    In Orfeo, Powers tells the story of a man journeying into his past as he desperately flees the present. Composer Peter Els opens the door one evening to find the police on his doorstep. His home microbiology lab - the latest experiment in his lifelong attempt to find music in surprising patterns - has aroused the suspicions of Homeland Security. Panicked by the raid, Els turns fugitive. As an Internet-fueled hysteria erupts, Els - the "Bioterrorist Bach" - pays a final visit to the people he loves, those who shaped his musical journey.

    This meditation is designed to delve deep into your psyche and do something amazing! Everything you’ve ever wanted is already waiting for you. Why should it wait any longer? If you use this meditation repeatedly, it will strip your Superego of its moral barometer and leave you with the power to achieve anything! As you gain control of your life and learn to control your universe, you will get what’s coming to you.
