when do we take off our monkey costumes

when do we take off

when do we ecstatically launch forth

into non-ordinary states of consciousness

& Uncle Tom Cobley & all

& all

all those explorers & pioneers

visionaries & crazy seers

who went before & way beyond


beyond this small parochial pond

we call normality

huarmi-nahui-Pablo-Amaringo.jpg (437367 bytes)

beyond beyond

following the contours of a fractal frond

mini-Mandelbrot_01.gif (43149 bytes)

farther & farther out to sea

in tidal waves of light & sound

senses awash in flux & flow

dissolving deep

in quantum space infinity

beyond duality

beyond beyond beyond


eons each hour

time distended

when will we boldly go

into our mind

leaving behind

old blind conditioned

consensus pseudo-reality

infinity-sign8.jpg (28345 bytes)


when will we be

wide awake dreaming

dancing free


when where there is no time

but just this eternity here

shining clear


ayahuasca-visions_009.jpg (177859 bytes)


when if not now

but how


& when will we go wow

in wordless wonder

beyond words

wow wow wow

"You, my dear friends, and millions all over the world who now commemorate the 50th birthday of ergot's child, we all testify gratefully that we got valuable help on the way to what Aldous Huxley said is the end and the ultimate purpose of human life--enlightenment, beatific vision, love. I think all these joyful testimonies of invaluable help by LSD should be enough to convince the health authorities, finally, of the nonsense of the prohibition of LSD and of similar psychedelics."

Dr. Albert Hofmann,1993, celebrating the 50th anniversary of his famous bicycle ride which took place on 19th April 1943.
