Intro

This page is for scholarly research, to explain the mystic-state transformation from the branching to the non-branching model of time, control, and possibility, by cataloging mushroom branching morphology art motifs in the Canterbury Psalter.

Branching morphology is important for branching-message mushroom trees.

Eadwine’s vine-leaf trees and vine motifs which accompany these branching-message mushroom trees, expressing the {non-branching} mytheme, are largely covered in the “Inventory” page, and find “vine” in:

Canterbury Psalter Mushroom & Vine Inventory – presented by page/folio, with generally the whole scene.

The present page is specifically to present zoomed crops on each isolated mushroom tree in the context of the Egodeath theory (analogical psychedelic eternalism & control transformation), in order to give full attention to each individual mushroom tree.

That Inventory page also covers the altered-state lifted garment motif (identified by John Rush) of the Eadwine artists’ group that accompanies the branching-message mushroom trees and vine-leaf trees.

That Inventory page is scoped to show all mushroom trees, not all vine-leaf trees or all lifted-garment instances.

March 16, 2022: fine-tuning my read, my interpretation & reading of this image:

This image is to be read as depicting high-capability mystic acrobatics, not just as desperate struggling to avoid cybernetic catastrophic control-failure death.

If your brow is furrowed, like that of the failing students/candidates for initiation, you interpret these men as desperately struggling to avoid death.

If your brow is un-furrowed, like that of the passing student/candidate for initiation, you are eligible to balance and dangle skillfully at God’s sword of differentiation between egoic possibilism-premised thinking vs. transcendent, eternalism-premised thinking about the foundation of personal control.

We are being shown skillful balancing and deliberate, masterful touching of the sword of control-agency death, cancelling and disproving (“cutting off”) the branching-possibilities model of personal control. In the branching model (Possibilism), future control-thoughts don’t exist already as a single set of thoughts.

In the ordinary experiential state, king ego is presumed to have the power to steer through a tree of presumably non-settled possibilities, to create one’s future control-thoughts.

In the mystic altered state, that experiential mode ceases, and the experienced branching of possibilities is cut off, along with king ego’s presumed, previously experienced power of steering among the supposed branching possibilities.

I also want to shift from characterizing these as roughly, wildly “broken off” branches to cultivated and intentional “cut off” branches, more cleanly; they are always clean cuts, as from an axe – or God’s sword – not rough breaks. Like clean mystic acrobatic skill; reference the two smiling (skilled, adept) cybercide guys. So I globally changed “broken branches” to “cut branches”.

Brinckmann, Mushroom Trees, & Asymmetrical Branching
https://egodeaththeory.wordpress.com/2020/12/11/brinckmann-mushroom-trees-asymmetrical-branching/ – Albert Brinckmann identified the theme of vine-leaf trees in medieval art in this 1906 book. This is the book that Erwin Panofsky cited in the letter to Gordon Wasson about Plaincourault’s branching mushroom tree. Wasson replaced the citation of this Brinckmann book by ellipses (and silently omitted Panofsky’s two photostat images) every time he publicly republished that letter from Panofsky.
