    Human Evolution Rainbow Spiral Dance Machine, p... at 20.20

    4. A hand. A human hand. Grasping, releasing, twisting, pulling, pushing, delving, splitting, crushing, creating, asking, answering, digging. Directing fire, Dividing wood with stone, digging deeply into ground, breaking roots, crossing boundaries, discovering metal, devising shelter, gathering and collaborating, crafting the human identity with careful hands, artful fingers. Song of distance from the humus and the elements, to find our crunchy undigestable colony, a separate mind, a spirit freak dance we control, we are controlled by our maps and map new systems discarding and attacking, we build and thrust and jump and play our games of intellect and ingenuity. Entities dance from our drums---&rt;chinese dragons, horned goddeses, trickster spiders, incestuous thunder fathers, brilliant flower daughters, sentient spirit centipedes, animals of cloud, brawny dancers of wind and word, unwinding from our spiral brains, branching into the spaces we hold, houses and halls. Flowers and songs, we metaphor and mix the complex chains of causality that brought us here. Heroes and monsters make the human dance. Beneath the clouds and starry sky, we sing the earth the way we see it and shape it, as we have been shaped, and will be, and no one is in control, and the whole burden breathes, to birth its own, to be carried, and hand off, and heart beats, and overlapping rhythms, family trees, fucking young women and men, interwoven arms and legs, cinderblock homes and dirty rivers, spice blends we are the food of the gods, the fruit of the world tree, sonic freakout, springing forth in our barbaric, acrobatic, aromatic spinal stack spiral brain artful hand padded foot thumping heart beat the drum draw the line heal the holes reveal the spires of enfolded intelligence that brought us here, from 1 to 4, overlapping 3s and 4s, engrave the truth on rocks before we die away. See the human dance spread the sky with beautiful words, and rest, and sleep, unseen, in dreams.

    3. Entrancing pulse of life. Pulse of life, entranced. Entrain to this growth, from the sea to the dirty dry, muddy rooty blush of The birds, the trees, the monkeys, the lizards, the blues and purples, browns and tans, Jungles. Where insects skitter their polyrhythmic hive minds over the scaley leafy skin of an earthly mother reaching her vining, pointing, sucking, ripening body into the ground, into the sky, into the fresh air in the lungs; fresh air so full with the sweet life, the sweet death, the compost the humus the mushrooms creative recycling crush and crash of life overtaking life in a constant dance, in a surging tide of leaf, of bark, of tooth and fur and wingbeats on the rain damp air. And wings spread into the blue sky, creativity explores this gruff terrain. Relationships in harmony. The music of 1, 4, 5. The music of 5, 4, 1. Web of fertility woven into new shapes by this metamind ecology. And what fruit does this sprawling wrestling fornication bear? what is that reaching body there on the forest floor?

    2. Deeper now, where the whales go when they die, where the sharks follow the scent of blood and the castles of crystallized minerals, mysterious caves full of exoskeletal life and slowly dripping calcified water, where pollution seeps down and hearts break, bodies are blackened by octopus secretions. Hunger, hunger and loss, loss. Bring all the breath, all the bravery, all the brawn to this black black world, which will crush the life out to feed a new hungry mouth. Competition. Grow up. Be a badass, and fight the gravity that threatens to end you. Look, listen, breathe, feel, taste, smell. A flight from that place in bittersweet rocketship Adios, to cry for the dead world and fly for life. These ghosts are real, and they deserve to be seen. But we must away. Our goodbye is a prayer for peace, as we move away. Away from the teeth breaking down bodies. A bubbling spiralling rise to the light, breaking the surface of the old world, emerging to the wind on saltwater saturated skin.

    1. The coral reefs and splashy shallows, the starry sands and ocean spray rainbows, dolphins, children, tension of almost blooming flowers, ecstatic orgasmic plasmid mouths and lips smacking with sweet delight. The tendrilous reaching of single celled organisms, babies crawling, fishies learning swimming, rain falling on warm sunny shallows, chlorophyll learns to twist sunlight into new forms of energy, a rolling twisting dance, a pressing tension dance. Rocks on rocks, feet on sand, bodies filling with air.

    i wonder if you could make the spectrum of the kick a little smaller, like giive it a cut so it's in the super low end and a little spike around 1-4khz.. it's a little big when the other stuff comes in
