The fire and the rose

Well, what I do know is that revisiting my occasional obsession with the minutae of American politics is not a good or healthy thing, so I'm banishing all things inside the beltway from the Parlour. At least for the moment.

Oh, and by the way, I wonder what our thoughts might be about recent events in the Land of Z?

Enquiring minds have been enquiring about the Intergalactica. And the blatantly wide-eyed about behind the scenes goings-on. As for me, I now have a byzantine chart tacked above my computer so I can be certain all words are assigned their proper provenance.

But there are other words, always and everywhere, and these are calling out:

Quick now, here, now, always—
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)
And all shall be well and
All manner of thing shall be well
When the tongues of flame are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one.

[One more translation has been added to the Library. It has to do with an incident that's being reported widely in the Mexican press, and the local JBG wanted to simply set the record straight.]

Multipolar Unity or Indipolarity

Not sure what is happening in the land of Z? But I suspect we can get too hung up on the minutiae of many different things, and praps, even the Zaps!

They're getting on with what they have to, and we must needs do the same.

As for example are the Nasa getting on in Colombia, and other genuinely indigenous progressives elsewhere, according to local conditions.

Otherwise we risk becoming bystanders, spectators and not actors in our own culture, just like everyone else, passive consumer or some such like.

So, each truly indigenous/holistic movement adapts itself accordingly.

While simultaneously keeping an eye on, and jamming together in, the intergalactic search, for the Universals behind which we might,


With Love,
Your Knight

I still think there is a power struggle within the Zaps and I admit feeling disappointed by the latest move(s) of El Sup.

So, it seems to me they are making life difficult for all their outside supporters. Why? To punish them? Jealousy maybe (were the FZLN achieving more?). Whatever it smacks of reverse racism and spoiled brat's tantrums.

Sorry Marcos, I think you're on the wrong tack.

And to think he refers to Intergalactica but at the same time insulates himself within the Zap communities with no one admitted except by invitation :^) What a nice contradiction!
