“The artist’s task is to save the soul of mankind; and anything less is a dithering while Rome burns. Because of the artists, who are self-selected, for being able to journey into the Other, if the artists cannot find the way, then the way cannot be found.” -Terence McKenna
 

To journey, lift the veil and see the Other side, is a safe way of dying and coming back. I know how to do it. I Am Old. I'll keep going, to bring you it's message, as Hermes Trismegistus taught me. As Wim Hof taught me to breathe. As Alan Watts taught me to get to the moment. I know how to slow down time and move the body fantastic, it's an old technique.  Old cave painter vision. Yes I'm making that parallel, artist & cave painter the same. It's in my genes, my heritage. Those that remember have the same task, show the Way.  I do the work and go into the Other, so you don't have to.  It's my purpose.
