PARADOX LOUNGE 2005 [beta]

PARADOX LOUNGE 2005 [beta]: It’s Your Birthday!!!

Each of us came to this world in our own way. From the warmth and security of conception, with or without or consent, we are all thrust into this reality through the impetus of our creators. Some fight it, others embrace – but through all sentient awareness runs a sense of our own mortality. To each awareness comes the begining and the end. Much is spent in the pursuit of transcending the ‘mortal coil’; karmic justice, the afterlife, the law of the conservation of energy, fractal natures, and the general search for purpose… but this is not why we’re here.

This year, we would like to salute those individuals (carbon or silicone based) who are celebrating the anniversary of their entrance into this world (Gregorian, Mayan, and Chinese calendars included). Of course, since it’s a rare individual indeed who can personally confirm this event, we’ll also gladly accept assumed dates for those individuals who have no recollection of this moment themselves.

Commonly known as the ‘Birthday’, we plan on handing out cake and cardboard hats to those wishing to celebrate. We also plan on providing a database for meeting others who claim to share your moment. And naturally we’ll be providing the streamers & balloons for the Man on his special day.

So please join us if you or someone in your camp claims to have a birthday. Special gifts will be provided for individuals who are having their birthdays during the festival. Get down… It’s your birthday…

Back to the alkali, standing strong, it’s time for round 7.

That being said, until the Man burns on Saturday, join us for Foot First Aid in the late mornings with Dr. Sno and Cocktail hour in the early evenings with your host, Mr. Nobody! Nightly performances from the Canadian Fire Conclave and Santa Cruz Fire Conclave with special guests from all over the world! Look for the EL-wire signage advertising the Nowhere Bar.

Piss Clear alternative newspaper

PISS CLEAR is Black Rock City’s favorite alternative newspaper, and has been a fixture at Burning Man since 1995. It is also Black Rock City’s longest-running publication, now in its 11th year, with a daily circulation of about 10,000. It’s cheeky name is a constant reminder for playa denizens to drink enough water so that they "piss clear."
As an independent newspaper, PISS CLEAR prides itself on being Burning Man’s snarky reality check, chock full of insightful articles, acerbic rants, witty commentaries, and funny lists. Free from any censorship from the Burning Man organization, it is PISS CLEAR’s duty to tell it like it is – and to do so in a way that both entertains and informs the citizens of Black Rock City!

Plato's Cave

Two-Sentence description: Plato’s Cave is a camp installation of human perception. Sit or lay, listen to cave mixes, and zone out on the shadows and images. Assess how real the world is around you, and then step into the light.
Plato’s Cave (The Cave) is an allegory of the conscious mind, an awakening. Inside, you witness graphic images that depict the pathetic condition of mankind, that we, society at large, are prisoners of shadows and voices, of our own misconception, and that deliverance from these shadows and illusions is painful and difficult; because we grow accustom to the images, the illusions, we see everyday.
Those who pass through The Cave will witness man’s struggle. The first test that the liberated prisoner has to face is to get accustomed to his new condition and to forsake his long-cherished illusions. The second test is to see the unity of all things. The third is to show compassion towards his fellow prisoners and not merely revel in his own happiness. The fourth is to detach himself completely from the false valuations and hierarchical distinctions made by the men in the den. His fifth and much more difficult test comes if he is then made to re-enter the cave of darkness, for he would appear ridiculous to the prisoners who still cling to their former illusions centered on the shadows. They would say that he had become blind to realities since leaving the cave, that it is better not even to think of ascending, that they would be entitled to put to death anyone who tried to free another and lead him up to the light. "The Human tragedy lies simply in our refusal to recognize that we live in a condition of perpetual imprisonment, clinging tenaciously to the sights and sounds of earthly life, mistaking slavery for freedom and shadows for realities."

We are a group of polyamorists seeking to live our dreams, and this camp is one manifestation of that. Polyamory involves openness to multiple loving relationships, with honesty among all partners.
Come in from the sun… take a load off your feet…
Trade in your "OLD" Playa dust for "NEW" Playa Dust at the Infamous ‘Human Carcass Wash’. Get involved with some of your closest Playa friends and some new friends in trading your old Playa Dust in for a clean body ready to be dusted once again. This event honors your stated boundaries of where you do want to be touched or washed.
3:00-4:30p Daily.

All you Polyamorous, poly-curious, and poly-friendly folks out there on the playa are invited to join us for a discussion about the practical issues of loving more than one in an open, responsible multi-person relationship. There are many workable forms of Polyamorous relationship – polyamory is polymorphic! There is much wisdom in the poly community which can be helpful to people trying to make *any* relationship work, monogamous or Polyamorous. There will be a facilitated discussion in which you can get your questions addressed and some of the knowledge in our community can be shared.

We are the new elite. We have Betty Davis eyes.

We are artists & dreamers, creatives, musicians, singers & dancers, writers, poets, optomists, freaks, geeks and seekers of lost souls. We are a rapidly expanding cult of cultural anthropologists and closet pornstars. We are love. We are magic. We are a hit and run operation. We are just one step ahead of the man.

We will scream your dreams with you.

Come give us a hug.

Post Beatnik Syndrome

Oh, we’ve got it bad. That syndrome. Everytime we see a set of Bongos, the poetry just spills out. This unconscious sense of disrespect for authority rises, and we have an urge to have a cup of coffee, sit on a pillow, play and listen to music, and space out. It’s so hard to get anything done, but, what the hell, we don’t care anymore, just want to enjoy the remaining daze ahead. Come join us, and watch the sun come up, waltz across the sky, and set into the western desert. Oh look, there’s the moon.

Psychic Fossil

Psychic Fossil is a metaphor for traces of shadow that hide within the human psyche. In life, the hurts, the fears, the losses we experience leave behind their calcified remains in the depths of our souls. In order to experience healing, these shadow "fossils" must be unearthed and embraced. As long as they stay hidden from conscious consideration, they can continue to wreck havoc in unseen and unrecognized ways. By prying loose the fossilized remains of an old wound, acknowledging its existance and recognizing that in addition to pain, it has created strength, that is the path to finding healing.__Fossil could be (geographically) the largest installation in Burning Man history. The individual components of Fossil are intended to be STOLEN by who ever finds them and taken home. The discovery, exposure and unearthing of the fossil is symbolic of facing that aspect of personal shadow. Taking the fossil home and displaying it prominently is symbolic of the individual’s conquest of that aspect of their own shadow. It also makes a nice memento of Burning Man 2005._
