“Now you see our very existence is a rhythm, of waking and sleeping, eating and moving, and that’s all we’re doing . . . and just consider what we do every day. What’s it all about? Does it really mean anything? Does it go anywhere? It’s just because we want to keep on doing this, kind of a hoop-dee-da. So you can get a certain vision of life where everything is seen to be a complex pattern of rhythm.
Dances: The Human Dance, the Flower Dance, the Bee Dance, the Giraffe Dance.
And that’s what this all is, it’s jazz, you see? This is a big Jazz, this world. And what’s it’s trying to do is to see how jazzed up it can get. How far out this play of rhythm can go. Because that’s what we all come down to.”
Dedicated to Alan Watts, one of my heroes.
