01. All you are going to want to do is get back there
02. Moments of sufficient lucidity
03. The great hidden sea of the unconscious
04. Libet’s delay
05. I feel as if I might be vanishing
06. An empty bliss beyond this World
07. Bedded deep in long term memory
08. A relationship with the sublime
09. Mental caverns without Sunshine
10. Pared back to the minimal
11. Mental caverns without Sunshine
12. An empty bliss beyond this World
13. Tiny gradiations of loss
14. Camaraderie at arms length
15. The sublime is disappointingly elusive
