Blinded by the light…..
Thinking about the general in-version of everything in our current states, where, in true double-speak fashion, good is bad, up is down, right is right and left is wrong… war is peace and peace is boring…
It struck me that we have a rather shady view of light and dark, if you pardon the pun.
light fades colours. that is what got me thinking. Put anything in the sun for a few days and it’s colours dis-appear. Now why would that be. Where do the colours go?
Once dyed in the wool, aren’t they an intrinsic part of the fabric? What holds colour and what is it in bright sun-light that takes them away?
Does Sunlight eat colour? Really, think about it?
Kept in the dark, anything will re-tain it’s colours for-ever. Millenia even.
hmmmmm…. so light eats colours. makes sense since pure white light is the perfect mix of the spectrum.
Dessication. We are creatures of water, and the sun dessicates us.
light through a drop of water breaks into it’s individuated spectral mix.
There is something here, i have my finger on it, but not well enough to feel a strong pulse.
In the dark, growth happens. Growth always happens in dark, secreted places. Caves, wombs, the veins of the earth….Darkness is moist, fecund…
Sunshine time is to gather energy and convert. It is transformational, not nurturing.
Then in the night, in a maximum of 7% reflected light from the sun, growth happens…creation happens.
is this why the ancients venerated the Moon over the Sun?
I mean, how come the moon can completely and perfectly occult the sun on a perfect eclipse as above? Did you know that the moon is exactly 1/400 the size of the sun and the Sun/Moon distance is exactly 1/4oo times the Sun/Earth distance? What are the chances eh?
But that besides, darkness is nurturing and creative, Sunlight is energizing and destructive.
If a candle was never lit, it would never burn out but then again, neither would it ever be alive.
Everlasting life is everlasting darkness.
hmmmmm…. I can feel the pulse now.
life, Light, Darkness, death.
Which en-folds which?
Cycles, pulses, waves, en-foldment, un-foldment, growth, decay, energy…..
