I love reading stuff like that.
I couldn't but help notice that he was operating in the 'translation' mode as he described 'vertical transformation'.
I guess that's inevitable, and fully forgivable - the act of codifying cuts us off from the transformative (vertically) into spiritually transformative states - 'meta-self' or 'meta-codified'. They elude words, including mine
But, wasn't it a really really interesting piece
