sparkling like a star in our hand...
and melting like a snowflake.”

The Alien Within
This one started out as a comment to a post from the Secret Sun:

Ockham, the Occult and the Ultraterrestrials

There is certainly a trickster and spiritual element to all this Alien/UFO mystery. Reminds me of some Zen teaching methods like the Koan and other seemingly irrational behaviour and discourses employed by ancient Zen masters. It all seems to work with the purpose of breaking/fracturing the normal human logic, rational, official paradigm, or mind program/matrix, forced in our minds since birth. Once that is achieved some kind of transformation happens.

"Rorschach Fractal" or "The Joker"
When I look out there, I feel like I'm just seeing Rorschach blots everywhere. Each person, element, event, idea, symbol, word, is like a fractal or Rorschach blot of information, shape, meaning, energy, and when I perceive them, I feel they have no absolutely definitive meaning worth pursuing or converting into a belief, except that which I want to see and interpret intentionally/consciously or unintentionally/unconsciously, thus creating an enormous amount of interpretations and perceptions in my mind leading to misunderstanding and confusion in me and others.

The Mind
When born into this world, we get plunged into a river of information, where each one of us is forced to play a role in this drama/game that seems to have been written by a crazy idiot. The pure, empty and virgin mind of the child has no alternative but to identify, assimilate the rules and participate in this game of civilization.
As a photographic paper out of the box and exposed to sunlight, the child's mind will initiate a process of assimilation of information and learning through observation and imitation of their surrounding environment. In an environment not always of love and understanding, but charged with emotional blackmail, punishment and repression, the future adult begins this way the build up of his personality, learning a language and education that are essentially dualistic, thus preparing us for the "win or lose" game of civilization.
