Some come by it because of Autism, others because of a brain injury, other because of epilepsy, and perhaps there are other ways.... This is yet another reason why we grow...  And this lies at the crux of why I explore these realms of mystery, magick, and mayhem.  Perhaps you may find the pathway...

I agree! The psyche seems to be a mnemonic device for remembering... that which has been forgotten.

As a long-time Incredible String Band fan, my favourite number (three) will always be a green crown.

"For all that is moving is moved by her hands
She is mirrored forever in the life of the lands
In the building of thoughts in the shifting of sands
Life life remembering"

Of course! Evolution is not some dead thing that just proceeds along some proscribed path, rather it's the very conciousness of "matter" itself coming to recognize itself.

It does seem to be so, but clearly we are way off track. I love the last verse:

"Vibrating light forever one the sun
The book of life is open to us
There'll be no secrets left between us"

What will it look like when the equation is balanced, when there are "no secrets left", or when the simulation becomes indistinguishable from the ideal or truth? Or is the modern world, as Baudrillard suggests, really only a simulacrum, a vain grasping at wind?

"The simulacrum is never that which conceals the truth—it is the truth which conceals that there is none. The simulacrum is true."

I'm still on the fence.

Yes!... The map is not the territory...

Until it is.
