Immutable Parables letter to Evgueni
What's interesting about Forty Immutable Parables as it goes
to press is how so much of my literary past is echoed in this
new book both in style and in emerging vision. Joyce, Kerouac,
and Salinger influences are joined by Lynch, Kubrick, and Eisenstein.
Echoes of Harvest of Gems volume 3 are mixed in with new material
that bounces off these previous echoes and then boldly pushes
the emerging vision forward into the future and out into space.
Journey South segment in Forty Immutable Parables becomes a
self-parody of the initial inspiration I got from earlier Harvest
volumes. Especially volumes 1-2. This segment also becomes a
non-sequitar that sets up the devestating and unexpected conclusion
to Forty Immutable Parables which is hinted in Harvest volume
3, and the earlier chapters of Forty Immutable Parables: Black
and White Stress and Challenge and Glory. It's an unusual mix
of Castaneda, Kerouac, Salinger, and Joyce that goes totally
sci-fi in Forty Immutable Parables' final climax. Should I say
final film reel? There is never any real conclusive end to my
work. It just keeps moving on to the next weird series of insights.
Clarke, Kubrick, and also Teilhard come into play at the end
of Forty Immutable Parables with a new sci-fi/high concept kind
of vision which finally turns the spiritual/road-trip/psychic
thriller performance on its head with very little warning.
Immutable Parables has Lynchian echoes of all the previous Harvest
books as it expands beyond them while feeding off them in a
reflexive and circular way....
is the architecture:
Forty Immutable Parables
---- CAG ----TJS
---- H4 ----
entire canon of work is a massive dream constellation if you
then throw in Ginger Smudge aswell. This dream architecture
has thousands of images that get constantly re-cycled and transformed.
This massive dream universe in 2-ss then get's echoed by the
latest literary device I introduced only last month and which
is not in your version of the translation: a dream constellation
which get's echoed by these galactic constellations! The psychic
and the physical are fusing irreversibly on the most highest
and vastest of levels....
It's a systems fandango and a noetic fugue with massive spillage
between the psychic and physical worlds. This distant sentient
future in the newly emerging cosmological space of 2-ss is suddenly
born from the initial Harvest road-trips in California and then
Eurasia. California leads to Eurasia and then finally to the
entire universe in a steady and organic kind of long march.
The 1990's lead to the 8000's. An individual mind leads to a
global mind and then on to a galactic one and perhaps finally
to a universal kind of mind. That's Harvest volume one to all
the way to 2-ss. It took ten years. Who knows what a Harvest
volume 5 would be like.
far in my work there has been an enormous expansion of both
the physical and the psychic kinds of geographies even as they
are fused symultaneously and then irreversibly. This cognitive
expansion/fusion then creates both an internal and an external
freedom in the reader that is also both subtle and inexhaustible.
It's a freedom that can then be continually explored from all
kinds of multiple cognitive angles with no final conclusion
and no ultimate arrival to any forgone destination. The mind
is just given a HUGE space to explore. The very infinite space
of itself. It has always been there. The reader is simply now
made aware of this through some very unusual introductions.
These introductions then become a permanent doorway to new kinds
of cognitive explorations and discoveries. The mind is then
stretched permanently and given this strange form of vision
fuel. The reader also has to live with the consequences of being
in this new open space for there is now NO turning back. You
can't get deflowered again and again. If you know what I mean....
my works just echo each other in an expanding cognitive SPIRAL.
Each new spiral strand is richer than the last one and all past
strands are always contained in the latest. This is a conscious
and unconscious process on my part. In 2-ss, the psychic strands
of my work get a cosmic echo from subtle depictions of galactical
spiral arms and DNA helixes. The micro and macro aspects of
reality finally unite in a physical and psychic spacetime that
is terribly alive and elastic and just constantly on the move.
the spiral levels feedback and feedforward in infinite kinds
of combinations with potentially multiple kinds of interpretations.
Synergy and synchronicity then fuel these emerging combinations
and out of this miraculous process all kinds of surprising ideas,
insights, and visions emerge. The mind of both the reader and
author then EVOLVE symultaneously in both novel and rich ways.
This is really a strange process of creative serendipity and
free-association with a seemingly invisible and mysterious higher
force guiding it in ways that no one can then fully understand.
All we have is the literary ouput.
works both expand and empower the reader's mind SYMULTANEOUSLY.
The newly emerging Hollywood/media mafia is not unlike the ex-communist
one. It's just more subtle. It contracts the mind of the viewer/reader
and makes him/her go to sleep with no real empowering dreams.
It's a dull kind of commercial and mental sedation. I prefer
to wake up the reader/viewer and to then keep him/her just dreaming
on with empowering images and ideas.
this world you have the option of being either a psychic/physical
slave or a psychic/physical free-agent. You must make the choice.
It's always the individual versus society. Some socities are
more oppressive than others and some kinds of oppression are
more subtle than others. In the USSR the repression was not
subtle at all. the average Russian knew the score quite well.
In America the repression is more subtle and most Americans
are clueless about what's going on.
somehow interesting work get's published in America and falls
throught the cracks of the commercial censor. Amazon lists Harvest
as a spiritual visionary work. There are thousands of these
titles at Amazon. But what's this? Walmart's digital bookstore
has now picked up Harvest for it's spiritual visionary library
and it has only about 100 of these titles. Walmart is also America's
largest discount store. It is where middle America shops. IT
IS MIDDLE AMERICA. iUniverse has no idea how Walmart picked
up Harvest. Somehow, someone in Walmart's marketing division
decided to simply take a risk. Was it the lovely green and gold
cover that caught this mysterious decision maker's eye? Who
the dream spirals evolve on....
