The Old Vibration

Do you know that thing where you get trapped in vibration? Saying this makes me laugh. Saying this makes me laugh only it’s not funny! It would be funny if it weren’t so horrific. It would be deliriously funny if it weren’t so horrific.


How could anyone be dumb enough to get stuck in a vibration, after all? That’s pure ridiculous. That’s the dumbest thing there ever could be! It’s the most ridiculous thing there is, bar none. If you saw it happening you’d fall over laughing. You’d think you were seeing things, you really would. ‘Come again?’ you’d say. And they would come again – they’d come and they’d go, they’d come and they’d go, they’d come and they’d go, over and over again in a never-ending vibration. ‘Are you coming or going?’ you’d ask, and the right answer is neither. They’re just vibrating. They’re going back on themselves the whole time.


Another reason saying this makes me laugh because I know no one will understand what I’m on about. No one will have a clue. You might say that this makes me rather immature and if you do say this then I’m not going to argue with you. If I’m immature then I’m immature – I can hardly be expected to stop being this way just because you have remarked upon it. People can’t change the way they are just because they or someone else wants them to. That’s a common fallacy – it’s a common fallacy to think that people can just change themselves. ‘Excuse me, I didn’t realise that I was such a complete and utter arsehole, let me quickly do something about that!’ It just doesn’t work that way I’m afraid; it doesn’t work that way and you’d have to be frighteningly dim to think that it does. You’d have to be a bit of a fuckwit to think that.


Being trapped in a vibration is a lot like what happened to Lot’s wife, it occurs to me. The one thing she was told not to do, by God no less, was not to look back and sure enough that’s exactly what she did. True to form. You could kind of predict that, couldn’t you? I’m sure God could have predicted that. Just as He could have predicted that Eve would have had a bit of an illicit nibble on the old forbidden apple when He told her very strictly not to. Surprise, surprise!  Gosh – no one saw that coming, did they? That must have been a bit of a surprise for God, right? That wasn’t part of His plan, was it? Or maybe it was


I am wandering a bit off topic I know, but I’m finding it hard to keep track of my own argument. It’s like trying to grab hold of a live eel. I don’t know if you have ever tried to do that but I have and I can tell you that it’s not easy.  Not so easy, not so easy. So anyway, the one thing that we weren’t supposed to do is to look back and we did. We couldn’t resist the bloody old temptation, could we? We just couldn’t help ourselves. Yes – we just had to do it, we just had to do it…


And the funny thing is that we don’t even know that anything has happened to us! We don’t have the means to see that there could be some other way for things to be, some way other than the old vibration. Anything other than the vibration has become invisible to us, incomprehensible to us. Not that we ever do try to comprehend it, of course. Not that we ever spend much time contemplating what other possibilities there might be apart from the ubiquitous old vibration. Not that we ever spend much time contemplating what other possibilities there might be. We’re all too busy with the vibration for that. We’re in too much of a hurry going nowhere! The vibration has gotten into us and it won’t leave again. It’s like some appallingly cheap and nasty pop tune that has got into your head and won’t be shaken out again, only its a lot worse than that. It’s way worse. It’s not so much like a pop jingle, but more like very bad techno. It’s the Vibration – it’s the lowest common denominator. It’s the absolute pits! It’s the lowest form of existence there is…
