ROBERT JAMES CARRON for MAYOR OF PORTLAND, OREGON, Oregon in May 2012
I VERY SINCERELY HOPE YOU WILL LIKE WHAT YOU READ AND FIND HERE. ALL THE IDEAS TEND IN THE DIRECTION OF PROVING OUR COLLECTIVE MIRACULOUSNESS/DIVINITY. *** I ALSO HOPE YOU WILL CHOOSE TO SUPPORT ME AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS.*** NETWORK - NETWORK - NETWORK. THAT'S HOW THE FOLKS IN THE MIDDLE EAST, FOR EXAMPLE, HAVE GOTTEN WHERE THEY ARE IN CHANGING THEIR GOVERNMENTS AND THEIR WORLD. A COLLECTIVE WILL IS EXTREMELY POWERFUL. GIVEN ENOUGH PEOPLE, ENOUGH WILLPOWER NOTHING - NO BOMB, NO GOVERNMENT EDICT OR LIE, NO THREAT, NO AMOUNT OF MONEY OR LACK OF MONEY, NO GROUP OF POLITICIANS OR LAWYERS, NO GROUP OF LOBBYISTS, NO GIANT CORPORATION - NOTHING CAN STOP A COLLECTIVE WILL THAT IS COMMITTED AND FOCUSED. AGAIN,*** I HOPE YOU WILL SUPPORT ME AND TELL OTHERS ABOUT ME*** I DON'T LIKE TO BE TIRESOME ABOUT IT, BUT EVERY DIME, EVERY QUARTER, EVERY DOLLAR MAKES A REAL DIFFERENCE, ESPECIALLY IF YOU LIKE WHAT YOU FIND HERE AND TELL OTHERS WHERE/HOW TO FIND THESE IDEAS & INFORMATION. (PLEASE CONSIDER PAYPAY AT THE END OF THIS BLOG) I AM UNIQUE IN HUMAN HISTORY & FOR BETTER OR WORSE, I AM VERY WELL AWARE OF IT. THROUGHOUT HISTORY THERE HAVE BEEN CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS WHO HAD SUCH STRONG SPIRITS, PERSONAS, KARMAS, IDEAS, ART OR WHAT HAVE YOU, THAT THEY NEVER TRULY DIED. IN MY LIFE I HAVE WALKED OR BEEN PUSHED THROUGH MANY DOORS TO THE POINT WHERE I NOW ACCEPT THAT WHICH I NEVER SOUGHT, WANTED, OR THOUGHT I NEEDED. I ACCEPT THAT MY IDEAS, MY WORDS, MY PUBLICATIONS, MY ESSENTIAL SPIRIT/KARMA,/PERSONA WILL LIVE FOR A VERY LONG TIME AND THAT I CREATED/TRANSMITTED ALL OF IT WITHOUT BURNING ANY MIDNIGHT OIL WHATSOEVER TO ACCOMPLISH INCANDESCENT BRILLIANCE. I DO NOT REPORT WHAT I BELIEVE, I REPORT WHAT I DEEPLY KNOW. IN VERY MANY WAYS I AM AS STUPID & IGNORANT AS A ROCK, BUT WHEN IT COMES TO WEDDING SCIENCE AND SPIRIT TOGETHER IN A NEW WAY, I AM VERY HARD TO BEAT. N'EST PAS?
XXOOXXOO ROBERT WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28, 2012
As I edit and add to my blogspot, today is **Tuesday, March 27, 2012.** If you read the ORIGINAL ideas presented here, you will sooner or later understand that most of them are sensational in various ways. REALLY SENSATIONAL. Some of them are remarkable and powerful enough that they can change your outlook on life, your attitudes & eventually your mind/heart, if you are open to it. Most of these ideas tend to underscore the fact, not as some fanciful dream or hope -- that in using extreme science (namely quantum physics), I have shown and indeed proven that we are all Miracles of the Universe. I have blended science & spirituality in ways never before accomplished and in doing so I have become a genuine historical person like Socrates, Aristotle, Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed, Galileo, Newton, Einstein, Picasso, etc. I suppose that sounds obnoxiously egotistical to many folks, but it is merely what I honestly believe. It is my objective and honest opinion/observation. I am the guy who had all these highly original ideas, wrote them down and have published them. I guess the Universe or God, or something decided I was here, open to it, and would make a reasonably good transmitter. A very good example of blending science and spirituality is my insight into relating the STRONG NUCLEAR FORCE TO US FOLKS--See Number 2 below; it's certain to amaze you once you really start thinking about it. Believe me, this one idea about The Strong Nuclear Force can change your outlook, your mind, and your entire life, if you are open to it and allow it. These ideas, of course, are free here on my personal blog site, but you can also buy them and also others which do not appear here located in my booklet THE MIRACLE IS YOU, at THE NEW RENAISSANCE BOOKSHOP, newrenbooks.com 503/224.4929 here in Portland. Those copies bear my original signature which eventually will be worth considerably more than it is today. This short booklet is only 19 pages, but it is filled with original ideas and insights, none of which existed before in history before me. Also, if you like these ideas which prove rather conclusively in not only a spiritual sense but a scientific way **YOU** are a walking, talking, feeling, thinking MIRACLE. A true Child of the Universe. You may, in fact, decide my ideas have important meaning for you and profound, ineffable general significance. For example, if you suffer from self-esteem issues, my ideas/insights might help you in many various ways. As I've said, I am running for Mayor of Portland, Oregon and am officially on the ballot; you can read more about that below. If you think I'd make a good Mayor, one who is not a corporate stooge & cannot be bought by the rich or big corporations, why then PLEASE CONSIDER USING THE PAYPAL OPTION AT THE END OF THIS BLOG to make a contribution. If you like my ideas, please also consider contributing to me and my work. PLEASE ALSO CONSIDER NETWORKING AND TELLING friends, family, co-workers, etc., about MY IDEAS & ABOUT ME AND THIS BLOG SITE. What I am sincerely hoping for is a very, very broad network of supporters. If enough folks like & believe what they find here and each of them used that PayPal Option, it would help me a great deal. If the great Internet Information Highway came to my support and if ENOUGH people sent me even a quarter, dollar, five or ten dollars -- whatever -- it could help me immensely. I am not well-connected. Unlike Eileen Brady (another candidate described in the media as front-runner), for example, I don't have one donor alone handing out $10,000 and I certainly don't live in a house costing over $1 million. But if enough folks contributed even small amounts it could help me a lot, just as I hope these ideas may be of help to you.
RIGHT HERE AND NOW YOU will read the first twelve (12) occasions on which I BEAT EINSTEIN at his own game of Theoretical Nuclear Physics. I have two degrees from Reed College; a BA in Political Science and a Masters in Teaching (my specialization was art). I am completely & absolutely self-taught in theoretical nuclear physics. The physics ideas listed below, which are earth-shaking, profound, and very important -- all just came to me, unbidden and without extensive study. I did some reading, not a lot, and they just came to me. I am truly a self-taught theoretical nuclear physicist. For example, I learned about Einstein's relativity theory from ART AND PHYSICS, a book any layman could pick up and pretty much understand. I started reading about THE STRONG NUCLEAR FORCE in the Encyclopedia Britannica and then putting that force into perspective in a book written by a Physics Emeritus Professor from U.C. California (Sorry, right now I cannot remember the names; he merely mentioned it very briefly in passing yet made nothing of it, certainly not seeing that this incredible FORCE inhabits each of OUR ATOMS. THAT IS MY CONTRIBUTION.) Even though practical applications are far from my forte, I am constantly trying to think of ways to access the colossal amounts in the earth rotational spin. My Great, Original ideas just came to me after a little reading--which does not make them any the less important. I am certain beyond doubt I am some unusual, exotic transmitter to the greater universe at large. I really don't see how it could be otherwise. I have never in my life taken a physics course and, indeed, I did not do well in high school chemistry at Madison High School, Portland, Oregon.
As a political platform, I have many. One of my first priorities is figuring out how legally to tax the rich & big corporations to pay their fair share in running society, which currently they certainly do not do. One important way I'd like to do this is finding some way to tax banks and what is called THE FLOAT. "The Float" represents the enormous amounts of money which banks earn constantly by using customer deposits & they really don't pay appropriate tax on these huge earnings/profits. Another idea is to use supercomputers in significant ways to solve problems. Unless I am misinformed the City does not currently do this at all. Why not? It's not rocket science--supercomputers are out there to help solve problems. As Mayor I would want to make extensive use of supercomputers--I would also do my best to use human potential in creating new and better solutions. I suggest going to schools, from colleges to high schools and grade schools, creating contests where individuals or groups identify a significant problem that's in need of solution. The City would then need to develop a team, a panel, commission or some group to evaluate the ideas, proposals and finally make awards--awards which could be cash or travel (like trips to Disneyland or Hawaii, a new car or maybe an old Mustang) or other prizes people like. I am quite certain this idea would generate very significant results and engage people in very positive ways, trying to create solutions to society's many needs. Another idea I would suggest as Mayor is building a monument which would become a tourist attraction. It would be called The Energy Obelisk and would be very big, though not as big as the Space Needle in Seattle or the Washington Monument in Washington D.C. It would be designed in such a way to provide spaces for many retail, commercial, office spaces for various organizations and government spaces, etc. It would be a huge obelisk the interior of which had many uses. On various parts of the exterior facades would also be replicas of some of my and others' insights into human understanding of Energy--hence the name, THE ENERGY OBELISK. I BELIEVE IT WOULD BE A REAL, BONA FIDE TOURIST ATTRACTION. There could be some minimal, reasonable charge to get to the top, where there could be some fabulous restaurant/bar.
"EINSTEIN, BEATEN NOT ONCE BUT 12 TIMES NOW AND COUNTING"
ONE. This was the 1st time I beat Einstein. I really, really beat him. It was simple but far, far from obvious or someone before me would have done it--I applied his famous equation E = mc2 to **Human Mass** (I'm sorry I don't know how to make the 2 a superscript on this blog site). Even Einstein never, ever applied his own equation to his own mass; I was the first in human history to reach this idea. E = energy; M = mass; put your own mass into the equation & then multiply it by c2 (that's c squared). c = the speed of light, so c2 is 186,000 miles per second X 186,000 miles per second. YOU DO THE MATH. To simplify, I just use my and though not precisely the same, it's close enough to get the idea. It's really a clever, elegant, original, devastating and deeply profound idea. Einstein nor any other thinker/scientist had either the intellectual capacity, the vision, the creativity, OR THE COMMON SENSE to make this connection & application. I did so, I published my insight & thus, now, I alone own every last intellectual property right. See: The **Stanford Daily, 10/22/1999, pg. 10**; **The Harvard Crimson, January 22, 1997, pg. 8**; The Bay Area Reporter, 4-13-1995, pg. 18; Portland State University, The Vanguard, **August 11, 1999, pg. 8**, and more too. If I had died having only produced this one little GREAT, ORIGINAL IDEA, I would have earned a very, very Special Place in Human Intellectual History. With this one idea I became historically important as one of the greatest, most important thinkers, writers & artists in human history in a group that would include Socrates, Aristotle, Jesus, Galileo, Copernicus, da Vinci, Mozart, Newton, Blake, Einstein, etc.; such levels of greatness at times excite considerable envy & jealousy. However, I am fully aware of this issue and it has made me tough as NAILS. What I suggest to you is that having beaten Einstein as proven here, if I ever need to do so I will beat you, too, AND I'LL DO IT WITH THE TIP OF MY PEN. I may look sweet & innocent, BUT I'M REALLY TOUGH AS NAILS AND WON'T TAKE KINDLY TO ANYONE BUT ME PROFITING FROM MY HIGHLY ORIGINAL INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY. My best advice: DON'T TRY IT--I DON'T THINK YOU'D LIKE THE RESULT. If elected Mayor of Portland, I also plan to leave most of my intellectual property to the City and that would include not only all the written words but also reproduction rights to ALL MY PAINTINGS/PHOTOGRAPHS. Even though I've sold many originals, it's the law that the artist retains all rights to the image.
TWO: The second time I beat Einstein was just this way: gravity is a very, very strong force of universal nature. If you imagine or picturize gravity as a golden thread one inch long, then you ought to get ready to imagine or picturize the STRONG NUCLEAR FORCE. This force is what holds together ALL NUCLEI OF ALL ATOMS in the entire universe -- AND THAT, HONEY, INCLUDES YOUR VERY OWN ATOMS . . . ALL OF THEM! If, then, you compare the STRONG NUCLEAR FORCE to gravity, you will have a golden thread longer than the RADIUS OF THE KNOWN UNIVERSE. It is this astounding, amazing which inhabits & characterizes YOU --** **all your atoms.** This force is an intrinsic part of you; you are born with it and cannot get away from it. IT MAKES YOU A MIRACLE OF THE UNIVERSE and that, in part, is why I authored my booklet, THE MIRACLE IS YOU.
THREE: The 3rd time I beat Einstein was like this: Einstein stated that space & time are both relative, i.e., they are variables and they vary with conditions. But one of the 2 postulates upon which he based his Special Theory of Relativity is that the Speed of Light is a Constant throughout the Universe. The speed of light, however, is based upon time -- 186,000 miles PER SECOND and therefore Cannot be a Constant -- not if time is really relative. Sorry, Al.
FOUR: The Earth's Rotation = Perpetual Motion + Infinite Energy TM. This idea is copyrighted and trademarked. I, myself, do not know how practically to access this rotational energy, but I know other clever scientists & engineers will figure it out. BUT, if you don't have the original idea of where to look, why then you'll never look there and find it. See **The Beverly Press**, Los Angeles (it serves W. Hollywood, Hancock Park, and Wilshire communities), February 27, pg. 22 for one publication. (I'll have to check the date of publication. I don't have it right here with me right now.)
FIVE: THE SCIENTIFIC PROOF OF GOD. It's based on the way electrons & other sub-atomic particles move & spin. I use what is called the 1/2 Spin as the primary example. Atoms exist throughout the universe & within them electrons & protons. These parts move & spin constantly, ceaselessly, perpetually. QUANTUM PHYSICS shows us that all electrons, ALL, including those within our body, spin at the rate of 720 degrees per One Single Revolution. Not 360 degrees but 720 degrees per One Single Revolution. To appreciate this astounding property/characteristic more fully, get a coffee mug or cup with 1 handle. Sit down at a table with it and place the mug in front of you, with the handle toward you. Now rotate the handle until it goes around 1 complete turn and has returned to its position toward you. The handle has turned 1 complete rotation or 360 degrees. Now this time imagine the mug is an electron & the handle goes around 360 degrees. Quantum physics proves that in this case wherein the electron turns 360 degrees, moving exactly like electrons everywhere in the universe, that electron has only made 1/2 a turn -- only 1/2 a complete spin. For electrons & other subatomic parts it takes additional movement or spin, another 360 degrees for a total of 720 degrees in order to complete one full rotation. In physics this is called the 1/2 Spin & it appears in textbooks throughout the world. I contend this fundamental element of quantum physics is as deeply, profoundly mysterious, supernatural & divine as any sacred, holy knowledge or text of any world religion. Such movement is impossible for objects as we commonly know & perceive them. How could part of us, our electrons for example, spin partly in some other dimension without driving us and the universe completely out of control. No matter what convoluted explanations one might concoct in coping with such a vast, completely incredible state of affairs, it offers persuasive proof of a wonderful, amazing State of Grace merely for the universe TO BE & FOR US TO LIVE. Thus, I contend that the 1/2 Spin proves the existence of this State of Grace, a dimension of God or of the Soul, if you will. This unfathomable quality, this central paradox & profound mystery lies embedded at the center of that one crucial, timeless point where faith, science & all else, too, must finally come together, to intersect--here in the time and place (all around us, throughout the universe) wherein one complete rotation takes 720 degrees--here in eternal Soul. We do live in an Electronic Age. The whole really is greater than the sum of its parts. SUCH IS GOD'S COUNTRY. GOD IS IN THE DETAILS. ALL THINGS REALLY ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD. (Matthew 19:26; Mark 10:27; Luke 18:27). See Jungle Red: Notes on the Science of Love, Library of Congress, 5-1-1994, stamped TXu 633-333, Bay Area Reporter, 2-9-1995, page 32; The Daily Californian, UC Berkeley, 2-22-1998, pg. 14; The Harvard Crimson, 1-22-1997, pg. 8, etc. Me and my ideas are very well documented because I paid thousands of dollars to publish them myself. I own all the intellectual property rights to my completely original ideas and can prove it.
SIX: The Scientific Proof of Human Divinity. It's based on the unbelievable, overwhelming preponderance of hydrogen atoms in the universe, most of which burn in stars and float in space--the interstellar gas. You are not that -- and that FACT makes you a Miracle of the Universe. It cannot be otherwise, because the Universe is much too large and there are far, far too many hydrogen atoms burning in stars & floating in space. Use your imagination to visualize this situation; it's not so difficult. There are stars & galaxies billions of light years away. BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE YOU . . . as far as I know. In my opinion no human gets born into this world without being some part of God, no matter how small we may seem. We may be small, we may be microscopic, we may be even smaller than an atom in comparison to the immensity of the Greater Universe. Use your imagination + intellect -- the universe is unimaginably immense and YOU, yes you, by any measurement, statistic or rational opinion should not exist at all. YOU OUGHT TO BE A HYDROGEN ATOM burning in some distant star or galaxy or floating in space in what is called THE INTERSTELLAR GAS, The interstellar gas, one must understand, consists of free-floating hydrogen atoms throughout the universe, which in certain times and places over very long periods of time come together and form the stars. Because, and simply because, YOU are not a hydrogen atom burning in some star or floating in space, that little, irrefutable fact makes you a genuine Miracle of the Universe.
SEVEN: I, myself, am the 7th Proof, the 7th time I beat Einstein. If you disagree with me about this concept, just re-read this document -- or even just #1 and #2 above. Then remember I had these ideas and wrote these words without ever in my life taking a physics course. Never! At Reed College I studied political science, art, humanities, French -- but none of the "hard" sciences at all. No physics, chemistry, not even biology. At Madison High School here in Portland I did take chemistry and passed with a B but I really disliked it, particularly the labs; it was one of the 2 B's I got in high school.
EIGHT: The 8th time I surpassed Einstein was with a work of great, timeless artistry, a drawing completed on April 12, 1976. "Songs & Charms" is a drawing which I based on Rousseau's very famous painting in the Louvre, Paris called the "Snake Charmer" of 1907. This is the one and only work of art in human history to depict with heartbreaking prescience A FUTURE EVENT. It clearly and accurately depicts a big passenger plane headed directly into a building--not the Twin Towers which I don't think existed in 1976, but a rather middle-eastern type of building. April 12, 1976 is the completion . . . GET IT? My insight applying Einstein's equation E=mc2 to Human Mass uniquely validates the scientific basis for such prediction of the future. I had it shown at RobertCarron.com before it was removed, to the detriment of some, I daresay -- but I'll put it back here on this blog ASAP.
NINE: The 9th proof is the 4th dimension. YOU. Yes, YOU constitute this exalted, fabled 4th Dimension. Look within! The fact that you are right now reading these words, these ideas, makes your ability and your dimension of Human Consciousness every bit as important as length, height & width. Even more so because without your ability to perceive those other first 3 dimensions there would, in all practicality, BE NO OTHER DIMENSIONS.
TEN: The 10th time I beat Einstein was in seeing -- really seeing -- the possibility of c2 and the problem c2 creates. Einstein stated clearly & emphatically that nothing in the universe can travel faster than the speed of light & that the speed of light is CONSTANT throughout the universe. In fact, he used this idea of the constant speed of light as one of the two (2) postulates upon which he based the Special Theory of Relativity. However, this claim and assertion that the speed of light is constant for all observers regardless of how fast and in which direction they are moving ignores the entirely obvious issue: c2 is much, much greater & faster than the speed of light--it is the speed of light multiplied by the speed of light. I cannot see how you could have it both ways. If c2 exists, if it is real, if it is even possible then the speed of light IS NOT CONSTANT because it is vastly surpassed and superceded by c2. Yet is c2 is not actual and real, then what of E=mc2?? Is E=mc2 merely some trope -- some dream, some figurer of speech? This is a very big problem.
ELEVEN: In that 1905 Special Theory of Relativity, the crux of the argument & all the conclusions depend upon a thought experiment involving a hypothetical human observer moving away from a clock tower at the speed of light. However, the astute, observant, perceptive critic will note the complete extent to which the element of time here depends upon human eyes/perceptions/thoughts, plus the fact that the clock tower & the face of the clock all derive from human invention & construction. Time is a human construct of the senses, perceptions, needs, brain & consciousness, not an absolute, objective entity. Time is a human invention & construction.
TWELVE: This is a bonus proof. I created, wrote & published RAPTURE NOW tm and did so in the Portland State Vanguard, August 11, 1999, pg. 8, the last page of the issue. I REINVENTED THE RAPTURE. GOOD LUCK.

All this crap really, actually happened to me -- unlikely as it may seem.
DELIVERED BY HAND on November 5, 2011
November 5, 2011
Bob Barsocchini, esq.
1943 SE 6th Avenue
bob This is not a request letter; it is a DEMAND letter. I spoke to you at 2:45 p.m. on Friday, October 21, 2011. At that time I informed you of the following:
1. a GOODWILL employee whose name is scott & who is the manager of your facility in Sellwood neighborhood of Portland forced me to leave the store at 2:20 p.m., Friday, Oct. 21, 2011 and would not allow me to purchase a very elaborate wall-hanging Mexican votive candleholder made of hand-wrought tin. It was somewhat valuable, at least $200 and probably more. It was being sold for $5; I had it in my hand he would not allow me to complete the purchase. I had done nothing, absolutely nothing to elicit this behavior; in fact since I have lived in the neighborhood since 2006 I have spent thousands of dollars at this very store. He claimed--I have no idea why--he claimed I gave him the evil eye and he opening stated this completely grotesque and inappropriate claim before other goodwill employees & customers. He did this without my saying a word. He also shouted at me that I could never come into that store/facility again, saying, and I quite, "You can never come here again, you old queer." Personally, I believe he may be suffering a personality disorder or perhaps he is on drugs, which are very common nowadays. Meth???? Who knows.
2. When I called you back, it was only -- only -- because I forgot to get your zip code, but Goodwill -- in it infinite wisdom -- each time hung up on me and would not my phone call. Then, low and behold, I received a phone call from portland finest, one officer carrie ottoman, who informed me NOT TO CALL GOODWILL. This scenario is not only unconstitutional but fascistic. Apparently Portland police now have nothing better to do with their very, very well-paid time than waste it with these ridiculous telephone complaints. This all completely smacks of the book 1984. Do you even know the author? His first name is George.
3. My first demand is that you ORDER SCOTT, the manager, to allow me to continue shopping at that particular Goodwill outlet, which is only 3 blocks from my home.
4. NEXT, I demand $6,000 in restitution for this horribly humiliating, degrading, oppressive, and completely discriminatory situation. I am willing to settle now, or you can wait till later and pay me even more, as well as have my viewpoint publicized WORLDWIDE over the Internet as well as selected Oregon and West Coast media-- as in gay media, in particular. If you and Goodwill think you can kick out some old queer by saying I've cast an evil eye, well, honey, you had better think again. I plan to fight back. So much for goodwill.
Love is fleet delight, a sugar'd sweet,
a living breathe, an ever-scarlet leaf . . .
a breach of cannon drum, which you, undying or chilst going, greet.
A sea of passion, a crossing feat --
a bait for fools and scourges great,
eternal light and silky, splendor dark create.
(written Oct. 10, 1999)
"CALCULUS IN THE SNOW"
The frigid angles of snowshine's cusp,
on wintry eves at dusk,
shall help us mend the calculus
of theorems proved in slanted tangent lust.
Then Heaven's Gate revealed to us
shall not in chill appall;
and should infernal queries vex,
we'll cope and shovel all.
Angelic/fiends, apostles, gone --
send in the snows to us anon.
With gentle iceblink all fall down,
and calloused earth breathes softly sound,
as winter's songs portend the spring,
the breaking leaves and blossoms bound.
And ere this eve snowflakes amend
such glory blinds each time again,
while at still gate enchanting snow
the frozen dawns, grown molten cold,
anticipate the diofferential-integrated flow,
the frosted scent of Christmas rose,
OF ALL THE OLD AND NEW WE HOLD. (written 1996)
Fine icy fires
crown the days
and silky, starry biers (choirs).
Loose waves upon life's ocean maze
cast diamond diadems of scalding mire,
yet go to shimmer in our souls
in yon golden ruby casket Dire.
There in hallowed frozen pyre
vermillion knaves and fools
midst crimson kings and queens
-- and famous First Wives, too --
even lions in winter
MUST ALL FALL DOWN . . .
There ruddy princes, scarlet ladies
paint nights afire,
and genius artists flushed with renown
MUST ALL FALL DOWN
SACRED ETERNAL LYRE. (written 1998)
