Reaction to misunderstanding and miscomprehension of one self’s anima would conclude to an ignorance of one self’s internal renaissance
Denial also forces one to block their opus of emotions, to reach internal control of deity
Dismissal is emotional/spiritual suicide
To fear what is not understood is not an option for the spiritual realm
This decision is for the ignorant, arrogant, and the spiritually pigmented
The insecure are also on the list of the emotionally stigmatic
But realizing 85% of the brain is still attached to the physical body is the realization that 15% functioning is brainwashing
15% is a minor figure. To avoid pushing our mental thresholds, would result in the mental regression
A mind regressing would result in the discontinuing of evolving knowledge.
The deprivation of evolving knowledge would conclude in the loss of elite divinity.
No divinity terminates spiritual progression.
Without spiritual progression the soul is theoretically dead.
An interesting poem, purportedly by Tool singer Maynard James Keenan, that I first encountered back in the Napster days when I was first introduced to Tool.
A common strategy employed by unknown or newly-formed bands in those pioneering days was to piggyback your album on the name of a more famous group in file-sharing programs; in this case, a little band called Hallow released their record with the ID3 tags set to titles from Lateralus (which had come out earlier that year). Having not heard Tool before, they fooled me for a time, and I didn’t much care for their music, which I later discovered was a pale imitation of Tool.
This “Intro Poem,” though, is something of a mystery to me. Although it’s supposed to be a MJK poem, I’ve also seen it attributed to Alex Grey, who did album art for Tool and Nirvana, among others.
In any event, there’s a really great spine-tingling effect achieved with the telegram style “Stop. Stop. GO!” motif and all the sfx in the background. It leads into Tool-esque, mind bender music quite well.
