Background

A description of the experience

Carlos Castaneda

The place where I stood was a corral formed by enormous boulders..... from among them came the most exquisite music.  It was a fluid, uninterrupted, eerie flow of sounds.  At the foot of one boulder I saw a man sitting on the ground his face turned almost in profile.  I approached him until I was perhaps 10 feet away; then he turned his head and looked at me. 

I stopped – his eyes were the water I had just seen! 

They had the same enormous volume, the sparkling of gold and black.  His head was pointed like a strawberry; his skin was green, dotted with innumerable warts.  Except for the pointed shape, his head was exactly like the surface of the peyote plant
