    Please give me your loving indulgence,

  • We have thought about this before. It is a big undertaking but it would be wonderful if it could be done.

    What I would say is that one cannot really use things like old advertisements. One can make cards like that of course, but they wouldn’t be Tarot. Of course much of what passes for “modern tarot” these days isn’t Tarot either. And of course…[Read more]

    `I can’t say I’ve watched any modern scary things, and that is because I always suspect that they will be bad-natured. Of course, not having watched them I am not in a position to say whether that is true or not, but that is my suspicion.

    My criterion is very simple. I am sure some people would say simple-minded. Is it good? Is it on the side of…[Read more]

    To answer your question very specifically would be a little bit of a spoiler for The Flight of the Silver Vixen, as it is a place where the two stories cross over, but it is on a fictional world, not the Motherland.

  • It’s funny about thrift stores isn’t it? One finds lovely racinated clothes nearly new! Rather as if poor West Telluri buy lovely clothes because they are lovely and then look at them wistfully, thinking “but one isn’t allowed to wear them in West Telluria, is one”…

    And finally take them to the thrift store.

  • I am so glad you are enjoying the books so much. Goldenhead is magical isn’t it?

    It is lovely to hear that you feel more at peace already!

  • Not sure I can help here. Have never gotten on with English language social media – I get the impression that they “splurge” – meaning that whoever you choose to follow you get overspill from their circle and their circle’s circle so that you are getting exposed to unfortunate things.

    Anyway I find West Telluri a bit impenetrable. I tried…[Read more]

  • As someone who has very limited personal experience of modern West Telluria, I am probably unqualified to contribute here. I am not at all sure what MWTs might mean when they say “good”. Most of what I have seen on the Internet seems to carry the message “bad is good and good is bad” (or at least weak and contemptible).

    Presumably there are…[Read more]

  • I think that is a very good perception. Yes the Western Elements tend to be conceived as more noun-like especially in that each one exists independently of the others (at least in principle, though all earthly things are mixed of course). The Eastern Elements are really only conceived in active relationship with each other so as you say, in a…[Read more]

  • Rayati and welcome to Shining World, honored Miss Amy.

    We are very happy to have you here with us. Please feel free to tell us a little more about yourself and your interests and if you have any questions please feel free to ask.

    You say you are an OG Aristasian – but I am sure you still sing! (small Takarazuka joke).

    I hope you have a…[Read more]

    PS – by “willful” I suppose what I really mean is “deliberately perverse”. Which is not really a comment on any individual writer – it is more something that seems to be built into West Tellurian culture at this stage.

  • Yes they really are rather different systems. In West Telluria the four elements plus the Quintessence (fifth essence or element) have a somewhat hierarchical relationship, and the Aethyr or Quintessence is fundamentally different from the others. The elements are not physical, though they have physical reflections – ie material water reflects…[Read more]

    O ki no doku sama.

    I am never sure if it is really free verse or just very cheap. Sorry, that was a slightly naughty joke, but I do know what you mean. There seems something a little willful about it somehow doesn’t there?

    I always find it odd that pseudo-“haiku” are popular among some modern West Telluri. Haiku just doesn’t work in English…[Read more]

  • Hmm. I would say that it is always wrong to be deviant. If society itself is deviant, of course, then conforming to it is only another form of deviancy.

    And conversely, most of what passes for “deviancy” in West Telluria is really only taking the deviancy of society to its own logical extremes – in other words this “deviancy” is in fact…[Read more]

    The highest intuition is direct knowledge of the Reality that lies behind the material world (what Plato speaks of in the image of “leaving the cave” and Buddhists refer to as satori).

    At lower levels intuition does have some distant relation to its highest manifestation. Its connection with Harmony, I think, may be that Harmony is fundamental to…[Read more]

  • My breath is quite taken away. That is startlingly wonderful!

    My most heartfelt congratulations on a magnificent style beautifully realized.

  • This used to bother me at one time. These days I feel happy with being a “raven-blonde”!

  • Yes, Miss Darling, I agree with all you say. Of course herbivores are also prey so the overall “system” is predatory, and nor are humans in a position to “reform” it. A pack of wolves or a spider are never going to become “kind”. On the other hand neither are they going to resort to the unnecessary and calculated cruelty often practised by…[Read more]
