"I see Paradise when I look at my lady nude"

I forget who I paraphrase here.

Pierre Vidal, as PSmith suggested,
quoted by Pound in his first prose work,
THE SPIRIT OF ROMANCE, 1909.

Le Paradise Nec-est Pas Artificiel
But exists in fragments
the smell of mint for example.
--from the Death Cell at Pisa, Canto 80 (or so, 1945).

Yodhe and Bogus--

All thought creates the experiences that confirm it in some sense.
But I wish to hell and to whatever gods there may be that Yodhe confines
future experiments to the Bush Crime Family; and also I hope he
considers the possibility that an ancient magick tradition contains some
validity.

The tradition that holds what you put out in Magick comes back multiplied three times

I have never experimented with black magick, but that law seems to work with
healing magick, so think about it.

Dear Bogus,

I agree 100%,
nothing even remotely like original sin
appears in Confucianism, Buddhism, or Epicureanism --
and all avoid grumpiness.

As Nietzsche said
"One should put on medical gloves
before handling the Christian scriptures."

In the Chaos Magic class, Pete Carroll postulates that the linear sequence of time only appears that way to us.  That time actually runs forwards and backwards.

Another way of saying it. The universe not only appears to have a non-local mind but also a non-temporal (linearly sequential) one.

He uses this theory to explain magical events such as enchantment and divination.

Seems to explain Joyce a little also.

Joyce identifies Finnegans Wake
as "occurring at no spatial time."
One Joyce commentator, Benstock,
has found two space satillites in Finnegans Wake.
Dozens of others before me have found the Atom Bomb, etc.
John Aribald Wheeler, nobel laurate in physics,
also speculates about current experiments influencing the Big Bang
in a timeless universe.

I just got out of the hospital
(don't worry, I'm feeling better already)
and will develop this further if anybody wants me to,
after I feel a little better.

The System Admin typed this,
I only dictated. So now, like Charly Chaplin,
I can call myself the Great Dictator.

Mario's resemblance to Jesus is not something Joyce invented

It was widely commented upon and Joyce planted deliberately in the newspaper chapter , the cave of winds
so the reader would be prepared for it
and

I still don't understand how the actor John Cusack got involved in all this

A friend dropped by today and mentioned that she had been reading the Sirens chapter of  Ulysses.  She said she almost heard the music when Simon Dedalus sang Martha.
 
     That reminded me  of one of Joyce’s weirdest synchro-meshes. In Europe, in 1904, the tenor best known for his rendition of Martha,. named Mario, seems also famous for “looking just like Jesus”.  This association of Martha, Mario and Jesus marks the overture to a crescendo of synchronicities because at the moment Simon starts to sing Martha in the bar, Bloom at a table begins writing a letter to Martha Clifford, a woman with whom he is having a platonic (postal) affair. The link Simon-Martha-Bloom reminds us that both Simon
and Bloom serve as "fathers" to Stephen Dedelus.
   
     Bloom signs his letters to Martha “ Henry Flower”,  borrowing the name of a real man who had quit the Dublin police force  in 1902 after being widely suspected of murder.
 
     Michael Cusack , the most overt and violent anti-semite in the book, tangled with Bloom one hour earlier at Barney Kiernan’s pub..

     Now it gets weird. 

   In 1942, ----21 years after Ulysses was published, and 1 year after Joyce’s death—a dying old woman in Dublin  summoned a solicitor to take her confession that she had murdered the person Henry Flower had been accused of murdering.

     The solicitor who took her confession was John Cusack, the son of Michael Cusack who had tormented Bloom for being Jewish.

     Both Stephen Dedalus and Bloom are identified with Jesus numerous times throughout the novel, Bloom especially in the Cyclops chapter where Cusack threatens to “crucify” him. And of course Ulysses as a whole is isomorphic to Jesus’ parable of the good Samaritan, and the climax comes when Bloom in “orthodox samaritan fashion” rescues Stephen from the gutter
     
                                             

                   


Good grief! What is this -- some kind of a joke?
   --IN COLD BLOOD


A report to the UN human rights commission in Geneva has concluded that Iraqi children were actually better off under Saddam Hussein than they are now.
 This, of course, comes as a bitter blow for all those of us who, like George Bush and Tony Blair, honestly believe that children thrive best when we drop bombs on them from a great height, destroy their cities and blow up hospitals, schools and power stations.

Reading involves deciphering....See
"How to Read" in COINCIDANCE

I regard the synagogue scene as an early manifestation of the spirit of HILARITAS
that EZ considers divine, and he sounds to
me very fond off the happy snuff-sniffing crowd, both
in Canto 22 and in the Pisan flashback.

The anti-semitism of the Arab seems ridiculous to me,
especially since he accepts Ez’s opinion of Yussef as a damn good fellow,

[Yussef a real guy Pound knew and liked.]

The eye that can see ugliness in this jolly Shule
cd probably see racism in Hucklebery
Finn and anti-Chinese bias in Cants 52-61.....

AGASSIZ told a pupil to write a paper on a fish, which he gave him.
The student read enough to produce a paper, which Agassiz
rejected. Several more attempts and rejections followed.
At last the sudent cried "What DO you want of me?"

Agassiz replied "LOOK at the fish!"

b……….h means nothing to me, or to any Pound commentator I’ve read

He did use dots for the rotters in Cantos 14-15.

Canto 76’s “each in the name of his god” [from Micah] indicates Ez’s acknowledement that the torah
contains at least one trascendence of monotheistic
bigotry. Cf  “not out at interest” [David], “with righteousness redeem Zion” [Ezekiel, in a diatribe
against animal sacrifice], all recognizing the parts
of Judaic tradition that EP admired.

Similarly the repeated “from Mohammed no popery”
later [Thrones cantos] means that Ez saw at least one decent feature in Islam

And “life however small (Upanishads)” sez in
4 words that Ez did not reject ALL of Hinduism,
as well as carrying on the Animal Rights theme
from Micah and Apollonius.

Ez remains Confucian/gnostic/Epicurean but
tries to be fair to the other guys.

AGASSIZ AND THE FISH

Ez often told a yarn about Louis Agassiz and a fish...


I have devoted my whole life to the study of Nature, and yet a single sentence may express all that I have done. I have shown that there is a correspondence between the succession of Fishes in geological times and the different stages of their growth in the egg, -- that is all. It chanced to be a result that was found to apply to other groups and has led to other conclusions of a like nature.
Louis Agassiz, 1869

the same chapter that contains gURANIUM also contains
100s of battles from the past
4 from World War II
[including Raum and Atems]
and
