I have always been amazed that reading Finnegans Wake, a section or a series of sections, to an audience has always gone very, very deep. People sob, others laugh at what their mind doesn't understand, and mostly, they feel very good.
Such a tiny percentage of the whole book. An hour. Less than 1/30th.
Now I have been given the language for what I've always known: that Finnegans Wake is a fractal, any part of it being the same as the whole.
That somehow listeners get the impact of the whole book by hearing any part of it!
This expands my work: I will continue to read the whole durn thing, while others can plug in listening to a chapter, more or less - or lesser!
A Chapter of Finnegans Wake is a fractal of the whole book. The whole book is a fractal of...Everything. Here Comes Everything.
Comedy is the contrast between what we think is reality...and reality. That's why Finnegans Wake is correctly called a comic novel. Because what we think is reality is a construct formed by all the WORDS that went into us, printed or otherwise. Each thing we learned through words LIMITED our reality, as we thought it was expanding it! Funny!!
The more we read, the more we learned, the less we knew.
Besides actually satirizing our use of words, Finnegans Wake pours so many words and the concepts they carry into our brain, (and our unconscious), that it blows the fuses on what we can handle. This leaves us able to then "reset" our minds, and hopefully put our own awarenesses in, from our own experiences, not from others words.
I did my part to record it. Now you get to play your part in getting it out to the world.
Because it’s a world that needs to hear Finnegans Wake. Whether you’re a lover of literature, of deprogramming, or just of life, you can help. SEE CONTACT CANDLE
