    That is supposed to be a curse, from what I understand.

    Artists and writers don't explain intent, leaving that part to an appreciator. Curses, challenges, flattery, preaching, ect, ect. All external. Decision determines definition. Myself? Don't like boring. I'm here with interest.

    Re: Volks Grow

    Are you speaking for all artists and writers?

    The times we are in are quite accurately portrayed in The I Ching, hexagram 36, in which the active character needs to hide his light, for a governance of darkness is in power. Sound familiar?

    Confucious had a copy of the I Ching, but made no contribution to it.

    36. Ming I / Darkening of the light

    above K'UN THE RECEPTIVE, EARTH
    below LI THE CLINGING, FIRE

    Here the sun has sunk under the earth and is therefore darkened. The name
    of the hexagram means literally "wounding of the bright"; hence the
    individual lines contain frequent references to wounding. The situation is
    the exact opposite of that in the foregoing hexagram. In the latter a wise man
    at the head of affairs has able helpers, and in company with them makes
    progress; here a man of dark nature is in a position of authority and brings
    harm to the wise and able man.

    THE JUDGMENT

    DARKENING OF THE LIGHT. In adversity
    It furthers one to be persevering.


    One must not unresistingly let himself be swept along by unfavorable
    circumstances, nor permit his steadfastness to be shaken. He can avoid this by
    maintaining his inner light, while remaining outwardly yielding and
    tractable. With this attitude he can overcome even the greatest adversities.
    In some situations indeed a man must hide his light, in order to make his
    will prevail inspite of difficulties in his immediate environment.
    Perseverance must dwell in inmost consciousness and should not be
    discernible from without. Only thus is a man able to maintain his will in the
    face of difficulties.

    THE IMAGE

    The light has sunk into the earth:
    The image of DARKENING OF THE LIGHT.
    Thus does the superior man live with the great mass:
    He veils his light, yet still shines.

    In a time of darkness it is essential to be cautious and reserved. One should
    not needlessly awaken overwhelming enmity by inconsiderate behavior. In
    such times one ought not to fall in with the practices of others; neither
    should one drag them censoriously into the light. In social intercourse one
    should not try to be all-knowing. One should let many things pass, without
    being duped.

    Re: Volks Grow

    I cannot speak for any but myself. My assumption is based on my appreciation of writings and art. I can't recall the priviledge of an artists' interpretation of his work. I might be lying to myself here, or applying selective memory. Too, I was indeed talking 'out of my big a' bringing asian philosophy here with little knowledge. I meant only easy humor, no umbrage. If I thought better, perhaps I wouldn't have so embarassed myself. I will reread your post several times, to learn. I'm going to need some time to gain understanding. Much more time than you needed to write, and type it. I wish hexagram 36 was familiar but I hadn't a clue. If I ever knew when Confucious lived, I'd forgotten. Your post couple months back with a quote from The I Ching was the only ref to this book I recall. Jack Kerouac may have, but I last read him in 1967, I guess. I've obviously never read The I Ching, yet.

    Re: Volks Grow

    It has got to be the coolest book ever. Hexagram 36 I call the indoor growers hexagram, this line "here a man of dark nature is in a position of authority and brings
    harm to the wise and able man." is the corrupt system that we have that can make Gods creations illegal, and the rest of it is advice on how to hide your grow op, referred to as "light" here.

    The sixth changing line tells of the origin of the situation, but I find that Wilhelm's (the terse bits are from the classic text, and Wilhelm's is the chuffy parts after that sound like a German Christian missionary from a century ago) description describes well a grow op, "Thus does the superior man live with the great mass: He veils his light, yet still shines."

    Reading it through a couple of times reveals.

    Might have to add that last bit to my sig.

    Cheers,
    Maxx

    Re: Volks Grow

    WOF: I felt the same way after Maxs last post...
    Charlie: Very observant, I decided to move my VG into my general population flower room, where there is another 1000w, a UFO, a 125w CFL, and a 45w LED panel. I be mixin' n' matchin'. As much light as the VG spills out the sides, I decided it would probably be beneficial to my other plants to utilize the "excess" light. Also I have co2 running in the GP flower room, so the VG will benefit from that. It's a win/win situation.
