Fragment 1.


The plasmate is depicted as a white dove or bird in Christian iconography. It is, what Phillip K. Dick says, the Holy Spirit that came unto Christ and Elijah. It can take many forms, but its true form is similar to that of a white winged bird or frog. The rudimentary designs, as seen in churches across the world, depicting the Holy Spirit are in fact depicting the plasmate in its unaltered form. The cover of Richard Bach’s novel Johnathan Livingstone Seagull depicts the same creature. This book is about the search for spiritual perfection in life, away from the materialist squabbling hoards. In the story, the eponymous Johnathan Livingston Seagull – who is, in fact, a seagull – practices the art of perfect flying, whilst shunning the rest of the flock. In the same way, a man need not confine his mind to the incessant chatter of society, but can emulate Seagul’s aerial acrobatics in the limitless expanses of the imagination. Let your soul and spirit rise up into the Spiritual sky and there you can practice the acrobatic dives and tumbles that ordinary minds won’t do; and this will set you free.
