Little fragment: At a festival happening in a city at multiple venues (perhaps Emrg+N+See?). Crew is walking from one venue to Lafa's hotel room and being silly on the street along the way. Some people were wearing costumes. Michaela was wearing a silver gorilla costume with silver tinsel for fun. Jocelyn was wearing a white thneed cat in the hat costume that was getting color on it from Lafa's cart and all the pastel paints that were on it. Rachel was wearing a red teddy/nighty with black panties and a black ninja mask. Lester was in his usual gold get up with no shirt. Lafa in greens. Aleph in his normal white shirt, hat and jeans.
We were all goofing off and walking down the street and having fun!
Up to a certain point it corresponds to landscape-symbolism in general,
of which it forms one representational aspect, embracing the important symbols
of level and space, that is, height and situation. With the dawning of history there
arose, according to René Guénon, a true, ‘sacred geography’ and the position,
shape, doors and gates, and general disposition of a city with its temples and
acropolis were never arbitrary or fortuitous, or merely utilitarian. In fact, cities
were planned in strict accord with the dictates of a particular doctrine; hence the
city became a symbol of that doctrine and of the society which upheld it (28).
The city walls had magic powers since they were the outward signs of dogma,
which explains and justifies Romulus’s fratricide. Ornamental reliefs on capitals,
lintels, and tympana of the Middle Ages often depict the outlines of a walled city,
although in a way which is more emblematic than symbolic. These ornaments are
a kind of prefiguration of the heavenly Jerusalem. An angel armed with a sword is
sometimes to be seen at the city gate (46). Jung sees the city as a mother-symbol
and as a symbol of the feminine principle in general: that is, he interprets the City
as a woman who shelters her inhabitants as if they were her children; that is why
the two mother-gods Rhea and Cybele—as well as other allegorical figures derived from them—wear a crown after the pattern of a wall. The Old Testament
speaks of cities as women (31).

According to Jung, the hat, since it covers the head, generally takes on the
significance of what goes on inside it: thought. He recalls the German saying ‘to
put all ideas under one hat’, and mentions that in Meyrink’s novel The Golem, the
protagonist thinks the thoughts and undergoes the experiences of another man
whose hat he has put on by mistake (32). Jung also points out that, since the hat
is the ‘crown’ and summit of an individual, it may therefore be said to cover him,
an idea which carries a special symbolic significance. By its shape, the hat may be
invested with specific significance; for example, that of the Minstrel in the Tarot
pack (56). To change one’s hat is equivalent to a change of mind or of ideas. The
choice of a hat—associated with a particular social order—denotes the desire to
be admitted to that set or to partake of its inherent characteristics. There are hats,
like the Phrygian cap, that have a special phallic significance, and others that can
confer invisibility (symbolic of repression).
