"The border between the Real and the Unreal is not fixed, but just marks the last place where rival gangs of shamans fought each other to a standstill."- Robert Anton Wilson

The monograph on Wölfli written in 1921 by his psychiatrist, Dr Walter Morgenthaler, enthralled Rilke, who saw in Wölfli the antithesis between creativity and ‘the total collapse within a human being’.

“If the imagination runs riot in the dimension of the mundane it's paranoia.”

Don't take it personally, my friend,
It's not your fins or tail we scorn,
and not your cage or other bones,
but knowing we can't go alone.

It terrifies and sends us out
to here upon the myriad waves
that mount their own affairs on us.

And now we chase you round and round
in admiration, lust and fright,
to pick apart your memories
and learn from you to thrive in night.

"This is a mad and wild adventure at the fractal edge of life and death and space and time.
Just where we love to be, right, shipmates?"

We seem to form a nested set,
With each the last one's marionette,
Who if you asked him, would insist
That he's the last ventriloquist.

-Theodore Melnechuk
