This is the end? [Morrison] I've never read about the philosophy of the Sublime -- thanx, that was fascinating and intuitively obvious. Does your series ends here? There must be more coming after this. So I read the "Eating the Shadow" section as an ending for your sequence of: rejection --> inversion (black magic) --> incorporation (eating the shadow) But there you tell us: "I will describe other methods that can be used by anyone. " But you don't. And in your footnote on that page you say "Eventually I'll answer that in a follow-up post." So I look forward to those specific, concrete, non-Buddhist transformation processes which may contain more specific, concrete black magic stuff too -- or are they the same? Last question: As I am a rather literary dullard, I think reading your essays before reading your novel will help me to get the most out of your novel. Great essays, thank you. Is your novel done?
