        I do not see a link to the video or conversation of this interview in this topic. My search didn't find any other. I assume I didn't search well enough but I find it important to at least post this link to the 1969 interview just in case we missed it somehow.

        I would like to be corrected.
        "... the mystery of life isn't a problem to solve but a reality to experience."

        “There is no escape—we pay for the violence of our ancestors.”

        Sandrider: "Keith went to Bobo's for a weekend of drinking, watched some DVDs,
        and wrote a Dune Novel."
