born outsider: "Though these words, he allied himself with all the natural forces and manifestations of life and realized 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 into every atom, be absorbed into the fundament of matter---become matter." H. Kalweit, Shamans, Healers, and Medicine Men. Boston, MA., 1992. p.57.

outside 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. Corbin, "Mundus Imaginalis or the Imaginary and the Imaginal." Spring 1972. p.3.

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. Smithson, "A Sedimentation of the Mind: Earth Projects. (1968)." In, J. Flam, Editor, Robert Smithson: The Collected Essays. Berkeley, CA., 1996. p.100.

indigenous 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 Cultures."

entanglement: "Researchers 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."
