"My life, as I saw it, was to be a transcendence, a progress from step to step, a series of realms to be traversed and left behind one after another, just as a piece of music perfects, completes and leaves behind theme after theme, tempo after tempo, never tired, never sleeping, always aware and always perfect in the present. I had noticed that, coincidental with the experience of awakening, there actually were such steps and realms, and that each time a life stage was coming to an end it was fraught with decay and desire for death before leading to a new realm, and awakening and to a new beginning."
- An excerpt from Hermann Hesse's The Glass Bead game. The main character, Joseph Knect, is explaining an experience he coins an "awakening"
About the Author
I'm a schizoprogramedesigner. I started as a graphic designer and grew fond of animations and UX using flash. Did I mention I love math and science? Oh right, I love physics, which leads me to love math and science. I am insanely addicted to future technology. I would love to invent a levitation device, but my current skills restrict me to my recent Raspberry Pi addiction.I have a real passion for art in it's rawest form. I'm not the greatest of artists, not even by a long shot, but I truly appreciate the different ways an individual chooses to express themselves. So much so, that I've been working on a way to make this easier to do: http://www.groovethevibe.com
