"seven is the card of strange transmutation, seven is the card of female intuition, seven is the card you know not knowing, seven is the shape of things not seen, but showing."
7 is the sacred seal
female intuiton has been known as blind justice, blind peace, but today there is no peace only telepath. telepathy is "further" knowing, as in knowing the truth from a lie.
if there is no justice, there is no truth.
7 removes truth from the void, it transmutes an occult knowledge to a more opaque resonance..
"see this in my colors..."

william often refered to the darker side of his character as the 'ugly spirit' - he invisioned this part of himself as a seprate entity that would, at times, attempt to invade the very essance of his being. his efferts to ward off this 'evil' spirit was, according to burroughs, a struggle which would remain for the duration of his life.
burroughs represents as the 'hermit', an inner-awairness of this 'dark' presence, its potential for self-distruction, as well as the necessity of the 'darkness' each of us as a channel for the light to travel through. when we are honest and confront the 'dark' we will come to realize that all of our fears are products of the unknown, and that the mysterious forces of life are actualy clues to an inner potential, which reflects within each individual the awesome power of the universe.
the awairness of this inner-self and its connection to the most powerful and fundamental mechanics of the universe is also an awairness of the struggle to maintain to maintain ballance. for this reason it is often necessary to withdraw from the pack, to look within, to feel that a sense of emptiness is a necessary part of the fullness of life.

"from idea to image" Burroughs as the quintessential 'hermit' or 'prophet' of the space age... the hermit here inhabits the L.O.D. i often wish i could have contacted burroughs when he was alive, and sometimes feel great saddness that this most brillant mind is no longer in the world. his voice was the voice of reason, the voice of time, a great gentle soft wind, a painful wisdom of the aeons, only burroughs lived... to call down the sky.
'example' of an 'idea' of the image, and then further refinement of the symbolism, atmosphere, aestetics, feelings, continuity amon the other images, etc. it's all in fluxx until it's right, and you won't know it until you see it...
