‘Art lies in the silent, pulsating intervals between the high notes and the low notes.  It lies in the feeling that steals into you from listening to an ode, a feeling that remains hushed, quiet, and alone in the spirit of the poet.  It lies in the picture’s revelation to you, so that you see, while you are gazing at it, what transcends and is more beautiful than it.’  ~ Kahlil Gibran (‘The Husk and the Pith’)

‘At the antipodes of the mind, we are more or less completely free of language, outside the system of conceptual thought.’  ~ Aldous Huxley (‘The Doors of Perception’).

‘From experience, I came to learn that ayahuasca bestows upon the user knowledge about a variety of topics, not only consciousness and perception, but also leads one to realize that what we perceive is an illusion.’  ~ Pablo Amaringo
