THE STRANGE ANIMAL FROM THE NORTH    

(based on a novel by Lars Gustafsson)

When the space-time continuum is slightly ‘bent’ and causality gives way to interactions, stories like Gustafsson’s emerge; there are ‘irregularities’ in the linear understanding – the sense of time is tricked, something music can do as well – ! And: Different realities create an ‘uncertain’ (unnerving) spectrum of perception (also woven into our music), which makes everything appear relative.

INTRODUCTION
When time folds like fan-shape, bearing twins
When the Space-Lord splits into eight similar characters
To populate his loneliness by explaining
‘There are so many ways to exist…
it is impossible not to lay claim on one of them!’
And the Dream-Maker manipulates your perception
By ignoring the lines between understanding and emotions
And he adds: "Who are you to believe a shadow can be killed by another shadow!"
You are a very special guest on board of the gigantic sunstorm-glider Pascal 2
In the mentaly created space of its officers’ mess
Following the storytellers night of the eight Lords

PASCAL 2
While Pascal 2 very slowly speeds up driven by sails of enormous dimensions
And passing Areas of irregular consistence referring to the four operating physical forces
The Lords tell their stories.
Thoughts about rules and their efficiency and sphere of activity
In dependence of the place in the porous space is the theme of the first Lord
In the vesicles of nonentity rules are created by imagination
Caged in fiction and simultaneously being the Master of the fiction
Being simultaneously the poet and the self created character
In a self constructed novel

DR. T. WHITE
Dr. T. White – capable of penetrating the walls
Between the worlds and manipulating the continuum of time –
is entering the scenery
  • once around Robbespierre
  • once as a companion of Alexander the Great
  • once in a cold night in St. Petersburg

 

AFTER 63 DAYS…
After 63 days and the introduction of the time agent
Pascal 2 is reaching the speed of 58 Mach
By passing and thereby sexually stimulating a huge
Space jellyfish – as big as an earthly continent –
Constantly hungry for a quantum of energy

 

HEAR THE VOICE…
Hear the voice of the shouting bard
Future, present and past, are melting into one
Hear the voice of the shouting bard
Future, present and past are melting into one
Look at the interacting dimensions
Recognize the floating dimensions
Intersecting and percolating like a liquid
Look at the interacting dimensions


ANIMAL THEME
Influenced by this strange contact the sixth Lord says:
‘There is only a gradual difference between
An organism and a machine. After thousands of years
Every organism is stepping out of its shadow and
Producing its CYBERNATICAL likeness:
A machine is the result of a modified organism‘.

CAPTAIN WREN / THE VOICE OF THE UNIVERSE
The crew of captain Wren – for years in a state
Beyond language an causal connection
During the passage of an unbearable emptiness
Was shocked by an announcement of the board computer
‘Control over the spaceship for only another ten minutes.
Brecause somebody wants to hold

A philosophical discussion with me!’
After this shock the crew was not able to decode the message
Of the later called Wren-configuration …
Speculatively defined as
THOUGHTS TRANSFORMEND IN MATERIAL QUALITY
The VOICE of the universe gave the multilinear reality a language
Or even the Voice creates the space?
Corresponding to the effects of time-folding and
Events-doubling the VOICE gave these phenomena
A philosophic basic beyond any recognizable understanding
Culminating in:
‘The bodiless space beyond my body is the result of all not realized
Possibilities about me’
‘The perception of another one is nothing else than the perception of
The doubling of myself

RHYTHM AND RHYME
Rhythm and Rhyme …Time …
At the same time
OUTSIDE OF MINE
Frequence, Resonance…vertical Currence
In different state of minds  
INSIDE OF MINE

TURNING IN CIRCLES
Turning in circles daydreaming  spirals
turning around and round round round
daydreaming turns
dancing with the shadow of your time-shifted twin
dancing with the shadow with your brother
dancing with the shadow of your timeshifted twin
dancing with the shadow with your sister

 

ANIMAL THEMA 2  (The Secret of Rhythm – Rhyme and Resonance)
The Key to the door of understanding is given by the seventh Lord:
Opening SECRET OF RHYTHM – RHYME AND RESONANCE
The interlaced connections between rhymes
setting in rhythmical vibrations, effecting a resonance
permit to enter worlds without frontiers
‘We measured the worth of the world in categories
Which refer to total feigned one!"
 

MEDUSA EYE  - Medusa‘ Mirroring
A dark pupil-like planet is drifting through galaxies in outerspace
And is fascinating the actors of the eighth Lords story with its grace
Medusa‘ eye, Medusa eye
her mode of perception
is transforming counterparts
into beautiful amorphous clusters
of temptation caged in stone and frozen immobility
Beyond space, time and causality
Reaching the realm of synchronicity
Beyond Good and Evil
In a universe of corresponding objects
And out-balanced forces
Time is changing into distance
(reflecting the old Lakota Language)
Language is a living creature/an organism borrowing someone else’ body
Distance is changing into intensity
And voodoo becomes real!

YAD - THE STRANGE ANIMAL FROM THE NORTH
Yad – as big a prompt – was crossing the landscape
Of different smelling molecules in a crystal
His travel-speed was about three millimeter in 30’000 years
His order:

To read the molecular-messages during his Voyage to the North
The observer of this very worthy and undestroyable crystal
Didn’t know anything about the exiting moment in Yad’s Life
As he perceived another intelligent creatures
In his crystal-desert

Over the horizon of millions of molecules
Yad saw the Strange Animal from the North
Not knowing to follow his identical brother
Born in a time-defect millions of years ago …
And The Observer didn’t know anything about the
Programming of the System…
