STAGES (originally title TRANSCEND!)
Serenely let us move to distant places
And let no sentiments of home detain us.
The Cosmic Spirit seeks not to restrain us
But lifts us stage by stage to wider spaces.
-- The Glass Bead Game Hermann Hesse 1943
Motto for the R&D wing of a company that specializes in higher consciousness:
We are the Re-surge and Development team.
-- S. Watson
I have a tendency to open up the human secrets. I think, being human, that both life and death have a secret side but there's the temptation to reveal the truth and to see the fact that you need some courage or understanding about life or death. So, even if you try to reveal or open yourself, you're still a mystery, because everybody is a mystery. We can never understand ourselves. However we act or whatever we do is misleading. So in that case, it doesn't matter.
