The ‘A’ is a pictogram of the human pine-A-L gland, a cone, the Cone of Con-sci-ousness. ‘SCI’ means ‘to know’. The ‘L’ is the upper-right quadran-T of a cross used to organize spatial relationships inside one’s pineal. Together they form the ‘AL/LA’ morpheme. A ‘morpheme’ is defined as “the smallest unit of letters that have intrinsic meaning.” ‘Intrinsic’ means ‘within’. The ‘mean’ of mean-ing, in Mathematics, means ‘middle’, and middle has no meaning without a set of coordinates, hence, the ‘T’ of AL-T-er-ed and altar, an in-T-er-section of vertical and horizontal coordinates.

UL-T-i-mate-ly, psychologically, we are archetypally crucified on a cross made of light inside our own mind, inside our pineal gland, in the Metaphysicians’ “Seat of the Soul.” The ‘A’ and the ‘L’ of the ‘AL’ morpheme are pictograms of THE Compass and Square, “instruments of measurement… belonging to a carpenter.” Got wood?
The shape of the words ALTERED STATE are in the form of a vesica piscis, ‘the bladder of a fish’. It is the intersection, and Child, of two circles. In the background is the Universal Symbol of Medicine, the Caduceus, a Wizard’s winged wand entwined by two serpents. 2020 is the year, and 20/20 is our vision. The font is collegiate. Green is the color of in-it-i-ate[tion] and white is the color of the Sacred Masculine, of purity, of surrender.
