Subject: [personal] The seduction of Muralism
Security: Public
Tags:art, personal, religion, weird
I awoke this morning from a dream about a Hollywood cult that was planning to bring about the end of the world. They were Muralists, and worshipped Diego Rivera. Their plan was to ignite a nuclear war, thus immanentizing the eschaton. In the mean time, they were dropping broken clear glass into hotel swimming pools and similar such mischief. I'd infiltrated the cult in an attempt to stop them, but then found myself seduced by Muralism. As I exited the dream, we were all gathered to watch the suns rise over the cities of the world.

Anxiety, much?

This sounds like my normal dreams. Should I worry?

Simply report yourself to the nearest re-education camp and all will be well.

Perhaps this was Reformed Muralism?

Hey! That's my secret world. Who let you in? And how did you miss the part about our fearless leader Frida Kalho? Except in my world everyone saw the light and there was no need for the war at all....

I must confess to being entranced by the idea of the cult of Muralists, if only as a testimony to art having a real effect in the world. I don't think Diego Rivera would be pro-eschaton immanentizing, though.
