The Polyphasic Body and Its Many Worlds




There are two kinds of people in the world, those who believe

there are two kinds of people in the world and those who don't.                                                                                    ––Robert Benchley

Do we live in a UNIverse or MULTIverse? Is it one world or many worlds? Most of us feel it as a true thing that we are all living in the same one world. We have many curious ways to disregard, not embody, the mounting evidence to the contrary. I am curious what our senses will allow us to 'see' if we learn to reset the constraints.


Joseph Cambell (Creative Mythology, Masks of  God, Book 4) wrote that one of the four goals of mythology is to see the world as it really it. This is the true song of the siren, luring sailors to shipwreck, the lure of hearing what actually happened, what is the true story. It is the appeal of the Grand Narrative, the story of all stories. I wonder what other cultures experience this problem or is this uniquely Western, inherited from the Greeks, along with many other errors we have constructed mansions upon.


The history of the body

The vision is for Ongoingness; Life continuing on . . . .

I am I and my circumstance;

and, if I do not save it, I do not save myself.                       —JOSÉ ORTEGA Y GASSET

Changing the Conversation

I was born. I am always a vessel for something other than myself. The self is only a

vehicle for Foreign matter which comes from elsewhere and is destined to go on

elsewhere without me, whether it's words, smells, vision                                                      ––EMANUELE COCCIA  Metamorphoses

The Story Teller

Now, more than ever . . . our place in the universe and the place of the universe in us, is proving to be one of active relationship. That is more than a scientist's credo. The separateness of our lives is a sham. Physics, mathematics, music, painting, my love for you, my work, the star-dust of my body, the spirit that impels it, my politics,  clocks diurnal, time perpetual, the roll, rough, tender, swamping, liberating, breathing, moving, thinking nature, human nature and the cosmos are patterned together.

What you do, what you become, is not my concern.                      ROBERT MCCALL



Yes, there is beauty

There is love

There is joy.

All you who suffer from

the world's miseries

Defend them.
