realize the mystery

I spilled some tea on my 20-year-old copy of the Tao te Ching today. It's fine, no worse for the wear as far as I can tell.

I've been writing a lot of code for an open source project and not making much music, so turning the gear on feels like going to a coffee shop I haven't visited in a while. Things feel a little different. It's quiet, maybe a little somber. But it's nice, the open space.

Nice metaphor. I like this title. Cool pipe tube kinda sounds, and drops. Kind of subterranean.

wild random madness, but very consequent concentration on the edgyness, too.

Thank you!

I thought this was very meditative at the time but I could totally see cool wild random tube pipe sounds too. It definitely has a bit of an edge. Thanks for listening, y'all.

Title is directly from chapter 1 of the Stephen Mitchell translation of the Tao Te Ching:

"Free from desire, you realize the mystery.
Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations.

Yet mystery and manifestations
arise from the same source.
This source is called darkness.

Darkness within darkness.
The gateway to all understanding."
