Check out this music video of guitarist-yogi Stuart Davis. It's a song on the Dagon, a tribe in Africa which had traditional knowledge about the Sirius star-system, long before we even knew about Sirius B & C. It's also about the limitations of waking state derived knowledge and scientific materialism.

His live version on "16 Nudes" is the best version I've heard. You can buy them online at:

Other great tunes on the album are "I Need" and "Kid Mystic" where his uncle Steve tries to teach him to levitate...

Universe Communion

There was a star that was hidden in space - an undiscovered gem
until it's denizens decided they had chosen
the Dagon to give the gift to them
As with the shocking revelations,
of a primitive people our knowledge was redefined
Enlightened and wise, the simple African tribe
has educated the modern minds

Our potential was choked under the scientific yoke
Afraid that if we move and open our eyes, we'll have to realize


If a message from a distant sun can reach us
There is a magic that is waiting and is willing to teach us
how to suture every soul into one concentric whole
Earth will find a perfect union
in the universe communion

In this arena of Western thought, the spirit is in a vise
we are driven to seek but it's a futile pursuit
with the means that won't suffice

It is a science with a limited scope
where the heart and head collide
resigned to the laws of only tangible proof
to which the truth does not abide

We stifle and smother the mystic wonder
Is our arrogance a deafening fear of what we'll have to hear?


There's a tendency to think that it's our practical senses
that get these questions solved
but those are tenuous tools and the more we employ them, the slower
we evolve

Denied by our suppression the deeper lesson
