7 Hermetic principles from The Kybalion:

1. The principle of mentalism

"The All is Mind; the Universe is Mental."[4]

2. The principle of correspondence

"As above, so below; as below, so above.” [...] This principle embodies the truth that there is always a correspondence between the laws and phenomena of the various planes of being and life.[5]

3. The principle of vibration

"Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates."[6]

4. The principle of polarity

"Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled."[7]

5. The principle of rhythm

"Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates."[8]

6. The principle of cause and effect

"Every cause has its effect; every effect has its cause; everything happens according to law; chance is but a name for law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the law."[9]

7. The principle of gender

"Gender is in everything; everything has its masculine and feminine principles; gender manifests on all planes."[10]

Know Gong *much* less actually. That was a little Mahavishna Orchestra even. Or points there.
Shatner was actually quite emotional & articulate about the experience this week. Not sure Bezos was - erm - On Board with it...

@TomDash Now THAT'S how you GET UP on the morning! :)

Ed from Ozrics has pared down the band to him and his son Silas duing the lockdown, doing livestreatmed shows from ttheir compound. They are wading back into the world but plan to have a full band touring next year.

Ozrics holds a special place in my heart.

Much better then than hearing 'My White Bicycle' *one more time* (Tomorrow got a whole album yerknow...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32am the Hurston moor-elf:

I met a young man called Ozric at a festival this summer. His parents had named him after the band!

I kinda hope Bryce is late.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 11:37am Handy Haversack:

TomDash, are you sticking around the station very long after the show? I'll be there at 2 for folding and stuffing purposes.
  11:37am TerrDE:

not a bad name, call him by it if he wants to be unique, Ozzy if he wants to be cool, Ric if he wants to be normal. Unlike say, Apple, or Moon Unit
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38am the Hurston moor-elf:

Could we have this for 24 hours please?
  11:38am TerrDE:

I will second that
  11:39am egould310:

Thanks, Tom for the high concept show and it’s execution.

By the power of Gong, I can get out of bed and walk over to the coffee shop!

That "Gong In the 70s" album was something they put together to raise money for Tim Blake's medical bills (there was a bit of negativity around his leaving Gong in the 70s, but Gong is all about the love and positivity).

Ran into a David Allen solo CD - so I know his persona from that...

enjoying the show; if i listen but don't make a comment, has a tree fallen in the forest?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am the Hurston moor-elf:

@RRN63 If you want to get to know Daevid's persona further (he was endlessly fascinating), there's this interview I did with him a couple of years before he died, interspersed with music from his whole career: www.podomatic.com...

On _Gong in the 70's_: "Well it's compiled from tapes he stole from me ... !" -- Tim Blake, referring to Daevid Allen

Tom, solid show! Handy, have fun with the fold and send! Have a great day all 🤘
  11:51am egould310:

I bought Elvis Costello’s “Get Happy” and the Planet Gong “Live Anarchy” LP’s one Saturday way back in 1982. At Karma Records in Muncie, IN.

Put on Elvis and thought, “Yeah punky r&b. I dig it”. I put on Planet Gong and thought, “What the hell did I buy?!”

Still like both albums, though.
  11:54am C in Thailand:

@the Hurston moor-elf... thanks for sharing the interview!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 11:54am Handy Haversack:
