The Everywhen


"In the Everywhen (so thousands of cultures have taught) human wayfinders can travel freely through all time and space, gathering information, communicating with far-distant people and other creatures, previewing future experiences, and learning essential information for navigating through life. Perhaps this universal belief in a metaphysical world is evidence of something real, though it could be simply a manifestation of the enormous potential of the human brain. After all, neurologists tell us that there are more potential neuron connections in your brain than there are atoms in the universe. Whatever it is, the Everywhen is worth visiting."
-Martha Beck, Finding Your Way in a Wild New World
