The writing part was done by Douglas Colston who was inspired by the old scriptures from Chinese, Old Norse and Latin civilisations. His text is somewhat an artistic blend of translation and interpretations. He calls his text as Organising and arranging – including spinning and weaving fabric or composing poetry – may be associated with groups of people or living tissue … such weaving may be formative, uniting, alternative or staggering
In the process of organising and arranging
the spirit of a sage
does, arrives, happens or occurs –
burning envoys or messengers
is petty, ignorable and infantile.
Leadership is subordinate to
the optimal potential of each emerging moment
(the aim, standard and criterion).
In ancient times,
houses of worship or religious organisations
were genuine tools, means and ways.
An implement, instrument or tool
classifies, ranks or grades
the weaving (or protection).
Tools (including records or documents)
breathing venerable and august
accords with superlative
groups of responsible people.
To arouse, lead!
Little messengers or notes are
organised and governed.
The ship ‘low’:
the group that is indecisive
Work, creativity and compositions
conveying, presenting or removing
the inviolable exist.
To be pure and sinless
(or ordained and sanctified)
is the goal that encourages
a few assemblies
under the control of leadership
with insignificant queries, findings and footprints.
Editor’s Note: This particular text from Mr. Colston appeared unique in its conception. The original texts are in Chinese, Old Norse and Latin. The text itself talks about certain esoteric ideas which are made to come in a confluence by the author. It was felt that an abstract art with symbols might add more layers to this text and hence came this collaborative piece.
