The human body is an inescapable hull
You are trapped inside the world.
The trap is a prison and a protection.
Shining beacons of hope into corners of darkness,
huddling together in the refuse of a damaged and cruel landscape,
the red eyes of vultures shining in the heavy blanket of darkness;
the darkness of spirit and truth and integrity.
who can destroy the harsh mechanics of a world of darkness?
who can dismantle the ongoing conspiracy of false truths?
A device which is more sensitive than specific.
High sensitivity implies the ability to interpret vast ranges of subjects.
A sensitive thing.
Detects threats where there are none to avoid threats which do exist.
Degrees of sensitivity correlate to degrees of abrasion.
Wounds form over time.
Emotive materialism is where the materials are informed by their own psychic energy.
Currents of emotive energy that already belong to the world
A frozen lake might appear different to a human than a cat, because perception is subjective.
The lake is expressing itself, its temperature, its size, how it reflects a cloudy day. It is a lake and it is being a lake.
And again, love and light for a world dying in darkness.
A memory of a lost and forgotten time.
people are pathetic and do horrible things
