...and here we come to The Landscape itself. The cultures of the world have been connected by the Information Age, changing the very landscape of the collective unconscious itself... merging and blending them... until they've become "grey". But the landscape hasn't changed. The only thing that's changed is how we "view" it... and how we view the creature-archetypes that live on this landscape... and that live within us. Musically, this is a fusion of Eastern instrumentation with electro synths and bass-lines... all atop crashing dance beats.

The human consciousness is finite. The collective unconsciousness is finite, yet unbounded. On the thoughts of a single person, it's gonna be rocky, it's gonna be tumultuous, it's gonna be volcanoes spewing lava... terrible, terrible, terrible... not a very nice place to habitat. If you blend three people together, and if you create a culture where ideas are common--where themes are shared, despite the living or the passing of even the most despicable human--then you're going to have what can only be described as a "landscape". Our goddess worship, or god worship, our deities, our trickster gods, our kings, our queens, our jokers. They create this beautiful, beautiful, beautiful rocky landscape of our shared culture--our shared worldwide culture--and it's timeless. It has no time! The only time that it has is measured by when one of its constituents comes or passes away. Consider these anomalies, and where they're coming from, and how truly psycho-social they are. If something from "beyond" tries to get our attention, it's not gonna feel pleasant... at all, in any way, whatsoever. Say there is some creature living on this landscape, and if it needed to be fed, well what the fuck do you think it's gonna eat? It's gonna eat... whatever it can.
