END AD Have a nice day --42-- Note: the SELF - SAME symbol for Plutons Rising is: PlR^'s ^ that's a lower-case "L"; btw. Noetic note: The figure of the shaman is closely associated with madness. When an initiate becomes a shaman by Eliade’s first method (spontaneous vocation), he “takes the risk of being mistaken for a ‘madman’”. [Eliade, P. 80] The behaviour of someone chosen in this way becomes more and more strange. Such a person “seeks solitude, becomes a dreamer, loves to wander in woods or desert places, has visions, sings in his sleep, etc.” [Eliade, P. 75 – as quoted in Silvester] Nichte var? game-schticker? - Richard/Hans end Noetic note. It is an emersive V/R env that is (hopefully) condusive to learning.
