up there swinging are shamans from Guatemala and Vera Cruz who were
outside the Complex as we were entering. They're manifesting the ability
to surrender to fear on an enormous level. You could feel it in your
stomach as they came swinging by you. You don't do that if you're
not highly trained. It's a physical manifestation of who they are
as human beings: timeless, spiritual warriors. The guy on top who
swings them is standing on a pole which is about 14" in diameter
and he jumps up into the air to acknowledge the four directions. One
misstep and he's off. It sets the tone for the transition of going
from what you consider to be 2000 A.D. to literally another time.
And time is not what you think it is. Linear time, forget it."
