#90 – Westworld (OK-making)

The Kundabuffer is the ‘OK-making’ device of the mind that I have for so long intuited. It’s what I’m driving at in the fifth paragraph of #8.

[” But the mind filters on, makes OK, shields the tender mortal eyes. Binds them once more to its will, booming but one elemental command: ‘LIVE ON.’ “]

It is a relative of the psychic censor, but this concept has a much stronger Gnostic redolence. That most strange and unsayable sense of recognition in watching Westworld… the android in us getting a bit self-conscious.

The scene of a car-crash passed at speed; the look in the face of a roadside vagrant, the faces on the city tube; beauty that calls the soul to arms; intimations of animality; clearings steeped in silence far from scents of the formicary.

A glitch of thought that leads by accident to an inaccessible door of the mind; an uncanny sense of vertigo.

‘What door?’

‘Doesn’t look like anything to me.’
