Zitate Sun Ra

„People have a lot more of the unknown than the known in their minds. The unknown is great; it's like the darkness. Nobody made that. It just happens.“

—  Sun Ra
Context: People have a lot more of the unknown than the known in their minds. The unknown is great; it's like the darkness. Nobody made that. It just happens. Light and all that — someone made that; it's written that they did. But nobody made the darkness. My music is about dark tradition. Dark tradition means a lot more about than black tradition. There's a lot of division in what they call black. I'm not into division. I'm into coordination, discipline and tradition. As quoted in "Space is still the place" by W. Kim Heron in Metro Times (6 June 2007) http://www.metrotimes.com/editorial/story.asp?id=10582

„I probably do what I'm controlled to do. Something … made all this: some Impossibility without a name. That's what the world is controlled by: an Impossibility.“

—  Sun Ra
Context: I probably do what I'm controlled to do. Something … made all this: some Impossibility without a name. That's what the world is controlled by: an Impossibility. It's controlled by someone they call "God" who never had a beginning and naturally had no end. And in a sense He doesn't exist, because of the standards of reality, because everybody knows something can't just happen — but if there is a God, that's what happened; just happened to be, and without ever having not been — they got to face that. Interview with Jennifer Rycenga (2 November 1988)

„When the person Myth meets the person Reality
The spirit of the impossible-strange appears
In dark disguise“

—  Sun Ra
Context: When the person Myth meets the person Reality The spirit of the impossible-strange appears In dark disguise It is always there where nothing inverts itself and becomes something Whatever is the imperative need "The No Point", p. 256

„I'll build a world of abstract dreams
And wait for you.“

—  Sun Ra

and it takes a notion to motion.“

„Sometimes in the ignorance
I feel the meaning“

—  Sun Ra
Context: Sometimes in the ignorance I feel the meaning Invincible invisible wisdom, And I commune with intuitive instinct With the force that made life be And since it made life be It is greater than life And since it let extinction be It is greater than extinction. I commune with feelings more than prayer "The Differences" (1970), p. 132
