It was an inside job. He’s hard to keep under control…
Just drawn up today, too!
Oh well, now the plan is ‘OUT’ , I’d better tell all: Karen is continuing to continue to lease and run cafe Eutopia (www.Eutopia.co.nz - the organic cafe business). After all, until such time as I or my ilk should buy it. However I still want to do an ‘experience economy makeover’ of the place, as it may be the best- certainly the most fun and meaningful – way to monetise the dream, allowing me to finish the building.
However, Karen is unlikely to relinquish control of the Tent area, where I was thinking to make the Labyrinth. So today I drew up a plan for a relatively simple structure at the back of the cafe. a second, ‘esoteric’ dining area, for the pilgrims of Love Beauty Truth and Freedom. (I KNOW they’re out there – they write something in the visitor’s book almost every day!)
What think ye? I will attempt a ‘Qorflow’ funding of this, if private investors not forthcoming (??:) The economics of it are simple: they pay $2-$5 at the door for the magical transformative experience that awaits them within. There will be coloured light, as in every self-respecting cathedral, in this case coded according to the symbolism of Blue = Love and listening, Green = Beauty, Novelty, Yellow = Truth, logic strategy; Red = Freedom (directed powerful expression of the strategy)
The main idea of the different tables is they can either move though them in turn or go to the colour/zone that attracts them most, there to mingle with others of like mind, with the instructions (in the free handbook that comes with the entry fee) to share and communicate as pilgrims ought. And to play the game of qor at the tables, which will all have the layout on them in full colour…
Or if they want to be intense alone, they sit in the smaller tables which surround the main one for each zone. Note the wrap-around seating for these ones.
I have studied humans for 13 years now at the cafe and elsewhere, and i’ve been alarmed at their opaqueness to anything perceived as ‘abstract’ – i generalise here of course! – but encouraged at the unforeseen power of a walk-through, architecturally expressed concept. the courtyard of the cafe is such an environment

- AND the power of Story to get concepts past the anti-conceptual filters (as with apples of aeden - see the Free ebook version of volume one here and see what i mean… http://www.smashwords.com/books/search?query=girl+and+the+guardian there’s lots of labyrinth action in this epic, and the philosophy is interwoven with the whole world of aeden and the Order of the Makers…
So, after a few too many blank stares about the Game of Qor,
(see http://www.qor.co.nz for news pictures and theory on this game.) I came to think the only way to get through is to build it big enough for people to ‘get’ it by going THROUGH it. By acting it out, if you like. As they go from room to room they will feel the power of each of the four modes (and in the purple Centre they feel the stabilising power of the Balance, the status quo of life). They will also get the dynamic function of each mode by talking as per instructions ONLY love in the Blue zone, ONLY possibility in the Green zone, ONLY comparison and evaluation in the Yellow, and ONLY action and tactics in the Red.
Powerful? Yes, I believe it will be transformational for many people. And it is non-sectarian, no revelations need be bought into, just common sense about the way the universe seems to unfold.
The completion of the vision of 13 years ago is approaching. Want to be part of the Labyrinth of Qor? Would you pay $5 to experience it and come away with a passport to Qor as well?
Oh yes, here’s the drawing placed on the latest concept map of Eutopia and Dreamspace:
