I am currently working on publishing a 400 page book entitled Double Mirrors, a project I have been working on for the last 3 years, aimed at communicating an idea that came to me 4 years ago, when I was 18, the year of my Vision Quest, in Jerusalem, Israel, where I now live.
Wait a minute. . this isn't an obituary. . so let me try again (just a little rusty after writing one too many animated gifs): 3 years ago, I sat in my summer dorm room at Columbia University, and decided to write a book. In addition to sharing my experiences from the last 7 crazy years (from a yeshiva to a strip bar with ex-NIN babe), I decided that i was going to communicate my vision of Dolphin and Double Mirrors,a "theory" I consider to be the meaning of life.
In the past 3 years this Project has evolved from 20 pages of typos about picking up a girl at a sleazy techno club in NYC, to a full fledge Bruce Lee Kiup battle cry . . an infinite spiritual explosion in the name of Love/Truth that soon filled up an entire CD ROM. But this Manhattan project was multimedia in nature- a three prong attack featuring music, images, and an interactive book.
Today, the project continues in Jerusalem in the form of DoubleMirrors.com, continuing my philosophy of embracing digital technology, and using all the high technology necessary to communicate Double Mirrors. And if I can connect with other Jedi in the process and save/hack the planet. . that'd be cool too!
But even with all the high tech tricks and fancy gimmicks of CD ROM multimedia, web pages, and digital imaging, the printed word remains the bottom line. We bombed the shit out of Iraq with high tech jets and missiles, but when all the dust settled, it was time to send in the marines. Unfortunately, my ground war has been long postponed, and troop morale is down. All eyes are pointed upwards, following the gaze of the visionary, waiting for a miracle to jump start this revolution/evolution from Turtle (self) to Dolphin (Full Jedi). ..
So the 400 page book entitled Double Mirrors, a project I have been working on for the last 3 years, aimed at communicating an idea that came to me 4 years ago, when I was 18, the year of my Vision Quest, in Jerusalem, Israel, where I now live, remains unpublished, and until it is, this page will be kept to a minimum.
Why? Well.. .Due to unfortunate past experiences (someone trying to steal the idea)that Id rather not get into, I am forced to postpone uploading the majority of this text. With God's help, however, I will soon publish my book/CD ROM, and this spiritual constipation will be over. . .
Meanwhile, the war rages. . a three prong attack of book, CD ROM, and DoubleMirrors.com. .. gotta run time to destroy some demons.
Other text on DoubleMirrors.com:
letter I wrote to a literary agent I sent my manuscript to on December 30, 1996. She turned out to be a crook, but it was still significant- it was the first time I sent the book out. I have not yet sent it to anyone else.
To whom it may concern:
This book is part of a project I have been working on for over 2 years. It is an effort at communication that includes a CD-ROM, 400 photographs/digitally manipulated images, and my own music. I have been hesitant to contact any publishers / agents- you are the first. My one-way flight to Tel Aviv is tomorrow, and with God's help, my spiritual constipation is over!
Please visit my web site at: www.DoubleMirrors.com to get a sense of my art work. I will send you a copy of my CD ROM from Jerusalem. I can also send you a summary of Double Mirrors, an idea I believe to be the "meaning of life."
This book may make you laugh, it may make you cry, but if you allow it to enter your mind, I am sure you will be a link in the chain reaction that has already begun.
Welcome to my Manhattan Project!
