Out from under ‘language violence’
Notes from The Magician Awakes — a project-in-progress

People shrink back from language as an expression of unbounded imagination. They’re afraid of it. At best, they might want to view it as a caged wild animal in a zoo. They prefer machine-speak. Cutting themselves off from the larger part of what they are is not a problem: they’ve forgotten what they are. Their wellsprings are not available to them. As long as that is the case, they’re in a prison, a fact it might take them 10,000 years to recognize…
The only true and lasting compassion for others occurs when a person knows his own power and his own freedom from others.
Yes, his freedom from others.
The squirming kind of compassion that is based on self-sabotage and self-immolation is a pretense. It is an attempt to elevate “misery loves company” to a height it doesn’t deserve.
In the world, one is supposed to turn himself inside out and abdicate Self, in order to have empathy for others.
This is a straight con.
It is, in fact, petty egoism parading as caring about others.
Self is not that. Self is not a little worn-out tattered ego presenting itself as a saint-in-training.
Neither is Self a drooling greedy entity obsessed with possessions.
Self exists on a much higher and deeper level.
Power and Self are as naturally connected as sun and sky.
We are now in the era of the synthetic artificial victim. People are taught to discover every possible reason the actions of others might affect them negatively. It’s a trendy game. A massively destructive game. “Taking offense” is the theme that keeps the psychological pieces moving on the board.
If you want to belong, you need to either take offense or confess to having given offense.
At this rate, every word in the language will eventually be labeled a potential insult, and instead people will be speaking in numbers, each of which is meticulously defined by some massive bureaucracy composed of former losers who are now winners…and want their revenge.
When the individual realizes his own imagination and his power to create, he can then embark on an entirely different course.
The government, the State, society, and civilization will never understand or acknowledge this. Nor will any group.
It is left to the individual.
But this is nothing new.
There never was a system/structure into which a person could plug, in order to receive what he most profoundly desired.
That is a good thing.
To find the tradition of imagination, one looks to artists from every part of the world and every culture and time.
There are always artists who break free and express something that defies conventional analysis.
As Oscar Wilde wrote: “No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.”
And even more to the point, Wilde wrote: “Art is Individualism, and Individualism is a disturbing and disintegrating force. Therein lies its immense value. For what it seeks to disturb is monotony of type, slavery of custom, tyranny of habit, and the reduction of man to the level of a machine.”
Centers of learning are prisons of the mind. They are making more and more rules about what can and can’t be said and written, in order to create the illusion that they are protecting the feelings of “the oppressed.” Terrified professors are going along with the farce, cowards that they are.
Colleges are governments and churches of The Doctrine.
So be it.
This leaves even more territory for the individual.
