Amongst just the four us, there was the feeling of the potentiality of the moment. That’s all, but we all live for such moments. But, a couple of hours later, we had a virtual ‘hostage’ situation. When you seem to set time on it’s ear, time can often come rushing back with a vengeance. It does that.
Could that same magic be extendable to the whole world.....? That would be the idea...... to set about to banish time. A portal is a wrinkle in time, when externalities are held at bay. The Princess can play with such moments. She can stick her neck out. Hollywood certainly does. They are what makes the world go around.
Can we make the world stand still, without our falling off? That is a trick.
Global events would have to be synchronized. We do that once or twice a year, but too often in a negative way.
Had you been sitting at the next table, you might barely have noticed. It was a sort of seance, without the table tipping. The server might have tipped a bit. But that was just about the tip, I’m sure.
Is that what all the fuss is about....... the lights in the sky and the circles on the ground? What a snooze fest. Nothing to see here. There is just the quality of a waking dream. Fleeting at best. The world moves on....... inexorably? Maybe not.
We are surrounded with deep space and deep time, and science has stooped to conquer that abyss. It does it’s atomic magic. We suppose that there is none other. But physicists know that, deep down, every atom is a portal in its own right.
This is what Eric was trying to tell us...... the Presence of the present..... eternity in a moment ...... a few seconds of missing time. If the food was not in front of us..... if our bowls were empty...... sorry, no magic. Quakers all..... we have our moments of silence.
We do synchronize our souls...... in a blue moon.
We’re looking for love in all the wrong places. Love makes the world go around, but it can also make it stop. We’ll have to be holding hands if we don’t wish to be thrown off.
With the theory of evolution, we are but a flash in the pan..... we live on borrowed time...... the economy lives precariously, on borrowed money. The banks are our centers of synchronization of our infinite debts.
But consciousness brings with it.... time and timelessness..... in a constant dance. All the objectivity in the world cannot banish subjectivity. It would sure look funny without it.
