Paul Blackburn Statement This 1954 piece was published in the book The Parallel Voyages , Sun-Gemini Press,1987. It is reprinted here with permission.

Techniques of juxtaposition. Techniques of speech rhythms, sometimes very intense, sometimes developed slowly, as one would have conversation with a friend. Personally, I affirm two things: in the human relationship : as juxtaposed against the materialistic pig of a technological world, where relationships are only ‘useful’ i.e., exploited, either psychologically or materially. 2
