ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Fool is His Own Body of Fate is based on Phase 28 of William Butler Yeats in "A Vision:
The natural man, the Fool desiring his Mask, grows malignant, not as the Hunchback, who is jealous of those that can still feel, but through terror and out of jealousy of all that can act with intelligence and effect. It is his true business to become his own opposite, to pass from a semblance of Phase 14 to the reality of Phase 28, and this he does under the influence of his own mind and body – he is his own Body of Fate – for having no active intelligence he owns nothing of the exterior world but his mind and body. He is but a straw blown by the wind, with no mind but the wind and no act but a nameless drifting and turning, and is sometimes called "The Child of God". At his worst his hands and feet and eyes, his will and his feelings, obey obscure subconscious fantasies, while at his best he would know all wisdom if he could know anything. The physical world suggests to his mind pictures and events that have no relation to his needs or even to his desires; his thoughts are an aimless reverie; his acts are aimless like his thoughts; and it is in this aimlessness that he finds his joy. His importance will become clear as the system elaborates itself, yet for the moment no more need be said but that one finds his many shapes on passing from the village fool to the Fool of Shakespeare.
Out of the pool,
Where love the slain with love the slayer lies,
Bubbles the wan mirth of the mirthless fool.

Cover art by Patricia McCarty Tamayo
Each side of the cone represents a facet of man's essence inside the existence of being. At the smaller end of the cone are time and subjectivity ,also an element of the mundane in human existence; while at the larger end are space and objectivity, also an element of the divine in human existence. (Gary Wack)
