3. While in the Jungle I started thinking dark thoughts about exponential divergences vs. synchronicity and whether or not we really have the ability to control our own destines. I thought, if only there was some way to bring a balance of personal control and will over one's own life and humility for greater external powers and forces of nature into my work and my everyday practice of living, than that would truly be a project worth doing.

At the same time, back home in New York, though I did not yet know it, my life and will together were walking me into just such a situation.
