“Eggman” Fulfills Surrealist “Prophecy”
In hindsight, the “automatic writing” and the desireless desire of Andre Breton and the originally-intentioned Surrealists in the 1920s and 1930s can be seen as beginning at a point and ending at a point. The ending can be seen as John Lennon’s final pieces, “I am the Eggman” and “Imagine.”
Prophecy in the religious sense, in that the Book of Revelations consists of prophecy, is in fact, automatic writing. There is a theme beneath, but it is a theme with patterns which form in the Unconscious and draw a picture over time – inner time – time in the Eastern Orthodox sense; Chronos – all time is one time in a holistic package: It sees things “ahead” in lineal time happening in a coherent package to form a picture with things in other lineal time. That is, the paintings of Magritte and Dali and some of the writings of Eloud and Bretin are related by fem spirit – like the Pandu brothers all married to the same woman. The piano that Dali paints over years as a talisman for the Unconscious condition is the same piano that John Lennon played – the white grand piano – in composing Imagine.
John Lennon is the Eggman; Eggman, in this tip point of the work is the Surrealist’s Christ; the Second Coming, the Yellow Buddha. IN the song, Eggman refers to the phrase from the Vedas: “I am he; this is that.” I am Atman, I am Brahmin (I am Eggman, I am Walrus). It is precisely what the Christ said in seeking the Father, that he had become at one with the Father – the Self – the Unconscious, the Universe (the Eight Planets; the Bagua).
Likewise, in Dali’s painting of “Geopoliticus Child” (1943) viewing the awakening of the “New Man.” Dali is the child in the picture riding the dream “as a child” and following the Anima next whom he follows to the picture. Many pictures over Dali’s lifetime lead to this: See Quigley in Exile. The “new man” emerging is identified as the Christ by the dripping blood – it is revealed in “Poetry in America” – the blood comes from the Christ wound and the candle in his head identifies him as the Enlightened One. IN Poetry . . . he dances with his Shadow; Dual Nature, Jesus and John, Sanat and Sanada at the turning of the Platonic Month to Aquarius.
IN particular, Magritte's Son of Man, Biblical phrasing for the Chosen One from Daniel, is pictured in two pictures in 1964 as an Englishman - Bowler Hat - with an apple for a face: Apple became the sign for The Beatles who awakened into the world in 1964.
