note: i read somewhere that foucault dropped acid in the mojave desert and said it was the
    <best experience of his life>
moving                 away
from the *idea* that drugs especially h a l l u c i n o g e n s  are the {realm of spiritual fulfillment}
i try to 
construct 
the feeling 
of 
infinite knowledge 
as a space and as a place 
of real learning it is a
postmodern space so characterized by 

isolation

who else but yourself could know what it is like exactly
it has shades of [cubism]
light
looks
different 
             a millimeter away

but is essentially a lesson in neurology 

every ideology becomes
|condensed|
into the physical reality of our brain as an organ functioning the best it can.

nothing will be known.

this landscape seems to say “until you can examine qualia objectively - that is disconnect yourself from your own experiences - this impossible space shows that it is the last frontier of being human and it is impossible to overcome.”
