All Living Protoplasm Matters ...
when we talk not merely of biologic bodies, there is a question of what eats and what is eaten. When i write a screen play and others produce it, they certainly have consumed my play. They have eaten it. But have they eaten me?
I also ran into something in the commentaries which was about the 8 & 90 rules of art:
#1 – don’t haggle
#2(?) – don’t confuse the thing with the name of the thing ← good advice, eh?
but thing is … er … what am i doing here with what i am saying ? Contemplate, if you will, just where the signs you think are such a very trivial part of what is happening end, and that which they signify begins.
What if there were no signs?
symbols are signs.
of course, i have almost always used the term “sign” here to indicate something more general than the trivial street signs that you seem to mockingly associate with my comments.
i look at signification (#signs) as an #associations of things outside of #being’s to things inside of beings. That those associations appear mostly to be quite arbitrarily assigned in context … almost willy nilly … is a reality that at times is hard to digest.
Contemplate in this context, if you will, the practice you recently discovered called “reversal of signfication” ← i’ll double check that sign in a moment.seth

Compare & contrast the hysteria & media slant over Charlottesville with the Black Lives Matter riots.
i do not see what comparing two kinds of riots has to do with this subject … er, except for some association in your mind … as i am not any good at reading your mind, you tell me what association there you are trying to draw.
what do you mean by that statement. Charlene & I visited the National Cathedral in DC – presumed non denominational. Awe inspiring & majesty prevailed not crawling with anything.
for example … contemplate if you will … just how much of the internal experiences of those in this Chruch are crawling on these dramatic and awe inspiring #signs …
If you are looking for signs, signs everywhere about social stuff the first place to look for it is inside YOU. The next place is probably the M$M & M$ocialM .
well i made up “crawling on” as a term because i don’t remember one being used exactly in this context. i meant to imply that the aware interaction was of and just between the signs themselves … rather than in the realm of being in this diagram.
← the essence of a sign.
i don’t really need my mind to go looking to be aware of signs
any more than a fish needs to go looking for water …
or a bird to go looking for wind.
Well everything in #NYC is over the top humongous.
#StPatricksCathedral is right across 5th Avenue from the giant Atlas in front of Rockefeller center.
and was impressed by ...
not by to what they pointed.
… here is the one sign across the street from the other one.
seems if you have those beliefs i mentioned above, then you become aware that what happens outside yourself is represented (as #signs) inside yourself. if you are “one with everything” (in sync with it, there being no separation between you and it) then seems to me that you would not have any conflict with it … no #RWG with it … no frustration with it not seeing your point … no need to mock it. But we both know that is not the case. Paradox, eh?
you seem to deny that of yourself. somehow we must not be talking about the same thing, or you are a radically different kind of being than am i.
this is not about comparing you powers or perceptions or whatever to mine. this is just simply about understanding the human perdicament and agreening that we understand it the same way … or knowing that there is some basic difference between you and i.
incidentally i can learn about a stranger, i can interact with them, i can share more and more experiences with them … the more that i do, then the less they are outside of me .. and the more we are, as you put it, “all one” … especially when the interaction is positive and compliments or reinforces. that is all great … i love it when it happens … but that is not what i am talking about.
