Taking its turn… November 10, 2010

“I become more convinced each mainland continent has a particular story to tell. Maebaleia’s is taking its turn, now. (pause).”

Hucka D.:

That was my daddy’s continent as well. Jeogoet and Maebaleia. Korean and Japanese.

bb:

Your daddy built the Rabbit Hole?

Hucka D.:

Yes. To counter the centering energies of Big Sink in Sunklands. Easter needed to be remembered. We made Ned of Barton into a St. St. Lemon of Troy. But…

bb (guessing):

Two different people?

Hucka D.:

You must work next on your Pietmond TV series and the episodes. An inspiration is Kingdom with its own Peter. Peter of Ballykissangel as well. Maybe. Torchwood even, possibly. You know in the first episode Ticky Bill is explored, the second involves Peter’s mother, me, and racial inequality. I was more Peter’s mother than his own mother, etc. At the end of that episode, the second, the labyrinth is uncovered. Episode 3 deals with, “The Labyrinth Problem”. Townspeople start walking it one by one. Peter thinks: why are the inner parts colored the way they are. He gets a hold of a copy of Pitchfork. He makes a connection — Pitchfork is a successor of…

bb (guessing again):

Dark Side of the Rainbow?

Hucka D.:

Peter knows that the labyrinth should be colored differently if it is actually about chakras, and that, from outer to inner, the colors should follow the rainbow spectrum. (pause) In books at the library, this is what he has found out. Half of the townspeople want to rip out the rest of the pews in the church, half want the labyrinth and cemetery covered back. But that would be continued desecration of the dead, see. Warren Zeevon gives him Pitchfork. Warren is the undertaker and preacher in one; lives in the House of Truth. Or maybe Home o’ Fibs. He’s a bit jealous of Peter coming to town… admits this to him. Warren donates wood for Peter’s Shed. No, that’s later. Warren opens Gerbils & More on the edge of town. Has fountains around back. I’m breaking down.

bb:

The labyrinth can’t be covered back up, because of the cemetery. If it weren’t for the cemetery it probably would have, and later been forgotten, or to be forgotten again.

Hucka D.:

The cemetery saves the labyrinth, yes. The old town saves the new town. Norum saves Pietmond.

bb:

Peter eventually falls into or is pushed into the Jeogeot/Blackmount Rabbit Hole. Comes out in Ulyanovsk Oblast, much like Laura Dern in INLAND EMPIRE and her own hole.

Hucka D.:

Exactly like that. (smiles)

bb:

Peter finds Lemmon there. St. Lemon I mean. He is playing the double album White On White in a nearby house. Julia… Back in the USSR. Yes, the latter.

Hucka D.:

Yes!

bb:

White On White represents the 2 original vinyl albums of the White Album by the Beetles. In the alternate reality this is called White On White.

Hucka D.:

Peter interrupts the show at the gallery/house. Go back to White on White, the actual gallery, then, and take notes. Look at the art again. Not “art for art’s sake.” Real, true mainland gallery, sans kiosk. In the episode the same goes. Lemon is a gallery owner, but more. Lemon remains a disembodied spirit, more or less, on Jeogeot. Only on Maebaleia is he humanized in any manner.

bb:

Lemmon is Lenin. Lemon is Lenin.

Hucka D.:

He is watching ESBUM. From beginning to end. It is the new Rainbow. He will be sitting there watching the TV and it will turn into ESBUM*

*****

bb:

Peter has to be hypnotized to remember the other side of the Rabbit Hole in Ulyanovsk Oblast. This story was built in because of the Rabbit Hole and the two sides and where they are.

Hucka D.:

Up to this point, Peter had only heard Lemon as a disembodied voice, mainly from early in his life [in Pudding Hill]. He told me about it. I said he was imaging it. He said no. The Ancients.

bb:

I *must* find out what happened to Peter in Maebaleia.

Hucka D.:

You are. You will. Lemon. Lemmon. Pip. Pep. Lemon World once more. *Uli* once more. See?

bb:

Yes! [Uli resonates with name Ulyanovsk].

*****

bb:

Fascinating stuff. Thank you, Hucka D. Now I think Peter maybe researches labyrinths at the local library after uncovering the one in what’s now known as TILE Cathedral. He may even have to go back to a larger library in Pudding Hole, Big Sink, perhaps where he went to college. Yet he cannot find an exact match for the one in Pietmond. He remains puzzled. He explains to various people in the town his dilemna… his dead end. Warren Zeevon approaches him… gives him Pitchfork. Or maybe a cube. The Cube of Lyra. It is wrapped up in a secret place in the church. A relationship with the recent “unwrapping” of the labyrinth in the cathedral is inferred. It is actually 32 prims but in a special way. Like Karoz’s Fuchsia Diamond of 32 prims as well.

Hucka D.:

It enlightens. Martin.

bb:

The Coast To Coast diamonds are found. West-Centre-East.

*****

bb:

It’s buried at the end of No Way?

[no answer]

bb:

I’m going to test this out here, Hucka D. Dorothy of Oz finds a cube, or the Scarecrow finds a cube — the Lyra cube. It is golden in color, maybe golden-silvery. Illuminated in the full moon at a certain angle, it shows a clip from the ’39 classic Wizard of Oz movie where Dorothy is locked up in the Witch’s castle, and sees Aunt Em in the crystal ball, calling for her. The face of Em is replaced by the face of the Witch — Dorothy realizes that the Witch has been listening in through the crystal ball.

On the *other* side of the cube is another clip from earlier in the movie. Or maybe it’s the cube showing it at the new moon. It includes the crystal ball again, except in the Wizard’s wagon. The Wizard is pretending to see Em in the ball — ah, now I remember: *males* see one “side” of the cube and females the other. So Dorothy and the Scarecrow are explaining the two parts of what they are seeing, and assuming it is the same. Only later on, when Dorothy realizes her version was in color and the Scarecrow’s in black and white, do they compare notes closer and realize it is similar but not the same. The Wizard is obviously not the Witch, which was missed before. “Hucka D.?” [no answer] So the Scarecrow does some thinking, which, as everyone knows, he’s good at, and comes up with the solution that both sides are the same side, and its a *3d* movie. How to show two sides in one? They set up a movie theater, or Ozma allows them to show it at her theater in the Emerald City. They somehow superimpose the two films. When they do they are someplace different — not in Oz any longer.

And then another part of this work will be the Scarecrow figuring out how to divide the cube to make more cubes, and to also copy the first — very smart! Prof. Wogglebug helps? The original cube is divided into 8 more cubes. Scarecrow calls the original cube a “home cube”. Scarecrow describes what he sees on each of the 8 cubes, and they figure out an order 1 through 8. Dorothy does the same.

Later they realize they were making things too complicated, and build a machine to *slice* the cube as they are watching it at the same time. This helps preserve the stereoscopic effect.

They may have to make special “3d” glasses to view both “sides” of the film. Once this happens they see the whole. What is this?, they cry in unison. And why was it brought here. “I found it at the end… sorry.

Hucka D.:

“I found it at the end of No Way, so it seems appropriate that there’s no way it could be real and visible to us. It is like from another world.” The townspeople nod in agreement.

bb:

Are we, then, back in Pietmond?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Back in Pietmond. Peter: “You have to continually *halve* the cube, and that’s what this machine is for, this one here.” He pats it. This would be the projection machine Warren digs out of his cellar, perhaps. Warren Zeevon smiles… is pleased that he has at last served a useful function for the town.

bb:

Does the moss being Karoz have to run the special projector in order for it to work?

*****

* I assume Hucka D. is referring to Esbum Michigan, perhaps like she is seated here shortly after her 2008 birth in the old Temple of TILE in Gliese.
