      Thanks, Bob. Very cool
      information about Gurdjieff.
      That has been a suspicion
      of mine for some time, that
      a fine line separates the
      "insane" from the "enlightened"
      and wonder about crossovers -
      including my own wanderings.

      One Love,

      Jeff
