and I drove down US 95, a festival of interconnected structures surrounding a central
fluid-filled ventricle of the forebrain and forming an inner
border of the cerebral cortex. The structures include the hippocampus,
amygdala, septum, anterior thalamic nuclei, mammillary bodies,
and cingulate cortex. The fornix is a long fiber bundle joining
the hippocampus to patterns
of speeding minds, to visit the Miami Museum,
but there wasn't parking.
|The next morning,
while I sat by the pool, talking to Carlos, the condo's manager,
a Guatemalan by birth, a
teacher by training."My father was a doctor, while I make
my living with practical engineering skills," A photographer,
too, he told me of a trip he made to Appalachia, where the poverty "is worthy of my native country." Then to South
Dakota's squalid conditions on the "res."
me of when, a young boy, he had peeked under the
Mary's skirt. "I
saw only a chunk of wood. From that day
on I've been an atheist." "It's all a mystery," I
replied. "Yes," he said, turning to leave."There's
sites in the Middle East from the early Neolithic where human
skulls were used for some ceremonial purpose.They were found at
Jericho, 'Ain Ghazal, Beisamoun and Cayonu (and many more, those
are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head).You could
find thigh-bone trumpets,
skull bowls, double-child-skull clapper drums (damaru), and bone
jewelry. All these implements were first fabricated by ancient
Indian Mahasiddhas (Great Adepts) and continued to be used in Tibet
to symbolize awareness of impermanence, transcendence of death,
and even transmutation of descriptions in the site reports, with reference
to the Mystery."
He began his oration in a curious and amusing
manner, though with an authoritative tone, his voice quivering
with anger and his gaunt finger pointing toward the dreamer.
What reason have you to call us your dream creatures and yourself
the creation of us all? If you are our creator we say equally
emphatically that so are we the creator of yourself. We are
all in the same boat, and you can claim no sort of higher existence
than ours. If, however, you want to be convinced of my statement,
I can show you the creator of us all, that is, of yourself
as well as ours. With these words he struck the dreamer on
the head with his heavy staff, who, in consequence, woke up
and found himself lying in bed with his mind extremely puzzled.
I never dream.
Me: You dream, you just don't remember your dreams.
Mother: Thank God.
