Tele-vision


the conflict of dialogue
characterizes
the language
that renders
reality
as surreal

as an
awareness
that
plays out

"they can't kill me",
so take the chance,
let's do this scene,
then where it ends up....
"don't look at me" kind of thing--
when it comes to "who did this",
well, the author did.
but who and where is the author
and "could he be in front of you or me"?


the seeds of conflict
programs
the viewers
and dress the scene
for entertainment
in a way
that you can look
at it like: "good!-
someone's done all this
crazy stuff for me today"


variations are infinite
but there are
no messages
except
how to look away


holding yourself
at a distance
and knowing
ultimately
that this is a stage
that has been forever
and the only change is
the electronics have gotten better


technology allows
us to externalize
our inner selves,
it offers us an ability
to break free.


meaning,
when watching t.v.
we're engaging with a screen
of powerful imagery


and, in practice,
you can take
mental activity
and apply it to your own movement
using memory as a machine
-it gives us a kind of...
immortality

a rebirth
to accept
our mythology


also,
if we can identify
with the people wrapped
up in this virtuality
we can see
that it is
our own nature
that is expanding
to see it all as "we"


and then, as practice, right?
move your arms in full circles
in your own space,
(with no screen)
but mentally imagine
a mental space alongside reality


you see
if we understand the nature
of t.v.
it can free us from some of our suffering
and open up our experience
-our constitution, essentially


to use the medium of our bodies
to channel such energy.


our physical bodies
as being
the differential of
what makes me me
a "variation on a theme"
and you have a different
relationship to
that variation
than he.
