Interesting question you that someone asked me, if I feel love when I sign my letter 'love, Clinton'
The answer is: yes.
I feel extraordinary love, which means, love is there for me because I say it is there for me. It is a commitment, a certainty. It is exactly like what I said above when I said that the call time of 8pm Wednesday 10 February is 'perfect'. It is perfect because I say it is perfect and I experience it very satisfactorily as truly 'perfect'. It is a pleasant set of sensation, when something is perfect, when I am committed, and when I state that I love you. I love these sensations. I create them often for myself. I am creating the sensations right now in writing these clear words to you, opening doors for me to go through into new spaces where there are many new doors to choose from, and opening the same doors for you to go through also, if you want to.
I have enough experience with Scar, my Gremlin, to know that if I am feeling any kind of 'hurt' or 'resentment' or 'being betrayed' etc. that this is him trying to create low drama food for himself. We have arranged a different deal. He does not get to do that in my life anymore. I feed him 5 of his favorite foods: e.g. chocolate, science fiction movies, buying more books and wooden spoons than I can read or use, collecting empty jars for grains and beans, growing tropical plants that I know I cannot take with me on my next journey. And I feed him TONS of high drama food, for example, one hour ago I was just video interviewed by Martina Niklis with no idea what she would ask me about. It was high level fun. In less than on hour I will have a Zoom call with Max Wilbert who is now camped out on Thacker Pass in Nevada for the Deep Green Resistance project to stop corporations from blowing up the mountains for mining Lithium. I think we will talk about that he is trying to fight the existing gameworlds to change them. And I am trying to build new gameworlds that I and others can inhabit that make the existing gameworlds irrelevant. And yet we need both of us. Yet if he created an initiation program for young people to move there with him on Thacker Pass https://www.facebook.com/max.wilbert/videos/10104131416016240 they would occupy the 17,000 acres in Nevada the land would be used for something better than Lithium mining.
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 Bubble in the Bubble Map of the free-to-play, massively-multiplayer, online-and-offline, thoughtware-upgrade, matrix-building, personal-transformation, adventure-game called StartOver.xyz. It is a doorway to experiments that upgrade your thoughtware so you can relocate your point of origin and create more possibility. Your knowledge is what you think about. 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 transformational feelings and emotions. By upgrading your thoughtware you build matrix to hold more consciousness and leave behind a low drama life of reactivity. No one can upgrade your thoughtware for you. More interestingly, no one can stop you from upgrading your thoughtware. Our theory is that when we collectively build 1,000,000 new 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 earns you additional Matrix Points. Please use Matrix Code ARCHLOVE.00 to log your Matrix Point for reading this website on StartOver.xyz. Thank you for playing full out!

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?
