Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel. I am the hand that turns the wheel. I am Time, the Destroyer. I was the wind and the stars before this. Before planets. Before heaven and hell. And when all is done, I will be wind again, to blow this world as dust back into endless space. To me the coming and going of Man is as nothing.

Re: H.R. Giger

The Grof paper makes for really fine reading. I stumbled across it a couple of years ago and devoured it in short order. Good call on sharing it here; I can't believe I didn't think to do it myself.

Also of interest: Grof's very recent interview on Erik Davis's Expanding Mind podcast/radio show:

Quote
Facing the Darkside: A talk with famed psychedelic researcher Dr. Stanislav Grof about nightmare visions, birth trauma, and H.R. Giger's trains.

Re: H.R. Giger

The Swiss city of Chur, where H.R. Giger was born, named one square after him:

HR Giger bekommt in Chur einen Platz | Südostschweiz

Re: H.R. Giger

This is the definitive Giger resting place, in the Cimetière de Gruyères, Switzerland. So, if someone visits the H.R. Giger Museum and Bar there, they would also have the chance to pay respect to his memory.

Re: H.R. Giger

Some interesting H.R. Giger interview excerpts about David Lynch and Dune and why he did not work in the 1984 film adaptation:

Alien Explorations: Giger attempts to board Lynch's Dune
