A magazine format book with illustrations. A wild bear-naked plunge into the salmon-leap cataract of consciousness. The author is a magician adept, understands the Cantos of Pound, and he is not afraid to use them.

Includes Wildeblood's exposition on the Pisan Cantos of Pound. "All things that are, are lights. {Omnia quia sunt, lumina sunt.} " An hermetic koan attributed to Scotus Erigena, who taught in the 9th c, but was ritually exhumed and condemned as a heretic during the Albigensian crusade of the 11th c. [105b] She cantossed herself at Pound, in the lines linked with the troubadour Sordello: "And if I see her not / No sight is worth the beauty of my thought." The thought, we all thought, of her "light limbs". [106a]

So many gems:

Take the time to check your trajectory. "If the world seems to be getting bigger and funnier all the time, your intelligence is steadily increasing. If the world seems to be getting smaller and nastier all the time, your stupidiety is steadily increasing." --Simon Moon [137b]
Insrcibed and Signed by RA Wilson. ( )
