“For me there is only the traveling on paths
that have hear, on any path that may have
heart. There I travel, and the only worthwhile
challenge is to traverse its full length.
And there I travel looking, looking, breathlessly.”
—Don Juan, Yaqui Shaman
“The worlds of different peoples have different shapes. The very metaphysical presuppositions differ: space does not conform to Euclidean geometry, time does not form a continuous unidirectional flow, causation does not conform to Aristotelian logic, man is not differentiated from non-man or life from death, as in our [Western] world. We know something of the shape of these other worlds from the logic of native languages and from myths and ceremonies. . .”
