The most unexpected and truly exquisite aspect of a writer’s life is that point where you’ve grasped the philosopher’s stone — where all the fundaments of building a story become a kind of codex for deconstructing them as well. At that point you’ve been initiated into the sanctum sanctorum of genius myth-makers and consciousness weavers of antiquity. The mysteries dissolve. The icons, lions, shamans, and culture creatives welcome you inside and you finally understand what you’ve been searching for. The one operating universal phenomenon of existence: the evolution of the human nervous system.
