These strange experiences people have, no matter what you want to label or catagorize them as, are real in some way. They have been reported throughout history and across cultures. If nothing else, they are a very Human experience. None of the theories we have may even come close to divining what we are actually experiencing, if they did, we would have some answers. We do not know what Reality is, what life or death are, or truly why we are here. We do know that our senses filter much out, and our memories do not work like we think they do. New approaches are needed if we are ever to make any progress at all in understanding what we are interacting with. Some of that comes from understanding ourselves, and some of that comes from having a truly open mind in confronting those things that defy explanation. We need new eyes, perspectives, and better questions. That is the goal of Where Did the Road Go? To go places that have not been tread before, and explore new things from new angles.

David and I talk about a lot in this interview. We talk about music and its effects on the brain. We talk about perceptions, media, preferences, bi-aural compositions, and more. Then we get into the paranormal, and discuss ghosts, UFO's, consciousness, reality, and liminality. This goes all over the place, gets pretty deep and subtle at times, and makes some strange connections.
