These are quotes from an ongoing multiplying expanding in every direction work, The Underground.
“Most people who engage in politics do so for the hope of attaining power, or for the friction between opponents. The friction is most frequent payoff. It satisfies because it stands in for art, which is the conscious invention of elements that wouldn’t ordinarily exist side by side. Notice this polarized proximity of elements is also a staple of alchemy. Alchemy is the transmutation of what is comfortably a “snoozing neighborhood” into a higher disjunction. Disjunction is always more open than symmetry. Symmetry is eventually boring.”
“There is a question people can ask themselves. What can I do to relieve my deepest boredom? That is a very productive inquiry. It shatters enclosures. It seeks open spaces that haven’t yet been beset by solutions.”
“Suppose, for example, the universe has the answers to 54678796578 specific questions. It would then be exposed as a machine. Now, if the mind has a habit of asking and answering questions, it is a close relative of the universe. This connection is called mind control. Perhaps not right away, but eventually.”
“Don’t worry about what other people do. They generally tie themselves to a railroad track and wait for the train. They are on that diminishing adventure. At best, they try to make their approach to the track interesting for others. Admit that you’re clairvoyant. Don’t be ashamed. You can see the climax before it happens. Go elsewhere. Find something else to do. Make it more exciting than the collision on the track. If you can, you’re possibly on your way to becoming an artist.”
“Sometimes people ask me what I’m doing. What is my goal? Here is an approximate answer. I’m running a school of imagination. It has no curriculum in the usual sense. It has no content. Content is what imagination has already achieved. I’m interested in what imagination has yet to invent. But that sentence has no application unless people access and deploy their imaginations. Therefore, it is the purpose of the school. It is enhanced by the fact that what imagination can do is limitless. What people can create and invent is endless. Now we’re talking about something interesting. At last.”
“The future is more ‘complicated’ than people think it is. First of all, it’s completely unwritten. Second, you invent the future you want. But as you do this, you discover more of what you want. Then you invent that. The cycle continues to widen. Gladly, it never halts. And that is the only reason the future never ends.”
