cave geometry the name is a little mis- giving, because of course there is no real geometry in the caves. you may feel as if you are venturing into some vast structure, but you are in fact leaving any such thing at the entrance. leaving physical tethers behind, submitting to an inescapable darkness, the world around you becomes more of a manifestation of your mind, or a collective mind, with a shape and a direction and a taste. inescapeable darkness, because if you bring a candle or mount electrical lights, the walls only serves as markers to where the tiny spatial existence ends and the darkness beneath it begins. like an inverted mandelbrot, the real cave is actually not the pockets, but the black around them. keep that in mind. the moisture that permeates any cave worth it's name... it's the water the world rose from. it's the water you drown in, in your dreams. the only sounds in the cave are those that you make yourselves. they may be distorted by the stone structure, and amplified by your mind. try not to be alarmed, try to remember the persons and objects around you, and you can discern a mirage from a friend.
