O.T.T.T DOCUMENT ONE
THE ONE TRUE TOPI TRIBE MISSION STATE-MEANT.
A call to action.
Extended to Those GENuinely interested in developing a new TOPI coum-UNITY to becoum involved in discussions at Thee entry point.
WHO WANTS REAL CHANGE?
To build...an ongoing nettwork of centres and creation -based communities.
When WE say creation/Creation WE mean "creativity."We just feel Creativity is too simplistic and flimsy in its day to day use..."Creation" re-minds us that the act of CREATION is the most vital, essential source of all else. The book of Genesis begins with acts of CREATION. At the centre of ALL "existence" before T.I.M.E and SPACE is that first action, without which nothing can be perceived. CREATION....
OTTT find this a vitally important distinction and linguistic foundation. So by stressing the magicakalcore we re-MIND our SELF that this is Dvine work, Divine activity, devotion to Creation is prayer and perception coumbined to manifest the billions of Individual Universes that already co-mingle on earth.
Each humanE Being lives entirely within THEIR lifelong personal Universe. Others come and go within it, but only the Individual is present 24 x 7 in THEIR Universe. and present at every mo-meant that their senses and consciousness(s) EXPERIENCE.
THEE CURRENT SITUATION
Western materialist capitalism. That’s obviously already failed. It’s been running on an empty tank for so long, and the next step is China of course, which is totalitarian capitalist-- Russia, too. It's where you use violent force and threats and fear to control the economy for profit. But all of them are going to collapse; it’s inevitable. You can’t have infinite growth forever when you’re on a finite piece of planet. We thought to preempt all that, we’d start with the patch, hence, “The One True Topi Tribe.”
THEE OPEN ROAD AHEAD
In any movement-- be it new or regurgitated or reassembled in a new way with a different emphasis, especially in street culture-- there are certain things that are very helpful. One is to have a great logo. Well, we already had that with the Psychick Cross. It was beautifully ubiquitous. Another possibility is cheap, easy outfits. It’s accessible to everyone who’s willing to make the investment for a patch. That’s why, in the beginning, industrial [style] was old camo and clothing, and it didn’t matter if it got dirty. Actually, being dirty was part of the function. This time, it’s a leather jacket or a denim vest. Slice off the sleeves, put a patch on it, and then decorate it how you wish with your own particulars. It gives you instant recognition and a very easy form of entry into groups, so that you see it and know that these people are probably going to have very similar thoughts to you. That’s why we’re working on that now, in advance of the collapse. A lot of people don’t know, but actually one of the Temple ov Psychick Youth [TOPY] access points was a motorcycle club. Called the Illuminati of Bavaria Motorcycle Club. Still got my colors from that. They were based in Portland, Oregon, and there were over 20 of them, all with bikes. It was a real motorbike club, an actual outlaw motorbike club. In the '80s, when it was really thriving (and when TOPY was too), we would tear down the West Coast and catch up with them in Portland. Then we’d have them as outriders as we went down the Coast. We were in our old school bus-- a ’66 school bus-- with the words “Even Further” written on the front, and it all looked fantastic going down the freeway. Very post-apocalyptic, very Mad Max. All very functional, mobile, nomadic, flexible. And even though it might look extreme in the way that we are deliberately inserting a movie into everyday life, the lines are so blurred anyway right now. It’s a good way of giving people strategies to work with. Even if you are using something as a metaphor or just for fun, it can still say to people, “Don’t forget, because you might find that useful in 'the futures'. That might be how you find yourself needing to operate.” For those people who wish to have a fulfilling, creative, and more free-flowing and free-thinking way of life, they need to take it upon themselves to build autonomous units that give that to them. The way to do that is to find enough like-minded people to create this super organism that is the sum-total of everyone involved. Partly why we’ve been using “we” so much, instead of “me", “you”, etc.
FIND THEE OTHERS
At the very beginning, we were seeking out what we nicknamed “hotspots” in the culture. At any time, there are usually pretty obvious signs of what’s exciting at the moment. We made the effort to find [William S.] Burroughs and hang out with him, and people have made the effort to find me. Then people make the effort to find them, and so on. It’s very much an organic thing. It’s an amazingly simple, but unusual process.
THEE NEXT-NEW WAY-ON
Psychic TV: new guitarist, new sound. That doesn’t mean it’s, “Oh shit, it doesn’t sound like us anymore.” Instead it’s, “Oh great! It doesn’t sound like us anymore!” It’s always been very flexible. One of the great things about it is that it keeps changing. On our last tour, we started to get a little bit tired, and one night we were sitting in the dressing room and they were all yelling for an encore. We just had this moment where we turned to Jeff and said, “Have you ever heard ‘Maggot Brain’ by Funkadelic?” “Yeah, of course.” “Ok, you’re the encore for tonight.” And he says, “But there’s a piano part.” So we look at Jess and she says, “Don’t look at me, I’ve never heard of Funkadelic.” So he says, “It’s easy. B flat, A, C, and la
dee da.” She says, “Ok, I can do that.” So they walked onstage in Moscow and played “Maggot Brain” for 20 minutes and totally entranced the audience. So Ed, when we got home, he said, “We should record that.”
We improv most things, actually. “Maggot Brain” really isn’t really the old “Maggot Brain” at all anymore, just a few notes here and there. That truly made me like music again, because in all honesty we’d kind of lost interest in Throbbing Gristle, and we thought we’d stop doing Psychic TV, and that was fine. When it’s not exciting, when it’s not giving anything, and nothing is moving, then don’t do it. Like we were saying before, go where the action is. Then suddenly the action is in PTV3 [current incarnation of Psychic TV], and the music is just really good and fun to play. We're shredding the speakers and doing wild prog rock. So that happened simultaneously with the idea of making a network again, with the biker sort of structure.
It’s all exciting. It’s been a while since we’ve been this excited. I mean, obviously we’ve been grieving for Lady Jaye for the past 3 years. All things considered, we’ve been pretty productive and efficient, despite that. There’s this huge influx of energy and it’s coming from the grassroots; it’s coming from young people coming in. We’re kind of being taught at the moment by new people to reevaluate everything. Not just throw things away because we've already done them, but reassess and rebuild and extend whatever’s working. It’s a really interesting time
We’re buzzing, yeah. It’s a hotspot… And yes, we are going
to get motorbikes.

B.K. SCUM PTV MIX!
A 45 minute TRIP:RESET MIX OF PTV!

I have been working with Gen to Organize this TOPI Dictionary (formerly and evolved from COUM-speak)
This Dictionary will evolve overtime as we discuss,
Notes from Gen.
These Words we actually invented that have entered the dictionaries and language as well as the tribal nuances. We can gradually create definitions but these can be added to with new interpretations and meanings by other Beings so its a bit like a wikipedia but a linguistic one.
To get things started here is a post rescued from Gen's old website...
In this circa 2003 posting from the Official Genesis website, Gen discusses his idiosyncratic writing style, his temporarily stoppage on using it, and it's revitalization.
"...Lady Jaye was talking to me about my idiosyncratic writing style. TOPI/TOPY speak as I.T. became known. S/he asked why E had stopped using I.T. After a while E realized I.T. was because people who E didn't know, and rather disparaged for their parasitism and bogus version ov T.O.P.Y. where they trade on our hard work in the 80's-90's butter at thee same T.I.M.E. pretend they find us NOT an influence. These people had left a nasty taste in our mouths. S/he pointed out that E shouldn't let others stupidities push me away from my own unique style. That my words, texts, and style, my evolutrions are mine alone, and their pretensions are irrelevant. Also Astory is fickle. E would feel far worse to think that by ignoring them they co-opted my creativity, or thee hard, difficult and sometimes PAINFUL dedication ov so many special Individuals, like Tom Coyote in Denver; Brother Words; Ossian Cyclobe; Sister Invisible; Brother Calle; and most ov all my children Caresse and Genesse who lost everything ov their childhood because we all believed in thee T.O.P.Y. and TOPI way. To help newcomers. Just let I.T. be known that T.O.P.Y. was a nett-work of Individuals that was all ways intended to have a 10 y-era cycle. Butter that TOPI is the essential ENERGY ov that experiment. TOPI is ongoing. All thee Ratio 5 Individuals remain in close collaborative contact, and any relevant new activities can be accessed via this website either via this journal, or via links."
"Thee key words that were created specifically by my SELF for thee TOPI lineage that you might need to ease entry are:-"
OCCULTURE - yes, before TOPY it didn't exist. I.T. was thee word coined for thee integration ov culture and magick in an active transmission by our collective and thee title ov our propaganda publications. I.T. has since been absorbed into thee Western occult tradition as a general term. Much to thee credit ov TOPI dedication.
I.T. - Imaginary T.I.M.E.
T.I.M.E. - Time Is Mimetic Energy
Butter - but...
E - "I". First used in a short novel E wrote in 1969 called Mrs. Askwith. It became natural to use it all thee T.I.M.E. It represents a genderless personal pronoun, an Evolutionary self, thee Ego as self mentioning obsession Etc.
Thee - Being from thee North ov England. Used instead ov "the". Also a reference to thee bible, and it's authoratative (implied) language. Also thee oral stress in pronuniciation.
PANDROGENY - Positive Androgeny. Combination also ov PAN and Androgeny. A TOPI evolutionary theory first written about by me in "Occulture" and other TOPI texts in the 1983-4. This is everywhere as I.T. was thee next phase ov TOPI in thee initial strategies.
Transmedia/Transmediator - Buy a copy of RATIO THREE, our book, and all is explained by Brother Words.
"OK. That should get you started. We hope it helps. I.T. can be used when a link in terms ov linear T.I.M.E. is implied. Which we feel is an illusion that traps us like language. The usual "it" can be used when T.I.M.E. is not ov thee essence."
"MEANWHILE: Thanks Lady Jaye for pointing out E should not let silly people steal my hard earned identity, should E choose to retain I.T. When thee news is very GENERAL we might revert to "normal" English to indicate that. For theories and imtimate thoughts we will probably use our own TOPI speak. Switching back and forth is an extended discipline to ensure thee minimising ov laziness and thee engendering ov discipline. Thank you all..."

SIGIL EXPERIMENT TO EXPAND OTTT AROUND TORONTO
• Posted by Fiachra on March 12, 2011 at 1:49pm
I created the following cards to release around Toronto. They are an experiment combining QR codes and "traditional" sigils, in this case to bring new members to this site from around the Toronto area. I'm writing an article on the method for Vincent S Baeza's zine. Interested to see how this works out.
Some advice from Ray Bradbury
