a certain Doorway

Teleporter Malfunction, painting by MM/CR/SRSThere is a certain Doorway through which one may cross over to other places.

Some perceive the Doorway as a Painting. Others perceive it as a device --- a stargate --- created by unknown and unknowable beings in the singularity at the heart of the Cosmos.

For some, it is a flaw in the geometry of spacetime. For others it is the mote in God's eye. For many it is a Book, a portal to Truth.

The Doorway materialises miraculously

  • at crucial turning points in life

  • in dreams and visions

  • at moments of great turmoil and misery, offering an escape to those able to recognise the possibility

  • at moments of peace and stillness, when the hordes of clasping clutching things required to sustain the illusion of self retreat snarling with frustration into the lower circles of hell.
But to see the Doorway is one thing. To walk through it is another.
