"From 1859 to 1884, and since, Sivartha issued a large number of monographs upon the subjects of his discoveries. Thousands of copies of these were sent out over the world and became the basis of much of the radical thought of the age."
COSMIC PICTURE GALLERY
The plane familiar to us is called the physical plane; it is related to our physical senses. These senses are limited in their scope; they give us a partial view of nature. While they are commonly regarded as our means of communication with nature, it is also possible to regard them as windows which only allow us to see a small part of nature and shut us out from the rest. From the reports received from these senses we have constructed an imaginary picture of the universe: put in technical language, we have a set of concepts derived from our percepts. If we have other senses, more subtle ones, and these should come into play while our former senses became inactive, we should get quite another picture of the universe. Things which we have taken for granted because we are so familiar with them, and which we have assumed to be universal and invariable, would be seen to be peculiar to the physical plane, to our physical consciousness, and not necessarily appropriate to other planes. Notions of space and time, magnitude and position, and density and force might be entirely different. We should have left the physical plane; we should be on the astral plane, in the astral light.

and mentioned that an Austraillan record label he was working with is going to finally re-issue a record of Brother Theodore’s work. HERE is a wonderful video of late Brother Theodore (which may be a part of a soon to be released documentary).
Brother Theodore reminded me of Jim Roche. While Roche was a faculty member during my time at Florida State, he was on sabattical the entire time. In 1982 the Morgan Art Gallery in Kansas produced an LP of Roche’s sound recordings. The LP, Learning to Count, consist enitirely of Roche’s unaccompanied voice channeling a multitude of personalities found in the South. According to the words of someone else, “In the 1970s, Jim Roche, a performance artist from the deep South, made his way into the New York artworld and began doing pieces in galleries where he'd go into a trance-like state and channel redneck characters from his home turf”. Roche,in addition to being included in a 70"s Whitney Biennial, made cameos in several of his friend Jonathan Demme's films, including Something Wild, Married to the Mob, Philadelphia,and Silence of the Lambs.
Then there is the work of Francis P Dec. In 1985 L.A. talk show host "Doc on the ROQ” made voice recordings of the written rants sent in by Francis E. Dec Esq., of 29 Maple Ave, Hempstead, New York.
