Hi solitaire,

Thank you. And yes Castaneda is really fun stuff :). The first book I read from his collection was the "Fires from within". That contains allot of dialog from Don Juan about the nature of his system's term "assemblage point". Which is a term that helped me form association chains that helped concrete conceptualizations. For me especially to do with what Graham talks about with "retuning the receiver wavelength".

I can remember Don Juan approaching Carlos from behind, after taking him to some remote location in the desert, and "striking" him on his aura. His sorcerers "attention" perception could see this assemblage point as an actual point on the aetheric "egg" of a persons aura. Once struck, Carlos would suddenly find his perception re-calibrated into a different dimension.

I always find it helpfull to keep in mind the notion that the map is not the territory. The map can only describe the territory indirectly. There are no words that can encompass that which refers to states of mind that are outside the framework of the state of mind that language stems from.

Cheers

Jared
