“We are perceivers. We are an awareness; we are not objects; we have no solidity. We are boundless. The world of objects and solidity is a way of making our passage on earth convenient. It is only a description that was created to help us. We, or rather our reason, forget that the description is only a description and thus we entrap the totality of ourselves in a vicious circle from which we rarely emerge in our lifetime … So, in essence, the world that your reason wants to sustain is the world created by a description and its dogmatic and inviolable rules, which the reason learns to accept and defend … from now on you should let yourself perceive whether the description is upheld by your reason or by your will.”
Carlos Castaneda

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.
