Holding The Centre

The “First Going”; Uniting the Subjective and Objective Centres

I had now re-established both the subjective and objective centres destroyed by the philosophers of the Enlightenment. Like Monkey (“Great Sage and Equal of Heaven”) I can demonstrate that I myself could, as a working hypothesis, be regarded as the subjective centre of the universe through my subjective process cosmology. I could then introduce the geoperipheral model to the world to establish the location of the new objective centre as a “working hypothesis”. Over the years I have printed and sold thousands of maps of the world with the south at the top and, on the reverse, a description of my Heaven-centred universe. As I expected, being surrounded by humourless idiots, so far there has been dead silence or mocking laughter from almost everyone.

To draw attention to the new model and to bring subjective and objectives centres together I planned a thought experiment using television. For my forty-second birthday in 1974 I would attempt to converge the humanly created systems of time, space and identity. Harnessing the universal levitational force which I assumed must have caused the Big Bang, I would, as a practical joke, attempt to levitate towards the centre of the new model by de-materialising and accelerating faster than the speed of light. I calculate that, on the basis of the scientific conjecture regarding the time needed to fall through the spherical earth surrounding the famous passage in Alice in Wonderland, it would take 42 minutes, as measured by clocks on the earth’s surface, but only 21 if I reached Heaven and decided, unlike Monkey, to stay. What a dramatic exit from the stage where, as Shakespeare pointed out, we are all actors.
