Hierarchy of Awareness

Dear editors and translators:

The Russian team has now reached India. So now it's time for further guidelines. It's important that everyone go at his or her own pace. This translation project is not some olympiad. But since some of you have reached the promised land it's time to talk about deeper things.

Obviously by now you all have seen the need to think in terms of levels of awareness in your work.

By Two Short Stories the whole Universe is engaged at all times on all levels. In Harvest the present and the past is engaged often. By Two Short Stories the journey into the mandala is so deep that the future itself is seen. Reincarnation becomes Feed-forward. Let's all give James Joyce a hand. The Finn again wakes....
