The Eye

A while back, I decided to withdraw all my attention from social media and only invest in this place, my website, which is my property. Basically, you’re just constantly putting content on someone else’s website, thinking you’d attract more readers. And then you get squeezed and censored…well you know the picture.

The person reading this is really my reader, not someone who just happens to see something pass by and gives it a thumbs up. In the coming week, I am going to firmly refresh this website visually as well, so that it can compete with other writing sites in all respects.

The average article here is read 100 times, and I think those are mostly the same people. However, I am now going to make a switch and do the main website and also the weblog in English from now on. This is to broaden my audience a little – 100 people is not bad, but it could be better – and also to show them abroad that the pimple-faced guy from Amsterdam is not telling the whole story.

The Netherlands is a country that has been occupied by the most conservative, dark and cynical powers since the 17th century. I now call the country the psyborg powerhouse, and that is exactly what it is: an industrial estate full of data centres and a parasitic power that cynically manipulates the people into being stupid voting cattle.

However, when I was seven years old, I went into a trance through a near-death experience, and in that trance I became one with the entire universe. That is what you see above, a map of the known universe.

In its totality it looks like an eye.

Mountains, giants and mushrooms – in this fairytale-like collection, magic whirls and swirls, yet another reality breaks through as well – the whole world turned into The Shining, and the pilgrimage to Szymborska’s grave, a simple stone in Krakow, fails at the last minute; a journey without check marks across sixteen national borders to his daughter, however, succeeds. In its combination of fairy-tale nature, historical background and eerily topical reality, this collection of poems is Benders’ best since he lost count.

 

You have no time to read this, but that is because you are no longer human. If something of the original person were still alive in you, the old mycelia of childhood, then you would learn a lot from this book, indeed, with its magical knowledge, it might become your most useful possession. A book about the human imagination, and how it managed to get into the iron grip of trans-dimensional cockroaches. Furthermore, there are also magical tips to substantially improve your life and your time acceleration, and M.H.H. Benders also makes light-hearted mincemeat of the entire Dutch literature, what more could you want!

If you don’t want to crawl around mars like a cyber insect under a scrubbed boot – which is on the agenda – then you’d do well to read this book.

The first collected work of Martinus Hendrikus Hogervorst-Benders comprises no fewer than 712 pages and weighs in at least 1.4 kilos in thin print. It is the most ambitious collection written in the last thirty years, and certainly one of the highlights of Dutch literature as a whole, in line with Snoek and van de Woestijne. Anyone with a heart for literature and who wants to read an ambitious book brimming with cast-iron poems instead of yet another typical Dutch-language ‘masterpiece’ will be delighted with the purchase of this brick.

The Microdose Bible is the worlds most comprehensive and complete oversight of mind altering substances, teacher plants and mushrooms. Dutch mycologist and philosopher M.H.H.Benders takes you on a magical journey full of wonder about what teachers nature has to offer. Includes the Psychosupersum, a guide that describes all known mental disorders and offers wisdom for their treatment. 

This book will be published end of 2022.
