  6. "The elasticity of words
    The phonetic dimension of words
    The multi-self of words
    Is energy for thought – If it is a reality.
    The idea that words
    Can form themselves into the impossible
    Then the way to the impossible
    Is through the words."
    — Sun Ra (via cousinmosquito)

  15. Sun Ra - Freedom From Freedom

    Freedom From Freedom
    Freedom from freedom 
    From the liberty 
    Of the land 
    Where destruction’s light 
    Is the land.

    Freedom from the decree of freedom 
    From the liberty 
    Of the land of destruction 
    Is the decree 
    That can truly save 
    Those whose freedom 
    Is a burden and a shame 
    What price freedom that despairs? 
    What glory freedom that destroys?
