Talking to Bob

Just a quick post to say that Robert Anton Wilson's course on Non-Eucidean Politics starts today (the 23rd) and that you can still sign up for what should prove a stimulating course.

"Greetings, fellow inhabitants of planet earth. This course does NOT intend to convert you to one different way of thinking but to introduce you to several alternatives -- systems almost always ignored by the corporate media and State education.?We begin with stateless socialism. Even more "unthinkable" notions wlll soon follow..."

on the spot zen recording studio space

the sound already on
music playing
instruments lay waiting
ready for moments notice on the flow through effect of life
and recording for prosperity
translated into infinate forms

sound not still but still
individual combined
or friends from other worlds
just getting to know before moving on into another existance

down on the carpet
the long red pathway rings string sliding

Having built a map of the picture
The scene clearly viewed

Observing the different actions, interactions, and the results
Played Back
Write it down

the structure inches from the floor

Don't Quote Me

I enjoy the fact that we have a regular flow of visitors, but at the same time we can’t really expect people to return too often if the content doesn’t change.

Any MLA members who would like to contribute (and this doesn’t have the same pressures as writing a piece for the Maybe Quarterly, as you can always edit or delete your own posts), just contact me to get an invite to become a contributing member, easy as that.

After an initial flurry of activity with several members contributing creative pieces, this seems to have turned into more-or-less my own blog and gossip channel.

I don’t mind as:

I have really enjoyed my 18 months as a member of MLA, and feel happy to enthuse about it

I know that the world has plenty of free forums, so you might wonder why you should have to pay to mingle with this particular crowd, so I think it only fair to try to describe the kind of style you will meet on MLA courses and forums...

- No, the women don't get to play chess with Marcel Duchamp and no-one gets to play chess with nude women (as far as I know) but outside of that, anything might happen.

I don’t have any guideline or censor to consider, so the whole thing can mutate or die. Things change over time, anyway, and I will happily keep the pages turning until someone else decides to post new words or pictures

Right now I have gone off to explore the (free) Tribe network, and the various groups in there who have similar interests, from General Semantics to Robert Anton Wilson, from Magick and Shamanism to James Joyce. I only hope they don’t see me as trying to hustle up business! I have no investment in MLA beyond my own love of learning and good company.

Things to look forward to...

So the Gregorian Calendar rolled over into a new digit, and on we go.

The new courses for the Academy will start soon.

The Goddess Path sounds intriguing, however you visualise the goddesses.

Patricia Monaghan
will lead a course on The Goddess Path. You can look at the syllabus for this 8 week course from January 9 - March 5, 2006 here

Robert Anton Wilson will also run an 8 week course on Non-Euclidian Politics:Beyond Left and Right from Jan 23 - March 19, 2006.

Finally (for now) Antero Alli will run an 8 week course from March 13 - May 7, 2006 - on the subject of ANGEL TECH: The 8-Circuit Brain in Theory and Practice. Especially exciting for those of us who missed RAW's previous 8 Dimensions of "Mind" course.

If you can't afford that course, haven't the time, or have signed up (like me) but would like a foretaste - I noticed that Antero Alli himself has started a tribe on the same theme over at Tribe. Yeh, right - freeeeee, honest!
