Interlude In Lovecraftian Entities For A Dionysian Friend
In a sense their global archetype is Yog Sothoth as lurkers in the bridge between the unknown and the utterly unknowable by definition, the radical experience of a touch in this borders. Not formalizable I would add, so generational producers of Dyonisian experiment when attempting to induce it´s presence, usually following Azatoth in method though. Picture the worn out metaphors of quasars as lines from where matter is birthed "spontaneously" into this "universe", or the opposing one of Black holes for what it counts. The space before the moment of spontaneous "birth" breeds the Old Ones, the border which is not physical or measurable or definable stands for yog-sototh, the experience of existing in that border not knowing what was before, what will be after, is Azathoth. To exist as witnessing the magick here is to reverse : humans often testify to Otherness from mankind´s perspective and from this perspective engage in the building of progressive Jacob´s Ladders ( the cistern countains to quote Blake), here the Otherness testifyes moment to moment the human consciousness, dances around it and waits to catch the prey ( Penteus) simply by it´s nature, the nature of entering and and assalting this dimension, old ones waiting to get in and all that ( the Fountain Overflows). Overflowing can indeed be treated as demonic or evil when you get back to human dimension, find no way to integrate, desire not to integrate, and can not simply forget what lays out/in.

True in the terms of co-dependent arising of every phenomenon, including the ones not pertaining to the usual classification as external, anyway an incorrect one as perception is the gateway to everything entering the subject. Not relevant if it was present before, if as an archetype it lay dead but dreaming, or if it was some sort of transcendence Sun in the background,it must be perceived to become operative to the subject.Again in terms of co-dependent arising there is no intrinsic reality of any perception away from the process of perceiving but in the logics of perception itself there is a structure or geometrical space where it arises, and an arithmetic progression were qualities are added or subtracted to that space defining a world of experience. I agree with those who consider the noumenon to be an irrelevancy, more even in revealing of magical worlds. A God, appart from being an experience first of all, is a tool to accumulate perception, a relational symbol between you and something that you have not perceived and, blinking quantics, created and made real. The process of approach will loose in being rational or at least deductive.Fractal thinking can implode the new while at the same time it does truly explore the details and the web of invocation of the formerly perceived. So, why cathegorize what is supposed to lead to post-humanity? More fulcral to debate and achieve forms of approaching and perceiving, stressing the How.
