I think we should change the theme to Water World 2.0
There, now we can talk about floaties and boats.

Yes, but it was a desperate attempt to steer the conversation away from a deep religious discussion.
Let's talk about the art and the theme of the art. 8)

Simon of the Playa wrote:i have never been a big fan of religion. i like to think of myself as educated, and above the silly nonsense of spirituality.

like spock, but without the haircut and ears.

and now this...

how can i reconcile my annual pilgrimage for 20 years with my distaste for the church, the temple, the shrine and the altar.

how do i let go of my hatred of all the terrible things we as a species have done to each other under the guise of spiritual salvation?

how do i justify the utter ridiculousness of all the stories and myths i know to be metaphor and lies?

i trust the dust.

let me explain...



in every religion there is a force, an entity or entities that overlook or oversee or create our world and we are the product of that.

at burning man, we arrive to nothing but dust. it is our everything. it is our nothing.

and every time we breathe in that dust, we are breathing in the molecules of our ancestors.

we are the dust, we came from it, and we will return to it.....this you can be sure of.


not much else is certain.

all religions have their rituals and practices, and to outsiders, they may seem strange, even dangerous, since we tend to fear what we don't know.


we all worship different things in different ways, and you know what?

It's Fucking Awesome.

Burning Man is the Anti-Religion......We Mock and Snark as we Tolerate and Love.

make up silly rituals....WE LOVE IT...make fun of silly rituals...WE LOVE IT

it's ok to wear your magic underwear to center cafe, or your aluminum foil kippah to the Temple of your Choice.

its really the only place in the world where i feel comfortable in my own skin, and i get that feeling the first moment i smell the dust.

i suppose for some catholics, the smell of incense may flood them with memories of high mass at christmas, or for jews, the smell of chinese food on dec 25th, and buddhists get off on sage, so whatever floats your Viking Death Boat......

for me, i get "all the feels" from literally nothing.

walking out onto the tabula rasa, the emptiness, fills me with joy.

there i said it.

i'm get all moist when i hit dirt.

so, sue me.





now again, i ask myself, am i a religious man?

it appears i am, but i have chosen to not choose.

in the dust, we are all dusty........it's actually pretty simple.



the freak in me respects the freak in you. be nice. burn shit and blow stuff up, make art.


spread the word.

or tell people it sucks.

thats the great thing about this new Religion called Burning Man.

we get to make it up as we go along and admit it.

Fucking. Brilliant!

You could have taken all those words right out of my soul...

One of the oldest Radical Rituals, the father of civlization is agriculture...

In my garden, I am most Zen...

Kind of funny how plants aren't allowed on the Playa... dead or alive... so what I can't eat asparagus out there? Lolz

Yeah, I'm anti-religion aswell...

And I think Burning Man should become a religion!

Mostly for tax evasion purposes. 8)

You're bad at ingratiating yourself to people. If you're truly not a troll, just take a deep breath and stop trying so hard.

Simon sure is spewing lots of diahrera . Good thing I have him blocked and cant read it. So how's beyond belief theme different then radical ritual theme? Larry Harvey you do nothing for your half million dollar paycheck. Come up with original themes!
Anyone taking offence at anything in my posts - tough. It's only an internet forum. Stop being overly sensitive. you are shallow and banal. Eplayans who spend hours a day posting need to make in person friends and mentally masturbate less.

A radical ritual I discovered 307 days ago that I can not wait to bring to Burning Man 2017 is SELF LOVE!!!

On Saturday October 1st, 2016, I defeated my self-hatred and said "I Love You James!" for the very first time in my life (and I am James ;)

Ever since that day I have been on a transformative journey of Self-Love! And the transformation is amazing!

I will lead "Quest To Self Love" workshops as Radical Rituals at Burning Man!!!

www.facebook.com/QuestToSelfLove

I hope we meet on the Playa!!!

So Much LOVE!!!

PS: I talk about Neuroplasticity and the power of Positivity and Love and it's amazing healing effects upon your mind and the world itself! And how to use this power!
Everything that is
Just as it is
Blossoms with your love

THERE IS
SO MUCH LOVE!!! <3 <3 <3

http://www.facebook.com/QuestToSelfLove

PS: My Playa name is Rabbit!
