MinXus Mail Bag: A gaze into the void courtesy of Not Hi Ng OTM (San Pablo, California, USA) or “Being and Not Hi Ngness”

Recent invention by Not Hi Ng (San Pablo, California, USA) – “The New Enlightener Apparatus of York”

Last year, Empress Marie Antonette named our good friend and faithful correspondent Not Hi Ng to the prestigious and exclusive Order of the Tangerine Mink.

This has proven to be a fortuitous choice for MinXus-Lynxus. Not Hi Ng has generously shared the resources of the Institute of Art Agnosticism with us. The International Exhibition of Holes (still ongoing) has added to our knowledge of holes (Hology) considerably and the increased understanding of the relationship of the hole to nothing and thus the relation of art to nothing and human no-ledge (knowledge). Not Hi Ng’s contributions are immeasurable.

We sent, for his examination and consideration, the found plastic hole you see above (originally a cable outlet household wall protector?). Dark wall added some asemic decorations. Also an inventor of all sorts of useful gadgets (very much in the Fluxus spirit), Not Hi Ng studied the piece and added the lens, creating “The New Enlightener Apparatus of York,” which is safely stored and protected in the Minxus USA archives. Having tested it, we do feel that this device should not be circulated in the general population. It is, indeed, mystical and powerful. What if this were to fall into the hands of TOXIS or the Neoists?

But why explain in our faltering prose? Tenderfoots, we share with you Not Hi Ng’s missive (marked OMBO – Official MinXus Business Only):

Here is page two:

We consider this correspondence art of the highest order. Not Hi Ng has made vast associations, helping us to see connecting patterns that illuminate existence itself. Wow, the references to Finnegans Wake are enlightening unto themselves, as Joyce sought to create a narrative of the simultaneous where present, past and future are all occurring at once. Words fail us, but the “MinXus-Lynxus Position Statement of Retro-Futurism” concurs completely with Not Hi Ng’s contentions.  He also makes a reference to Empress Marie’s Louisiana Alligator Ranch adventures. Here is some found material he sent us:

We also proudly display the Institute of Art Agnosticism stamp from the envelope he sent:

Deepest thanks to Not Hi Ng, OTM.

We encourage you to visit Not Hi Ng’s Founder’s Exhibition at the Institute of Art Agnosticism:

    On a more serious note, fantastic mail! No wonder he can achieve this level of research with lepidopterist engineers in his team. Is Dw going to test the amended invention?

    I looked in Mr. Not Hi Ng’s ‘traption there & I seen a dragon crawling in a big pit way off on some other planet somewhere. Rancher says: “Dw, there’s a scorpion crawling in your shoe.” I says Rancher: “And somewhere off on another planet there is dragon crawling in a pit.”

    I looked again after lunch and I seen a Neoist.

    Rancher, Mr. Not Hi Ng’s traption gives me the power of clear buoyance. I got the shinin’ now like that fella up there in the Overlook writin all day “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” just like Hick Diggins.

    Here’s Johnny!

    Thanks for posting this De Villo. I’m convinced the Enlightener, in the hands of Dark Wall, has the potential to unleash unimaginable power of the understanding of Nothing. However I believe DW has aways understood Nothing as well as anyone ever has. Keep an eye on him tho, to prevent him from looking through it in the wrong direction. This can lead to a deep understanding of things within oneself that one should never know.

    That is the finest acceptance speech I have ever seen/heard/read. Holy mackerel, Not Hi Ng should be contracted by the tream at the Oscars or the Brit Awards, any of those Toxis agents could learn a thing from not.
