We’ll start with those ideas that generated fundamental mind shifts in Richard’s life and art and introduce more as we find and edit them into intelligible English. Some of these ideas have been shared in the past, like the revelation of “The Nutritional Mystery” (truth that feeds our spirits/Arts and makes us stronger, more creative and healthy). It was inspired by an idea tossed off by Karen Armstrong in her fantastic A History Of God. For those that don’t know, Karen Armstrong is one of the most important – and useful (nutritional) writers about the higher dimension alive today.

Various Nervous Buildups could be seen as the details of the sea change revelations like The Nutritional Mystery or The Kingdom Of Heaven.
