David Bowie, as one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, needs little introduction. His legacy continues to endure well into the 21st. However, there are some interesting points to highlight when considering this session.
Of course, he was known for his eclectic and evolving musical style, which encompassed a wide range of genres, and for his distinctive voice and theatrical stage presence. Throughout his career, Bowie also adopted a number of different personas, from Ziggy Stardust to the Thin White Duke, which often reflected and commented upon different facets of popular culture and his own inner experiences.
The remote viewing session depicted a spiritual being, one who incorporated feminine characterstics at first (this also could have been someone else present), and also later masculine ones, who as an "emissary of light" or light-being was able to change projection at will. There were was mention of his wry sense of humor, wisdom, curiosity, stoicism, and majesty, in addition to some cosmic plan that was laid out in a cosmic digital tablet (probably a life plan as much as a cosmic plan). Later he was described as wearing tall boots, shoulder pads, or accoutrements, walking down a platform.
David was a true chameleon, both in terms of musical style and personal identity. He was restless, always looking to reinvent himself and push boundaries. He was also introspective, using his music and personas to explore different aspects of his identity, society, and the human condition.
He was known to be articulate, intelligent, and often deeply philosophical in interviews. Additionally, he incorporated some sense of androgyny, such as in personas like Ziggy Stardust, perhaps the most famous of Bowie's personas, who was an androgynous rock star from space. With his flame-red hair, makeup, and flamboyant clothing, Ziggy blurred the lines between male and female, human and alien. Another of Bowie's personas, the Thin White Duke, was a more subdued, elegant, yet still androgynous figure. With his slicked-back hair and sharp suits, he exuded a kind of cold, detached masculinity that was tempered by a certain androgynous allure.
The RV session had its fair share of sci-fi depictions. It also referenced some other potential lives and the heaviness felt after returning from one of them. In another one, the subject was seen as upturned, falling downward, kind of like a falling angel (perhaps reminiscent of the Man Who Fell to Earth, a 1976 role in which he played a humanoid alien).
David Bowie's spiritual beliefs were as varied and evolving as his musical style. Over the years, he dabbled in different religions and spiritual practices, often incorporating them into his music and personas. In his early years, Bowie had a significant interest in Buddhism. In the 1960s, he even considered becoming a Buddhist monk, spending some time at Samye Ling Monastery in Scotland. This influence can be seen in songs like "Silly Boy Blue," which references
Bowie also had phases where he was deeply interested in the occult, kabbalah, and other esoteric practices. This period in the mid-70s influenced albums like "Station to Station," with songs like "Quicksand" referencing the English occultist Aleister Crowley.
Bowie's relationship with Christianity was complicated. While he was raised in the Christian tradition, he often explored its themes critically in his work. However, in his later life, especially following a health scare in the early 2000s, he seemed to embrace a more personal form of Christianity. This can be observed in songs like "Lazarus" from his final album, "Blackstar."
In summary, David Bowie was a multifaceted individual whose interests and beliefs spanned a wide spectrum of ideas and cultures. His exploration of identity, both personal and collective, and his spiritual journeying, are part of why his body of work is considered so rich and enduring. While it is difficult to delve into single or multiple lives, a single body of work AND focus on the higher perspective in one session, I feel like I explored enough of these things to make it an interesting hit.
