Novalis' view of those seeking Redemption


If you think I've given up on you you're crazy
And if you think I don't love you well then you're just wrong
In time you might take to feeling better
Time is the beauty of the road being long

I know that now you feel no consolation
But maybe if I told you and informed you out loud
I say this without fear of hesitation
I can honestly tell you that you make me proud


- Blues Traveler, Just Wait

Janus

Well, I don't know but I've been told
If you never slow down, you never grow old
I'm tired of screwing up, I'm tired of goin' down
I'm tired of myself, I'm tired of this town
– Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Mary Jane's Last Dance
(for Outcasts and those in danger of Falling)


Jean

“Even if we’re a little way away from some of the really good answers, it’s like, no matter what we do, we’re going to be making cool discoveries with it.”
– Randall Munroe, in conversation with Chris Hadfield, The Guardian, November 28, 2015

“I’m always a little wary of assuming that technology is going to make things better, though.”
– Randall Munroe, in conversation with Chris Hadfield, The Guardian, November 28, 2015

I'm heavenly blessed
And worldly wise
I'm a peeping-tom techie
With x-ray eyes
– Timbuk 3, The Future's So Bright (I Gotta Wear Shades)
(for a certain style of Sparky)

“He had that rare weird electricity about him – that extremely wild and heavy presence that you only see in a person who has abandoned all hope of ever behaving normally.”
– Hunter S. Thompson, "Fear and Loathing '72"
(for the Dissonant Sparkies)


Novalis

“If we approach nature and the environment without this openness to awe and wonder, if we no longer speak the language of fraternity and beauty in our relationship with the world, our attitude will be that of masters, consumers, ruthless exploiters, unable to set limits on their immediate needs. By contrast, if we feel intimately united with all that exists, then sobriety and care will well up spontaneously.”
– Pope Franciscus, Laudato si’


Oannes

“Sail Forth- Steer for the deep waters only. Reckless O soul, exploring. I with thee and thou with me. For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared go. And we will risk the ship, ourselves, and all.”
— Walt Whitman


the Archangel of Song

I'm young, I'm wild and I'm free
Got the Magic Power of the Music in me.
– Triumph, Magic Power



Baal

Another mission, the powers have called me away
Another time to carry the colors again
My motivation, an oath I've sworn to defend
To win the honor of coming back home again
No explanation will matter after we begin
Unlock the dark destroyer that's buried within
My true vocation and now my unfortunate friend
You will discover a war you're unable to win
— Disturbed, Indestructible


“When your back's against the wall it's time to turn round and fight”
— John Major
(Silly Baal, of course)


Beleth

Now I lie in bed and think of her
Sometimes I even weep
Then I dream of her
Behind the wall of sleep
— Smithereens, Behind the Wall of Sleep
(because sometimes Beleth is subtle)


Furfur

I've come to crush your bones
I've come to make you feel old
I've come to mess with your head
'Cause it'll make you feel good
— Curve, Fait Accompli
