*Fig 5 (fragment): from 'A Dice Throw' Stephane Mallarme


'The Dice Man'

"Let the dice decide... This is the philosophy that changes the life of bored psychiatrist Luke Rhinehart - and in some ways changes the world as well. For once you hand over your life to the dice, anything can happen."

I hope i've done this the right way. I read this book a while back. Apparently it was a bit of a cult book back in the 60's/70's. To me when I read it, it was like the dice bacame a kind of religion, security for Rhinehart(the user). Like an addiction. - it's a really interesting, but extremely disturbing. I wouldn't suggest trying to live like it.

I prove a theorem and the house expands:
the windows jerk free to hover near the ceiling,
the ceiling floats away with a sigh.

He faced about and, standing between the awnings, held out his right hand at arm's length towards the sun. Wanted to try that often. Yes: completely. The tip of his little finger blotted out the sun's disk. Must be the focus where the rays cross. If I had black glasses. Interesting. There was a lot of talk about those sunspots when we were in Lombard street west. Terrific explosions they are. There will be a total eclipse this year: autumn some time.

Fig 29:On the Ning Nang Nong

On the Ning Nang Nong

On the Ning Nang Nong
Where the Cows go Bong!
and the monkeys all say BOO!
There's a Nong Nang Ning
Where the trees go Ping!
And the tea pots jibber jabber joo.
On the Nong Ning Nang
All the mice go Clang
And you just can't catch 'em when they do!
So its Ning Nang Nong
Cows go Bong!
Nong Nang Ning
Trees go ping
Nong Ning Nang
The mice go Clang
What a noisy place to belong
is the Ning Nang Ning Nang Nong!!

Fig 38: Floating Root 浮根

Floating Root
The war still there,
When it could be finished?
I don’t care about what is art?
I hope art has to do something useful for the humanity!
The refugee are exiled all over the world,
Looking for abrit, protections, safety, survive….
Wherever they stay, it’ll not be the same.
They have to transfer into the other culture
“Living in Rome like Romans”.
But who can forget his own homeland?
It likes a floating root searching its own land.
And for this piece of land,
The war never ending,
When is the peace?
