Adventures In Synchronicity

by Travis Mateer

Montauk excerpt

The above audio is me reading an excerpt from the second Montauk book, Adventures In Synchronicity, with some music I recorded in the background. I’m also reading The Invisibles by Grant Morrison.

I don’t discuss the metaphysical research I’m engaged in all that much on this blog, but I was at a wedding reception the other day when the topic of déjà vu came up. The person I was talking with described having so many experiences with it that she thought she might be going crazy.

Acting as a metaphysical physician, I prescribed a viewing of the movie Donnie Darko, then later suggested she check out Eric Wargo’s amazing work on dreams, precognition and the “long self”.

The people I’m reading and listening to posit patterns in the universe that we haven’t been taught to identify, or recognize as significant, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

Researching these topics challenges my assumptions of the world and expands my sense of what is possible for us, as humans in this material realm, to experience.

If you think we only have this one life and that death is the end of it, end-stop, fade-to-black, then you will be a MUCH EASIER creature to control because death, in that limiting scenario, is a tremendously fear-inducing concept.

I have left that fear-inducing concept behind because I don’t believe it is accurate from all I have read and listened to.

And, the other day, I wrote something down in my journal that feels, to me, more accurate. And it comes from watching Donnie Darko a few dozen times.

Now, this is my belief: death is a trampoline.
