Quite a nice way of looking at it...
Sagan: In order to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.

Basinski: I wanted Cascade to become this crystalline organism like a star or a liquid crystal spaceship, a jellyfish traveling through the galaxy…

Yeah, this was discussed this in one of the BOCcasts and it does seem the most plausible explanation.

The TH artwork thread got me looking at the TH packaging again and I ended up here.....I'm sure this must have been mentioned before, but perhaps the Owl of Minerva connection to the Bohemian Club seal, which contains the motto 'Weaving Spiders Come Not Here' , points toward some other song titles on TH - White Cyclosa and Jaquard Causeway?

interesting
https://www.urbandictionary.com/define. ... %20Spiders
"Weaving Spiders refers to Business types (individuals) networking and working on business dealings. They are spinning webs (telling their stories) of tales of success and future business opportunities.

The Bohemian Club, of fame and fortune in San Francisco, Est 1878, has a club motto of: “Weaving Spiders Come Not Here”. This implies that you are to leave your business dealing and networking tactics at the door, for this place is to be for enjoyment and relaxation."

so if a spider may reffer to a businessman, then white cyclosa - white businessman?

or maybe it's just a reference to a special kind of spider who weaves pretty webs. -shrugs-

“Not to be born at all
Is best, far best that can befall,
Next best, when born, with least delay
To trace the backward way.
For when youth passes with its giddy train,
Troubles on troubles follow, toils on toils,
Pain, pain forever pain;
And none escapes life's coils.
Envy, sedition, strife,
Carnage and war, make up the tale of life.”

- Sophocles, Oedipus at Colonus

"The 19th-century idealist philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel famously noted that "the owl of Minerva spreads its wings only with the falling of the dusk"—meaning that philosophy comes to understand a historical condition just as it passes away. Philosophy appears only in the "maturity of reality," because it understands in hindsight."

Really does sound like the concept for what they've been up to the past 2 years. It will all make sense in the end, but its a fool's errand to try to parse it out before all is said and done.

Could you elaborate your part?

I really like that quote. There is a very deep truth in that, a humility even.
"I do actually believe that there are powers in music that are almost supernatural. I think you actually manipulate people with music, and that is definitely what we are trying to do."

I don't see anything related to BOC in that link, but it would be hilarious if Zoso Con finally discovered Mike and Marcus' long rumored "alternate career" :lol:

first time poster, first post with one word on a cryptic-like topic. That grabs attention. Did a reverse image search on their profile picture. The image is from some concept art of a cdr release of a low-profile artist that's into astrology. Not a typical profile image choice for something that may have true BoC connections. So in other words "nothing to see here, move along". :)
