Journey to Mount Analogue
You are about to commence a journey beyond the bounds of possibility, a climb to where realities don’t come by divine revelation. You will venture into the unknown. You will perform all kinds of experiments in order to see. You must become human before seeking transfiguration. — M.A.A.F. (Mount Analogue Ascenders Foundation)
An expanded edition of the 1959 novel Mount Analogue: A Novel of Symbolically Authentic Non-Euclidean Adventures in Mountain Climbing by French spiritual para-surrealist writer and poet René Daumal. This edition introduces new layers and levels of adventure to Daumal's posthumously published allegorical tale. Readers are challenged to undergo Daumal’s unfinished quest while maneuvering through the Rotherhithe Picture Library’s stacks and Wikipedia articles organized by elevation from the Earth’s inner core to its outer summits.
