In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"It was crazy. Absolutely crazy. On Monday, I read in the paper of a mystic named Namaste, who lived alone atop Mt. Shasta in Northern California. On Tuesday, I told my boss that I needed an emergency leave of absence. On Wednesday, I was sitting in a tiny hotel room in Weed, California - five miles west of Mt. Shasta - wondering, most seriously, if I had lost my mind."
