"We see a lot of people in here who claim they wanna know the ultimate truth about reality. They want to peer under the surface at the big everything. But this can be a very painful process full of surprises.

It can dismantle the world as you know it.

That's why most people prefer to remain on the surface of things. Maybe you should go home, let sleeping dogs lie. Take it easy. What do you say?" ~ Existential Detective, I Heart Huckabees

This mix from Pirate Satellite was greatly inspired by Canadian Peter Beamish, who spoon bendersaw The Matrix in 1999.

"It means buckle your seatbelt, Dorothy, because Kansas is goin' bye-bye." -Cypher

vibration"In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was Sound. So what you're looking at here is particles formed into patterns by sound. And they were all over the place to start with, just in random positions on the plate, and as soon as the sound appears they form into these patterns because everything is sound and it is sound that turns matter and energy into form.

All you're looking at here are interacting frequencies making a beat. If the sound changes, the matter changes, the energy changes. This is how the galaxies and the universe and the solar systems were formed and continue to be held in the structure they're in, through sound."
