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.

Mystery, by the Lithuanina Painter & Composer, Mikalojus Konstantinas Ciurlionis. Cycle of Twelve Pictures of the Zodiac, 1907. Mikalojus Konstantinas Ciurlionis and more HERE

Star Grey

Left: ARCANUM 17, THE STAR. From the Egyptian Tarot, Paris, late 19th Century.
Art thou a Worm?  image of weakness,  art thou but a Worm?
I see thee like an infant wrapped in the Lillys leaf;
Ah weep not little voice, thou can'st not speak, but thou can'st weep:
Is this a Worm?  I see they lay helpless & naked: weeping
And none to answer, none to cherish thee with mothers smiles.
William Blake, The Book of Thel,1780. 

A Pod 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.


THE MATRIX, The Wachowski Brothers, 1999

To study the Way is to study the self.
To study the self is to forget the self.
To forget the self is to be enlightened by all things.
To be enlightened by all things is to remove all barrier between oneself and others.
