Ever since the seventeenth century some of the best minds in mankind have been considerably haunted. Or to be more precise – firstly obsessed, then haunted and lastly, until recently – simply puzzled. All this being a slumber of tremendous success. Back then, at the dawn of classical mechanics as we call it now, the foundations of the monument for our then-seemingly unlimited insight into to the way that things were and would come to be – determinism – were laid. This was the triumph of rational mind for more than two centuries. With the revelations of both quantum mechanics and chaos theory however, the building of that knowledge seems to have been shaken to the depths if not collapsed entirely. This was all owing to the fact that our predictions came to be worth no more than gloomy guesswork. Now imagine you are a curious soul approaching the threshold of breakdown, feeling with your whole entity the inconsistency of what you know and what you see – perhaps the dictated absence of free will above all... What if you then set out on a quest to sort things out?.. No one can be sure if it is not the whole rational idea that you are about to give up. Could it be a hypothesis for things intrinsically beyond our comprehension? Or even a gnosis of things present from beyond existence itself? No one can really tell the irrational pathways you must to take, leading up to or beyond occult voids of mimicked knowledge. Maybe one has to. Yet maybe not. With the greatest of probabilities within, perhaps an answer will come to hand, just beyond the wall of stained glass? Instructing you that even in knowing less you know more? Welcome back to reality. But this voyage has had something more to it than just that, now hasn’t it?

η calling Traveler watching the fire that is dancing wildly in front of me does it have any score? does it feel its own throb? does it hear any melody? like the puppets in the puppet theater the flames wiggle in the hearth is then there any puppet master steering its swirl on someone’s behalf? watching and wondering if there’s a master of all the flames in this world of ever-recurring war-tides of spawning and bloodshed of ever-rising empires of waxing and waning and ruin but then lo! I felt someone in the deepest corner watching out of depth of shadows that gave him cover all of a sudden he arose, was he either blind or seeing further than a mortal soul. at [the very] last he spoke Propyllion as I see it is Knowledge that you seek and the Knowing I can feel it in your look so listen now… θ liturgy ι torpor Traveler I recall someone approach me that has no face no name in the torrid plains somewhere behind driving me insane vaporizing my consciousness away with its flame innate Propyllion have you seen the Essence? Creations and the Tools? have you touched the Ordained? The Meaning of the Orbs? the rules of Above and Below? The Message in the Word? Traveler if Change is born by Time, and Time by – by Cosmos… Propyllion … you began to see! Traveler if Cosmos – by Eternity, Eternity – by God… ∞ don’t let illusions take you up and wrap your eyes but up you go! for you are close enough!

'The Quantum Theory of Id’ album comprises 4 three-part story-developing songs and a separate intro. In its essence QTI is a metaphysical fairy-tale inspired by centuries of fight between the conceptions of determinism and indeterminism. The four pieces represent the journey of the Traveler who is both experiencing a personal drama and personalizing the crisis in the way the world is seen to be functioning. Names of the songs match the titles of existing books and writings that correspond to certain stages of the journey. Begining with the fall of determinism in pt.I, through the labirinths of pt.II ant temptations of pt.III, the salvation is reached in the last part with acknowledging that the reasons destroying determinism do not undermine the rational mind itself.
