in girum imus nocte
et consumimur igni
A fire of unknown origin took my baby away.
Fire of unknown origin took my baby away.
Swept him up and off my wavelength.
Swallowed him up like the ocean in a fire thick and gray.
Death comes sweeping thru the hallway like a ladies’ dress.
Death comes riding down the hallway in it’s sunday best.
Death comes driving; death comes creeping;
Death comes I can’t do nothing.
Death goes, there must be something that remains.
Death, it made me sick and crazy
‘Cause that fire took my baby away.
–Patti Smith – Fire Of Unknown Origin
we turn in the night
and are consumed by fire

“One thing that I’m really curious about though is how does this stuff get made? How did somebody get the money for all that equipment and the room etc. That room is in Omotesando which is one of the most expensive places in Tokyo. It seems like it would be really fun to contribute to something like that or maybe even to do it. Kind of like making some of the small things you’d see at a rave but that particular exhibit easily cost $50k to $100k in equipment alone.

“Know that the whole world is a mirror,
in each atom are found a hundred blazing suns.
If you split the center of a single drop of water,
a hundred pure oceans spring forth.
If you examine each particle of dust,
a thousand Adams can be seen.
A universe lies hidden in a grain of millet.
everything is brought together at the point of the present.
From each point along that circle thousands of forms are drawn.
Each point, as it revolves in a circle,
is at times a circle, at others a turning circumference.”
–Mahmoūd Shabestarī (1288–1340)
This dream is for you
So pay the price
Make one dream come true
You only live twice
