@FutureStudies_ Well, right on. Ok then—le merveilleux monsieur Mohaghegh (a.k.a. ‘Dr. J’) has asked that the FSP faculty start commenting on the new Twitterized Lab-posts, and what better place to begin such commentary than with-&-in the #Mystic Lab? (‘mysticism’ from the Greek μύστης and μῡ́ω
@FutureStudies_ designating those who keep their mouths closed: the ultimate challenge to-&-for any commentator). “Is the 72nd floor of a London skyscraper closer to heaven?” writes Andrea @cityastheatre Cetrulo, evoking BlueLetterBible.org/kjv/gen/11/1/t… (“And they said, Go to!—Let us build us a city, and
@FutureStudies_ @cityastheatre a tower whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth”). The thread got unthreaded/cut-in-twain, much like the ( )hole project of the Biblical Babel, but Andrea’s question at the conclusion of this post
@FutureStudies_ still stands: does mysticism today—modern mysticism, here defined as “seeking the invisible, the immaterial” [or if you prefer, seeking that which is closed-off from us, μῡ́ω/muet]—“signal…the collapse of…civilisation, ”the ‘civil’ or ‘civilized’ supposedly being that which is
@FutureStudies_ open to discussion/deliberation rather than closed-off and mute (muet, μῡ́ω—ʟɪʙᴇʀ ᴍᴜᴛᴜs, ᴍᴜᴛᴜs ʟɪʙᴇʀ).
“What does the renewed interest in mystical practices tell us about future civilisations?”—“[#does_it_signal/#is_it_a_sign_of] the #collapse of…civilisation?” (Andrea Cetrulo).

The protagonist as figure attuned to its ground… attuned [in this way] to both figure & ground…opens onto…‘the blue-indigo-violet imbroglio’……The problem [/th“imbroglio”] is that “blue and indigo do not produce violet”: the colour-spectrum continuum from ʙʟᴜᴇ to the ɴᴇxᴛ
supposed primary, ʀᴇᴅ—ʀᴇᴅ, ʏᴇʟʟᴏᴡ and ʙʟᴜᴇ being the ‘primary’ or ‘fundamental’ colours by dint of being noncomposite (this as opposed to the other colours, which are obtained through the combination of these three)—founders precisely in and at…the interzone of indigo…
The fact that this colour—indigo—is not composed of conjoined primary colours (i.e. is noncomposite) suggests that it is in fact, by definition, a ᴘʀɪᴍᴀʀʏ ᴄᴏʟᴏᴜʀ as such, since the primary colours (red, yellow, blue) are by definition noncomposite/‘primary’/‘fundamental’ .

“L'anima…ne fugge sottoterra (simile a fumo) τετριγυια ‘squittendo’, ‘stridendo’…τρίζουσαι,τετριγυιαι ‘squittenti’ son dette le anime…condotte da Hermes all'Ade. Si tratta di un suono, il τρίζεν, che in Omero è attribuito ai pipistrelli o…ai passerotto aggrediti dal serpent.”
N.B. “Schnaufer…notare che in realtà i pipistrelli non emettono ‘squittii’ ma ultrasuoni neppure percettibili all'orecchio umano…per cui τετριγυια, detto dell’anima di Patroclo, non può valere ‘squittente alla maniera di un pipistrello’ perché i pipistrelli non ‘squittiscono’.”
“Il τρίζειν è un verso che, anche fuori di Omero, viene solitamente attribuito ad uccelli o animali (pernice, rondine, topo ecc.), e anche a serpenti. Per l’attribuzione del τρίζειν alle anime, Eustazio dà una spiegazione probabilmente appropriata: le anime sono ‘prive del→
