    Stream of Consciousness

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by zdoogy, Feb 24, 2013.

    I realize I can only find whatever indefinable object that will make my undefinable place on the existential road better. Whether it be a symbol, proverb, goddamn pistol, guitar, sweet melody, death, life, the universe, a fact, a direction, a heaven, a hell, a god, a demon, a mythology, a belief, an illusion, a fallacy, a comfort, a story, a role. I know it could be hidden in anything except the eternal nothingness which stands before me. I know that what I am looking for is in the crystalline ripple of self-reflective mirrors all shining their light on the hologram which is me and which is the one thing I cannot see. I realize the reality of unknown reality and space and time fucking with your mind until your brain cells conspire and turn your thoughts unkind. I hope to god that things are on an incline, steep or not, because if they are on a hill than I have found a living, dreaming, hell which may be a jar of my brain, but at least I am that error. Maybe that is all I am. An error in a boring fucking book that the publisher missed, an error in darwinian evolution that society has kept going with medicine so people craving for a higher reality find an ascension only in the temporary pill. But at least I am that error. And while space and time is infinite and incomprehensible I will walk a path through it that no one else will walk. I wish I could relate inclines and downslopes or any of my so little and poorly absorbed knowledge of math, but the only thing I am certain of is that certainty is uncertain.

    If you are I'm missing it too.

    zdoogy, what exactly are you asking or trying to say?

    I was hopping that the 'eternal nothingness' might mean a blank page=writer's block?

    It's missing something, but it was a hilarious read.

    I think this was posted to be read/critiqued. There doesn't seem to be an actual question here.

    I was all geared up for a discussion on stream of consciousness. The Woolf fan inside of me is most disappointed.

    Maybe the OP wanted to discuss it, but used Stream of Conscious to discuss.

    Why don't people read the rules before posting?

    Next time I want to make a popular thread, I'll post something that makes no sense. Seems to attract more attention than meaningful things. Just saying. :p
