theres something magical happening to me as i read this book Hyperion (dan simmons 1989). its as if its words have entered the very essence of my soul and pulled out my heart. not only is it some of the most incredible writing ive read ever (a one two three punch of intellectual delight with its mix of sci-fi, poetry, history, and classics) its passages or synching up perfectly with the minutes and hours of my days. i whole-heartedly believe this book ahs tapped into my very own private personal line in the matrix. plugged right into my neural processor net. scanned all the zeros and ones of my universe time card. my fate and destiny are entertwined with the reading of its pages.. now for the proof.
perfect synchonicity example 1:
the main characters end up on a ship called Benares, (after taking a series of other ships named other things). Benares is totally foreign to me… Ive never heard of it now have i ever seen the word before in my life. (its a city in indian also known as Vanasi)i write Benares down on the piece of paper ive been using as a list of words/things i need to learn/explore.
now 5 minutes earlier, maybe less, i switched my phone to play chill non vocal electronic. something ive never done before; normally I play indy electronic fringe.
a new song streams over my player. i check to see what it is. i usually never get up but i make an exception for this song because its weird/not good and i have to ban it foverever. what is this crap i wonder? the song it by a band called.. you guessed it.. Benares!!!
what in the holy hell i think. hand of god i think. synchronistic genius i think. and so it was. within the first 5 minutes of me seeing this word for the first time ever in my somewhat well read life in a book ive finally picked up after its been on my shelf gathering dust for 10 months, the word shows up on a rare corner of my randomly selected music player that i just started using on a genre of music i never play! now thats amazeballs.
perfect synchronicity example 2:
After several starts and stops of reading the book again today (to make time for business interactions, to spend time with a friend of mine who came to visit, and to spend time with my boss that stopped by) i began re-reading at a good, steady clip around 6pm. im on page 331 breezing away when the sentence reads, “in the same instant my phone rings”..
and. it. did.
my phone rang. I shit you not. right at that moment my. phone. rang. my phone! and its not a busy phone mind you. i field mabye 3 -6 phone calls per day on average. besides…the characters in hyperion shouldnt even have been using phones in the year 2765 a.d. but she was!!! thats pretty amazing. it was pretty so amazing!
so im convinced. its immaculate inception. this book was meant to be read by me at this exact time in my life. its like my scifi deja vue intellect complex experience. its enough to convince me that my destiny and fate lines are intact. which i feel great about.
im on the right path baby i was born to read this book this way!!
