The best way to know the self is feeling oneself at the moments of reckoning. The feeling of being alone, just with your senses, may lead you to think more consciously. More and more of such moments may sensitize ‘you towards you’, towards others. We become regular with introspection and retrospection. We get ‘the’ gradual connect to the higher self we may name Spirituality or God or just a Humane Conscious. We tend to get a rhythm again in life. We need to learn the art of being lonely in crowd while being part of the crowd. A multitude of loneliness in mosaic of relations! One needs to feel it severally, with conscience, before making it a way of life. One needs to live several such lonely moments. One needs to live severallyalone.

Steven Spielberg requested Orson Welles for an appointment.

Steven claimed to have solved the Rosebud riddle and wanted to share his finding (read discovery) personally with Welles.

Though unimpressed given the poor quality of understanding and research on Rosebud, Welles agreed to meet Steven given the latter’s commanding stature in world cinema and his proven mastery over the art of visual language, something that Welles was a sort of school of.

But….there was a catch.

Welles put a condition that Steven had to take the Stairway of Led Zeppelin only to reach Heaven.

Though never met or communicated, Steven had started getting some firsthand sense on what sort of a person Welles would have been during his trip to Earth that gave the world probably the best critically acclaimed movie ever made.

Though it was going to delay Steven's trip to Heaven and so his much awaited brainteaser meeting with Welles, he took it positively.

Steven had always been a fighter, ever since he produced his first work with a handheld camera in his early teens.

His spirit to reveal the answer to one of the least understood n most frustrating riddles, weaved from the thread of the visual language of cinema, to its inventor only got more refined with the pre-condition, another riddle his way he needed to find the answer of that would lead to the path taking him to Welles.

And Steven was there, right on the job, working on to find if the Led Zeppelin folks had really bought the Stairway to Heaven (through her).

The quest is on….as Extant it was….
