a distant neck of the words

Sacred art is electrodes
to the temples, gives any

surface the illusion of
depth for both art lover

& the casual browser. It is
something of a cinematic

essay-memoir, an apparent
parallax shift crafted from

the finest fabrics & an expo-
nent of the power function.

A line from Emmeline Pankhurst

I find it so cool that I'm able, in
this way, to connect with people
I admire & can learn from. It's
not perfect by any means. There

are always some podcasts that
I can't listen to — those that
come down on the robotic
rather than the organic side

of the line; the ones that are
obnoxiously overbearing; or are
made just to score political points
& are intended entirely for men.

Today the
postman brought
me a diktat from
the Governor of
Texas stating
that Hurricane
Harvey was an
act of God in-
telligently de-
signed to either

drive illegal
immigrants out
& onto the high-
ways where they
can be caught by
the Border Patrol
will be staying open
for business—or

to keep them in
their homes, too
frightened to risk
venturing out be-
cause of the afore-
mentioned B. P.
personnel, & thus
likely to become
a statistic in two
lists; that of the

dead, & that of
the ever-decreasing
number of paper-
less people still
living in the state.
He closes by saying
how great it is to
see the President's
policies working.

Noh "no action"

Sometimes spectators of the Noh say that the moments of "no action" are the most enjoyable. This is one of the actor's secret arts. Dancing and singing, movements on the stage, and the different types of miming are all acts performed by the body. Moments of "no action" occur in between. When we examine why such moments without action are enjoyable, we find that it is due to the underlying spiritual strength of the actor which unremittingly holds the attention. He does not relax the tension when the dancing or singing comes to an end or at intervals between the dialogue and the different types of miming, but maintains an unwavering inner strength. This feeling of inner strength will faintly reveal itself and bring enjoyment. However, it is undesirable for the actor to permit this inner strength to become obvious to the audience. If it is obvious, it becomes an act, and is no longer "no action". The actions before and after an interval of "no action" must be linked by entering the state of mindlessness in which the actor conceals even from himself his own intent. The ability to move audiences depends, thus, on linking all the artistic powers with one mind.

L'Aube à Cayenne (Series Magritte #314)

The transition to full horti-
culture comes at a cost. A
six-hour flight, custom-built
containers, the whole year
as a graph where the darker

blue shadings represent the
twilight phases. Vasectomy

in robotics plus a coordinated
script have demonstrated good

outcomes—complete health
solutions controlled by the
human mind & tailored to go

gins again at the Space Center.
