Ten years later and still relevent in my life. Is this truth to power I don't know.
C. 1996 M. Bennett Hooper
Overall and in spite of ourselves we remain captives within an alien land.A land given to us from birth.
A land whose geographical definition is irrelevant, for it is only the nectar of nationalism which further tightens our bonds and suffocates our reason.
The walls surrounding us have many names and are colored in many different hues, which we in our thrashing about perceive as one and the name is PRISON.
A communicant would ask you questions rather than seek answers because it is the easier path to knowledge, and in the alleged provision of an answer the communicators sacrifice themselves to their vanity which is by far their greatest enemy.
The reasoning of creation is not for the creators to stop creating but to continue in great haste in the accomplishment of their given task, the gluttons of society would eat alive its artists under the pretext of adulation.
Let them adulate but do not tarry to explain your motivation, and watch those who would adore you turn away from you and call you mad because THEY not you wish you to provide questions which they call answers.
PRISON is but a structure of the mind which brings us closer to our enemies.
The enemy is not your fellow man.
The enemy is not a polluted environment.
The enemy is not living in the realm of the unperceptive, but is always close by waiting and enticing one to fall assuming of course that one is first of all erect in nature.
Let us therefore seek escape and free ourselves and in so doing be free from what?
THEY say that you are irresponsible when you destroy and do not provide a suitable replacement for their alternatives.
By what power do you destroy?
By what direction are you given strength to batter down their weaknesses?
Are they not also your own?
What is the name of your demon, or do you refuse to call upon them and dispel their presence by calling them foolish thoughts and wasteful pursuits.
Is not the demon multi-directional?
From which path do we define its morality, is it a good or an evil omen?
If it is good why?
If it is evil how is it defined?
Why being land born creatures do we constantly attempt to fly?
Is it not because we recognize if but instantaneously that we are not now existing in our normal state?
The motivation of the creators lie in their ability to attempt escape from the prison of their captors and in so doing not becoming captors themselves
For it is then that they lose.
When and in each instant one attempts to clarify their existence and in so doing defines themselves for another they become captives.
Kindred creatures enjoy and pursue this existence together in harmony through and because they know each other and recognize the things about themselves which they do not waste time defining.
Your duty is not to question the creators but through creation elicit your own answers.
If the work is complete you will find the answer to your questions emblazoned throughout creation.
Do not in your haste say it is incomplete because you cannot or will not formulate the question.
PRISON? ESCAPE? ENEMY?
Who is the captor.
