Have a Nice Life

—Waiting for Black Metal Record

breckfastfood:

Have a Nice Life - Waiting For Black Metal Records to Come in the Mail

What has become of all of us, all ceilings, all skies
is that, the stars can swim a thousand dark miles
before they ever see the floor again
with their backs against the wall on these last days
but then, we knew that would happen anyway

PAYSAGE D’HIVER

The Ouroboros, Greek for ‘tail swallower’  is depicted as a snake in circular motion swallowing it’s tail - on occasion, it can be seen in a lemniscate shape (as seen above).
It originated in Egypt to symbolize the sun; in terms of Gnostic beliefs, it is a referral to the solar god Abraxas, signifying infinity and the soul of the earth.
To those of alchemy it represents the spirit of Mercury (a substance that pervades all matter) and continuous renewal, life and death and the balance of opposition. A double Ouroboros (two snakes swallowing one another) reflects volatility, and spiritually it conveys the harmony of upper and lower natures. It’s common symbolism that the snake represents being reborn, as it sheds it’s skin.
The Ouroboros is consistent throughout various cultures and settings - for example, the serpent Jormungandr of Norse legend encircled and protected the tree of life, or Yggdrasil. The Aztec snake god Queztacoatl was characterized similarly, and Chinese alchemical dragons share relative qualities both physically and in meaning.

"Pier Paolo Pasolini’s film Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, which deals with sexual perversion in fascist Italy, scared me so much that I was sick for 14 days. Completely wiped out. To this day, I haven’t drummed up the courage to watch it again. Never again did I look into such a deep abyss and rarely have I learned so much.” — Michael Haneke
