The Genius and the Goddess
At every instant every transience is eternally that transience. What it signifies is its own being, and that being (as one sees so clearly when one is in love) is the same Being with the biggest possible B. Why do you love the woman you're in love with? Because she is. And that, after all, is God's own definition of Himself: I am that I am. The girl is who she is. Some of her isness spills over and impregnates the entire universe. Objects and events cease to be the mere representatives of classes and become their own uniqueness; cease to be illustrations of verbal abstractions and become fully concrete. Then you stop being in love, and the universe collapses, with an almost audible squeak of derision, into its normal insignificance. Could it ever stay transfigured? Maybe it could. Maybe it's just a question of being in love with God. But that is neither here nor there. Or rather it's the only thing that's either here, there or anywhere; but if we say so, we'd be cut by all our respectable friends and might even end up in the asylum. So let's get back as quickly as possible to something a little less dangerous.

NOTE: This website is a doorway to StartOver.xyz the massively-multiplayer online-and-offline personal-transformation game. It offers you experiments to try that upgrade your thoughtware so you can create more possibility. Your thoughtware is what you use to think with. When you change your thoughtware, you go through a liquid state as your mind reorganizes itself. Liquid states can bring up uncomfortable feelings and emotions. By upgrading your thoughtware you build matrix to hold more consciousness. No one can do this for you. No one can stop you from doing it. Our theory is that when we collectively build one million more Matrix Points we will change the morphogenetic field of the human race for the better. Please choose responsibly to read this website. Reading this whole website is worth 1 Matrix Point. Doing any of the experiments below earns you additional Matrix Points.

P. S. It Is All True
You probably won’t believe what I am going to say.
You probably won’t believe it because I am using words.
Words won’t impact you enough for you to get it
Unless you have already been there.
My question to you is this: are you willing to recall a memory?
Because you have already been there.
And without having to think about it much you already know
That it is all true.
All the legends of gods and goddesses,
Of radiant golden floating temples made of marble columns and flowing silk,
Of Archetypal angels and demons, upperworlds and underworlds,
Of a sanctuary where uninterrupted being-with can occur.
It’s all true.
All the subtle energetic levels of multidimensional fluid reality
All of the best ideas communicated in this book
The wildest most outrageous inconceivable ideas in this book
Are all true.
Waiting to be explored, experienced, employed by you.
Does it matter?
Is it all true?
You can go directly to the core of the mythical labyrinth
And float in the being of the One
Any time that you achieve floating conditions.
It is not personal.
The opportunity never goes away.
Long before you were born and long after you die
The opportunity is there waiting.
She is there waiting
The One. She is waiting.
The beautiful, quiveringly tender, limitlessly accepting One.
The One with wisdom and knowing beyond words.
The One who waits, who can only wait
Until you the Man become a stillness sanctuary where She can rest
And “be-with” the brilliant radiance of Her being,
The glow of Her presence, the Countenance of Her raw wild power,
And Her peacefulness that surpasses all understanding.
Words are far too crude and solid to talk about this.
Even thoughts get in the way.
So much of what happens falls through the gaps between thoughts.
Nonetheless, it is all hereby confirmed to be true.
Now, tell me this. What are you going to do about it?
