The uncertain shape
by Jon Rappoport
December 11, 2014
In the year 4016, a glurb called Zeye posted the following (I translate it into old English):
“The language we now speak and write, which has transformed our society beyond measure, allowing us to communicate and think in dimensions previously unrecognized, began as a brief document written by an obscure historian in a place called Cincinnati over a thousand years ago. Here, for the first time, is that document—-
Logic is for this world. It is an essential discipline when truth and validity are at stake, when deception is promoted, when false realities are built.
Imagination is for other dimensions, other worlds. (It can, of course impact this world.)
These other dimensions exist. More accurately, they are invented. The potential number of them is infinite.
There is a complex black shape on a white background. The viewer looks at it for fifteen minutes. During that time, he sees many things. Some of these things have no names or positions or existence as objects in the physical world.
This one complex shape suggests, or is seen to have, multiple possibilities. Not five, not six, not 20. No one knows how many.
This fact is uplifting. Not everything can be nailed down. Therefore, space is open.
A person senses more space. Undefined space.
The uncertain shape is not yet the coin of this realm.
It is a far more valuable currency. Some painters know this.
Systems don’t know this. Religions don’t know this. Technocrats don’t know this. Governments and corporations don’t know this.
If you lined up several hundred of these ambiguous shapes and then began to work with them, you could use them to communicate with others. For the first hundred years or so, nobody would know what they were talking or writing about. It would be a confounding mystery. But gradually, a new kind of language would emerge, ever-changing.
Meanings would not be stable. Ever. But they would have great and immediate impact, like music.
We would enter new spaces (and times). Even the most literal minds would eventually catch on and give up their self-imposed ignorance.
Every religion and spiritual system would go into sharp decline, as people realized those authoritarian hoaxes were artificially frozen dimensions inside open explorations and voyages.

An inkblot language, a poetry of/in pictographs…the language of the artist.
Yes, I agree.
Jon…it is people like you that gives the small voices something to resonate and work with and out the truth so that those friggin corps of death do not monopolise us. Period. For Future Generations! x
Is now the the moment to open up to unknown realms that are beyond our temporal/usual gaze of inspection? Is there a reality that IS reality or are all realities ever shifting and changing? And how is my perception involved in these or this reality/realities?
In the span of a lifetime can one open up to all that is beyond and become fully cognizant without memory lapses? Or are all our mental meanderings simply an exercise in ultimate futility?
And how is the original Cause involved in all this? Or our we to accept that there is an original cause of all causes? An eternal transcendental realm might exist that is beyond our range of investigation, and if so how do we find that realm if we don’t have the tools to enter it?
I love this piece. Opened up my imagination with a minimum of words, and made me feel the urge to create music again after many, many years of inactivity. And the new music will most definitely have a level of complexity that will allow it to be perceived in an unknown number of ways. The Rorschach Shock. When I look back at the volume of work I accomplished, the pieces that I personally still enjoy the most are the abstract ones. They keep changing, as if to have a life of their own. Cheers Jon, and congratulations on a great new blog!
Thank you for your continuing work in the advancement of awareness. You are an inspiration to redouble my own efforts. Keep fighting the good fight and I’ll see you on the other side.

“There is a complex black shape on a white background. The viewer looks at it for fifteen minutes. During that time, he sees many things. Some of these things have no names or positions or existence as objects in the physical world.”
This is how the First Humans on this Earth must have felt when looking at all the things surrounding them. There were no words for all these things.
When and How did the language start? Why is there so many languages on this planet? How did this happen? Did these people wanted other tribes not to understand them… to protect their secret discoveries perhaps?
Humans were born with vocal cords and larynx (I believe, since I reject Darwin’s theory of evolution), still language was not invented.
How did it start? By gestures, a bit like charade’s games? Or by sounds of emotions like crying, laughing or screaming out of fear or rage? Or what?
Could they read other people’s minds? But then again, how can a mind think without words?
It seems impossible to think without words, unless emotions can perceive facts beyond words.
Maybe some extra-terrestrial entities came to Earth to teach language to Humans. But then again, who thought these entities language?
I’m no scientist and I haven’t resolved this first puzzle about the beginning of language, so don’t ask me to resolve the puzzle for year 4016… lol
