Lovecraft and Lynch, Eldritch Horror

Lovecraft states that his creation of a story is to suspend natural law yet, at the same time, he indexes the tenuousness of such laws, suggesting the vast possibilities of the cosmic.  The tension that Lovecraft sets up between his own fictions and the universe or nature as we know it is reproduced within his fictions in the common theme of the unreliable narrator, unreliable precisely because they are either mad or what they have witnessed questions the bounds of material reality.  Despite Lovecraft's  invocations of illusion, he is not claiming that his fantastic creations such as the Old Ones are supernatural, but following Joshi, only super-normal.  One can see that instead of nullifying realism Lovecraft in fact opens up the real to an unbearable degree.

Vincent van Gerven Oei, Continent

Eldritch Horror is a board game where you play a Lovecraftian hero (occult researcher, antiquarian, private detective, esoteric blogger, etc) who, with the rest of their team struggles to close gates, solve mysteries of the Ancient Ones and not go insane or die.  Its an excellent game and is genuinely scary - light some candles, acquire 1920s costumes, put Radio Dismuke or Cryochamber on and you're there - its does justice to the writer and his genre. The other night we were brutally defeated for the second time by Yog Sothoth and for our just desserts we watched Episode 1 of the new Twin Peaks season both of which contributed to a night of highly disturbed sleep.

There are all kinds of influences on Lynch - Kubrick, Hitchcock, Brecht, etc - but to my mind its the Lovecraftian that has been magnified more than the others in this season.  When Secret Sun talks about a metaphysics of evil, sure. Its the evil of beings who live above a convenience store from the perspective of the foodstuff on its shelves. To be fair if you have never studied you are not going to get Lynch, a man whose esoteric knowledge is clearly encyclopedic - and even if you have he is going to fire more than a few curve balls at you. For instance without a working knowledge of the Hermetic Qabalah, whatever its true value, you are going to miss the Vision of the Machinery of the Universe, in the purple oceanic/galactic dreamworld of retrocausal time in Yesod and the portal to ''Earth'' through actual machinery - like car cigarette lighters and plug sockets.  The light beings transfer between worlds through gas and electricity.  The brain/neurone tree is featured in the sections of the Metabolism of Time that deal with the Jay.  The tesselated floor of the waiting room, with the curtains being blown back to reveal the white horse are clear depictions of the environment of astral travel.  These are real places.  They are part of the physiology of the universe made necessary by the Metabolism of Time. You have to perform astral travel to get to them but if you are one of those so-called magicians who doesn't include this work in their practice then SHAME! you are missing the best bits.

The Sycamore Grove from the second season is a Lovecraftian gate into the Supernormal.  Cooper physically leaves through it and is physically replaced by a Doppleganger.  Although the beings of the astral are clothed in flesh and colour underneath they are composed of physical light.  This is where Supernormality can really gain ground, you don't need to lose sight of the so-called physical in your quest for spirituality (this is a common damaging misconception in esoteric circles), the spiritual is not another different dimension, its an extension of this one, or rather ours is an extension of that - an inclusive physics, a pan-psychic physics would see this.  The problem with the words physical and material are that they imply this fairly boring scientific materialist worldview espoused by Dawkins et al but these guys have no idea what is really going on - in choosing an authority on the nature of reality I would go with Lynch. When Professor Hawking begged us all to shut the fuck up for a second so we are not devoured by a lurking space horror he is beginning to understand the potential for a supernormal metaphysics of evil.  Do we really think alien, possibly demonic, beings fly here like so much spam in a can?  They project like we do and are just way better at it.  If you want to get really far out, their ''ships'' don't ''fly'' what the ''ships'' actually do is move us or places to them.  Those ''ships'' are their equivalent of chaospheres, or cells of consciousness, or Iamblichean celestial spheres or whatever you want to call this asset all esoteric traditions share and which is actually a fundamental part of our own extended physiology and of which most remain unaware trapped as they are thinking themselves 3d objects in a 3d world.  I know this can be difficult to understand but you are in your own ship right this second.  Its been 25 years since Twin Peaks and the 80th anniversary of our master of darkness H.P. Lovecraft's death - now is as good a time as any to redouble your esoteric efforts.

“What do we know,” he had said, “of the world and the universe about us? Our means of receiving impressions are absurdly few, and our notions of surrounding objects infinitely narrow. We see things only as we are constructed to see them, and can gain no idea of their absolute nature. With five feeble senses we pretend to comprehend the boundlessly complex cosmos, yet other beings with a wider, stronger, or different range of senses might not only see very differently the things we see, but might see and study whole worlds of matter, energy, and life which lie close at hand yet can never be detected with the senses we have. I have always believed that such strange, inaccessible worlds exist at our very elbows, and now I believe I have found a way to break down the barriers. I am not joking. Within twenty-four hours that machine near the table will generate waves acting on unrecognised sense-organs that exist in us as atrophied or rudimentary vestiges. Those waves will open up to us many vistas unknown to man, and several unknown to anything we consider organic life. We shall see that at which dogs howl in the dark, and that at which cats prick up their ears after midnight. We shall see these things, and other things which no breathing creature has yet seen. We shall overleap time, space, and dimensions, and without bodily motion peer to the bottom of creation.

From Beyond, H.P. Lovecraft

Chaos Protocols and Financial Sorcery

Nam Zid Tara walked by Enlil who said to him:  ''Where have you come from?''
''From Enlil's Temple.  My turn of duty is finished.  I serve at the place of the Gudu priests, with their sheep. I am on my way home now.  Don't stop me; I am in a hurry. Who are you who asks me questions?''
''I am Enlil'' - he had changed his appearance to that of a raven and was croaking.
''You are not a raven you are really Enlil!''
''How did you recognise that I am Enlil who decrees the destinies?''
'"When your uncle En Me Cara was a captive, after taking for himself the rank of Enlil, said 'Now I shall know the fates, like a lord.'''
''You may acquire precious stones, you may acquire cattle or sheep, but the days of a human being are always numbered so where does your wealth lead?  Now, I am indeed Enlil who decrees the fates, what is your name?''
''My name is Nam Zid Tara (well blessed).''
''Your fate shall be assigned according to your name: Leave the house of your masters and your heirs shall regularly come and go in my temple.'' declared Enlil.
The Raven of Enlil

One of the best moments of last year's Occulture was the phone hangout of Gordon White and Jason Miller - both prominent esoteric authors and both with books out on Financial Magic.  I wanted to comment at the time but didn't feel I could because I didn't own a copy of Chaos Protocols and had worked with Financial Sorcery.  I enjoy head to head debates and arguments rather than the more friendly podcasts that are put out by Runesoup and its nice to see authors challenged and stretched by each other while remaining in civil discourse as opposed to handling sycophancy, lunacy, politics, ''chat'' and newbies on social or otherwise media - i.e.  peer battle as opposed to teachers/students authors/fans dynamic.

On Financial Sorcery, Jason Miller certainly knows his audience, and the book provides practical (non-magickal) advice on managing finances that the readers may not otherwise read unless it was presented in a sorcery book.  Miller often rails against the money shy pagan/occultist demographic fully aware that a lot of them struggle to realise their goals and make their life dreams come true because of their own aversion to dealing with their often gruesome financial reality - whether it be ignoring their debt or ''hating capitalism''.  Although my financial situation is solid and I don't need the majority of the muggly advice, the magickal aspects of the book especially the selection of Jupiterian sigils are absolute dynamite.  From my perspective the rest of the book is wrapping paper and that is not to disparage the writing but just to raise the spirit work that Miller has done to its proper level.  I would recommend buying the book for nothing more than those sigils as long as you are planning to use them.

I managed to avoid Amazon for a long time (they didn't deliver in this part of the world) but it is certainly taking its toll on my wallet now and without it I wouldn't be able to comment on the second book - Chaos Protocols.  This is more my kind of book - although its more practical than I expected White is not beyond waxing theoretic (which I like) and contains inspirational rhetoric that hits its target. Although I would argue against the ''probabilistic universe'' model these days, it was certainly my go to understanding of reality for the majority of time working with practical magic and I can understand why it is the dominant way of seeing things.  I enjoyed seeing some of White's esoteric toolkit laid out in the way it was and comparing and contrasting with my own and I think some fascinating points are raised at the end in the extremely brief Annunaki section that we will not see discussed to the depth that they would enjoy, at least in public.  One of the central arguments between Miller and White was Jupiter vs Trickster Gods as to who is the superior ally in the current economic climate and at the time I wrote a somewhat spirited defence of Jupiter.  I didn't know about this ''Annunaki'' section in Chaos Protocols and, truth be told, as part of the Gentlemen for Jupiter I have never worked with Jupiter the deity but only ''the current'' and always under the auspices of Enlil, the Lord of the Annunaki. Although White seemingly has a different take on what is meant by the Annunaki (more of the ancient aliens conspiratorial version or rather that this is something can be tapped into chaos magic style) and seems to be doing different magic to me there is a lot of room for exploration.  If you haven't stepped out of the Western ''comfort zone'' of Greek, Roman, Celtic and Norse and dabbled in Ancient Mesopotamian pantheons you may find such endeavours rewarding on all sorts of levels. Just sayin'... I also find this work to beautifully dovetail with my work in Sefer Yetzirah.  The more interesting argument in this kind of discussion might be Enlil vs Enki as opposed to Jupiter vs Mercury.

Which one to buy?  If you're totally broke then neither - buy a sandwich.  If you have enough money for one and you need it to be an investment that will save your ass then you should buy Financial Sorcery.  It contains the right mixture of down-to-earth advice and magic that would get you on your feet again - but make sure you find a way of using the sigils.   If you have wiggle room buy them both to compare and contrast as anyone will always get more out of that than following only one source of advice.

My own approach to financial work was different to the majority of the Gentlemen for Jupiter.  While I used a Miller sigil for one project I broke with the Rufus Opus style mash-up ritual that was popular at the time and focussed entirely on Liber Astarte vel Berylli* to forge an intimate relationship with Enlil whom I also evoked often in the best Sumerian I can manage.  I accompanied this with around thirty pathwalkings (physical and astral) based on the letter Gimel - hard and soft - and theatrical ritual (staging plays) with a focus on ''Jupiterian'' symbolism to connect more completely with the current.  This relationship led to my ongoing dialogue with Raziel which is in the most part about embracing destiny as opposed to maintaining a belief in the ''open'' probabilistic universe**. In comparing myself with other practitioners I can say my approach was not unnecessarily complicated, supported by my understanding of Sefer Yetzirah, exclusive, rigorous and consistent and it made a great deal of difference in lasting results.
Enlil's commands are by far the loftiest, his words are holy, his utterances are immutable! The fate he decides is everlasting, his glance makes the mountains anxious, his... reaches into the interior of mountains.  All the Gods of the Earth bow down to Father Enlil, who sits comfortable upon his dais, the lofty engur, to Nunamnir, whose lordship and princeship are most perfect.  The Annunaki enter before him and obey his instructions perfectly.

*Say what you like about this new crop of authors but they're not Aleister Crowley.
**This is more complicated than this sentence can do justice and has been discussed in great length in the posts labelled time travel.  The important correctives are that your decisions, whatever they may be, largely aggregate into the same end results which gives you ''probabilistic'' type freedom only at certain moments and only on to other fixed linear narratives and that the rest of the ''probabilistic'' universe is a dead void.  A metro system is probably the best way of understanding it from our 3d point of view.

Time Travel - Alice in the Aftermath

  • Synchronicities 
  • Branching Moment
  • Desynchronous Time-holes

As you recede from the robust branching moment you enter into a period of desynchronicity where the frequency of synchronicities decrease and/or their nature changes.  In my earlier thinking I referred to the ''surprise'' phenomena of this period as time-holes (sudden blasts from the past) and a feature of Venutian work as opposed to syncs which I saw primarily as a feature of Mercurial work.

After my Alice synchronicity and subsequent branching moment (cinematic debut) a number of individuals got back in touch with me - an ex-girlfriend, a ex-director and my primary school teacher in one quick wave over the course of a few hours.  These events were not connected to the branching moment - coincidental meetings at pubs in local towns, trips that had been planned ages ago that were ending up in Prague.    There is some commonality between the physiognomy of the three of them - they all have heavily lidded/hooded eyes.

If the physiognomy of ''Alice'' (adrenaline/testosterone) gave some indication as to ''where'' the branching moment was happening in the Metabolism of Time (remembering/altered past) and its nature (therefore clues to advantageous action in that moment), does the physiognomy/symbolism of the time-holes post branching moment give any indication of where the line leads to next i.e. if I had chosen a different action at the branching moment would I have been confronted by a different set of ''ghosts''?

In a very esoteric reading of the Partzufim there are said to be 11 faces with 11 backsides (corresponding to the 22 letters astrological forces) - are the faces of these ghosts the back-side of the Alice face - which by an extention of the previous logic would be the physiognomy of ''forgetting'' (which does fit the nature in this case)?  In which case I would imagine the utility is decreased as they are simply the reverse side of the event I am moving away from.  However, since the future causes the past as much as the past causing the future and the two things are entangled, from a 4D perspective the backsides could be as useful but I would have to see them/everything in a different/non-linear way.

Some musings.

The Green Lion

This Oil of the Sun, enclosed in a retort hermetically sealed, you must place for elevation that it may be exalted and doubled in its degree. Then put the vessel, still closely shut, in a cool place. Thus it will not be dissolved, but coagulated. Place it again for elevation and coagulation, and repeat this three times. Thus will be produced the Tincture of the Sun, perfect in its degree. Keep this in its own place.

The Treasure of Treasures, Paracelsus the Great
The Green Lion devouring the Sun is an alchemical symbol representing what is probably the effect of sulphuric acid acquired from green iron sulphate salts dissolving gold, yielding a gold solution that can be used for plating or perhaps ingesting.  Sol is also a symbol for consciousness (the Ruach) and from the point of view of spiritual or psychological alchemy the Green Lion could be said to be the phase in which this part of the being is ''dissolved'' to allow access to the higher self (the Neschamah) - i.e. super cellular consciousness.  From another perspective Vincent Bridges discusses the importance of meteoric glass such as the green stone moldavite in the work of Renaissance alchemists.  He suggests that Bohemia is littered and infused with this prima materia which greatly contributes to the area's mystical appeal.  Although the chemical composition of moldavite is mainly aluminium oxide and silicon oxide there are other substances such as beryllium and iridium bound up in there which could be ingested were the moldavite to be dissolved, or ground to a fine powder.

As many of my good friends know I have been playing around curing myself and others with alchemical quackery for many years.  I regularly ingest colloidal silver and this combined with Vit D. supplements and allicin pills provides an extremely effective defence against infection - i.e. garlic, silver and (the biological form of) sunlight slay the undead.  I have always been curious about the effects of ingesting gold but have yet to try it. However, I have been using a moldavite rejuvenation (anti-time) amulet which I enchanted myself in the Tower through the use of the Time Phone - and this does seem to be a potent crystal to work with.

There is no doubt that humans are generally deficient in minerals and very few seem to address this as one of the causes of their medical problems.  My own life has been improved by simply taking magnesium let alone the anti-demon combo outlined above.  The soil has been over farmed and fertilizers do not replace all the trace minerals that used to reside there, food therefore no longer contains sufficient quantities of what you need.  I believe that for maximum efficacy the human being may need substances we wouldn't normally think we do - i.e. gold.  Gold is being used in all kinds of innovative ways at the moment in electronics, catalysts and medicine - who is to say our nervous, immune and a variety of different enzyme systems couldn't benefit?  One of the possible reasons behind the disappearing gold in the world may be that someone who knows better is eating it all...

As I explained the other day I have been working to transform/upgrade my temple-library to Tudorian splendour for better time travel resonance.  I went to purchase a writing desk and as I entered the antique bazaar the first thing to greet me was this Green Lion.  I purchased him, without haggling, have named him Paracelsus and am taking this materialized symbol (so fresh off the astral he was dripping Azoth) as a cue to do some things a) advance my knowledge of various forms of alchemy b) transfer this knowledge to the work I have been doing on (super) cellular consciousness and time travel and c) eat gold.  I am charging him at the moment and I have to say he is very responsive - I might even attempt to conjure the Ruach of Paracelsus into him - after all, why not? My partner, with zero knowledge of alchemy, arranged the books around him without any involvement from me (if I had been involved he would have been the centre of a cluster of magic books) and I noticed that she placed a gold book with 1666 as the title on one side and a book called The Goldfinch on the other.

Rectify until you find the true, clear Green Lion, which you will recognise by its great weight. You will see that it is heavy and large. This is the Tincture, transparent gold. You will see marvellous signs of this Green Lion, such as could be bought by no treasures of the Roman Leo. Happy he who has learnt how to find it and use it for a tincture!

Time Travel - Alice in Superposition

As I was discussing previously the Alice synchronicities I experienced the other day would have indicated a significant Alice event in the near future and this event, like all robust branching moments, would be significant enough to enable one to change track between the Fourteen Minotaurs.  So lo and behold my cinematic debut was this week in a scene that I had quite forgotten filming towards the end of the new movie Unlocked with Noomi Rapace, Orlando Bloom, John Malkovich and Michael Douglas.  I have been in a few tv shows and am the principle antagonist in a hotly anticipated video game but I had not made it to the big screen thus far. I have about 15 seconds screen time and my line is, appropriately, Alice this is for you.

If the future does not already exist and magic, as it is commonly understood, is genuine then I will have been using Alice symbols throughout my life in order to influence probability and induce Alice-related events like the above - to steer me onto a hand-crafted beneficent Alice track out of all the infinite possibilities that the future holds.  If the future does already exist then these Alice symbols are already ahead of me and behind me in my block time line and are temporally entangled forming a kind of Super Alice.  Cellular Consciousness, as it is, has practical applications whether looking at reality from a 3D matter based perspective or a 5D mind based perspective and although I understood how to run and return between these states I was aware that what I was running through was 4D. Through a series of experiments while living at Edward Kelley's Tower and through complementary esoteric work afterwards I have been groping my way towards an understanding of time travel and temporal entanglement leading to a comprehension of Super Cellular Consciousness and hopefully not insanity and death.

Often when we confront the notion of the future from a Presentist perspective (that only the present exists) we get the idea that there are infinite possible universes branching off every moment and although this feels liberating its actually fairly delusional and aggrandising.  Who can collapse a reality into a different branch with their decisions?  Humans?  Cats?  Lower life forms?  Microbes?  Are all the bacteria, fungus and parasites residing in human bodies all collapsing different reality tunnels with their decisions?  That seems ludicrous and, after reflection, so does my own capacity for making decisions in the first place.

Raziel suggests that only those universes where time travel is invented cohere and this reduces infinity, mostly hyper-dead, to an unspeakably huge but still finite number of surviving coherent realisable universes. Using a kind of anthropic principle you and your future(s) exist in one of these timelines and that instead of an infinite choice in the opportunity of any given moment you only really have two, accept or decline. Most of these decisions aggregrate into you following the same path so it doesn't matter if in a series of moments you say yes yes yes or no no no you are still heading towards the end of a linear predetermined experience.  Only at certain moments can you truly branch off into one of your alternate selves, these alternate selves also existing in timelines that culminate in time travel, the invention of time travel being defined as the death of language .

I started thinking about my genuine freedom in any given conversation and how likely I am to deviate from my lines and I realised that it was extremely unlikely.  Bearing in mind my established character and social conventions it is rare that I will stray too far from the path because often the consequences of doing so at an inopportune moment are very brutal - divorce, being sacked, getting arrested or killed, etc.  Lets say my boss wants me to do something and whether I am compliant or I resist I probably still have to do the thing in the end regardless.  Some introverts, over-represented in our community compared to the general population, really weigh everything they say because they think these individual yes and nos stockpile over time but the truth is that most people, including your boss, forget the details of the transactions within a few days and the only thing that lasts is whether the thing was done or not.  The fact that the introvert weighs everything is simply built into their established character and therefore their pre-existing script.


I just want to put a note in here, for myself more than anyone else, that the de-synchronous effects outlined in this post did happen yesterday - some days after the robust branching moment of Alice in Superposition.  The de-synchronous always has something of the time ghost to it and this time it was an ex-girlfriend and an ex-primary school teacher getting in touch with me.

Time Travel - Alice and Other Creatures of the Labyrinth

'Twas brillig and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogroves,
And the mome raths outgrabe
Alice through the Looking Glass; Lewis Carroll
Life is a series of pathways between rooms.  You can deviate from the path for a while but very soon you'll have to find a room, be it a bivouac, or a mere cliffhanging.  If you don't you'll die of exposure.  On any path you may have a series of decisions to make but whatever you decide the path will still lead to the room.  Our decisions aggregate towards the same ending - reaching the room. Rooms can be empty or there can be a guardian being. The guardian beings of the room can be your friends, partners, colleagues, bosses, enemies and are arranged in a spectrum of types emerging from the ten steps necessary in order to analyse a single moment.  When a being of a certain type is in your room a certain response will be elicited.  A simple example is being in a room with someone who is very aggressive because of high levels of testosterone - they will typically stimulate your own aggression (be it towards each other or in mutual enjoyment, watch packs of these people) or your flight response. The person has acted as a chemical messenger on the confines of your own cell of consciousness, just the like the underlying hormone they represent and how you interact with the beings on the path and in the room determine the reality of your life.

Alice in Wonderland is very important to myself and my partner.  Not only did I form a close relationship with the text and movie interpretations growing up but during my early Qabalistic studies I was in an Alice themed Kabbalah study group where I was the Mad Hatter and then went on to play Lewis Carroll in a performance in Prague.  This play was an original work featuring Lewis confronted by the real Alice Liddell as a young girl and then as an elderly woman contrasting the reality with the fantasy conceptual Alice. The other night I went to see ''Aspects of Alice'' at a blacklight theatre and this particular show featured our heroine flying over a mystical Prague and was filtered through the lense of Milan Kundera - wistful, fatalistic carnival music with erotic twists - ''The Unbearable Lightness of Wonderland''.   Our tickets were free and provided by a friend of my partners who brought someone else with her who was a physiognomical copy of the actress who played Alice in the production where I played Carroll.   When I returned home from the theatre there was a message from this actress telling me she had watched Humanity: Good Ending and thought of me.

This event returned me to a line of thought that began to crystallize during the filming of The Aftermath - a director there had been a physiognomical copy of my first esoteric mentor and, coincidentally, I recieved a message from him in my trailer - we hadn't communicated in many years. The knowledge I had allowed me to work well with the director and I was rewarded with another day, another scene and a battlefield promotion from a nameless officer to a named character - Captain Harris.  The physiogomy of the Metabolism of Time is of immense predictive value in dealing with individuals on a day to day basis - the system providing insights into their various moods, etc and how they will interact with other people of different types.  The thinking behind this use is based in presentism, i.e. my individual interactions through every moment create possibilities for me in the future - my decisions matter and I can take advantage of opportunities.  However if the future already exists, as Raziel suggests and no matter what I think I choose to do I am trapped on a path until a robust branching moment comes along how does this knowledge remain useful?  What is the Eternalist version?  How are these physiognomical predictions useful to the would be time traveller, someone who wants to see their life experience in 4d rather than 3d?

Although Raziel has been clear about there being no grand free will, no infinity of parallel universes branching off every moment and how decisions on the path largely aggregate taking you to the same destination - a significant event at a robust branching moments (vertices, rooms) - there remains the freedom to switch timelines between the finite variant selves or Fourteen Minotaurs at these moments.  At these moments there is a decision that has a significant consequence - so it is only here where the tricks are useful. Synchronicities, like the above encounter with my director amd mentor, or the plural Alice, are like sonar pings as you approach a significant event. For example, our motto for the Gentlemen for Jupiter was ''When Kingdoms Come'' and then, after quite some work, I ended up playing a lead role in the upcoming video game Kingdom Come: Deliverance - a solid ping suggesting a robust branching moment.  We should also be aware that as we leave significant events these synchroncities will decrease in frequency.

Forward, backward, inward, outward
Come and join the chase!
Nothing could be drier
Than a jolly caucus-race

Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll

What seems to being suggested by the above experiences are a) that guardian beings of the same type are temporally entangled with each other in your timeline(s) and b) that the type of guardian being reveals the underlying nature of the significant event.  To make this clearer lets look at the first example in this post - the director and the mentor were both of the Treefrog type, which is a thyroidal nature, in this case hyperthyroidal.  Features include short height, prominent slightly bulging eyes, rapid metabolism, they plunge into new environments to stimulate personal evolution, and have a strong interest in aesthetics - mainly visual arts, etc etc. Is there only one Treefrog that is in super position throughout my time line(s)?  Is there a way of gauging the frequency of the appearance of significant Treefrogs?  This Treefrog became a stimulus which my cell had to respond to and one set of reactions would have sent me down one path and another set down another - bearing in mind there are only two possible outcomes at a vertex, junction or room - yes or no/oops!  In saying yes to the Treefrog I went down a path which resulted in the extra day and in saying no or being awkward I would have been denied that.  Who knows what difference being a named character will make in my future?

Who the fuck is Alice?  Well Alice signifies many things for many people but ultimately she is on a quest for identity in a meaningless nonsensical world - Carroll could be considered the first Absurdist.  The Alices are generally a mix of adrenaline and testosterone types, which also governs the nature of their rooms, creating a huntress physiques who like to challenge boundaries (curiousity) with pre-egoic identities driven by urges and instincts.  Being at the Alice show with a clone of the actress who played Alice then recieving a message from that same actress clearly shows contact with the Alice in superposition.  If they are synch pings foreshadowing the significant event one can expect it with to take place with an Alice as the guardian and to be in some kind of Wonderland...

Do you live in the memory of a significant Alice seeing their face projected on to new friends, lovers, enemies who are like them in all but name?  Do you seek the near-clone of someone you knew, or was that Alice foreshadowing that other Alice to come?  Or are they all in super-position?

When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And the red queen's off with her head
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head, feed your head
