compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion
Having genuinely come to believe that they had planned a
special celebratory weekend away for the four of us, we
were packed up in Pauline's newly acquired Honda Jazz
and then we set off to who knows where, being guided by

∞ Ultimate INTEGRAL ART is created by the artist who - IS fully cognisant of the TAO of nature & the Great Spirit of LIFE - & IS driven by the Vision of Godhead - for the entertainment of those who would experience the art - at whatever level of enlightenment they had attained - such that the potential existed for the perceiver to perceive what had been perceived by the artist • as ONE • and no better exemplar exists for me, in this respect, than he who created the ART of MOUNT FUJI, namely Katsushika Hokusai, who transformed our perception of [IT] the mountain, as sitting in almost ZEN-like CONTEMPLATION.

student of quantum physics, general systems and chaos theory.
His ideas can best be crystallised by this following statement...
“Briefly, what I am proposing is that the psychology of the mature human
being is an unfolding, emergent, oscillating, spiralling process, marked

here and there, when her voice thickened & she appeared
to be in tears: tears, more than anything, of frustration.

[IT] aims to transform man's consciousness
about himself/herself and the universe.
Although the same character for ZEN and CHAN is used in
writing, they are pronounced differently in each language,
but both ZEN and CHAN were originally derived from the
Indian word dhyana, which means "meditation". ZEN

IS entirely different from Indian meditation.
