Gravity's Rainbow

botany, shoes, books, and justice


Hildegard von Bingen was born about 1000 years ago. She was sickly and had “visions.”

Based on her drawings and writing, a few scholars now believe she had migraines. Looks like in an environment where auras were interpreted as mystical visions, she did pretty well, becoming

> a German Benedictine abbess, writer, composer, philosopher, Christian mystic, visionary, and polymath.[1] She is considered to be the founder of scientific natural history in Germany.

These visions inspired much of what she created, including her music. I often hallucinate music that sounds very much like this during my auras.
