THE     SUBTLE     REBELLION      
                                        
                    
                                        
 AS A  MONKEY  BASED  MAMMAL  THERE IS AN 
 INHERITED  VEIL,  NESTED INTO  OUR  VERY 
 BODIES, INTO  THE PHYSICAL  STRUCTURE OF 
 OUR   MIND:   THE   URGE   TO    FORGET. 
                                        
                                        
 THE   JUNGLE  WE  VISIT  EACH  NIGHT  IS 
 CLEARED  FROM OUR  MINDS  EYE  AT  EVERY 
 WAKING HOUR,  NO DOUBT TO "PROTECT  US". 
                                        
                                        
 WE   DON'T   WANT    THIS    PROTECTION! 
                                        
 WE WANT  TO  LISTEN TO  THE  SIGNAL, NOT 
 THE    CARRIER    OF     WAKING    LIFE! 
                                        
                                        
 IT'S  TIME   TO   REBEL   AGAINST   THIS 
 PREDESTINATION OF  OURS.  IT'S  TIME  TO 
 SOAK  IN  THE DREAMY  WATER, AND  WHAT'S 
 MORE,        TO        RETAIN        IT! 
                                        
  
                                          
                                          
                                          
        CHIPPING AWAY THE DARKNESS        
                
                                          
    WE CAN BREAK THROUGH THE VEIL. AS     
   ALWAYS, IT BEGINS WITH A JOURNAL. WE   
 MUST WRITE DOWN OUR NIGHTLY PROJECTIONS. 
                                          
 THIS WILL BE AWKWARD AT FIRST, SINCE IT  
   ENTAILS BREAKING SLEEP - TURNING ON    
  LIGHTS IN THE DARK, TAKING THE TIME TO  
          REMEMBER AND TO WRITE.          
                                          
  IN ORDER TO REMEMBER, LIE STILL. DON'T  
    MOVE. DISREGARD ALL THOUGHTS OF THE   
    DREAM BEING MUNDANE OR MEANINGLESS.   
                                          
   KEEP CHIPPING AWAY THE DARKNESS: WHAT  
    HAPPENED? HOW? HOW DID I GET THERE?   
   WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE? AND BEFORE? AND  
                  BEFORE?                 
                                          
  SOMETIMES ALL WE GET IS A FEELING, OR   
  SOME LINGERING SPACIAL AWARNESS OF AN   
    ALIEN PLACE, OR THE NOTION THAT IT    
             RAINED JUST NOW.             
                                          
   WRITE IT DOWN. WHATEVER TINY THING.    
                                          
                                          
                                          
          NOTE ON TAPE RECORDERS          
                    
                                          
  OF COURSE I TRIED TAPE RECORDERS. THEY  
 ARE MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE AS I NEED NOT  
  OPEN ANY EYES, OR MOVE VERY MUCH. BUT   
  THEY MAKE STUDYING HARD - THE DREAM IS  
     INSIDE THERE, HIDDEN AWAY AGAIN.     
                                          
  WE JUST CHANGE ONE KIND OF INVISIBILITY 
  FOR ANOTHER. THE PURPOSE OF THE BOOK IS 
              TO LAY BARE.
