New LL the Portmanteau video: The Superposition of Brain Content



The superposition of brain content comes with the superposition of simultaneous existences of differing probabilities.
Happy Christmas! It is possible and probable that stress and happiness coexist. Which cat will you observe yourself to collapse into this year? -------------------------------------------
I have a new properly animated title sequence! What do you think?
-------------------------------------------
The Superposition of Brain Content

When will I see you? 
You'll see me 
In a galaxy
Far far away
Behind the moon
Beyond the rain
Shot from the bow

Off to that land I go
The desert of crawling thoughts
Substance of vapour 
Weight like marble 
Downy as cloudy cotton
Slap like flying fish wings 

Waves of the ocean
soft water crashing 
hard with sharp devotion

Where brutality increases  
The softer its substance
Accelerated with distance
Superposition of materiality
There and not plurality 

There I slip slip slip
Down the soft sharp 
Dip dip dip
Slide slide slide
Kisses on the other side.

In this video we have the pleasure of hearing the vocal chords of Sir Alexander Holt.

New LL the Portmanteau video: The World of Wordshapes


I prefer books. For company, for education. Everything, really.

In the books they're just ideas, they're just words; and so much more aligned with how I see the world. I see words everywhere. I just turn everything into words. Everything is shaped like letters.

In "Plato's Cave" we have the reflection of the ultimate concept. We look at the world around us: the shapes are simply the shadows of what the concept is. I jump straight to the concept. I see the shadow but I'm thinking of the concept. The way I do that is by wording the concept.

This is why I prefer reading. When I'm reading, things are more real. It's like skipping a step because I go straight into the mind, I go straight into the words. Of course the words are describing humans, actions, situations and so on, but in books specifically they're doing it in a way that is much easier for my brain to process.

A lot of people, when they read the words, as they're reading: they're imagining a scene or they're visualising the situation or sympathising with emotions. I'm just taking the words on.

It's a translation that is already done for me, which is a translation I have to do in everyday life. Maybe it's just because I'm a writer that words matter more to me.

My brain has obsessively started to transform everything into words.

And when I say words I don't mean speech, I mean the shapes of the letters that make up the image of the written out word.  This is how I visualise the world.

Rest in the peace which does not exist in the world of the living. Rest in peace say we who are alive without. Stand tall and look for beauty I say to the living today.

New LL the Portmanteau video: What if Internet was no Object?


What if Money was no Object? What if Internet was no object?

The internet is democratic.
Systemic power structures are replicated but there is potential inherent in its function.
Potential for revolution, for voices to exist and to be seen and heard.

What are you afraid of?
The internet is a tool.
You are who uses it. To be afraid
of a tool is to be afraid of yourself.

The internet is real.
Reality becomes information in your mind. Right now your brain is processing this information: GO. The shape of these letters, leaves, words, meanings.

The internet is empowering.
You’re in control of this tool. It is your choice to
create, share, learn, communicate, enjoy and contribute.

New LL the Portmanteau video: Where are You Going?


Where are you going? I do not know. All I know is that I am not standing still. I am walking, hopping, chasing, catching, treading up and forward. One step, two step, ten step. Like time, spinning round, here, now. Where I am going, locality is irrelevant. I go where my ink fingers and my vigilant eyes command me. I go where I bathe in logic and feast on beauty. Where I am going is a paradigm, a place in my mind, a view. Locality becomes a mere context to my where, and is as easily replaced as it is in fact denied me. Where are you going?

New LL the Portmanteau video: How do you value yourself?


How do you value yourself?

How do you derive value from within yourself, for yourself? How does that value manifest itself in your understanding of reality? Yes, you. You reading this. Think. Good. I won't ask you what. I will ask you, how did you do it? Did you write it down? Did you think it? Were you too lazy to bother? Did you not expect a call for action? Do you consume your reality passively?

My Answer:
I derive worth from WRITING.

I write in order to materialise myself, in order to materialise the surrounding reality through my mind. I write to acknowledge that the self exists by externalising and materialising the reality of immaterial thoughts.

Here lies the question of valuing oneself. The less I think of my own thoughts as worthy, my own words as commendable, the less am I capable of existing, wetting paper with ink, filling screens with data, producing waves in the silence, occupying space with materiality.

Writing becomes an act of rebellion against the devaluation of my own MIND, a tangible reminder of my existence and worth.

How do YOU value yourself?

Write your answer below in the comments.

Come on!
