Post subject: Notes from Recent Conversations with "McLuhan"... Reply with quote

... PART FOUR:

McLuhan on Maui #31 – 11/10/11
http://fivebodied.com/archives/audio/catalog/Bob_Audio/McLuhanOnMaui/2011-11-10--McLuhanOnMaui-31.mp3

iON = describes itself as the voice of the Guf (a term in Jewish
religious literature referring to where souls go after the death of
the Physical Body) speaking via the environs of "JW" (billionaire
[perhaps a trillionaire] born Aug.8, 1965, in the Atlanta, Georgia
area) since March 18, 2009

m = "Marshall McLuhan"
c = "Corinne McLuhan"
pw = parallel worlder or worlding

The clock timings are not always precise... though some are!

iON enters and Astro (JW's dog) falls asleep (as usual just as a session with iON begins) but then, on this occasion, shortly after the session starts Astro wakes up which is very unusual 59:34
iON announces new policy not to speak to everyone but cherishes the opportunity to talk with Scott Taylor 1:01:38

Finnegans Wake and “white holes” via the playfair cipher 1:06:26

“prepositional positioning”, the pluperfect tense, and the futile “adverbial clause” (without an object) 1:16:14
iON quotes T. S. Eliot’s “headpieces without straw” to counter James Joyce’s “ridiculous position of FW without the playfair cipher, however ANGELIC” 1:17:19
iON says “language (the problem with the wall) obfuscates absolutely” 1:18:39
iON says Winston Churchill, a civil servant always building walls, worried about his pension (he turned 65 in 1939), started WW2 - and that was a “useful” event 1:18:52

iON explains the 3 parts of a “singularity” (plus “the application of the polarity within a frequency that affects magnetism on the other end of the black hole within the confines of the singularity”) 1:47:32
iON tells Scott to stop being “outside the meme” because “it caused you much travail” 1:51:48
more on m’s agenda (“start looking and seeing instead of seeing and looking” [m saw the Mass as an element like hydrogen]) 1:52:13
for m the Mass was “a gauge but not the end-all, be-all – it was m’s only singularity (the only thing singular)” 1:53:41
m’s “Annie Hall” and why m was post-Corinne after his brain surgery in 1967 1:54:06
before 1967 m had to impress Corinne because “she felt m was a damn second-rate teacher at some ridiculous Canuck lower institution of learning” 1:54:45

I'm curious about the pizza stories ... I think I've said this before, but KNZ was told in a dream that "McLuhan only likes one topping on his pizza" ... it's helped me understand M's Catholicism as a matter of (formal) taste.

BOB: When Marg was in the hospital in the spring of 1978, MM sent a pizza twice with these words on them respectively:

"Here's mud in your eye"

"The medium is the message"
