Revised Structure

Please insert sound cues or make notes where things should be changed! obviously still some things to figure out. thanks!

BEGIN

Bryans head/torso out of sound booth. While Bryan is telling his story, A/S stir vortex? which is downstage R. they find two volunteers before the show, direct them at the beginning somehow..

200 runs. B/C/S do calisthenics. toe touch, situp, boats, push ups while Aurora tells her story. x.o.

Nationalismystic Dance Begin. Diagonal Facing Downstage R. Individually forward facing. All begin, three rounds with music.

Charlie: Round 3, at dive down, fall, lie, and go to wall, have a cigarette. Come back to do nationalismystic half time.

Bryan: Round 3,at forward block hambone to Sara’s old spot and begin new pedestrian dance in your own time.

Aurora: Round 4 you begin pedestrian dance in 4/4 time. Dive down indefinately.

Sara: Round 5, after nation lunge up, go into sight-down to transition to new pedestrian dance. After 3 rounds walk offstage. Bryan then leaves, then Charlie.

Costume Change. Sara first back….spread dirt/sprinkle water….tell story..

sparse sounds of walking in woods, wings flapping, water recordings?

Bryan in mask/horizon dances toward window, Charlie’s masked dance arcs upstage, toward windows. Aurora and Sara duet near dirt?

Charlie tells his story?

Wigman track. Wigman poses, tight cluster, Bryan tells his story, we are frozen in “mama”

Begin Healing Dance. Aurora leads meditation at the mike. Bryan and Sara duet, making noise, Charlie plays his bowls in the dirt. at 9 minutes LOUD DRONE, signals hum. Move dirt. Stand in the dirt. Smoosh while humming.

END

Revised Structure

BEGIN

Bryans story in window….while Bryan is telling his story, Charlie is recording, inside the space, A/S are stirring vortexs, they are on small platforms? with clear jugs. do we have some sort of capes or covering for our uniforms here?

Chime guests in?

Sara begins to tell her story. Of going to a biodynamic farming demonstration at her Tai Chi instructors house. “Learning about microbes and live dirt vs dead dirt. Taking a preparation of this “live dirt” – just one cup or so. Stirring vortexs of water and dirt–taking turns with two urns, 4 or 5 people around each one. Talking shit, telling stories, taking about work, and life, and watching two young lovers, feeling the pull of the water down, my arm becoming a cold paddle then turning it over to the next. Mesmorized. Springs of shrubs cut and handed out with small plastic tubs that were once Cool Whip. Flicking the yard all around with this now magic water. and studying the nature we were nuturing. I rode home with a Cool Whip container of this dirt and I got home and Aurora arrived. I told her, Im sure excitedly, about the vortex and the magic water. Together we went around the yard, front and back, sprinkling and talking, about our mothers, and our fathers, setbacks and dreams, and well now that has led us here. now.”

Aurora tells her story. x.o.

We talk about the order of things to come.

Are you ready?

Ready. etc

begin some shorter? version of 5BX, some vocal warm ups, and then start Nationalismismic Dance. Form a straight tight diagonal, Sara as drill sargent.

Charlie: at 3rd dive down, you fall, you lie, you roll over and stare up before getting up to walk to wall and have a cigarette. you then come back in once you see Sara do Sight Down.

Bryan: at forward block? right after bow stance…you start doing the hambone to a new location TBA and begin new pedestrian dance in your own time.

Aurora: Somewhere in round 4 you begin pedestrian dance in 4/4 time. After some of this you and Sara will both begin double time. this is signal to Charlie and Bryan that we are ending….peel off to costume change.

Sara: In round 5, after nation lunge up, go into can you hear me to transition to new pedestrian dance. After 2-3? rounds go double time with Aurora.

LIGHTING CHANGE, recorded stories repeat?

Sara enters from the back and perches in the audience, the mask facing backward.

Aurora begins laying out the dirt in forground, with mask on back of head.

Bryan puts on his lightening and horizon belt. Begins dance.

Charlie puts on his mask, collects his chicken foot stick and goes to perch.

Sara comes down from audience and gets some of the vortex water in a plastic container, something to flick with. She begins flicking the dirt with the water. She flicks some water around the space. Not too much maybe slippery?! This is a very slow and subtle movement. Charlie leaves perch to stamp it in the dirt.

(We are making some sounds here, work sounds? songs from working men, some kind of chain gang song??–strange idea) Haikus??

Is there a dance with Sara and Aurora here? A duet? totem movements?

Does Charlie want to dance here? Totem movements?

How can we incorporate storytelling here? or some magic/myth? or are we already?

Wigman poses, tighter cluster

Begin Healing Dance

More exstatic movements and specific gestures, listening to each other with our voices not our bodies necessarily. Maybe the light here is very low with some bright spots of color…it is more about the aural sensations?

Charlie call ours end after a set amount of time… 7 min? Culmination has occurred … by ceremoniously (somehow?) handing us our bowls. do we reach for them as he comes? we then chime bowls and Charlie again signals for vocal only by placing his hands on the “speakerbowl” and we hum. or some vowel chant. prolonged.

is there some faint recording that keeps echoing?

Responses to Adams thoughts

According to Schopenhauer,[27] mystics arrive at a condition in which there is no knowing subject and known object:

… we see all religions at their highest point end in mysticism and mysteries, that is to say, in darkness and veiled obscurity. These really indicate merely a blank spot for knowledge, the point where all knowledge necessarily ceases. Hence for thought this can be expressed only by negations, but for sense-perception it is indicated by symbolical signs, in temples by dim light and silence, in Brahmanism even by the required suspension of all thought and perception for the purpose of entering into the deepest communion with one’s own self, by mentally uttering the mysterious Om. In the widest sense, mysticism is every guidance to the immediate awareness of what is not reached by either perception or conception, or generally by any knowledge. The mystic is opposed to the philosopher by the fact that he begins from within, whereas the philosopher begins from without. The mystic starts from his inner, positive, individual experience, in which he finds himself as the eternal and only being, and so on. But nothing of this is communicable except the assertions that we have to accept on his word; consequently he is unable to convince.

Schopenhauer, The World as Will and Representation, Vol. II, Ch. XLVIII

Text about the Vortex

Spiral arms

Maps of the Milky Way’s spiral structure are notoriously uncertain and exhibit striking differences.[53][54][28][55][56][57][58][59] Some 150 years after Alexander (1852)[60] first suggested that the Milky Way was a spiral, there is currently no consensus on the number or nature of the Galaxy’s spiral arms. Perfect grand design logarithmic spiral patterns ineptly describe features near the Sun,[53][58] namely since galaxies commonly exhibit arms that branch, merge, twist unexpectedly, and feature a degree of irregularity.[58][44][59] The possible scenario of the Sun within a spur / Local arm[53] emphasizes that point and indicates that such features are likely not unique, and exist elsewhere in the galaxy.[58]

Each spiral arm describes a logarithmic spiral (as do the arms of all spiral galaxies) with a pitch of approximately 12 degrees. Until recently, there were believed to be four major spiral arms which all start near the galaxy’s center.

The mixing gases contained in the contrail rotate with respect to the ambient air. These regions of rotating flow are called vortices. (Any sharp surface, such as the tip of a wing, can cause vortical flow in its wake if it is sufficiently large or the flow is sufficiently fast.) On occasion, these trailing vortices may interact with one another.

In one well-known example of this fact, the Crow Instability causes the vortices to develop symmetric sinusoidal oscillations and eventually to merge and form vortex rings behind the jet. This instability can be triggered by turbulence in the surrounding air or by local variation in air temperature or density, which may itself be the result of the stratification of the atmosphere. When the contrails are visible and strong, it is possible to see the white streaks become wavy and then leave rings floating high in the sky, like smoke rings from a giant cigar.

Take a journey to the center of a beautiful vortex. A whirlpool is created by a magnetic coupler inside a tall CD cover, driven by the Tesla CD Turbine on faucet water pressure.

In an irrotational vortex, the leaves preserve their original orientation while moving counter-clockwise.

In a rotational vortex, the leaves rotate with the counter-clockwise flow.

As the IET energy spreads around the globe, Angel Ariel continues to bring us new ways to use angelic energy of the violet ray to support us in our spiritual self-healing journey. Stevan Thayer channeled the Energy Vortex Technique in April 2001. The Energy Vortex Technique was taught for the first time at the IET Festival of Light and received rave reviews.

The Energy Vortex Technique is based on the theory of electro-magnetic fields called “the right hand rule”. If you point your right thumb up and curl your right hand fingers, they will point in a counter-clockwise direction. Your thumb points in the direction of energy flow and our fingers point in the direction of the resulting electro-magnetic energy field. When applied to Healing with the Energy of Angels, your right fingers point in the direction that energy will rotate around your body, then your right thumb points in the direction of energy flow though your angelic heartlink.

Step 1: Begin the Vortex process by establishing your angelic heartlink to Angel Ariel and all of the Healing Angels of the Energy Field. Ask in prayer that the angels work with you and through you, that they guide-direct-surround-and protect you, and ask that this vortex process be for your highest good and highest healing.

Step 2: Create an Energizing Clockwise Vortex: Imagine that a whirling column of energy is beginning to circulate in a clockwise direction around your body. You can use your hands to push the energy (just like you would push water in a swimming pool) and accelerate its clockwise rotation. This will fill your energy field with angelic energy. Start the rotation slowly, then make the rotation faster and faster until it moves in a blinding whirl of energy. Let the vortex rotate clockwise for about a minute then mentally direct the vortex to stop its clockwise rotation.

Step 3: Create a Releasing Counter-Clockwise Vortex: Create an Energizing Counter- Clockwise vortex: Imagine that a whirling column of energy is beginning to circulate in a counter-clockwise direction around your body. You can use your hands to push the energy (just like you would push water in a swimming pool) and accelerate its counter-clockwise rotation. This will clear your energy field and release any energy blockages up through your angelic heartlink. Start the rotation slowly, then make the rotation faster and faster until it moves in a blinding whirl of energy. Let the vortex rotate counter-clockwise for about a minute then mentally direct the vortex to stop its counter-clockwise rotation.

Step 4: Create an Integrating Clockwise Vortex: Imagine that a whirling column of energy is beginning to circulate in a clockwise direction around your body. You can use your hands to push the energy (just like you would push water in a swimming pool) and accelerate its clockwise rotation. This will fill your energy field with angelic energy. Start the rotation slowly, and then make the rotation faster and faster until it moves in a blinding whirl of energy. Let the vortex rotate clockwise for about a minute then mentally direct the vortex to stop its clockwise rotation.

Step 5: Final Balancing and Grounding: end the vortex process by grounding your energy. Either hold your hands over the top of your feet for about 15 seconds or touch your right knee with your left hand and left knee with your right hand for about 15 seconds.

As you practice the IET Energy Vortex process, please let us know about the healing miracles that result.
