In Memoriam Albert Hoffmann
O nobly-born, that which is called death being come to thee now, resolve thus: 'O this now is the hour of death. By taking advantage of this death, I will so act, for the good of all sentient beings, peopling the illimitable expanse of the heavens, as to obtain the Perfect Buddhahood, by resolving on love and compassion towards them, and by directing my entire effort to the Sole Perfection.'
-- The Tibetan Book of the Dead
If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is: infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thru' narrow chinks of his cavern.
-- William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell
