Today I went to the Museum of Jurassic Technology. It was closed. I walked around to the back and ended up talking to the custodian. She introduced me to the lady who runs the museum. She ends up turning the "lights" on for me, letting to freely roam around the museum. Inside is very dark, and my eyes not adjusted to the light are blinded. I begin walking around snapping photos and noticing how the artifacts are displayed and presented.
The museum begins to unravel itself. Learing me farther and farther down chains of thought, unraveling hidden mysteries that I had never thought. I certainly didn't understand all of it, and only gleaned just a portion from it. It is indeed its own labyrinth of science and mysticism. I found a staircase and climbed up it, not even quite understanding where I was, and if I was going to become trapped in a place with all the windows and doors were closed off.
2 hours later I emerged, closing the door of the museum behind me. I watched as a lady stumbled in behind me, I wonder how long she stayed inside.
In the words of Valentine Worth: 'All of nature in its awful vastness and incomprehensible complexity is in the end interrelated - worlds within worlds within worlds: the seen and the unseen - the physical and the immaterial are all connected - each exerting influence on the next - bound, as it were, by chains of analogy - magnetic chains. Every decision, every action mirrors, ripples, reflects and echoes throughout the whole of creation. The world is indeed bound with secret knots.'
