But what did the intelligence community want with the esoteric secrets of mystical holy warriors? The dreams intensified. Faces from the distant past began to appear right in our living room. A BBC program on the ancient Celts presented the reconstructed face of a two thousand-year-old ritual sacrifice, thought to be a real "Grail" warrior called "Lindow Man." And as I faced my own image on the TV screen, my family responded with shock at the resemblance.
It was the eight hundred year old man from our daughter's dream and Alissa confirmed it that day quite matter of factly. Afghanistan had been a profoundly difficult experience to weather, one that seemed to have had no purpose.
But thanks to Oliver Stone we had begun to find one and as we assembled Afghanistan the whole picture and my place in it began to emerge. Sometimes the images were frightening as I found myself projected into holographic settings that felt more than real.
But as time passed and the voices grew clearer, I came to realize the entire process was bringing me home, and that home was the home of my Geraldine ancestors.
For me personally, I had found the path through Afghanistan and
without knowing it, engaged a mythic quest. Afghanistan, the seat,
the home of the most ancient civilization had opened a door
into another dimension on the eve of the millennium and I had walked
through. The work we had done for Oliver Stone ultimately revealed
itself to be something far more than just a screenplay. It established
a validity to a mythic dimension that we believe is becoming more
and more important to us as our world reaches a vital crossroads.
There is nothing in the Voice that is either science fiction or fantasy. All of the technologies employed and their applications are already far from the drawing boards and affecting your lives in ways the waking public has yet to discover. Within a very short time, holography, biotechnology and telecommunications will change the idea of what we think we are, altering the very substance of matter itself. In fact Cyberspace has already changed the way we interact with the world and promises to draw us even deeper into other dimensions long before we even know where we're going
In 1181 Geraldus Cambrensis, Gerald de Barry of Wales withheld his knowledge of those other mythic dimensions because he feared those in power would seek to control it. Now, eight-hundred years later it is time for the knowledge of those mythic dimensions to be revealed and shared. The power to know is available to all of us.

We now invite you to share that Voice and dream with us of the new worlds that we know will soon emerge to waking vision; worlds where all of our voices; past, present and future can be joined in unequaled harmony.
