      Default what IS the black foliage?

      i can't seem to figure out what black foliage represents.. this maybe the most succinct lyrics to try to figure out a meaning:

      "don't try to throw away the skies you keep in there
      try to throw away the disguise
      just below things are changing
      the sky is going to rain inside tonight
      try to throw away the flags of consciousness
      flow through the fields of time
      but when you pass the black foliage
      you can always change your mind
      "

      but can anyone ask the man himself, or have heard from someone in the band, what black foliage represents? i feel like i'd "get" the record a little more if i found this puzzle piece.

      edit: they also mention it in Outer Explorations, Pt 3 in the dream description soundclip.

      yea, i always thought it was some kind of unrealized subconscious areas of the mind, but i kind of wanted to play investigator and see what will/bill were thinking when writing the lyrics.

      aah! maybe black foliage is the questions you are seeking... so to seek the meaning of black foliage is to seek seeking!! AAHH!!

      yeah, i actually think that's pretty good advice. there was a mckenna talk i heard recently that said some things should be left uncomprehended, which i agreed with.

      black foliage=dark matter - somehow you know it's out there but have no idea what, or where, it is.

      i never understood why people always feel the need to look for fact, truth, explanation and reason in things... ambiguity is like the best thing ever.
