An All-Moving Darkness

Quote ( View Quotes )
Collapse This

“ 'Our bodies are but one manifestation of the energy, the activating force that sets in motion all the objects, all the bodies of this world and enables them to exist as they do. This activating force is something like a shadow that is not on the outside of all the bodies of this world but is inside of everything and thoroughly pervades everything--an all-moving darkness that has no substance in itself but that moves all the objects of this world, including those objects which we call our bodies. While I was in the throes of my gastrointestinal episode at the hospital where I was treated, I descended, so to speak, to that deep abyss of entity where I could feel how this shadow, this darkness, was activating my body. I could also hear its movement, not only within my body but in everything around me, because the sound that it made was not the sound of my body. It was in fact the sound of this shadow, this darkness, which was a powerful roaring--the sound of strange and bestial oceans moving upon and incessantly consuming black and endless shores.' ”

Tibet: Carnivals?
Ligotti: Ceremonies for initiating children into the cult of the sinister.
Tibet: Gas stations?
Ligotti: Nothing to say about gas stations as such, although I've always responded to the smell of gasoline as if it were a kind of perfume.

Or humans are meat-physicalities (if gifted with imaginary minds).

Re: An All-Moving Darkness

des, perhaps the guys in the band Meat Puppets were onto something when they chose their name well over twenty years ago....

Not heard of the meat puppets - but it's a good name for a pop combo.

I can imagine an imaginer who falsely imagines he has the power to imagine given the uncertainty of the 'I''s existence by the time he gets to the end of the sentence.
