#237 La Cascade

This is not the waterfall where
Yoshitsune washed his
horse. It does not flow or fall or
follow through. Is telescopic. In that
the mind is seen in the forest
as well as distant from it.

He found a shiny object somewhere.
Diane is Betty in the dream . . . she views
her good side as dominant. Irony
abounds. Gloria Swanson says voice
doesn't add anything. Radiohead has
postponed part of its European tour
after a stage collapse in Toronto
killed the band's drum technician.

I took many photos of the fall & its pools. The
original one (the first one at night) is a
proof of concept one to show to people
before creating the real one. (Irony defined:

Alfred Korzybski gave a presentation at a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in New Orleans where he used the phrase “the map is not the territory.” Korzybski used this phrase to mean that people in general do not have access to absolute knowledge of reality, but merely possess a subset of that knowledge that is then tinted through the lenses of their own experience. He further added that it is important for people to know that their understanding of things, “the map”, is not a true representation of reality itself or everything represented by reality, or “the territory”.
