"What we call 'normal' is a product of repression, denial, splitting, projection, introjection and other forms of destructive action on experience. It is radically estranged from the structure of being. The more one sees this, the more senseless it is to continue with generalized descriptions of supposedly specifically schizoid, schizophrenic, hysterical 'mechanisms.' There are forms of alienation that are relatively strange to statistically 'normal' forms of alienation. The 'normally' alienated person, by reason of the fact that he acts more or less like everyone else, is taken to be sane. Other forms of alienation that are out of step with the prevailing state of alienation are those that are labeled by the 'formal' majority as bad or mad."

message in a bottle

to everybody out there who's looking for me and can't find me:


i'm here - and there - and everywhere

i'm floating, flying, drifting

sailing, navigating, travelling

beyond radar

and i can't hear you

more noise than signal

get your frequency right

and you'll

know

where

i

am

I'll try to stay tuned :-).

Jeg drømte engang at jeg ikke kunne høre musikken for støj, men jeg vidste åbenbart alligevel at musikken var der et sted bagved. Så længe det bare er sådan, er det ikke helt tosset, tænker jeg.

Kærlige hilsner

Janne: Jeg tvivler ikke et sekund, at du har min frekvens :)

Nogen var ved at blive lidt bekymret. Syntes, det lød lige lovligt på kanten til "det maniske". Og det er måske heller ikke så meget andet, når man ikke bare tror, men ved at man kan flyve. Man skal nok bare lade være med at tage det alt for bogstaveligt ;)
