Well alas it seems to have gotten quiet again. Very quiet. I fear I will have
to start posting things to set people off, like wild and wooly theroies by
Ternece and Dennis Mc Kenna form Invisible Landsacpes. Shall I dare try. Some
of it is weird and I am disinclined to say itholds much matter. But somehow
the phrase: "I don't want to be a giant insect!!!" has a certain ring to it.
Perhaps he read a a but too much Kafka or hraven forbid too many Gor Bad
Sci-Fi novels before bedtimes. If Frueds day residue theories holds.

Anyway that aside has anyone received more info and did the project to

of those things as the song goes: "We had some many dreams and now they have
faded out of view.

Have Fun,
