The Chrysalis of Transformation
There is a
saying: ‘Lay your cards on the Table’, originating obviously with Card Games. I
have been experimenting with a system of the Laying of Images on the Table.
This imaginal process, leaves the ‘Reader’ free to make associations, and/or
equivalences between the images, here represented with examples from:
Mikalojus Konstantinas Cuirlionis, Alex Grey, William Blake, the 1999 film, The
Matrix, and Arcanum 17 of the Egyptian Tarot? Make your own conclusions.

thou a Worm? image of weakness, art thou but a Worm?
see thee like an infant wrapped in the Lillys leaf;
weep not little voice, thou can'st not speak, but thou can'st weep:

none to answer, none to cherish thee with mothers smiles.
Blake, The Book of Thel,1780.
is a receptacle where synthetically created humans are inserted into the System
to become part of the power plant and the Matrix. Humans are grown in the Fetus
fields and, based on Morpheus' description of pods, are immediately connected
by a myriad of umbilicals that not only provide the body with sustenance, but
draw heat energy from the body to power the Machines and their city.”
