Noumenon

Updated: Jan 5

To mark the passing of the year and the new beginning, I have written and recorded a poem: 'Noumenon' . It speaks of the single, undifferentiated entity – das Ding an sich (thing-in-itself), which occupies no space and all space, is timeless, non-material, and beyond the reach of causality. Within it, phenomena dissolve.

I hope you will enjoy the words, the music, the photography, even as I enjoyed the creative process which brought it to life. (I've included a transcript below.)



The trance dissolves

revealing

the vanity of all things:

of war, religion, power, desire.

Elaborate figures carved from sand.


The rising tide obliterates

the carefully crafted monuments

reducing them once more

to tiny grains

each one unique,

yet unified

upon a primal strand.


Phenomena disintegrate

unveiling

das Ding an sich

the Noumenon

within the ebbing tide.
