I receive and execute. I am totally unaware of the meaning of the whisper. As I notate I listen and hear the room. I make an aural connection between the whisper and the notation. I do though not comprehend the whisper as a structured narrative though there as the indication that there is more than meets the eye and ear.

When I am awake I want to enter hidden spaces and rooms, my feets can not bring me to. And even smart scientist are unable to enter these spaces completely.
Maybe there are spaces that we can never fully access, but I am really interested in seeking ways to enter these rooms.
When I fall asleep the adventure begins. In the dream world I can enter any space I like. It can bring me to totally new areas.
