Re: "Tickets Wanted" requests and my reaction to it

In 1966 I would sit at the table with my grandparents and eat breakfast before school (high school) and I remember him saying " There are two kinds of people in the world; the Have's and the Have-Nots" and I also remember thinking that he was so out of touch and that when I was older the world would...

Don't yell "Down in front!" anymore

When you're watching the Man or the Temple burn,
and you're sitting and you don't like people standing
OR
You're standing and don't like people asking you to sit down
Think of something good to yell
Instead of cursing at each other

Make it fun!

Mayavin provides a good medium for the growth of consciousness, like bacteria on a petri dish. We have an advantage over the Greek philosophers since we can use statistics for our insights. They would debate how many teeth a horse would have based on whether man was superior to the horse, but they w...

Delight at having understood a very abstract and obscure system leads most people to believe in the truth of what it demonstrates.
~Georg C. Lichtenberg

I say there is no consciousness without desire. The desire to know and it's delights.

Eye contact is the window to Another World, and will always mark you as a Possible Subversive. Its a luxury anywhere else but Burning Man, and even there it's a risk.

I never try to talk people into going. I just tell them what it was like for me, and that I would help them if they decided on their own to go.

Burning Man is not easy to like, I think a person has to want to like it.

I got in at 2 am monday morn, and met a virgin greeter. He was very nice, took the cold fat tire i offered and started chatting, but the master greeter girl told him to hurry me up there were people behind me lol.
Other greeters were having the virgin burners make dust angels.

Did anyone else notice the barbed wire around the upper base of The Man this year?
Like the concertina wire around the freeway signs on LA freeways.

I saw a baby in a stroller outside center camp when it was quite dusty and windy. The baby did not look happy, and did not have any respirator or cloth covering his face. The mother seemed oblivious.
Should I have said something to her? I did not.
Should I feel ashamed? I do.
