Good afternoon to you! It’s about 2:54 pm on this Thursday afternoon as I write to you. How has your day been wherever and whenever you are as you read this? The reason I ask that way is because you aren’t here as I’m writing this and essentially you are time-traveling when you do get the chance to visit! Kind of like looking at a photo of yourself from the past or the present and being transported into that particular moment in your mind! Same thing with my blog or anything you read, watch or hear. It’s all “dimensional” my dear Watson lol (sorry couldn’t help myself!)
So I was out back in my patio sanctuary and it came to me how much the Jenga game I watched Ben and Tilda playing yesterday was like the tiles I have stacked up in my backyard sanctuary. I got to thinking about my “attempt” yesterday to explain a very abstract concept about the “layers of existence” theory as I understand it. Putting the thoughts of the Jenga game and my tiles together, I got the idea to shift the tiles on top of each other to illustrate there being layers but still being a balanced pile. Then my orgonite (the epoxy resin with organic and inorganic components inspired by work of Dr. Wilhelm Reich), which in my mind symbolizes human beings because I believe we are living, breathing, walking and talking orgonite, came into the visualization. Then the stones I’ve been using out there came into things and you’ll like this, as I was arranging this visualization, the wind blew some oak leaves with spider web on them at me to add in too! It was after I went back into the house I realized the last parts of the visualization I was having — the symbols.
The very bottom layer was two rocks. The next layer two “female” orgonite pieces. The third, fourth, and fifth layers “male and female” orgonite pieces. The top layer are a large female orgonite piece that has organic beeswax in it and a smaller, newer male orgonite piece that are fused together. These two fused pieces are surrounded by rocks, the leaves and the symbols representing aspects of existence not previously represented. Symbols of the things in my life I feel make my life enjoyable to live.
I hope what I’ve shared here is helpful and resonates somehow with someone besides myself lol.
In creating my little outdoor sanctuary out back as I did, and putting objects like these into it, I’ve created a space I can use to bring tangibility to my spirituality. I’ve made it an interactive experience. This type of thing might be helpful for people living with a person and or a child like me. This can give them another way for such a person to show you what is going on in their heads without having to use words like I can. Not everyone can use words to explain what is going on in their head and that is where the arts come in. This is where interactive arts and science can be useful. I’m fairly certain this isn’t a new concept aka “original”. I don’t believe there is such a thing as an original thought in a collective consciousness such as ours. This said, I do believe that there can be originality in the way a known idea and or concept is presented! For example when it comes to hand or home-made objects versus machine made. When someone makes something with their own hands there is really no way to make another exactly the same way twice. I haven’t ever been able to accomplish that with my wire jewelry, drawings, tshirts etc. The phrase “one-of-a-kind” comes to mind. The same holds true for theater, films, books and all the arts.
It is our biological incapability of having the same perception of something that is what I’ve come to believe is a key to originality in a collective consciousness! For example the quality of ones eyesight. My eyes are better than Kyle’s so I can see myself much more clearly than he can. The flaws I find in myself because of my better eyesight he can’t see….they don’t exist to him.
Imagine a group of us going outside and standing under a star filled sky and our being asked to point at the first star we see. We are not all going to point at the same star but that doesn’t mean the star we chose isn’t just as important as the ones chosen by the rest of the group. It takes many different stars to power the night sky! Our individual perceptions will lead us to choose different stars from the same sky.
Thanks for visiting as always I send my love and hugs through the wires and on the winds that sustain us all.
Orgone is a pseudoscientific and spiritual concept described as an esoteric energy or hypothetical universal life force, originally proposed in the 1930s by Wilhelm Reich. As developed by Reich’s student Charles Kelley after Reich’s death in 1957, orgone was conceived as the anti-entropic principle of the universe, a creative substratum in all of nature comparable to Mesmer‘s animal magnetism (1779), to the Odic force (1845) of Carl Reichenbach and to Henri Bergson‘s élan vital (1907). Orgone was seen as a massless, omnipresent substance, similar to luminiferous aether, but more closely associated with living energy than with inert matter. It could allegedly coalesce to create organization on all scales, from the smallest microscopic units—called “bions” in orgone theory—to macroscopic structures like organisms, clouds, or even galaxies.
Reich stated that deficits or constrictions in bodily orgone were at the root of many diseases, much as deficits or constrictions in the libido could produce neuroses in Freudian theory. Reich founded the Orgone Institute ca. 1942 to pursue research into orgone energy after he immigrated to the US in 1939, and used it to publish literature and distribute material relating to the topic for more than a decade. Reich designed special “orgone accumulators”—devices ostensibly collecting and storing orgone energy from the environment—for improvement of general health or even for weather control. Ultimately, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) obtained a federal injunction barring the interstate distribution of orgone-related materials, on the grounds that Reich and his associates were making false and misleading claims, and later jailed Reich and destroyed all orgone-related materials at the institute after Reich violated the injunction. Reich rescinded the claim that accumulator could provide orgastic potency, but this was not enough to stop the action.
The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health lists orgone as a type of “putative energy”. There is no empirical support for the concept of orgone in medicine or the physical sciences, and research into the concept ceased with the end[when?] of the Institute.
