Example text

Let us die then, and enter into this darkness. Let us silence all our care, desires, and imaginings” (Bonaventure, Journey of the Mind into God). Only being undone in the black victory of totally disorienting death, only ascending the “skeleton throne” will one “Reign . . / The realm of the beast” (Darkthrone, “Black Victory): “Son of a giant, I have never / From the wrathful run. / Son of a lion—of all beasts the king— / I have ever lived in the snow mountains. / To make a task of life is but a joke to me” (The Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa, “Song of the Snow Ranges”).

No need to call to Him from afar: He can hardly wait for you to open up. He longs for you a thousand times more than you long for Him: the opening and the entering are a single act” (Meister Eckhart, Complete Mystical Works, Sermon 4). To enter your mountain signifies to truly stand with what stands, to mount through form to the sublime (sublimen) threshold or infinite side of what is beyond form, and thus, to step into the omnipresent mutual inclination of summit and home: “To return to the mountaintop: it is not given emphasis or developed in advance by anything human, and yet, as not only quantitative but also qualitative sublimity, it is not 6 BERGMETAL turned away from the category of home, which expressly inclines towards it” (Ernst Bloch, “Alps”).

As the silent presence of the mountain here absorbs its very objecthood before intellectual vision, splitting the mirror of spirit and matter and thus opening the expansive solitude of pure prayer or being alone with the alone, so the alpine mysterium shows forth as power to return and sink silence back towards itself, revealing silence as mountain’s own musical dictation. S AD MOBS APPLAUD , KNOWING NOTHING : The Bathory lyrics begin by contrasting the blind dumbness of the crowd with the individualized visionary path of the one who enters the mountain: “Blind fools who see only what they tell you to / Open up your eyes you might see it too / See there is a lot to see within you too / Don't be like the rest and let them take it from you / Dumb fools who say only what they tell you to / Speak up and find that there is more truth within you than you knew” (Bathory, “To Enter Your Mountain”).
