Becoming Octopus Meditation 3 2020
running time: 10 minutes 11 seconds
The octopuses hope you are beginning to access a more tactile awareness and distributed consciousness. Look to these as tools for changing how our species might find better ways of being and communicating.
This week we’re exploring octopus vision, which strains the most dedicated of humans. It involves imagining into a seeing skin, switching between polarised, ultra violet and black and white vision, or a mix of the three, and navigating your environment in concave geometries with the edges of your vision sliding off into a blur. There’s no horizon and as always, your awareness is spread equally over 360 degrees all around you. Figure ground relations are fluid and protean, become part of your camouflaging body.
