Description
Short Song Description:
Long Song Description:
Smooth jazz with a lyric about the spiritual blindness Bruce encountered while developing the integrative unified field theory of biophysics. The first verse describes a relationship that failed due to such blindness; the second a collective response.

Bruce was too paradigmatically radical for his molecular biology peers and had to develop his water-based unified field theory in secret while pursuing the Ph.D. in medical science at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. Bruce is published with the State AIDS Director of New Mexico, Dr. Steve Jenison, as they developed the first diagnostic blood test for the hantavirus ahead of the CDC at UNM. Since then, Bruce developed the Spiral Violet 1 biophysics technology to combat such solar-mediated epidemics as the prototypical hantavirus, among many other of the most challenging diseases that traditional medicine has yet to effectively treat; AIDS, cancer, the mental health disorders, etc...
Story Behind the Song:
Bruce was then unknowingly intoxicated with mercury in his medical research lab and embarked on a quest to heal himself from the resulting life-destroying symptoms, such as a crippling, spinal arthritic, "archetypal hip wound" illness akin to the "Amfortas hip wound" of the Holy Grail myths, with cognitive difficulties as the mercury affected Bruce's nervous system. This emerged from the unconscious as a "wounded healer's journey" akin to the opus of medieval alchemy. In the analogous myth of the "Alchemical Mercurius," the protagonist has an encounter with the deadly god of mercury, then comes out of the ordeal with a new universal healing modality.

In real life, while going from doctor to doctor brought no alleviation of Bruce's then undiagnosed mercurial affliction, Bruce intuited that refining his biophysics technology was going to be the answer to resolve his illness, akin to slowly dying of old age in his mid-thirties. More of the story in the next song description, "Am I Forgiven?"

Lyrics
The Fire of a Diamond
Bruce Anderson 2008

Once a woman found a diamond ring,
Began to sing then she woke up,
It was just a dream,

But there are finer things than diamond rings,
The woman thought and she wondered,
What the dream could mean,

The fire of a diamond had burned once within her heart,
The dream she thought it was just a part,
Of what could never be,

But love is the ember that glows when the fire dies,
And though you could see it within her eyes,
She just couldn't see,

Refrain:

The fire of a diamond revealing a greater light,
Of an angel in flight,
The fire of a diamond revealing the rainbow,
Why can't we live in that light,
-

Once a prophet held the light within,
Knew he would win when he perished,
It was just a dream,

For he hid a diamond here on earth,
For those who worked to reveal it,
If they could only see,

The fire of a diamond had burned once within their hearts,
The dream they thought it was just a part,
Of what could never be,

But love is the ember that glows when the fire dies,
And though you could see it within their eyes,
They just couldn't see,

Refrain:

The fire of a diamond...
