the internal search engine, Sir!

Oh My God! Everybody Panic! hahahahahaha he says tucking his imp back into its bottle, Takeshi Kitano is a genius, and shrugs on his long dark cloak, now where was I? Oh that’s right,

“Only ignorance denies these facts.” Carl Jung.

I’ve traced it as far back as this youtuber, Valarauko and I would like to keep track of where it goes from here as an viral internet truth contagion exercise to modulate the Morrison-Huxley Effect, he said, stroking his whiskers and turning back to the bed, sshhh, good night, my love, i shall be prowling the dark streets like a cat quietly in pursuit of the objectives of his owner,

Magic, Poetry, Time,

When I meet someone new I often wish them a fantabulous day full of tiny miracles like unexpected flowers blooming but is rare for wishes to come true. Hayley tells me that this morning the lilies in the garden all bloomed and she has had flowers delivered from Interflora from her boss for her birthday. And Hayley is a paranormal researcher. Synchronicities are signposts.

I have a theory which in my mad mind explains all such oddnesses and underpins my belief in magic and particularly in the magic of poetry. Time is not linear. Our poor human brains are linear, limited in their perceptive abilities to one chronological strand. Language (or at least boring old prose like this) is linear and so not very good at explaining what nonlinear time looks like but I imagine an old pond, frog jumps in, kerplunk, to translate Matsuo Basho. (concentric circles emanating from the tao through which ginga moves, a wave animating the human heart)

If time is not linear then all ghosties, synchronicities, nonlinear causality, miracles, inklings, become flashes of perception beyond the usual processing power of us mere humans. And poetry which works through echoes, rhythm and rhyme, confluence and divergence, intuition and the image, is how language escapes lineality. So I can make a big statement and say poetry is a better description of the world than this mundane prose because magic is a better explanation of a nonlinear universe than linear causality and poetry transcends linear time.

Oh, and in case you are thinking, my what a crazy person, with his nonlinear time, may I introduce Mr Albert Einstein, “…for us physicists believe the separation between past, present, and future is only an illusion, although a convincing one.”

Have a fantabulous day full of tiny joyous miracles like unexpected flowers blooming,
gingaTao! (a greeting, a toast, a blessing…
