Thinking on this a lot, actually, def didn't think ya pulled it outta yer bunny tail 🐇

An intersection of alchemy, molting, sorting + TPD has been brewing in my mind (especially since my kids are on Harry Potter these days hah)

Have you ever seen a spider shed it's exoskeleton? (Oh the link won't post here) I often see the metaphor of a butterfly with TPD, and I'm so into that, but am more drawn to snakes + reptiles and how they molt then slither on. Leaving skin behind. Hermit crabs dig a lil cave and devour their shell to create new a new harder outer skin. Mollusks make pearls from irritants, stress and literal shit from the ocean. There's so many ways to transmute.

(and inspiration to draw on, and sort/identify with how we move through dynamisms)

Thanks for this, Emma! Fun mental excerise while making my way through chores today!

I'm glad you like it! And totally the butterfly thing works for me - going inward, becoming a molten liquid thing, and then re-emerging as something different from the rearranged mush... it resonates!

(and always appreciate your whimsy, your intro is perfect. What do we have to lose by putting it out there?!)

Thanks as always. I keep coming back to https://Robert-Temple.com's work on plasma (recently his 2022 book A New Science Of Heaven), and https://GrahamHancock.com's work (most recently America Before - The Key to Earth's Lost Civilization) - and @Graham_Hancock on twitter/X.

Plasma in this context is the 4th state of matter (aether or ether, after solid liquid gas).

Alchemy, quantum, entanglement theory, information theory, the 'soul' - in fact ANY words or semiotics are merely attempts to explain the inexplicable, and what does not need explaining.

We are all products of generations of brainwashing, especially driven by fear of our dying, and this has been leveraged by empires and governments for centuries, and millennia; part systemic and part intentional and wilful.

We can wonder does anything actually exist outside of our imaginations?

Are we not all facets of an illusory reality, in which 8 billion people are actually one, nothing and everything?

The ancients were able to build the pyramids with energies that humans have long forgotten and lost the abilities to use, and yet the clues are in manifesting and in the infinite power of love, especially of our 'self', lest we self-destruct, even more rapidly than a human 'lifetime' tends to be.

There is no real difference between being alive and dead, except the illusions we create for ourselves.

Anyway, love, infinitely of course.
