THE TRILOGY – This is self-published with iUniverse. I’ve designed all the covers and as much as possible the interior pages. It has been a struggle to have my interiors followed to my satisfaction — particularly in the last book AUGURIES. The content is all there and OK, but some pages did not follow my design. And there are typos I missed. I am not only writer-designer, but editor of all three. The issues are few and I can fix someday, if I so choose, but timing dictated to print it 10/17. All this considered, this Trilogy is done and I am glad and satisfied. Mission Accomplished! They are indeed an APT — ANSWeR PROTOCOL TRIPARTIUM. The creative process has, in this humble affair, been itself very representative of a TALEOTCITBYBELTER–Taliesin-Ariel Lyred Enchantments Of Things Coming Into Themselves By Belonging Together. I’m still engaged in a learning-composing process with the rows I’ve sown and hoed in this garden — that keep growing. And, speaking for myself, — nourishing.
—- Indeed, as I’ve indicated often in this work, it is an APE — AutobiographyPoetry-Essay — which beats it chest of all three interwoven throughout. So it is, therefore, that this trilogy is offered as an APT – APE – from AFIRADAPO by an ‘APO’KSTROPHES’. And, so it is, I thus untangle my own tang with tangibility — hoping any APOCROAPTIC reader can do likewise. Alas, with the AIBOTS on the way, we need to find anew the words that say what we mean and mean what we say. That’s a palindrome: SWWM-A- MWWS. While that manifest destiny “A” has many substantive interpretations in my books — the most bottom line is that it is each person’s AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL AFFLATUS whereby we dot our own “i” throughout our own life: and are our own practitioners of what the Greeks called A-LEITHEA– truth’s hiddenness disclosed as a lifting of the veil. That’s why I stress that the symbol I’ve drawn by hand — should be hand-drawn and not machine produced. A constant reminder-rendering that our “A” will be increasingly challenged-dotted by the AIBOTS: following which, we could walk dumbly into traffic or stupidly off a cliff. — Think Fresh-Breath-AIR (something I doubt any AIMBOT will ever experience) as AUTOBIOGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE ASPIRATION. It’s a deep-breathing, room-to-breathe, exercise as we are a sound of silence before the silence of our sound: SOS-A-SOS. AI vs. AI and fake-news. AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!
[PS– There is the term PORTMANTEAU for words made up of words. Well, I do that — but not quite like Dodgson’s Jabberwockians that “Did gyre and gimble in the wabe…And the mome raths outgrabe.” My term and verbal goal is APOCROAPTIC as described for newly “nested” words such as AFIRADAPO and WONTSUNODI. It’s OK with me that my term carries a flavoring of portmanteaus now and then and can thus be quite “slithy” and “frabjous” in the SHOALS of AROCKAKCORA. But there’s more. In the literary world the German term EINGESCHACHTELT(n) means “nested” and is comprehended as words that are ever and ever juxtaposed to create new combinations and meanings. Such “nesting” is thought to evidence an enhancement of the senses leading, as T.S. Eliot supposedly said, “to a new way of feeling.” Well, I fully agree with that. Still, I prefer the term APOCROAPTIC. I feel that it manifests-nests-holds another literary term that’s operative in all these concepts, namely “mysticisme et poesie,” which resonates a sustaining–core-care– fusion of memory and present composition. Indeed, the crafted-spirit that leaps out of “because” into “becoming” and an “awakening” that lifts the veil to what “feels like home.”
[PPS– Of interest in these contextuals is the language-play in Papal Bulls from 15th to late 19th Century. They were written in an archaic-artificial Latin style of Gothic type lettering, very compacted and unpunctuated called SCRITTURA BOLLATICA. Usually, because necessary for accurate reading, they were accompanied with TRANSSUMPTUM, which were ordinary and plain to read hand-written scripts. Alas, my own “play” with this is the advancing contrast between AI (as a form of incomprehensible SB) and our need to maintain “ordinary control” by a new age “Transsumptum” requirement — with a special emphasis on “hand-written” in the ever-more challenging contextual of “dotting one’s own “i.” Perhaps more than just an entertaining thought in my Casino of OPUS TRIPARTIUM TOTUS TUUS. O the Games We Will Play in our Manifest Destiny’s Odyssean Kairos.] —— mdok —–
