No huge thanklist this time, there would be too many people to be mentioned here and there are only 8 pages to fill on this booklet. But we know who you are, and you know who we are so there's no greater value in putting this out on a 'list', is there?

HYPNOS 69 - The Eclectic Measure
"The Eclectic Measure" is based on Carl Jung's "The Seven Sermons to the Dead" The Seven Sermons deal with the self as the androgynous being Abraxas, with the message that self-knowledge may be attained by the conscious assimilation of the contents of the subconscious, in order to achieve unity. It's about the search in life so many people subconsciously feel they have to do, but don't know where or how to start with. It's far from easy to step away from a certain 'lifestyle' and rearrange everything you've been doing and thinking since you've been born. The very first rule; such as in art is you have to 'destroy in order to create'. "The Eclectic Measure" is about opposites, poles, equilibrium, the sun and the moon, good and evil, destroy and create, ... When you've walked the path of subconsciousness and counted all the stones on your way you'll find what you've been looking for. Abraxas is in all of us.
