birds, death, & geometry

This was the title I gave a dream from many years ago, and it still sums up my preoccupation.

Birds symbolise the spiritual heights, the architecture of super-consciousness.

Death the depths, the archaeology of sub-consciousness.

And geometry the solid pavements and temples in the middle ground, consciousness.

When I came up with the term "psychosystemics" some years ago, I vowed to write an essay or article illustrating these ideas, which I will now I have the time and the will to do.

Psyche-systemics : the ghost in the machine, the machinery of the ghost, and the interface of the one with the other.

Ideas I want to apply to organisational development and its impact on the individual. What compromises we make in order to fit in to the culture, and how we can change it from within.

Uncomfortable truths and realisations, but with awareness some transformation may be possible...

Chris Whitley & The Bastard Club do a brilliant Tubeway Army cover - a driven guitar version of Are "Friends" Electric?

The other one I love is this spliced AFE with the Sugababes Freak Like
Me - an added voltage and something of the cold original presence of the Numanoid himself sets it apart.

So much has changed!
It's a long time since I posted anything. I wonder why?
Here I am now, sitting by my own window looking out over the sunny hills, mid afternoon - just after three - and in a kind of lacuna, a gap in my life.
A big darkwood kitchen table.

Out of one role, looking for another. And beginning to create a new life, new work, new ways.
Will I be ok? Will it work out?

Am I brave enough to take the leap, and am I lucky enough to get the breaks!
