Title: Spinoza

The Jew’s translucent hands

Shape the crystals in the twilight.

And the dying evening is

all fear and chill.

(In the evenings, evenings

are the same).

His hands and the hyacinth’s space

Paling at the purview of the ghetto

Are almost inexistent for the quiet man

Walking-with-book-in-hand-Spinoza-1632-1677-the-great-outsiderDreaming a dear labyrinth.

Fame does not perturb him, that


Of dreams in another kind of


Nor the girl’s fearful love.

Free of metaphor, free of myth

He shapes a rigid crystal: the


Map of the One that is All

Its stars.

Written by Jorge Luis Borge




Above is a image of Visual Connection Mapping (VCM 34)

While working with the City of Victoria’s most vulnerable population on Pandora ST at Our Pl;ace Society, British Columbia Canada – I often experienced a profound sense of religious feelings. Often Bible verses would help me to understand and gain insight into what I was feeling and they often helped me put undescribeable situations, feelings and observations into some sort of context, which often lead to a kind of transcendence experience, which was impossible to slot into language. It went so far beyond the English Language.

Brainstorming ideas

  1. Dyscalculia

Jacob’s Ladder was often brought to mind while helping others through Visual Connection Mapping, often it came into my mind unintentional.

What is Jacob’s Ladder?

It is a story of personal struggle, hence the name change from Jacob, to Israel (meaning ‘my struggle with God’), this is the essence of the Jewish people who came to be known as the people of Israel.

Jacob has an hierophany (a sacred revelation, like an epiphany, but with religious significance).
