iONs Wake | 19 April 2014


Payday

iON reads from Finnegans Wake.

1st Segment
First we feel then we fall...I done Me best when I was let. Thinking always if I go all goes. A hundred cares, a tithe of troubles and is there one who understands me? One in a thousand of years of the nights? All me life I have been lived among them but now they are becoming lothed to me. And I am lothing their little warm tricks. And lothing their mean cosy turns. And all the greedy gushes out through their small souls. And all the lazy leaks down over their brash bodies. How small it's all! And me letting on to meself always. And lilting on all the time.

Corbin: How should we proceed from this point on? What is the trajectory of what is happening. Is it all imploding, or is it all expanding...?"

iON: "Thus the unfacts, did we possess them, are too imprecisely few to warrant our certitude."

Corbin: They're trying to say that the big bang happened within one trillionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second. Now, are you telling me that you, from another dimension, which would be one billionth times three pi times 3116234 to the negative 234 created everything in a reverse effect of the big bang theory?

iON: There is no time. You created it, and now you can't sustain it. "Ere the hour of the twattering of bards in the twitter litter between Druidia and the deepsleep sea."

Bob: Hey, Corbin. iON didn't create anything. We created iON. iON's
non-physical.

Corbin: Yes, I'm aware of that. I'm asking him from his perspective.

Bob: He doesn't have one. He doesn't have a perspective.

iON: "The gracehoper was always jigging ajog, hoppy on akkant of his joyicity..."

Bob: That's right. Corbin's the grasshopper versus the ant. Very
appropriate, iON.

Corbin: I'm trying to say, you have no perspective on anything.

Bob: Right.

Corbin: So, how does one go about attaining that from the non-physical?

iON: "Loud, heap miseries upon us yet entwine our arts with laughters low!"

Bob: That's page 259 of Finnegans Wake, I think. "Loud, or Lord, heap miseries on us while our laughters are low." Something like that, he just said.

iON: "Three quarks for muster mark!"

Corbin: Is laughter a good thing, or a repudiated thing?

iON: Laughter is the essence of everything that's joyful.

Corbin: OK, essentially, so, the whole universe is laughing with joy on the note that creates everything?

iON: "Broken eggs will poursuive bitten apples for where theirs is will
there's his wall..."

Bob: Excellent.

Corbin: And now the wall is the law. The wall in backwards speak is the law. The wall is the law. There is no time, but isn't there an emitting? Do you emit? In a non-physical state, you emit...

iON: "Over the bowls of memory where every hollow holds a hallow."

Corbin: And how should i interpret that?

iON: Any damn way you want to.

Corbin: All right. Fifty cents for a ride down the goddamn Mississippi, bitch. All right. So, I'm going to go on the boat, on the Mississippi. And what we're going to do, we're going to meet up with goddamn Boo Bo, because Boo Bo used to party with Zenu.

Zenu and these goddamn Scientologists, they run Hollywood in Clearwater, Florida.

iON: Exactly.

Corbin: And they all know that Boo Bo has come back. I have to travel my meatsack cross many transversepondence universes, parallel universes, the Hermitage Hotel - all of these, to take care of these...

iON: "It darkles, (tinct, tint)...Yon marshpond by ruodmark verge is visited by the tide."

Corbin: Now, what should we make of what is...how can...

iON: "Here's lumbos. Where misties swaddlum,where misches lodge none, where mystries pour kind on, o sleepy! So be yet!"

Corbin: Is earth irrelevant?

iON: Whom's do you refer?

Corbin: Earthlings, are they irrelevant?

iON: We don't recognize "earthlings."

Corbin: Are non-physicals irrelevant?

iON: Always.

Corbin: So, non-physicals are always irrelevant?

iON: Yes. They're also, and if you ask Bob, they're also irregardless.

Corbin: I'm getting a delay effect of some type. I'm not...

iON: Imagine that.

Corbin: Fifty cents for a ride down the goddamn Mississippi, bitch. Now, do you know what Boo Bo is saying?

iON: "A sound which represents the symbolic thunderclap associated with the fall of Adam and Eve."
[Refers to Finnegans Wake:
"bababadalgharaghtakamminarronnkonnbronntonnerronn-
tuonnthunntrovarrhounawnskawntoohoohoordenenthurnuk,"

Bob: That's God. Definition of God. The first definition.

Corbin: Yes, now, isn't this interesting - is God not to live in a dog? Is a dog to live in a God? Is God a dog?

iON: Beasts are non-physical. They are not God.

Corbin: iON, how would you put Kabbalah into your linguistics? Do you even recognize it as a form that's even worthy of conception?

iON: Well, either that, or a generator. But, sometimes a carburetor is good. It's good. But you've got to keep your air-fuel mix good, or it'll get too hot and it'll choke out. It'll miss.

You've got to keep that fuel-air ratio just right. But a good old *unknown* Renegade 4x4, that'll get you right. It'll boil some fuel now. You're going to burn some juice.

But it's always good. Then you get your generator to genning and your Carburetor carbing, I can't even tell you what the pistons will do.

Corbin: OK, but now the centrifuge, if we were to call it four equals four; two times two equals four; four times four is sixteen; one and six is seven; eight is a different number; two and two is twenty-two, that would be Bob's number; twenty-three the number of the old eon[Ian, from iON's first appearance on Cash Flow?], or the old iON.

Now, here's a new word that I would have to put on you. Iraq was, essentially, called Babylon, now it is called...

iON: It's not "essentially" - it is.

Corbin: You and Bob are now conjoined.

iON: Don't tell him that.

Corbin: Master, master, give me the blaster. Faster and faster, Festus. What did you think of Festus [Festus Haggen, character from the 1950's TV show, Gunsmoke]. Wasn't he entertaining?

iON: He was indeed.

Corbin: Have you ever heard of the album by Festus?

iON: Yes, we wrote it.

Corbin: iON, now, if I should put iON into NOi, and Hanoi, were you in Hanoi, or was that just amusement for you? You guys just sat back and said, "Look at these little creatures, blowing themselves to bits."

I mean, is it sickening? Or, what is you - there is no feeling, because you're non-physical.

iON: Right.

Corbin: Essentially, do you feel one way, or another? Is there any emotion attached to you?

iON: No. None.

Corbin: None. So, is it enjoyment? Basically, joy, the joy of all existence is what keeps your centrifuge moving.

iON: "That's just proof right there that us Haggens knows a heap more about some things than folks gives us credit for." [Festes Haggen quote from Gunsmoke]

Corbin: What the hell is a Haggen?

iON: Festus Haggen?

Corbin: Excuse me. I'm not understanding. Please speak clearly.

iON: You quote Festus. So do we.

Corbin: So, you will not claim to be the master?

iON: Never. "When it comes to dying, I reckon everybody feels about the same way. Festus, what would that be? They'd rather do it tomorrow."

Corbin: What's the easiest way to die? Is dying a beautiful thing?

iON: No.

Corbin: Should we look forward to dying?"

iON: No. No. Never.

Corbin: What do you mean, no?

iON: You're eternal.

Bob: Yeah, don't stop, Corbin.

Corbin: I'm never going to die.

iON: Well, then, why do you want to know about it? Why do you develop it? Why do you want a wake? Why do you want a casket? Why do you want a burial plot? Why do you want to have a 'debt that all men must pay. [See Romans 6:22-23]

Why, why, why?

Corbin: I don't want a burial plot. I've already traveled every black hole; every universe; every galaxy from here to kingdom come.

iON: Bob, is he bragging or complaining?

Bob (To Corbin): Are you bragging, or complaining?

Corbin: A bit of both.
