 Some Rants and Notes about Automatic Poetic Practices in the 21st Century
With automatism, or automatic writing, in particular, the goal is not “therapy” or any kind of mysticism (religious or otherwise), but a liberation of thought, as it is written down word by word as quickly as possible.
For this reason, automatic writing (and other forms of automatism, such as the visual kind) is highly prized by surrealists as a technique of liberating the human psyche when it is temporarily visible in its nakedness, without the interference from moral or rationalistic filters.
The alienation of poetry (whose alienation is maintained, in part, by the social sciences and their unspoken code of Normality, in response to the demands of money) represents an alienation from the human experience, and ultimately an alienation from “life,” as all of us would idealize it.

 Contemporary Surrealism and the surrealist movement @ www.surrealcoconut.com
One of the advantages of automatic writing is that it has the interesting property of dissolving the various artificial barriers erected within the human psyche, tending to address the various alienations created by our terribly advanced society.
The same could be said for those who are looking for the popular, logically elaborated stories and novels that have a "beginning, middle and end." Automatic writing isn't about any of that, and with any kind of automatism, there is no planned or predictable outcome.
Analogously, all of the "new-age" writers of the present moment, who claim to be surrealist, do not even bother with automatic writing techniques [for them, it's as if 1) automatic writing never existed, or sometimes 2) automatic writing is thought of only as an exotic spew of words, a fetish].
