Marche arrière

When you look through a magnifying glass, the image distorts as you move in and out of focus.
At one point, the image inverts.
I often wonder exactly what the image is at that precise point.
Perhaps a portal into another world?
A world where there is no concept of "up" or "down"?

Perhaps an omnidimensional galaxy free of motion sickness?
Or an nondimensional infinity free of positional prejudice?
Maybe an extradimensional film of pure nothingness?
A Heisenbergian bipolar dilemma?
An chimerical world of passive agressionality?
A paradoxical praxomatic pumpkin shell?

A dream of blessed oblivion?

Captain Beefheart wondered once about the black paper between a mirror.
Was this what he was talking about?
Is blackness the same as nothingness?
If so, can we sneak up behind it and shoot it in the back?

When the cabbage boils down, it's up to you.


  1. Or maybe when the pumpkin boils down... (Who is the other Lane Savant?)

  2. Lost my password for Lane Savant. Lane Savant 1 is the new Lane Savant. As OK to Laugh is the new Feel Free to Laugh. Still the same idiot pushing the buttons.

  3. "A Heisenbergian bipolar dilemma?"
    This is what I've been suffering from for decades; the experts say nothing can be done... :-)

  4. So much to wonder about...
