Sometimes I view the body as the technological intermediary molecular machine that is designed to facilitate the expression of consciousness.
At peak moments within the creative experience my consciousness extends beyond the organic body into the energetic matrix of technology – that of circuits, and electricity; and my mind’s intention activates its inert potential.
As I loosen the grasp on my consciousness, the body can begin to behave automatically, and if I let go at the right time the automation is harmonious.
Ultimately, how many bodies do we ‘have’? How many layers to our mind? What else is working through us that is higher than the mind? Where does the mind end and something else begin?
Does the body recognize the soul more than the mind, given that it is more instinctual than intellectual by nature?
Is the mind’s carefully assembled creation or the body’s raw spontaneous expression more real?
What is real to begin with?
At times I do not even see her… yet I know exactly where she is and my brush will anticipate her arrival out of invisibility to begin a new curve or line or accent.
Perhaps if art is an expression of one’s core being, then this form of artistic union delivers the chemistry between two beings.
Dance is medicine and when we become the dance we become the medicine.
I perceive art as a doorway, like a peaking through so that once you reach there, as a natural state, for an extended moment or longer, you may then say to yourself, “Ah, I know this. I recognize this. I’ve been here before.”
Your memory then serves as an affirmation. Like remembering a place you saw in a dream, only more real. It is the thin line where the intangible becomes tangibly acknowledged.
The art of technology?
As the individual gains a modest amount of perceived control over a particular software, routine or program, there is a memory stored within the muscles and the body of the user.
The goal is to gain mastery over at least one particular routine, so the memory of your muscles upon the application becomes the vortex of your consciousness, your breadcrumb of reality.
The creative process at its core dissolves the borders of conventional reality generated by the integration of the mind and body at a certain frequency.
Due to this shift, it becomes possible to step beyond what we normally perceive as reality, or to see ourselves as separate from events of the past, present, or future, which in turn may ‘allow’ us to detach from them and find new perspectives.
As your comprehension of time deteriorates, the value and respect of the eternal equation that you have always experienced expands.
Your perception is the tip of the record’s needle spinning forward. Your decisions are derived from a source beyond knowing, and so it exceeds my ability to describe it.
When sense is placed aside the lid is blown off; and if our presence is still complete what may transpire is more than what we could imagine or plan for.
It is in those moments that I begin to allow myself to believe that being out of control can be just as much if not more a blessing as being in control.
I, or the ‘I’ that I know, does not ‘create’ magic. It allows magic through. And for that there are no rules to make up prior; it is a state of being where we are of no importance.
