Lake Merrit Neighbors Organized for Peace:

 SFBC Biker Bulletin - 12.9.02

Supposedly the 2003 Burning Man theme has been leaked.
Beyond belief, beyond the dogmas, creeds, and metaphysical ideas of
religion, there exists immediate experience.  It is from this primal world
that living faith arises.  The intention of Beyond Belief is to explore this
realm.  In 2003 we will invite participants to create interactive rites,
ritual processions, elaborate images, shrines, icons and temples: visions of
realities profoundly other and far greater than our conscious selves. Our
theme will occupy that ambiguous territory that lies between reverence and
ridicule, faith and belief, the absurd and the dazzlingly sublime. The human
urge to make events, objects, actions and personalities sacred is protean.
It can fix on and inhabit anything.  This year we'll release that spirit to
discover what it means.
