General"O Marvel! a garden amidst the flames. My heart has become capable of every form: it is a pasture for gazelles and a convent for Christian monks, and a temple for idols and the pilgrim's Kaa'ba, and the tables of the Torah and the book of the Quran. I follow the religion of Love: whatever way Love's camels take, that is my religion and my faith."
-ibn al-..Arabi, Tarjuman al-Ashwaq, in The Mystics of Islam, translated by Reynold A Nicholson

Siddhartha listened. He was now nothing but a listener, completely concentrated on listening, completely empty, he felt, that he had now finished learning to listen. Often before, he had heard all this, these many voices in the river, today it sounded new.
Already, he could no longer tell the many voices apart, not the happy ones from the weeping ones, not the ones of children from those of men, they all belonged together, the lamentation of yearning and the laughter of the knowledgeable one, the scream of rage and the moaning of the dying ones, everything was one, everything was intertwined and connected, entangled a thousand times.
And everything together, all voices, all goals, all yearning, all suffering, all pleasure, all that was good and evil, all of this together was the world. All of it together was the flow of events, was the music of life.
And when Siddhartha was listening attentively to this river, this song of a thousand voices, when he neither listened to the suffering nor the laughter, when he did not tie his soul to any particular voice and submerged his self into it, but when he heard them all, perceived the whole, the oneness, then the great song of the thousand voices consisted of a single word, which was Om: the perfection.
"Do you hear, " Vasudeva's gaze asked again.
Brightly, Vasudeva's smile was shining, floating radiantly over all the wrinkles of his old face, as the Om was floating in the air over all the voices of the river.

"...unfortunately barbarians do seem to serve a purpose in history, for when we have them as enemies at our gates we no longer have to judge ourselves. For a brief moment, anyway, our innate savagery is safely out there beyond the city walls and we can rejoice in in our self-righteousness and be smug in our petty civic virtues"
I highly recommend Edward Whittemore's astounding Jerusalem Quartet. The writing is breathtakingly beautiful and the characters resonate long after you finish the books. From Rabelasian humor to profound tragedy to heart-wrenching meditations on the human spirit, the Jerusalem Quartet has it all. These are simply the best books I have read in years!

Dick, James Ellroy, Jonathon Carroll, Edward Whittemore, Thomas Pynchon, Charles Willeford, Hakim Bey, Umberto Eco, Aldous Huxley, Jilaladin Rumi, Ibn Arabi, Robert Anton Wilson, Alfred Jarry, Dan Simmons, H.P.

HeroesI don't know about heroes, per se, but here's a list of folks I admire who have influenced me.

"Everyone will live in their own cathedral. There will be rooms that will awaken fantasies more vivid than any drug. There will be houses where it will be impossible not to fall in love. Other houses will prove irresistibly attractive to the benighted traveller..." -Ivan Chtcheglov
""Like what you like, enjoy what you enjoy, don't be afraid to make slurping sounds, and don't take crap from anybody." -The Guns & Dope Party
Who I'd like to meet:I very much enjoy spinning for deeply creative people hosting unimaginable events, rituals, installations and salons. Why not enjoy ineffable, progressive sound at your next secret society soiree or sordid, sentimental sleepover. Music is magick! The Improv Everywhere heroes of the No-Pants 2K8 Marathon. I doff my pants to you! (Thanks to Luz for pointing this out!)
Khidr, the Green Man.
I'd like to meet people who can spell and have mastered basic grammar.

I worked on the gnostic dialogue modules for the Philip K. Dick android, who disappeared shortly after its premier and remains missing. I've met him but didn't get the chance to discuss enough. For more info: http://www.hansonrobotics.com/
