Death is the great equalizer, and all change is heat death, a.k.a. entropy.
Well, maybe this small stuff is a bit boring? Shall I release the kraken? The deep pulls in the blue.
We have a deep seated memory of everything we have ever believed, and one of those things is the idea that if we bleed enough, if we suffer enough, whatever is in charge will be satisfied and go away for a time. Have any of you not entertained this notion, if just marginally?
This is dispater, Moloch, the Under Father, Lord of Despair, Hades, oh, it’s a very old being, the Grey Face. I bet you dream of it.
I think I have seen that face. Yes, this being has a great deal of sway in the blue. It’s a rather evolved intelligence and has been thinking even bigger now. Grey Face loves the internet, finds many eager and angry recruits, plenty of minds eager to flay lost hearts, but there are others. There is also the model, Pygmalion bride, Aphrodite, Lilith, all the same being. The allure and fear of romance, and despite how much people protest that romance is dead, it’s still very much alive.
Now, Aphrodite looks more like the leering model on the billboard, or the contemptuous dominatrix, and well, she reconciled with Vulcan, industry. There is nothing much that is seen as beautiful of itself these days is there?
Certainly not in mass media. So Aphrodite accepts Vulcan gifts. The fruits of industry are accepted as good enough to satisfy the love starved heart. This makes a good partnership between the two of them. They both feed richly. This sound crazy?
Shall we talk about delirium? Loki, Coyote, Exu, Satan, the madness behind all desire or so they say. But no, Pan also known as Dionysus specializes, really. He specializes in your fear of meaninglessness. Whenever confronted with that you will reach for any vice you can, anything to change your state of mind, any port in the storm. This is the real hell fire that nothing really means anything, that nothing has ever mattered. So how much are people worshipping Pan? How common is the party scene?
Very. Have we had enough of the old gods? Or should I explore more? Would you say the old gods are dead?
I don’t think they are. Shall I explore more? Or shall we find our way both deeper in and out of this mess?
Let’s go deeper.
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
