"I don't know how to begin this. Your project took my breath
away. I got tears in my eyes as I found the treasures you have
given to all...." "Dylan--You are the Son of Waves....
You bring to us a wondrous gift, and you offer it in many ways.
I believe teaching involves stimulating all senses --at least
that is how I teach. You are the future for communicating to
others. You simply understand something most of us do not. And
you apply you knowledge with the talents God gave you in a magical
way. I am deeply moved by the soul and grace I feel in your project.
... You, my Son of Waves, will be the teacher for many people.
Not all of them will be able to understand what it is that you
have to offer. That is okay. You will be a planter of seeds,
and many of those seeds will grow into beautiful blooming masterpieces.For
those of us who can listen, your talents and the touch of a poet
that fills your soul offer many joyous experiences." Lynn,

"Vincant Van Gogh and Frida Kahlo were not alone in their
torment over heart-wrenching lovers. Their work, like Dylan Tauber's,
speaks of love, depression, and suffering in ways that feel altogether
genuine. "Dylan has pursued his vision quest with quixotic
verve. . .The beginning of Double Mirrors has the following warning:
"This CD-ROM contains the meaning of life." He is convinced
it will be a bestseller. "Dylan hopes to publish Project
Double Mirrors so that he can retire to Israel, where he will
meet his current imagined muse: The Ethiopian Woman. Israel also
holds his other muses: the dolphins of the Mediterranean Sea
("Dylan" in Welsh means "Son of Waves") and
the "visionary," a man named David who roams the beaches
of Tel Aviv and with whom Dylan felt a strong connection upon
their meeting. Each of the Israeli muses comprises its own "movie"
in Project Double Mirrors. "Sarah also has her own movie.
. . the phone message [Sarah left] fades in and out, as does
the slow [ambient music] A slide show of images fade to and from
the screen: an innocent, half smiling Sarah laying on her back
with head tilted to the viewer; a Saran wrapped Sarah applying
lipstick; a dressed Sarah putting on a fake pearl necklace that
Dylan loved; a nude Sarah clenching a sheet behind her as she
stands like the crucified Jesus ("Jesus," wrote Dylan.
"Only prettier."). There is a viciously-smiling Sarah
with her spiked heel lunged at the viewer's face; the heel inches
closer and closer to the front of the screen, towards the viewer.
And in the end, there is a Sarah with a cat's head.... "Dylan's
time with Sarah was an inspiration not only for his multimedia
project, but also for what he considered an individual spritual
evolution. For Dylan, Sarah embodied New York City. "I come
here and I feel like I get trampled on," he said. "This
is not a good place for spiritual people, it is a spiritual void.
I feel like a dolphin in a swimming pool." For him, the
cat's head on Sarah's body represented an encounter with deadness.
"I failed," he said- "I wanted to bring her deadness
to life.". .. He reclled a moment at a diner during which
Sarah provoked him to utter that lurking of all questions. "Would
you like to be my girlfriend?" Dylan said nothing instead.
Now, he speaks of Sarah in technical terms. She comprises just
350 megabytes of his seven gigabyte computer, a [single section]
in the world of experiences he since has had that comprise his
Project Double Mirrors CD ROM. "More important to Dylan
is his "vision quest," a pursuit to share the meaning
of life he realized through trips between New York and Israel
during the past four years: "But what I really want to wake
up every single person out there in this cave of ours who's been
victimized by the lies, fear, and hatred that saturate our society
. .. We must put an end to organized religions, oppressive governments,
and every other institution that spreads human suffering. But
more than that we must Love. Free love isnt some slogan from
the sixties. It is the only thing that wil keep humanity from
destroying itself." "Dylan has worked on the CD ROM
Project Double Mirrors since [October, 1995]. . . . But the past
few months have been like torture. For him, knowing the meaning
of life and having it all but fall on deaf, unwilling ears has
been unbearable. . . " Muse Magazine, May 1996

Dylan, Love your [project]. I too have discovered the beauty
of the Ethiopian woman and I too desire to marry one. I met my
first in College and have been hooked ever since. One day I hope
to visit Israel and experience the country and the Ethiopian
Loved it. This has been my favorite site for over a year now.
The Soundtrack is very very spectacular. I don't really even
consider your site a website; it's an experience...
I have downloaded the places in your Double Mirrors...it's a
neat place, Dylan. I have told my mother about you... she loves
you; thinks you are precious. She may be going to Jerusalem herself
someday soon, ...I know she wants to...she said she'd look for
you dancing on the beach in Tel Aviv! My mother is one of the
Rare ...in an organized "religion" yet has come to
the deepest meaning...Her own. She was sorry to hear that [they]
wanted to intellectualize your...theory...(pardon me)....she
said..."that's Columbia..." She has deep compassion
for your Plight...(our plight....- anyone's plight to chase to
the True Spirit)....a rare Christian indeed. "is he a prophet?"
she asked.... My mother knows the bible inside and out...about
the history..."factual" stuff... I myself do not...all
I know is what I have come to inherently...inately... "you
would know better than I", I told her, "but he speaks
a thread of Truth that is common to us all - if only all knew
it. Dylan's own sacred metaphor will ring a loud Truth to those
who could not relate to the metaphors before. He has tapped his
cap and is using all the Gifts that God gave him... to help others
recognize that path within that will lead them to what he has
found.... We each have our own unique way of expressing to others
the Spirit we have found...that is our unique gift from God...our
tools to get the message out. And Dylan is really using all of
his...." She said "Glory"
Hi. "WOW" is the only word I can find to describe your
doublemirrors site, the music is great, the pictures, the text,
I have seen many a site and none equals yours in my mind... I
share some of your feelings, about that we must show people what
they are doing to their world, their only world.. I like orcas
more, but I find looking them in the eye, either orca or dolphins
they see what most do not, and like some of you, allow you to
see as they do, with a clarity like nothing else.... I'm a student
(15 yrs old) finishing high school.. Maybe talk to you again soon..
