Post subject: Culpa Reply with quote

I met an unconventional beauty at the entrance to the underground swimming pool.

The swimming itself was quite strange: narrow troughs cut into the cement and covered with institutional tile.

I am unsure if I really met an unconventional beauty at the entrance to the pool or somewhere else in the fourth culpa.

Perhaps it is just wishful thinking: perhaps I was actually alone in the underground swimming pool.

The dream agents seem to take on different characteristics more and more often.

I never know what I am going to run into anymore though it almost always feels like something from the distant past of my childhood.

An Interconnectedness of Meaning

Pop-Culturally, the underground worlds of the Kalpa became the Culpa in my mind. I kept thinking of the Kalpa as the Culpa and began to define this underground world that had come to me in my dreams as being the Culpa.

After later investigation I have found that Culpa is actually the Latin word for Guilt.

The Culpa, the underground passages through my subconscious have been referred to as the Guilt in my mind for several months now.

This seems to be somewhat providential.

It seems to make a great deal of sense, as I have felt a desire to explore through the levels of the Culpa for several years now.

In my film A [1991] and more prominently in A4 [1994], the American Pope has been assassinated and sent to Hell by the Assassin. The hell he is sent to resembles a basement.

In my dreams I have often ventured deep underground. Deep into moldy basements of indeterminate size. There is a common theme of these basements in that there is always a way to go either up or to go down. I never had a name for these areas until I came upon the pop-cultural name of the Kalpa.

The Culpa seems to be endless.

Please do not be mistaken. I do not think of the subconscious pathways of my mind of being filled with nothing but guilt. I am moved, however, by the way in which I had misnamed something I had taken from Popular Culture in a way that proved to be an even more accurate presentation of a phenomenon of the psychic exploration that has been commanding my imagination for some time now.

Post subject: Shirley --- and don't call me Shirley Leslie Reply with quote

I am Looking Through a Dream-O-Scope and inside of it is a young Shirley Jackson.

I read two of her stories when I was quite young though I had no idea who wrote them.

Later they came back to haunt me.

A friend said... you're story felt like a Shirley Jackson...

I was all like....

wha-

but then I picked up a collection of short stories and I understood.

I think that Shirley Jackson invaded my subconsciousness sometime in 1983 or 1984.

This feeling is reminiscent of the Jane Wiedlin and Pointer Sisters articles.

I in no way consider this a part of the Outer Channel because of the ownership my psyche established at such a young age. I must claim the rights to whatever material comes about [i.e. this article] due to the fact that I was subjected to it much like a toddler to second-hand smoke...

[Ask Shirley about second-hand smoke if you ever run into her...]


Don't contact me to tell me that she is dead either...

Professor Dobbs over at Fivebodied has a saying:

The User is the content.


I have lived by this since 1994.

Had had a dream last night that the numbers in Bob's chart are Hand Signals for the Blind and that 14/22 was the interval/ratio for the homosexual lifestyle (ie. Oscar Wilde, dandies, etc.)

Post subject: Bernardo helps me visualize the next Culpa entrance. Reply with quote

Bernardo helps me visualize the next Culpa entrance.


As I got off of the inbound train I came across Bernardo, a gentleman that I had met as a child.

He seemed to recognize me so he drew me aside and told me that:

The Culpa is quite deep but getting there is the difficulty.

He told me that the Culpa was different for everyone and that he had been blessed with an entrance to his at a young age.

He told me that I had missed my entrance on several occasions due to fear.

You cannot fear that which is rightfully yours.

He smiled broadly and told me that at some point the door would appear in cement and that it would be under a rug.

I nodded and made a few business calls.

I could only remember the one dream with the elevator. That was the most obvious one. Most of the others were small doors in inopportune places: Places that I could not reach if I were to remain a part of polite society.

Keep reading, he told me, Castaneda, Jackson, Murakami, Nasir, etc.

He also told me to keep playing videogames as:

The pharmatronics are quite useful for training. They help you to make the choices once they are presented to you in a timely manner so that you will not be plagued by more opportunity costs.

He also told me to make sure that I see the new Hayden Christensen movie but to make sure that when I do:

you imagine the events in the film as happening to the aesthe-combo Glass-Christensen model that you created several weeks ago...

HISTORY OF TOKYO:
-----------------

199X:
-----
* The Great Destruction of Tokyo
Thorman presses the button to launch nuclear-warhead-tipped ICBMs at Tokyo.
Global nuclear holocaust ensues.

203X:
-----
* The Great Tokyo Flood
After the rebuilding of Tokyo, a tectonic plate movement of massive
proportions causes the ocean to rush into Tokyo and decimate the area
around it. Even after the waters receded, the suburbs of Tokyo remained
submerged.

* Establishment of a Communal Cooperative Society
After the destruction of the Cathedral, a free society and government is
established, where anyone, both Mesian and Gaian alike, are welcomed warmly.

204X:
-----
* Rise of the Mesian Church
Through political machinations, the Mesian Church takes over the government
and converts it to a theocracy.

* Gaian Revolt
Angry and opposed to the Mesian rise to power, several groups of Gaians start
riots, but they are quickly quelled by the Temple Knights.

205X:
-----
* Completion of the Center
Using a huge amount of funding, a massive structure is built on the former
site of the Cathedral and named the "Center." The plan to create a municipal
government called "Millennium" is announced.

* Demonoids developed
In order to ensure a source of labor, artifical life forms called "Demonoids"
are developed.

206X:
-----
* Millennium nearly completed
Facilities designed to accomodate the people like Valhalla and the Factory
(a production/industrial area) are designed and nearly complete.
Entertainment facilities like the Casino are also built.

* Environmental Contamination
Through global warming, radioactive contamination, and the deterioration of
the ozone layer, most of the world outside of Millennium is rendered
uninhabitable. Large numbers of people from around the world flock to
Millennium, as its environment is entirely self-contained.

* Temple Knights become Special Police Forces
After putting an end to several Gaian demonstrations and revolts, the Temple
Knights are evaluated by the Center and are promoted to Elite status. They
are declared the official police force of the city. Their increase in power
tightens the control the Center has on the rest of the city.

20XX:
-----
And the Messiah is born...

Future work

Mitchell's next book will be an historical novel about Dejima, the man-made island in the middle of Nagasaki Harbour that was built to house Dutch traders in the 17th century. Having just finished five months of research in the Netherlands, Mitchell says that the biggest challenge will be what to omit from this complex story. "For over two centuries", he said, "the Dutch were the only white people allowed to see inside Japan". No one was allowed on or off the island except for tradesmen, translators and prostitutes. "Except", he said, "every four years when the head of the trading post made the trek to Edo (modern-day Tokyo) to pay his respects to the Shogun". Mitchell plans to contrast Shogunate Japan with the Napoleonic era in Europe, he said. Of particular interest is the fact that while the Netherlands ceased to exist for a while after Napoleon annexed it, the Dutch flag still flew in Dejima.

As you descend further through the Culpas, it begins to feel less and less like you are underground.

For example, the Fifth Culpa felt like the basement of a department store.

It was there that I met several young Mormon Missionaries.

After leaving that Culpa we journeyed by car to a picturesque small town. There was some sort of Gala affair that I attended with Claire.

Regina became somewhat angered that I attended with Claire, I believe that she was mad that we split off from the main group.

The Gala did have good food though, and several of Regina and Claire's male friends were there.

They told me that females didn't usually venture outside of the country on Mission. They said that the girls had never really left the town but were drugged and taken to a migrant colony outside of town.

Claire was surprisingly uninterested in proselytizing and spent more time telling me about the car she was saving up for.

Thank you Joan.

This is a controlled dream narrative reminiscent of Win Wenger's work:

With a tad bit of flourish.

I moved to the Midwest to take up pharming, so I can be closer to "Reality". Soon, I'll post pics of me shootin' deer and muskrat. Musk ox too if I'm quick enough!

Gabba gabba hey!

"Culpanaut Black," he said, "why are you dressed up like Mothman?"

"Dressed up like?" He replied with a queer smile.

From the Dutch:

A report within the newspaper l read; 'town has cooled down'; leg. Roger Scarberry, a member of the group which 'the character of the town has found'; the factory of TNT has, said that during wrote the pleasant borders of city of the point [most likely Point Pleasant - ed.], they have the body of a large dog which is himself of the roadside. Some minutes later, on the way support of the city, the dog has gone. They have even stoppedat Zoeken, exactly some minutes for young partridge of Newell has immediately thought of the bandit, who was never reconsidered.

From the German:

'All of the old animals are returning, in this world of technology, which many may easily find damnable...'

From the Polish:

'The original Cryptozoological Prince has made his presence once more palpable.'

and From the Japanese:

'This is truly the Graffiti of the Cryptozoological Generation...'
