|on march 5 i registered the domain
the word comes from a 70's album by parliament;
funkentelechy vs the placebo syndrome. one
thing i found in my almost 30 years of listening to
p-funk is that it's theory is very consistent. it
never contradicts itself and every word has
meaning and deeper meaning. and since my goal
is to develop a p-funk philosophy site i researched
the meaning of funkentelechy by doing web and
dictionary searches for "tele; telechy; telech, etc."
all producing nothing...
|march 13 was a beautiful sunny day and
i was in the mood to be outside. i wanted
a break from art galleries. so i decide to hit
san pedro and check out the ports with the
big boats, the huge docks and that big bridge-
and maybe a museum about indusrty or
nostaglia. so i get to san pedro and im taking
pics and riding and decided to check out the
fort macgarthur museum. this place is on a hill/
cliff overlooking the ocean up winding barely
paved roads. really cool, felt like i was
|i squeeze my car thru a partially closed gate and
find the muesum is an old naval bunker. the door-
gate is open and there is an honor
system donation box but there is no one
around. i was so alone it was eeerie. time to
eat. i figured id hit the derweinerschnitzel i
saw on the way in and come back to this
beautiful place that i just discovered. i eat
by this korean bell pavillion with an ocean view
while talking to the birds. i finish eating and taking
pictures and once again i am in a surreal zone.
all is right with the world...now lets go exploring!!
|im riding along half paved roads taking in the
beauty, the sun and the air when i see a sign for
a sculpture studio. i playfully said to myself that i
was not in the mood for art today, and i meant it.
but i had to check it out anyway, sculpture is my
fave...so i drive up a steeper barely paved road
which only one car could pass thru until i reach a
barn with sculpture in all different stages scattered
around a yard overlooking the korean bell and
ocean. there was no one there but a radio was
playing. i walked around and took a few pics of
the work and wondered if i was trespassing...
|by this time im very open and properly stimulated.
im just drifting around in surreal beauty when i see
another sign for a gallery. i think how could i come
all the way to san pedro to see boats and end up in
a gallery when i really wasnt in the mood for art?
but i had to check and when i did i finally saw a
human being so i stopped. she saw me pull up and
she came out to explain to me where i was and
what all ths was cause i had no clue. she invites me
in to see the gallery and i playfully tell her "my
mindset is not on the arts today." but i have a look
around...and the stuff was good. really good-
|i was immediatley impressed with what i saw. my
current surreal and free frame of mind made the
works very very stimulating. i was in the zone
where i didnt want to take pictures, i just want to
absorb and experience. i left my camera in my
pocket and slowly walked alone thru the two
story gallery. the work was very intellectually
stimulating, i was almost overwhelmed. so as im
leaving i go to peep this one installation i missed.
it was of furry creatures suspended from the ceiling
and stuff and was very intriguing. the creatures
stimulated me in a very very very strange way.
it tingled me in such a deep weird way that i went
back to read the description of the work.
this is what i read...
All matter in the universe originates from one
source according to
On the search for entelechy
our pathway eventually leads us to the human mind
the first line regarding "matter" and "the universe" snapped me to attention
i had never heard of the word entelechy until this moment...
i was overwhelmed and over stimulated. i stood there and read and re-read
i staggered to the lobby where the museum girl was and in my very
she told me i should check out the other galleries and i told her no.
i said this was

i told her that me and andrea are so close that i hate her. then i thru

andrea then asked did i know a robin and i said no and i dont want to
