NOTES FOR A SUPREME NONFICTION
The Sufi idea is that there is a particular function of the Imagination through
which God creates himself … [it] is at once your act and God's act. God creates
an image of himself by having an Imaginative function in man think about, read about, imagine, see, God.
-- Charles Stein
Someone who had read and perceived [Charles Olson's] 'Projective Verse' and 
some other essays … would 
be in a position to read anew.
-- Robert Kelly
Not the (black art) Goetic but Theurgic magic -- seeks converse with theIntelligence, Power, the Angel.
-- Herman Melville, written in the flyleaf of a volume of Shakespeare
 
1.THE HUMAN BEINGin a way unknown to any other specieshas evolved the capability to consciously participate in the selective mutations and accelerations of hisown evolutionThis has never happened before. There is indeed something new under the Sun -- and it is usYou and MeWeTHE KEYis only those who are truly conscious are capable and equipped to participate in the metamorphosisThe rest (the misanthropic 'vulgar herd') do not.

Originally, the POET was the leader of a totem-society of religious dancers. Hisverses
–versus is a Latin word corresponding to the Greek strophe and means ‘aturning’ – 
were danced round an altar or sacred enclosure and each verse
started a new turn or movement in the dance. … All the totem
-societies inancient Europe were under the dominion of the Great Goddess, the Lady of theWild Things; dances were seasonal and fitted into an annual pattern from whichgradually emerges the single grand Theme of poetry: the life, death and 
resurrection of the Spirit of the Year, the Goddess’s son and lover.
 
-- Robert Graves(Orpheus too was torn in pieces:the fateof all Muse-worshipping poets;every prophet is eaten aliveby this same zealousFIRE'
Love of the Goddess makes the poet mad:he goes to his death and in death is made wise'
