In this secret space, which no one is likely to visit, will be stored the answer to the riddle of existence. This is that the music of Anton Karas’ zither
which accompanies a 1949 film by Carol Reed (director) and Graham Greene (writer) broadcasts to hearts of flesh the signal of Alpha and Omega.
The signal is felt. It is perceived in no other way. The signal is infinitely malleable in the many outward forms in which it is contained, but its core is
stable, unchanging and is received by the heart similarly. (Only metaphors suffice in describing this feeling of connection to the ocean of being.)
Penny the penguin’s arduous journey home from the frozen cafes of the Arctic, the legendary meeting of Duane Allman and David Bowie that
produced the unknown song, ‘Slide into Inner Space [Variation 7]’ , the sigh of Rudulf Bultmann as he closes his New Testament, the tone in the
voice of Moses heard only by God on Sinai , ‘Mona Lisa”s smile, the Buddha and his flower, Mr. Spock appearing on the Simpsons – share the
common theme of mystic knowing through the feeling of deep sadness.
