“You’re in a terrible spot. It’s too late for you to retreat but too soon to act. All you can do is witness. You’re in the miserable position of an infant who cannot return to the mother’s womb, but neither can he run around and act. All an infant can do is witness and listen to the stupendous tales of action being told to him. You are at that precise point now. You cannot go back to the womb of your old world, but you cannot act with power either. For you there is only witnessing acts of power and listening to tales of power.”
Carlos Castaneda

Tales of Power

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.
