I want to make this cake for my Birthday.
I start by saying my circumstance is quiet unfortunate but has the potential of being a brilliant new theory. Last night I dreamt that I came up with a completely new theory, I woke up and was amazed that by the thought of coming up with something completely new, but then I went back to sleep and I forgot by the time I woke up in the morning…. that’s the unfortunate part. Perhaps the dream was provoked by the book I am currently reading, The Botany of Desire by Michael Pollan. It’s a good book and I have truly enjoyed reading it. Currently, I am on the Marijuana section and its brought back a lot of memories of how I used to think so freely beyond these worldly constraints. In his chapter on Marijuana, Pollan talks about Marijuana, and other drugs, in certain occasions, being able to liberate us from the physical constraints. It somewhat delves into metaphysics in that while under the influence of certain drugs or being and existence extends beyond time-space constraints that we know. For instance, while under the influence of Acid, a time and space vanish. A moon may not just be a moon but a spiritual figure that may talk or share an emotional connection with you. Trees, wind, street, concrete can build a world within themselves. Space can transform, what was real may not be now, you may not even exist. Walls can be torn apart, figuratively speaking and within that whole your mind is free to create a whole new world. Time is worthless, because what may seem a 10 hours be just be an hour.
By experiences such a dramatic change in ones conceived notion of reality, you are free to think beyond this one realm and create new ones. And this is were religion and spirituality get mixed in ( they are in essence a form of transcending these worldly constraints as well.)
So back to my theory, I think it may have to do with life’s expansion beyond this physical world. I’ll try digging into my subconscious to see if I can find my theory.
I grew and ate these this summer!
