There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music in its roar: I love not man the less, but Nature more. ---Lord Byron

    Surprise, surprise
    It's a great feeling knowing that you can still surprise yourself. I recently made a comment where I said something that I don't necessarily regret, but something that remains in my shadow of uncertainty. I don't write too often but when I do it's usually a constant flow of ideas, only stopping to try to say something ever so eloquently about something so vague. I find that in this stream of thought of directing my consciousness into a sort of singularity, resulting in an outpour of wild ideas, that I surprise myself.

    These "ideas" aren't really mine but all of ours. It's because of my self-association with Space Collective that they ever came about. Actually, it's because of something that happened months ago, even years ago, that any of this ever happened. How remarkable! This hyperconnectedness between all of us has really churned up the Wholy Soul within me. These changes are so amazing that I just wish to share them with everyone so we can all fall in love with this brilliant game that is existence!

    But that's where the problem lies. How can we share this…feeling? I can try to explain it, but most of the time jumble comes out, and when I show someone an assortment of Space Collective posts they seem to barely leave a mark.

    Yes! :D

    "How can we share this"
    I run into this problem all the time as well. Especially if the concepts are a bit complex... I'm not very good with explaining these things verbally, sans reference, so people usually just stare like so:

    It's so frustrating. But maybe this is the shifting... it's like this story FastT linked to (I'll create a synapse), some of us will just take longer to come along.

    I am trying to answer that question in my work now! I'm going to make a post soon that relates to stuff I've been doing with "mystical language" and Kafka, insofar as he employs apophatic devices.

    Olena, I've been so busy with finals. I have not forgotten about your question/s about Buddhism and stuff. I'll get to them soon enough.

    Also, I'm happy this has been synapsed to that story, as language can be modeled as a seduction (I will put together a post on this too because I already have quite a bit of writing on it) with some really interesting results that provide insight into the nature of language itself, namely its constituent potential to fail.

    I really wish my job was Space Collective. I generally learn much more from perusing this site, and contributing to it, than I do from doing my homework, although class often points me in fruitful directions. Here, there is always something that I can get genuinely excited about.
