At First Autogenesis

Source

At first Autogenesis, the first perfect mind
Awakening sleeper to the passage of time
Highlands of gold like the smoldering sage
Vibrate as one at the turn of the age
I roam the forests as gentle as a fawn
Sometimes near, and sometimes gone
I like a hunter, am the horde, and the ox
I light like the lightning in eyes like the fox

I am everything,
And nothing at all
I am here and I am not
To feel the madness
As the wind 'wakes the fall
I live in fear of what I must Love

I am the great one that came from the caves
I transmitting freedom, for without it I am a slave
I like a jackal, hunting wild like the wolves
Time moving light as art, to live in prophetic truths
I am the mountains where the serpent eats the vine
I know the namers of the masters of dream time
Delight the howling of the beasts, of the trees
I ride the starlight of all these things yet unseen

I am everything,
And nothing at all
I am here and I am not
To feel the storms surge
As the wind 'wakes the call
We live in fear of what I must Love

I am Osiris, Poseidon, and Ra
I am Joshua, as enlightenment comes
Born of the brotherhood of life, and death, in dream
And I rule over all the times in between
I am at war, I am technologies
I am as stone, I am the ecology
I am the shadows, all secret and phantom
The poets of Pan and the splitters of the atom

I am everything,
And nothing at all
I am here and I am not
To be a storm magnetic
As the wind 'wakes we follow
Live not in fear of what I must Love

In Lak'ech
I am another like yourself

Poetic Notes and History on by Blake4d

I am a huge believer in technopaganism.

One day I decided to take an inventory of everything bad that I had ever done to my body, ingested into my body, or had exposed my body to in the plus 40 years I haved lived on this planet. The reason being, that someone had made the comment that if I had never done drugs, drank, smoked, or many other things...that I would likely have been an Einstein ( although that comments still makes me think they were basically calling me a Brain Surgeon, or a Rocket Scientist - how come when we insult people we never compare them to a Gas station attendant, or a Bicycle repair person, or just go for the jugular and call them a flunkie from Clown college and be done with it ). Basically this person implied that they found me to be amazingly creative, intelligent et cetra...but what light years further I would have been if I had never been addicted to anything or abused my brain cells with intoxicants. Keep in mind, they are saying I impress them with my watered down brain - and also are saying they can imagine what a better person I yet might have been.

What kind of juxtaposed oxymoronic statement is that any way?

It reminds me of an annonymous joke I heard recently...

A person gets up from their couch to answer a knock at the front door. Upon opening the door, they see a snail at the doorstep welcome mat looking up at them.

The snail says, "Hello there, I am selling magazine subscriptions...would you like too buy something?"

The person reacts violently, kicking the snail off of the porch and flying far across the street into the field beyond. Then in equally uncontrolled rage the person slams their front door loudly and returns to their couch.

Two years later, the same person gets up from their couch to answer a knock at the front door. Upon opening the door, they see the same snail on the doorstep welcome mat looking up at them.

The snail says, "What the F**k was that about?"

( For those of you, whom the irony of that joke is lost upon, read it over a couple of times...)

This is a relatively new kind of twist on the outlooks of what are traditionally called paganism. In essence the key idea is that modern technology, devices, computers and artifacts of the post-industrial world can be used as sacred or magical tools, just as the challis or athame have been in classical and neopaganism. Also technopaganism sees modern musical styles, synthesized writing, digital arts, and even computer code as sacred music, text, and basis for what older religions would have used hymns and scripture to supplicate.

"An important part of Paganism both culturally and historically has been the tradition of passing knowledge down through song, poetry, and art. Many things can be expressed in no other way...and over time lyrics and prose can be interpreted by the reader in terms of their own perspectives and times. As part of the Pagan perspective for Phoenix and worldwide. This author will be including the occasional original poetic work that is uniquely Pagan, and has been written and recited locally, but is meant for the eyes of all Pagans in the world. "

"Hopefully it adds a little art to the reality that is the modern age. Also it is true to the cut up method of William S. Burroughs, Genesis P. Orridge, Phillip K. Dick, alongside with Starhawk, Crowley, Gardner, Jung, Murray, and all writers whom are the founding fathers of Neo Paganism and modern Technopaganism in this new millennium. Creating new sacred text from the ancient pagan ways and arts. So here is the first piece of poetic justice, and look forward to more offerings once or twice a month in the future." - Blake Hall on another website

It is funny, but those quotes from myself explain a lot of what I believe better than I can find the words for myself. Maybe they will have to suffice.

There is an interesting urgency and sensuousness (not sexuality) to the flow of words in this poem. I really like the juxtaposition of mythological and historical personae, images, and events. And even if I didn't like the poem, which I do very much, the initial picture alone would have been worth a vote Up and Awesome. :)
