I’ll play it first, and tell you what it is, later
- Miles Davis
The composition of vast books is a laborious and impoverishing extravagance. To go on for five hundred pages developing an idea whose perfect oral exposition is possible in a few minutes! A better course of procedure is to pretend that these books already exist, and then to offer a resume, a commentary.. More reasonable, more inept, more indolent, I have preferred to write notes upon imaginary books.
- Borges, The Garden of Forking Paths, 1942

Our task is to liberate potential artists through the arrhythmic hallucination of the wor(l)d and the variable inter-relationism of supersubjective polydentity, making them aware of the wider potential scope of their their spiritual enterprises and of their conditions as ‘Humalien’ guardians of the fantastical, psychedelic-alien present. At least I think so
