I once read a book by Quentin Crisp. I don’t know how I found it, nor what the title was. But I do know that my unconscious frequently sends me a particular statement that appeared in this book. I know this message is important because:
(1) Environment: in the message picture, I am reading the book in the kitchen of a house I used to live in, which kitchen was at basement level i.e. lower than the rest of the house; the Unconscious (Metaphysical Twin) resides in tunnels, cellars, pits, basements, lofts, treehouses and attics. KITCHENS are pivotal in Alchemy and other eastern Spiritual disciplines.
(2) Quentin Crisp is talking from a carriage and waves a handkerchief (Symbolism-rich).
(3) Frequency of the message.
(4) This is the sole recollection of the whole book.
The statement was about the human body and said something like: for as long as humans breathe oxygen they will be human. Once they start to breathe carbon dioxide or any other element they will become a different life form, separate from humans and with their own distinctive characteristics and needs. In other words, they will have either evolved or devolved…. from their original state, to another state.
Whoever you are, if you spend enough time with people whose conscious mind reverberates to a particular wavelength , then you will become one of them.
For everyone who worships at the altar of Mammon.
