Incantation

Our bodies and minds translate everything we experience into pulsations, rhythms, songs, and we weave these individual sounds together to create the appearance of a coherent experience. Like all music though, just as there is the original sound, as much depends on the listener as the sound.

Our mental functions, our language, our biology follow patterns that remain consistent on all scales. The examples of fractal repetition are endless and the reason incantations are repeated is they represent this expressive process taking place in a way that our attention can readily keep track of.

Repeated Phrases

A pattern is fractal if it looks the same on all scales and has a quality they describe as self-similarity. Our mental functions, our language, our biology follow patterns that remain consistent on all scales. Our brain, heart and lungs… Seek More

Defrag Your Personal Observer

Math is rhythms, emotion is rhythms, more complicated than most mathematical models would allow, but quantum modeling comes close. Science seeks to bend the behavior of nature through a process of contagion. Rather than deal with the system as a… Seek More
