“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Jeffrey Kripal

You are interested in mysticism? You should seriously investigate the work of my friend Jeff Kripal. He's just published a beautiful and amazing book on comics and mysticism, which is incredibly richly illustrated.

And he runs GEM here at Rice, which stands for Gnosticism, Esotericism, Mysticism.
