Can you give us a bit of a chronological time-frame for ogham script? Neo-lithic? Ah, well the exact origin hasn’t been firmly established, but to date the presence of the ogham script has been traced as far back as two centuries BC. In fact, it’s commonly believed that a lot of the found examples of ogham were coded messages to those still loyal to their old ways, easily read by those they intended to, but indecipherable to Roman authorities. Though these were by no means the only examples, and the same characters are also found in clothing and tools not… Seek More
Much of the world’s oldest lore is difficult to fully comprehend in our era, difficult but not impossible. Tonight we are talking about the ogham script, the written form of the old Irish language. It is thought of as a “tree” script for two reasons. Many of its characters are named after trees, and the form the characters take resemble the forked branches of a tree. If this is all we knew understanding it would be hopeless. This is not all we know. We have a body of stories and lore which was the basis of the collective works of… Seek More
Magical thought taught us that when man becomes predatory beast, it’s a bad thing. Werewolf. What does science seem to want to make humans? Describe humans as? They are busy working on ways to “bait” the hairless monkey, and they are having some success. I’m sort of lingering on the notion of self-expression when it is a reaction to so many external inputs. Almost like creativity has exhaust qualities to it like this is in some ways, unhealthy, that perhaps self-expression needs to be a focused choice rather than a bestial outburst. I fully agree with that insight. The system… Seek More
They are discovering a great deal about the behaviour of the human mind. They will very likely unearth all the “science” there is to have from it. They will not understand the mind or its functions without art. It will have to be an art first and foremost. It is the core order. Art helps to make the ideas relatable? So they aren’t so frightening. Art is human nature. People make stuff up. They imagine everything. They will never be able, nor is it even necessary or good if they could be able, to remove that aspect of themselves, but they… Seek More
Magic, art and religion were the sum body of human knowledge for quite some while. Each body of knowledge evolved, and as human experience of the world and each other grew, these understandings changed. Religion gave rise to secular law, and really still does. Art gave rise to philosophy and a great many cultural movements. This is why we say a scholar has a bachelor of arts degree or a doctor of philosophy (aka a PhD) and magic gave rise to the sciences. So here we are today. At war? Yes. Now I ask you, why is that? As humanity… Seek More
More than a few of the world cultures have no word for religion. They actually use their word for law, and community cohesion revolved around the insights held by the priests. In some cultures artists and priests were allies where the spirit behind the cultures law nurtured the spirit of the artist. Then they sought to express their personal relationship to the world as they knew it in their community and as described by the members of their society. In these cultures, the creation of images was generally not shunned. In other cultures, the artists were the first heretics. As… Seek More
Why do we do anything at all? We do things to feel good? Yes. We live in a living world, and the ways of our world lead to changes in our world, changes in body and mind. It’s inescapable. But I must ask, would you want to escape it if you could? No, variety is the spice of life. I would get bored without escape. The companion process in our lives that has always interacted with art is law. It always has impacted art and it always will. What do you perceive to be the relationship between art and law?… Seek More
