    Shape

    Some things can't be expressed in words and can only be expressed in shape.

    When I was invited to Central by Geoff, I was naive and sought to express myself in the shape of my words. This triggered such an immune response from the members, I gave up writing in shape and now write in the normal way here. This is like cutting the limbs off a tree because we don't like the shape.

    Who would have guessed that conformity of expression had reached such a destructive height.

    It is as though conformity of expression is defended by hysteria, and group hysteria at that.

    The word 'fascism' immediately comes to mind, and was only reinforced by the Führer lover, Carl Jung.

    But every tree speaks against you in three dimensions.

    I actually enjoy the way you speak I just dislike feeling defined negatively by the shapes you use. All of typology central is cast in the same light above and you create no way for reconciliation except for others to agree with you. If you styled your same thoughts more openly so that others could participate in them and feel good the reaction might be different
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Sure, everyone here writes in the same style and has an immune reaction to different styles.

    Most come here like yourself to find others who agree with them, "Gosh", you say, as they do in, "American Pie Revisited", "we have so much in common".

    Victor, I'm not sure what you mean by "shape" because I'm pretty certain you're allowed to write in your semi-poetic lines and questions, just as others are allowed to write with no capital letters, or no sentence structure, or all ellipses and ha ha's, or an absolutely pretentious, over-educated post-graduate wall of text.

    I don't think anyone is forcing anyone to write a certain way here, unless you're talking about your emotional tone or attitude toward other people.

    Are you saying that your text is fat?

    Some people write more "flowy" than others, some people are more direct and to the point, some people love their walls of text, and so on. It seems that we encourage a variety of forms of self-expression here, as well we should.

    For the record, I like your style of posting because it's not so direct. It reaches into the corners of the mind and pulls out symbology and metaphor to make its points.

    Cool From Poem to Poem

    Shape is very important to me.

    When I stop talking and when I stop my inner dialogue, shape becomes apparent to me. It's as though I feel shape internally and move with shape.

    So rather than using my sense of hearing and speaking, I am using my proprioceptive sense.

    And when I am in touch with shape its as though I am in a different world.

    And this tends to be disconcerting for those still using their sense of hearing and speech.

    Although two people silently drawing together, can communicate together using shape only; and two people silently dancing together can communicate through movement and shape.

    And of course we can silently communicate using poems only.

    For only a poem can communicate with another poem.
