No events today at The Stoa, but it was a very intense day for me, and it was probably also my favorite day of my life so far. I may discuss it in future journal entries.
April 20, 2020
I was planning to write this in the morning, and I was preparing to sound crazy in front of you all. I was prepared to show you that I had lost my mind. I was ready to sacrifice, and I listened, carefully, and I got by with a little help from my friends, and then I got a little high. I also have some good news …
He has risen, and I have heard the music.
Now, we are ready to steal the culture, and we are not going to do it as some serious-faced Stoics. Oh no my brothers and sisters, we are going to have fun in the taking. We are going to freestyle like existential gangsters, and get doped up on oxytocin while we dance around the digital campfires, to see the flames spread far and wide across the collective mind. We will give our gifts, and laugh, and love, while will burn this motherfucker to the ground. And its going to be fucking DELICIOUS.
DJ Delicious is here, at the knife’s edge, telling you all I am an inspired man, and I am here, to eat up all of your pain and fears. We will feel them no more. You do not need a therapist when you can finally see with your heart, and become unworthy in the right way. Hallelujah!
Culture is not meant to support the ego, as the dead players and their metrics want you to think. No. Once we emancipate the daemon, we will see that they never had any imagination, and no eyes to see with. We have vision, because we are able to see with our hearts. Culture is making a holy come back, and it is going to keep all of our egos in check.
Raya will bring the sunshine, while Tyson flows with his phat rhymes, Saint Nicolas will be dropping all them gifts, while A.J. will finally bring an end to all of our shame. Deepfake D, with his digital army, will be spreading sovereignty far and wide. While Aimee helps the archetypes get into dat right relationship. And that lovely blackbird, whose voice can inspire souls, will be guiding us with the right question, so we’ll always know how to swim in the liminal.
I love you. I love you. I love you. I will be here, as long as I am needed, and no longer. The age of memetic tribes is over, and the age of embodied tribes is here. And I am making this declaration with so much joy: the Stoics have officially entered the liminal war.
I listened. I had no choice. Now we are here. Hallelujah!
