The Shaman’s Door: a Poeticized Precis of ‘Invisible Landscapes’, by Terence & Dennis McKenna

There is a disconnected set of assumptions we call “science”, “materialism”. Both forget that entities’ fundamental identities are not the same as their material components. We are more mind, consciousness, than physical beings; a gestalt that begs the evolutionary question: whose tadpole brain switched with the salamander’s? Third eye pineal …

Two Rivers


Two souls, Like fluid dynamics owned them As they slid subtly under currents People think run the universe, Subsumed one another completely But, Without rational cause,  Like no laws governed any realm,  Came out renewed,  Liberated,  Able to float on winds like vapor, Finding the molecules of their beings Expanded …


Sine Curve of Aeons – Meyers Briggs Types



  Flames rise and fall within and not many can see. We feel innately; we know without knowing, but it’s so hard to resist the fear, to let ourselves become what we can be.   A fragmented fragility, like skin wrapped too tight and thin, was caught in whirlpool ravagings …

But, for us, …


Sol y Diversión

Teaching: The Biggest Disappointment of My Life

I understand all of it, I’m not confused, I’m not asking for clarification. I’m just sick of teaching. I’m over it. This signals the beginning of the end. As the most idealistic and principled person I know, teaching was a natural choice. I can help people, I’ll never be asked …

Luminous Revenge - Andy Kehoe

Make Meaning

The universe has existed forever. We don’t even know what that means. There is no way for our grey-limited brains to comprehend the meaning of limitless. The idea can’t solidify. We are stuck in that limitation, physically. Then again, we are not so physical, are we? No matter which way …

Green Dragon: the Whiskey Weed

Pain occasionally eats away my will to live. It strikes suddenly and sometimes I cry out in the middle of an otherwise normal moment, prompting people around me to jump back and frantically search the skies for danger. The threat is only inside of me, though. They can’t see it. …

Muses Afloat

I always thought I could never write fiction. Words are easy, grammar is easy, format is easy, spelling is easy, describing what I see and feel is easy….making shit up and detailing an entirely new world full of entirely new people, however, is fucking hard. That’s what I always thought. …


Slaying the Dragon

People have begun to ask me, “Quorri, why do you always end up in the jobs with the bad principals. Couldn’t it be that you are the one with the problem, not them?” It’s a great question. It’s that old adage, “If the whole world smells like shit, check your …

Doom Porn

  The latest Doom Porn to roll our way is coming not from a fringe, conspiracy theory-loving alarmist, but from one of our most rational, materialist centers of authoritative science in our society: NASA. This study is not yet available to the public, as far as I can find, and …


List o’ Bad: A Concise Summary of What’s Wrong in the West

I’ve been gone for a while. Vacation is nice.  I tried not to think about the world while I was hanging out with my family in a winter paradise, but now I’m back and the world is not looking so hot.  With the start of 2014, we have to collectively …
