Taking this revelation as his starting point, Lang shows how the vision of nothingness-the Desert-turned his life upside down. In image-rich language, he draws the reader into the Alice-in-Wonderland world of 'the given.' You will see buildings and trees that move, a man who expands and shrinks like a balloon, and a room built around a black hole. You will witness scenes of joy, wonder, confusion, and despair. And you will find the Flower, that mysterious and profound destination which adds everything-and nothing-to the vision of the Desert.
In the appendix, Lang gives explicit directions so that you can experience the book's key insights yourself.
