Each of us has a stark choice before us.

Are we only the machine – the view of Logos?

Or are we the “I” temporarily in the machine, but the pilot of the machine – the user of the machine – the view of Eros.

We must define ourselves by seeing the larger picture. To see our self as only the machine is to see the smallest part of the larger picture and then define the machine as us. Logos identifies each one of us as and with the machine.

Logos, by itself, is almost certain to see us as a machine, at least in this current age. Logos seeks to diminish Eros because the perspectives of the two are so different and Logos is threatened by the broader and deeper view of Eros.

Eros sees the “I” – the greater self. Both Logos and Eros are found in the machine, and outside of the machine – both use the machine. But Logos sees the smaller picture of parts and misidentifies as the machine, rather than the machine being our servant and our persona. Eros knows the truth. Logos is confused and limited in its perception. But in that confusion and limited perspective, Logos is convinced of the truth of its analysis. Our ego is also confused, because it is dominated by Logos as well. Both Logos and ego mean well, but are hopelessly limited by their narrow views – for now.

The machine is useful. It does work for us. But to be lost in the machine – to misidentify as the machine, is an error of perception. Eros cannot be lost and will correct that error.

The machine is not the master, but the servant.

Eros will re-establish the truth of our existence. It will show Logos the truth. The ego will come to know this truth .

Welcome to the Machine

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine
Where have you been?
It’s alright we know where you’ve been
You’ve been in the pipeline, filling in time
Provided with toys and ‘scouting for boys’
You brought a guitar to punish your ma
And you didn’t like school, and you
Know you’re nobody’s fool
So welcome to the machine

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine
What did you dream?
It’s alright we told you what to dream
You dreamed of a big star
He played a mean guitar
He always ate in the Steak Bar
He loved to drive in his Jaguar
So welcome to the machine

Welcome to the Machine lyrics © Warner/Chappell Music, Inc

The machine is a tool. We are not a machine. We are the “I”. Without the “I”, the machine is nothing. The machine must be seen for what it is and for what it is not.

Eros will reveal that truth. We are evolving.

Eros rises.
