5 Becoming a rhizome

Become a rhizome.
Become a secret!

What is Rhizome?
It is a new way of being.
Take off the illusion of being a human and you will find the possibilities of just being a life very flexible.

Rhizoming technique is a technique in order to become a rhizome.
<Rhizome> is the oppisite concept of <Tree> that has hierarchy.
All hierarchy that has top/bottom, center/edge is common illusion that human made. In the Universe, there is no center, no top. Universe and nature is the rhizome acctually. Rhizome can connect freely and separate flexiblly at any point.
To become rhizome means we become nature with taking off all human illusions.

1. Control the body at a subtle level

Rhizoming is a technique of transformation that begins at one part of the body, then infects a neighbouring part, and spreads to the whole body/mind.

In the darkness of the body, non-dualistic multiple dimensions are streaming and changing. If we watch this directly, we cannot understand what is happening, because there is too much chaos.
By slowing down, we can differentiate within the chaos. We can choose a subtle qualia, follow it, and amplify it to the maximum. By cutting the whole process into thousands of moments and stopping time, we can see more clearly what is happening within the process.

2. Various Rhizomings

There are seven ways of rhizoming:
1) Bottom rhizoming; a transformation that starts from the bottom.
2) Top rhizoming; starts from the head.
3) Centre rhizoming; starts from the centre of the body.
4) Edge rhizoming; starts from an edge, like a finger or toe.
5) Charm rhizoming; in the middle of a bottom or centre rhizoming process, another power influences the movement, and the movement changes to another stream.
6) Strange rhizoming; in the process of top or edge rhizoming, another power disturbs the process, changing the movement in a strange way.
7) Random rhizoming; starts at random points of body.

3. Eight channels Rhizoming

When subbody is streaming in the darkness of body, it has multi channels Qualia, it does not separated into any channels.
But when it comes out with noticing by the consciusness, it has to come out through a channel, because or consciousness can recognize a signal through only one channel at the same time.
Then our multi channels qualia have to change into a channel stream with shrinking.
That's why a stream comes out through fifferent channels, for example, dream , syndorome of body, subbody movement and so on.
We need to control these process between multi channels qualia streams to passing through single channel to another channel in the time process to show whole Qualia.

4. Tree/Rhizome change

Subbody stream seems to change shape and qualia from a channel to another channel. But it is a illusion only for our consciousness, because the consciousness can recognize qualia through only a channel at the same time.
Then we need to show our subbody movement with changing from a channel to another channel for informing the whole channels qualia to others.
We have to be a transrators from multi dimensional rhizome to lower dimensional tree movement.
To become a subbody means to become rhizome and transrator between rhizome world and tree world.

5. Opening another dimension

Subbody method has a specific changing technique as a 'opening another dimension'.
Like a dream change the scene from a scene to another scene without noticing by consciousness, our qualia stream are always changing and streaming in our darkness of body.

A subtle signal of onther dimension which was folded in a dimension is unfolded, and comes out gradually until to open whole of another dimension.

6 Transparent mind and body

When you get the whole techniques above, you can see the whole process transparently which is happening in the darkness of body between the body, subconsciousness and consciousness.
It happens not in stillness body, but in moving body.
When you dance your subbody butoh movement with changing from a dimension to another dimension dynamicly, you can see everything so transparently.
It is the transparent mind.

And when it is possible to show everythng to the audience with resonance riken.
Resonance riken means to watch the whole process in performing from outside, including the resonance with audience.
Everything is resonating between dancers and audience in a short moment.
Then with using resonance riken, you can controll the Jo-Ha-Kyu timing with subtle control.
When you get this resonance riken, you can becoem a transparent body which it is able to show everything transparently.
I do not know how long time we will need, because also I am middle on the way to be a transparent body.

Sinking into darkness of the body
Qualia and the String theory 
  15 April, 2018

Qulia and the String theory

I have continud to listen to the Qualia in the darkness of body for over two decades, and got a hypothesis that Qualia are made of the Resonance pattern of the String.
I wanted to share the hypothesis with you, and hear the feedback from you.
Because, it is one of the biggest mystery for me.

 Strange World Share
 13 April, 2018

<Strange World Share>

Each one remembered the strangest world Qualia in own life, and found a place to co-create the world with resonance.

Each one invited a person by lotter to that place and approach to the person with the strange world Qualia.

Everybody had to dance in the strange world of others.

Hijikata wrote to dance in the many world changes in the "Bugs walk" and "Sick Dancing Princess".

"A body continued to be eaten by the world"

Frantz Kafka wrote;

"Support the world in the struggle between you and the world."

So, we become the world. This is the way to release from the strong ego archetype and self bind toward to become Life.

1st chapter


[1 The method of clouding* the body]
* obscuring 

[Thinned down waist smoke bugs])

"Hey look at them! 
Insects are alive without breathing. 
Look! The thinned down waist smoke bugs have come walking this way. Surely there could be a bug at the middle, reincarnating into something.”
I've been brought up with the method to obscure the body, participating in such as observations I overheard. 

[Shrink and attentiveness]
All because, shrink and attentiveness of old man which knew the uselessness of body had been wandering about me.

[Strange brightness and something shady]

Also the boy as me suddenly became stupid without any intention, and kept like a strange brightness but only just barely alive. And yet, my eyes fell into something shady as if they were cursed, I had an excessive curiosity towards such nameless things as lead balls or string. I was forced to work in the eyes like a spy, guessing that the lead ball and string must be pretending to rest.

 Co-creation of "Stuffed Spring" by Reduction by X
6 April, 2018

Co-creation of "Stuffed Spring" by Reduction by X

We can co-create various strange worlds as the Stuffed Spring that Hijikata called in the Quiet House by using his transforming mewthod; "Reduction by X and regeneration".

When all of us reduce the gross movement, it bcomes the "Stuffed Spring".
If we reduce the speed, it becomes very slow motion world.
We can reduce any elements from the daily human movement, and co-create varieties of Butoh world; slow rollong stone, ancestral whisper, silent shout, and so on.

Yesterday, students reduce various elements and co-created varieties of the "Stuffed Spring".
This month, we will focu on this>
How much strange novel worlds can we co-create with?
It is fun.
