Nexians, how cool is this story?

In 1990, Bill Witherspoon and his small team of dedicated Shree Yantra devotees (my interpretation of who the team members were, but I like that ring, Shri Yantra devotees :-) designed this beautiful piece of art (a quarter mile carving!! thats 0,4km !!). It was first spotted by National Guards doing reconnaissance photos taken over the Oregon Desert. The carving was geometrically perfect (extremely hard to do just by hand drawing, even computers algorithms never get it close to perfect, as you can see above just writing the pronunciation is tricky) and it appeared overnight in a dry lake bed.

There's a documentary of this amazing man's journey (the interview itself was very good, link below)

The documentary is called Sri Yantra: The Oregon Desert Mystery. . If anyone has a copy of this doccie, I would greatly appreciate the share.

What amazed me about this story is that Bill Witherspoon, said he wanted to feel what it would be like to be in the bindu (the centre) of the Shri Yantra, and he spoke about it in a very beautiful way, about creating resonant spaces. The Shri Yantra, is also known as the flower of life. Terence Mckenna calls it the chrysanthemum. The glass ceiling or "dome" most people have difficulty breaking through on smoalked dmt.

The Sri Yantra is an amazing symbol of profound significance for all true psychonauts. Dmt'esque motifs are even apparent on high doses of psilocybin and even mescaline (from my personal experience)

There is much more to tell of this tale. But for now I will leave you with link above for the interview to whet your appetite.

If you have a minute, please can you reply to the the Poll attached to this post

peace and light,
