"The motion of the visuals and the might of the music fuse into one coherent artistic and - in a way - philosophical, hands-on
experience... hypnotically pulling my eyes together at the nose-tip, lifting my sense of perception and conscience like a kitten is lifted
by his neck, blasting these immense universal plains in front of me, inside me, rippling with plasma energy and forceful peace."
