Wisdom of the Beatles
I have a fantasy of writing a book that is a compendium of Beatles wisdom. It would be a gloss on virtually every line of every song, explaining the real meaning behind it, similarly to how I used to cognize the real meaning of song lyrics when tripping on some powerful psychedelic. Now, many years later, I inhabit a reality whose psychedelic properties are embedded in its materiality. The sacred and the profane are no longer so differentiated. The ups and the downs are more field-contextualized. So what comes out in these Beatle lyrics might be different than what it was in the 60s. It would be worth doing. Imagine "Goo goo goo joob" interpreted from the integrated perspective of Vedanta, tantra, and applied metaphysics.
