Psychonaut – a modern portmanteau of the Greek words for soul and sailor i.e. a traveler of the mind/soul. A person who experiences intentionally induced altered states of consciousness in order to investigate the mysteries of his or her deepest inner space, and address spiritual questions through direct experience.
Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.
My role in society, or any artist’s or poet’s role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.
The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty “yes” to your adventure.
I live on Earth at present,
and I don’t know what I am.
I know that I am not a category.
I am not a thing — a noun.
I seem to be a verb,
an evolutionary process –
an integral function of the universe.
~ R. Buckminster Fuller
And those who were seen dancing
were thought to be insane
by those who could not hear the music
