O thou that settest out upon The Path, false is the
Phantom that thou seekest. When thou hast it
thou shalt know all bitterness, thy teeth fixed in
the Sodom-Apple.
Thus hast thou been lured along That Path, whose
terror else had driven thee far away.
O thou that stridest upon the middle of The Path, no
phantoms mock thee. For the stride's sake thou
stridest.
Thus art thou lured along That Path, whose fascina-
tion else had driven thee far away.
O thou that drawest toward the End of The Path,
effort is no more. Faster and faster dos thou fall;
thy weariness is changed into Ineffable Rest.
For there is not Thou upon That Path: thou hast
become The Way.

The Sodom-Apple is an uneatable fruit found in the desert.

"Pilgrims" words(and music) by Peter hamill 1976

Sometimes you feel so far away,
distanced from all the action of the play,
unable to grasp significance,
marking the plot with diffident dismay,
stranded at centre stage,
scrabbling through your diary for a lost page:
unsure of the dream.
Kicking a stone across the beach,
aching for love and comfort out of reach;
the way ahead seems to be so bleak,
there's no-one with any friendship left to speak
or show you any relation
between your present and future situations...
lost to the dream.

Away, away, away - look to the future day
for hope, some form of peace
within the growing storm.

I climb through the evening, alive and believing
in time we shall all know our goals and so, finally, home;
for now, all is secret - though how could I speak it,
allow me the dream in my eye!
I've been waiting for such a long time
just to see it at last,
all of the hands tightly clasped,
all of us pilgrims.

Walking in silence down the coast,
merely to journey, here hope is the most,
merely to know there is an end;
all of us, lovers, brothers, sisters, friends
hand in hand....
Shining footprints on the wet sand
lead to the dream.

The time has come, the tide has almost run
and drained the deep:
I rise from lifelong sleep.

It seems such a long time I've dreamed -
now, awake, I can see
we are pilgrims and so must walk this road,
unknown in our purpose, alone, but not worthless,
and home ever calling us on.
We've been waiting here for so long,
all of our hands joined in hope,
holding the weight on the rope -
all of us pilgrims.*

* pls DO listen to the music and words to this "song", it's from a Vander graff generator album called "Still Life"

Is the (aquarian, illu) conspiracy a good thing in your view? Is it hierchial?

Would it be a pro or a con for the human race to share a unity mind space and therefore becoming open without being able to have secrets? Or would it be fascist? Would it mold our colorful human aliens into mindless drones (borgs)?

Maybe its the only way to go considering the present state. What do you think, if you do?

eta: sorry but i just realized i pulled it off topic. i should get sleep.
