Randall Carlson rebuilds a lost timeline to illustrate how we might have developed and lost many civilizations in the past. He pitches the idea that the processional Great Year represented by the Zodiac may have been used as a clock to track and record reoccurring patterns of natural disasters. Over the course of the last […]
Beowolf was written at a crossroads between ages. The characters in the poem straddle both pagan and christian values and struggle with their inconsistencies.

When I discovered MEOWWOLF, it felt like someone had tunneled into my mind and stolen my visions and dreams. The Atrium is a fully realized version of what I’m researching and exploring right now. Mixed Reality experiences offer so much opportunity for squad and family bonding. We have so many independent experiences offered to us […]
