Paleolithic / Palimpsest

Paleolithic / Palimpsest

These two concepts recur and entwine.
Primal origin is still there within the core of all evolved, developed, re-written, emergence.
Planetary, individually.
It is Atma distilled within cycles, regurgitative distraction of delusion.

Check for continuities. 

"A palimpsest is a manuscript that has been overwritten. 

It comes from way way back in the day when parchment or vellum was expensive 
and durable so scribes would scrape off what had been written and write over it. 

But, inevitably, trace of what was there are left behind, 
making the new text an iterative build on the previous. 

A wall of street art is an urban version - each work builds on / writes over the other. 
Toilet door graffiti is the same. In the digital world, everything is a palimpsest."

Art exists to advertise itself, surely? 


Throughout aeons, energies cavort, entwine, distangle, seek balance, tumble, swing, progress onward, distil and simplify as they come to know their true essence, rise through vibrations marked for easy reference as time passing, become gradually and increasingly aware, self-aware, capable of assimilating and responsible for consequences of themselves and their impact upon the maelstrom of all things within their karmic crossing.

The spirit of a palimpsest, being the vortex through which overlays and re-conditions, corrections and deviations blend and blur a thing through time; is a different entity than a palimpsest spirit, an individual formed incidentally throughout the journey of temporal energies frictionally influencing one another throughout time. Or perhaps it is. Perhaps the words are interchangeable. Perhaps the descriptor's given here are more accurate with exchanged definitions.
