"Most of us have consigned to the unconscious all the fantastic physic associations that every object or idea possesses." – Carl Jung

The Meaning of Existence

To heed the call of experimentalism, Americans need guidance on how to prepare for the visual and verbal poetry of collective creativity. What we call civilized consciousness has steadily separated itself from the basic instincts. Modern man protects himself against seeing his own split state by a system of compartments. Certain areas of outer life are kept in separate drawers and are never confronted with one another. Yet in order to sustain himself, contemporary man pays the price in a remarkable lack of introspection. He is blind to the fact that, with all his rationality and efficiency, he is possessed by "powers" that are beyond his control.

Citizens Preparedness Guide to the Underworld
Grotto of the Unconscious Mind

The Experimental Party is preparing a vital handbook containing procedures and systematic stratagems for exploring the underworld - to unlock the door to the unconscious, and to give our nation hope and inspiration. The Citizens Preparedness Guide to the Underworld Grotto of the Unconscious Mind is a resource for all Americans, simple steps they can take to prepare themselves for the artist's call to make the re-ordering of the senses a part of our everyday existence. With careful attention, this common-sense advice could save lives by helping everyone to confront their dreams and explore their fantasies.

Mankind is now threatened by self-created and deadly dangers that are growing beyond our control. The Citizens Preparedness Guide explains how to prepare and how to respond to our complex world. For in the 21st century, many of us now understand that moral and mental means need to be more efficient, since they could provide us with psychic immunity against the ever-increasing infection of modern times. If we could see or shadow the dark side of our nature, we should be immune to any mental infection and insinuation. A sense of a wider meaning to one's existence is what raises many beyond mere getting and spending, for if we lack this sense, we are lost and miserable.
