ApO pRoN

There's no ceiling.

Aliens and punk rockers.

Politico-punk porn.

Apopron -- vignettes/random video scrapbook inter displaced with audio collage of 80's punk.

Live news footage/house of commons footage montaged with punk/industrial noise.

Eco-destruction footage.

Money > survival // Wealth > Existence.

Visual political footage (HOC) displayed with pronographic audio // vice versa // etc.

Natural fauna soundtracks // video of animal familiar / totem / eagle, raven, hawk, falcon // birds of prey.

Religious soundtracks / Tibetan Buddhist chants / afro-Cuban rhythms / gospel sermon.

Lights in the sky.

Hurricane season is upon us.

The rapture of souls.


Interesting that appearance and being are almost diametrically opposed through their very essence.

Obvious empirical data include the perceptual limitation of the senses.

For example, we conceive of the color black as the absence of light/color yet the physical properties are the opposite.

The light spectrum is understood physically as containing all colors yet we perceive wight as singular and pure.

The exact opposite of the perceptual logic that leads one to survive the daily stresses of the physical plane appears
closer to the absolute truth/pragmatic logic of the eventual reality we find ourselves within. I'm reminded of Plato.


Only in a frantic rush to fulfill apocalyptic prophesy

Would the most valued commodity

Be the very poison through which we condemn ourselves

Revelation 13:18


Cutting down the worlds forests while simultaneously belching toxic carbon derivatives into the atmosphere is analogous to chain smoking cigarettes in the hospital room in which your mother lays dying of lung cancer.


Failure of empiricism to engage the spirit is illustrated within the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle (1927). The separation between object and subject is affecting measured time / position/momentum(m x v).


Many biologists have appeared genuinely alarmed about the present rate of extinction (of different and varied species) and believe it may eventually rival the rates of the five mass extinctions that have occurred during our planet's history.
We as a society are committed to the destruction of our home, the biosphere.


In summary, the horses and their riders as described in the Bible are as follows:
Horse Horse Represents Rider Power Rider Represents
White False peace Carries bow; wears crown Conquers Antichrist, False Religion/Christ
Red Blood spilt on the battlefield Carries sword Brings war War, Destruction
Black Black, barren fields Carries scales Scarcity of food Famine, Unfair Trade
Pale Paleness of skin in death, decay Death; Carries scythe Kills by war, hunger, plagues, etc. Sickness, Death

It should be noted that while the rider of the white horse is often interpreted as the Antichrist, he is not named such in Revelation. (Honkychrist / Capitalism)
The word used to describe the color of the 'pale' horse is the Greek word chloros or green. It is meant to convey the sickly green tinge of the deathly ill or recently dead. Since the literal translation 'green' does not carry these connotations in English the word is rendered 'pale' in most English translations.


The separation issue of the illusion of individuality from the One makes the human race (homo rapiens) de facto viruses which cannot be sustained for the good of the whole. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Yet we are exclusively concerned with empirical fragmentation of the planet in a sustained effort to shape our existential arena and define ourselves. As petulant children are wont to do, we self-piteously isolate ourselves from the whole and perpetuate the illusion of perceptual individuality whilst the planet which we widely regard as our maternal generator is jealously manipulated by human vanity and greed. Even patient mothers have a limit: we tenaciously and perniciously / self-loathingly lunge towards this precipice from which material wealth will not avail. It's as if we've given up as a species and resigned ourselves to accept the random and virulent mutation of complacency(sic).


From the King James Version of the Bible, Revelation chapter 6, verses 1 to 8

Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

1. And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
2. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
3. And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
5. And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
7. And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.


Aut bellum // or war // are war // our war against ignorance
