“One day I found out that personal history was no longer necessary for me and, like drinking, I dropped it… Little by little you must create a fog around yourself; you must erase everything around you until nothing can be taken for granted, until nothing is any longer for sure, or real. Your problem now is that you’re too real. Your endeavors are too real, your moods are too real. Don’t take things so for granted. You must begin to erase yourself.”
Carlos Castaneda

Journey to Ixtlan


This part of the website was originally created to hold my playful experiment of Reading Lila. Over time I sensed it accumulating its own presence and core energy and a potential to hold more. It achieved “critical mass” and tipped over into this, its more comprehensive form when I chose to house in it Christopher Alexander and The Nature of Order.

This space is becomig a home for subjects I consider to be metaphysical: ideas that have reshaped my view of the world.
