Joni Mitchell, Los Angeles, 1975
Steve called me and asked me to come and have lunch with him. I was in LA so I jumped on a plane and met him at a restaurant is Cupertino. He just wanted to chat, nothing specific, but in the course of our conversation he tells me that he has a sense that there is a place that you can go to where you can put causes and effects together and "drop them in". For me it was a skin crawling moment. I was currently working on a form of meditation for accessing the CAUSAL PLANE where one can go and literally connect causes and effects and drop them into physical manifestation. Somehow, Steve could do this naturally and spontaneously. Perhaps this was the secret of his visionary ability to conceive of ideas that manifest in the future.
New York 1970.
