New Years Revolutions
    #1202752 - 01/09/03 03:35 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

On New Years Day I met a Chaos Lord* out back of my apartment building when I took out the party trash. He was going through the dumpster with an intense sort of energy.

I asked him what he saw for the future and he said he figured ?we?ve got about a decade left to go before crunch time.? Which is as tight a way of talking about the eschaton as possible. Crunch Time. The Crunch of Time. Concrescence. Time, not as a fluid, but as peanut brittle. Fractal peanut brittle. We all know the taste of it. It?s nuts!

The Chaos Lord spoke Spanish AND Cree. And English, of course, else I wouldn?t have understood him. Drove a hard line in Metaphor, too.

He talked of the trees, or perhaps the Tree, the World-Tree, Axis Mundi, Yggdrasil, whatever, and how it?s always warm, even while winter rages. ?Just feel the bark and you?ll see.? And by gGod, I believed him. ?Straight snow-melt water?ll kill ya ?ventually. No nourishment. Mix a little sap with the water you melt down from snow. Dig into the tree as far as you can and drain off the sap. Smash it with a rock if you have to.?

Smash it with a rock if you have to. Christ.

He then proceeded to draw diagrams in the snow for me, illustrating various survival methods. I have forgotten these and the snow has since melted. But somewhen I know and in fact am surviving quite nicely, drinking holy Tree-water and munching on scavenged ideas in my ice shelter...

I gave him a big sweater, a scarf from the Gap that I hated, a thermal coffee travel mug and an unopened tin of mixed nuts.

Then I went inside and fell over in astonishment.

Happy New Year, y?all!
