The Storm
"In this reality that we are in, this technologic-religious-industrial civilization is mining. It’s a mining civilization, it’s about mining. It’s about energy…They mine the being part of being human by imprinting the perception of reality that they imprint into human consciousness at birth. And then they mine the being part of being human by how they program the human to perceive reality. And take that being part of human and turn it into a form of energy to run a system. We’re fuel…In my reality, that’s what’s going on.”

Johnny Apple Seed Meditates on Modified Mitosis, Genomes and Popped Corn 

The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.

Sun in the Twelfth House
Anya Means Collection

What I am trying to do when I use symbols is to awaken in your unconscious some reaction. I am very conscious of what I am using because symbols can be very dangerous. When we use normal language we can defend ourselves because our society is a linguistic society, a semantic society. But when you start to speak, not with words, but only with images, the people cannot defend themselves.

Alejandro Jodorowsky

Blameless Socrates Pokes Saturn in the Eye

Information is not knowledge. Knowledge is not wisdom. Wisdom is not truth. Truth is not beauty. Beauty is not love. Love is not music. Music is the Best..

Dada burla and the hot booty poem

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

 Ladies and gentleman, by way of introduction, this is a film about trickery, fraud, about lies. Tell it by the fireside or in a marketplace or in a movie, almost any story is almost certainly some kind of lie. But not this time. This is a promise. For the next hour, everything you hear from us is really true and based on solid fact.

From May 23, 2012 to June 1, 2012 there was an extra archaic transit that passed through Missoula, Montana. The transit appeared to heighten human echolocation and caused synchronicity to occur briefly. Like most beautiful and unusual signals totem transit left as soon as it arrived.

'Let us not forget we are painters, not men of science. Fishing in the depths of the unconscious furnished us with images, not steps having cure or deliverance as their aim.
Practicing automatism is much like going fishing; you never know wheather you will bring home a fish or an old boot.'

Missoula Primitives is subterranean, outsider and an independent art from the Garden City. Missoula is the weird art capital of Montana, known for it's free thinkers, artists and strong individualists. 

Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men’s reality. Weird heroes and mould-breaking champions exist as living proof to those who need it that the tyranny of ‘the rat race’ is not yet final.”

Hunter S. Thompson
