1.”….Contract and secrete….” From a Physiology Lecture by Dr. Gerald Cizadlo (Dr. C)

2.  “We could wish to be moral, we could wish to be philosophically comforted, in fact, we could will these things with all our might, but the needed power wasn’t there. Our human resources, as marshalled by the will, were not sufficient; they failed utterly”..The Big Book (Alcoholics Anonymous)p.45, We Agnostics

4.”As long as we could believe with Descartes that if we knew something clearly and distinctly, we knew it, we were okay.” Rick Roderick From The Self Under Siege: Philosophy in the 20th Century (1993)  lecture one “The Masters Of Suspicion”. 5.”That’s the problem of false consciousness. That’s why it’s severe. It’s you could be absolutely clear you have no doubt, and it could be a pure abstract cultural mechanism, and not you… and not you” Rick Roderick From The Self Under Siege: Philosophy in the 20th Century (1993)  lecture one “The Masters Of Suspicion”

Figment Topology (The Poem With Photographs)

Figment Topology

In the past it seemed like
people could see me
soraxtm2012-7137

like they might even
be able to perceive
extra aspects of myself
that I couldn’t
soraxtm2012-7406
but now
I think I know
that I don’t exist
_MG_8319_tonemapped
you see
soraxtm2012-7405
The thing I had
seen as myself
was just a figment
I had misapprehended
as a construction
of others
soraxtm2012-7133
I made that self
out of turning away
Untitled-13
but
I’m actually just
the stuff
lying outside of that
Boxed in slide
I am not the spawn
of the projection
of other people

I may believe
that
they can see what shows up
in the world
to see

But
I am not
my body
I am not a
physical being
It__s_All_In_The_Apation_by_sor
I am just a plane
that captures the waves
entering my senses
_A289333-1-2
those things
that come inside,
coalesce
and form
something
I’ll never
be sure
of
