Poetry is the most efficient way to render a moment
The origin of Quantumpoetic is from a few different occasions in my life.
It was a long night in the summer of 2015 at SpiritQuest during my first Ayahuasca retreat. The candle was lit in the early morning hours, and we returned to our rooms, still in the Medicine. Sergio and I were rooming together, and couldn’t sleep. I laid in bed with my eyes closed, and could sense the consciousness of the Jungle. Insects chirping. Frogs croaking. A fractal purple energy field filled my mind’s eye pulsing and I asked Sergio, “Can you feel the jungle?”
“Yes, the frogs are speaking," he replies. I asked, “What are they saying?”
“Poetry is the most efficient way to render a moment.”
A moment is a location in Spacetime.
Poetry is the Art of Words.
Years later, when I was working on a blockchain project in 2017, there was a young programmer I brought into the project, whose online handle was CutesyThePoet. We were listening to a playlist called Quantum Coding while working, and the words emerged: Quantumpoetic.
We have continued playing, with a small collective, the idea of Quantumpoetic for a few years now.
At first, we thought it would be a cool name for a podcast. Maybe it still is.
Then, we thought it would be a cool name for a decentralized autonomous think tank to create a multidimensional cryptocurrency incentive system using a federated Jedi council governance system… and quickly hit a Dunning-Kruger valley of despair around regulatory issues, governance, multi-polar traps, complexity, and the general chaotic state of the cryptocurrency space.
Still food for thought.
It seems that we are all individual quantum moments living, experiencing, and weaving a collective tapestry of life. Poetry is a modality to phase shift our world view, our paradigms, our Weltanschauung.
