Art-Speak from Other Worlds

Sometimes what we want to say cannot be expressed in the linear alphabetic word-language of your species. In music, this is why polyphonic music and then orchestras were employed: to suggest rich textures of experience-meaning.                   Since we’re using a print/visual medium to communicate to your people […]

Textures of Reality

This in from Zordak: Part of the reason we travel among the dimensions is that it is just so wondrous and thick and interesting! The tiniest event in your reality resonates with layer upon layer of circumstance. The history of each  element that led to that even, the stories of the elements that went into […]

Zordak’s Easter

My little flying saucer little green man friend Zordak was explaining: The Easter Bunny is an example of neoteny—the tendency of species to take on the qualities of the young child—which evokes instinctual responses of “cute” and the desire to nurture, to have around as pets, or stuffed toys.  It speaks to the archetypes of […]

Meshuggenosis: 21st Century Neurosis

(Meshugginah: Yiddish word for crazy. Maybe just eccentric.) My grandkids will not be neurotic in the way their grandparents were, products (so it was thought) of the parenting of their parents. We were scolded too much or not enough, given too much freedom or not enough. Always the analysts—the arbiters of blame—could find a problem […]
