outsider: "Though these words, he allied himself
with all the natural forces and manifestations of life and
the experience expressed by Gustave Flaubert's Saint Anthony:
I want to
fly, swim, bark, bleat, roar, would like to have wings,
a shell, bark, would like to belch smoke, have a muzzle,
coil my body,
divide myself and dissolve into everything, emanate myself
in odors, exfoliate like plants, flow like water, vibrate
like sound, shimmer like light, take on every form, penetrate
every atom, be absorbed into the fundament of matter---become
matter." H. Kalweit, Shamans,
Healers, and Medicine Men. Boston, MA., 1992. p.57.
of where?: "It becomes obvious that, once this border
has been crossed, the question 'where' (ubi, kojâ)
becomes meaningless at least in terms of the meaning it has in
the realm of sensible experience. Hence we find the expression Nâ-Kojâ-Abâd,
which is a place out of space, a 'place' that is not contained
in any other place, in a topos, making it possible to
give an answer to the question 'where' by a gesture of the hand.
What precisely do we mean, however, when we talk of 'leaving the where'"? H.

glacial mind: "One's
mind and the earth are in a constant state of erosion, mental rivers
wear away abstract banks, brain waves undermine cliffs of thought,
ideas decompose into stones of unknowing, and conceptional crystalizations
break apart into deposits of gritty reason." R.

people: "Here in the Northwest, and west of the Rockies
generally, Indian people regard Bigfoot with great respect. He
is seen as a special kind of being, because of his obvious close
relationship with humans. Some elders regard him as standing on
the 'border' between animal-style consciousness and human-style
consciousness, which gives him a special kind of power." G.
Highpine, "Attitudes Toward Bigfoot in Many North American
are still struggling to find ways to hold many quantum bits of information
(qubits) simultaneously in these superpositions of several states,
without them losing their mutual dependence. This dependence - called
entanglement - underpins the intelligibility of the information;
entangled particles are said to be 'coherent'. Researchers have so
far managed to maintain only two or three particles in entangled
states..." P. Ball, "Brain inspires new
memories. Quantum memories should mimic ours." Nature News
