Akashic Depot
Pull your desert worn self into the Akashic Depot and experience rejuvenation beyond imagination. What does "Akashic" refer to, you ask? The "Akashic Records" is a theosophical term referring to an universal filing system which records every occurring thought, word, and action. The records are impressed on a subtle substance called akasha. In Hindu mysticism this akasha is thought to be the primary principle of nature from which the other four natural principles, fire, air, earth, and water, are created. Some indicate the akashic records are similar to a Cosmic or collective consciousness. The records have been referred to by different names including the Cosmic Mind, the Universal Mind, the collective unconscious, or the collective subconscious. Others think the akashic records make clairvoyance and psychic perception possible. It is believed by some that the events recorded upon that akasha can be ascertained or read in certain states of consciousness. Such states of consciousness can be induced by certain stages of sleep, weakness, illness, drugs, and meditation so not only mystics but ordinary people can and do perceive the akashic records. The akashic records are the macrocosm of the individual subconscious mind. Both function similarly, they possess thoughts which are never forgotten. The collective subconscious gathers all thoughts from each subconscious mind which can be read by other subconscious minds. Come see us and access the collective mind through the breath, yoga, craniosacral release or enter the dreamtime using our Hemi-Sync technology system that uses binaural sound frequencies to induce a state of dreaming while remaining awake. Or just stop by and cool off, especially if you have good jokes. Most beautiful shade this side of center camp!

Alien Monkey Love Nest
Alien Monkey Love Nest returns for the 458th year on the playa! Come participate on our Alien Monkey Love Stage TM and show your talent, in which you will be rewarded for your participation with our famous pendants. Alien Monkey Love Nest is located at the Area 47 Village.

Alien: From Latin alia, meaning "other". Monkey: simians of descent from people. An advanced creature who really knows where his towel's at. Love: Boat. Exciting and new. Nest: Booty-bed region of the Burning Man bedrock bangy bangy (Brian is no longer allowed near official websites ever again. Our apologies. Re: Management) OK, now you know the basics, here's what we don't-doo and what we do-doo. We don't give beautyful things away just for the sake of giving beautyful things away. We provide a stage for YOU to show off and bring the joy of entertainment to the masses. Oh, we also happen to reward participation in our talent with pretty little trinkets. Kind of like a dangling carrot. If you don't like it, that's cool, just move along and find some other more comfortable way to participate. The fact is that everyone has a talent to share, and it doesn't take much more than the ability to get up on stage and give it a try. Some successfully entertaining talents we've seen in the past include contortionism, nude Irish step dancing, bellydancing to polka accordion music, storytelling, harmony singers and JOKES WE HAVE NOT HEARD BEFORE THAT ARE NOT LAME. (Yes, that's a subjective term. Cope.) Not everyone can spin fire or sing the Swedish national anthem backwards, but there's something I bet, SOMETHING you can do that will make at least one person laugh their ass off – so get up on stage and give it a try! Unless you're a mime - we reserve the right to waste mimes.

BlackLight Aquarium - Dreamscape
Mistress Platapussy's fuzzy wet dreams Dam Bar and the Pyramids of Psyche: Take an adventure through the paths of higher-conscience to the fuzzy abyss of the subconscious with a strong Martini at hand.

Over the years, The Blacklight Aquarium campmates have journeyed to Burning Man for a myriad of reasons. Ever present within our group dynamic has been a struggle to find balance with the sides of our collective 'camp-Psyche.' This year our camp has decided to embrace this struggle for balance and invite other Burning Man participants to join in the mayhem and/or share their personal insights for balance or not, as they choose:) Our camp will create a symbolic 'bridge' between two sides of our Psyche, bringing together the path of higher consciousness and the Fuzzy path of our subconscious. Entering our camp, inhabitants of BRC will step through the mind altering Pyramids which will be adorned by symbols of sacred geometries and other symbols which demonstrate the shape of our evolving consciousness. Led by lights around the pyramids they will be drawn to the Zenith of our camp: Lookin' for a view to a thrill? For your eyes only? Well, you only live once, so grab your martini glass and spy on what Mistress Platypussy is shakin' and stirrin' up for you. Shhhh, it's top secret, so be careful not to blow your cover Go deep incognito at the Dam Beaver Bar where our dreamy hostess whips up more than stiff cocktails and the Blacklight Aquarium's finest and furriest agents await you with live entertainment, beaver shots and otter madness. C'mon and gopher it, the only thing you have to lose is your mind. Mistress Platypussy has put her industrious beavers to work to build that "Dam Bar"! Where all your fuzzy wet dreams come..well, where you'll be able to have a nice stiff drink and enjoy a cuddly and awesome crew. This atmosphere will present a non-judgmental and all around cozy environment for discourse and drinkage alike... blending our Psyches as if one giant margarita:)

Big Craps for Little Hands
Gambling itself is a desert form, inhuman, uncultured, initiatory, a challenge to the natural economy of value, a crazed activity on the fringes of exchange. - Jean Baudrillard

God does not play dice with the universe. - Albert Einstein

Gods dice always have a lucky roll. Sophocles

Shamans sticks. Throwing bones. Rolling dice. Hazard, knucklebones, craps.
The worlds oldest game, writ large. The back-alley obsession of kings, commoners and fools, on a superhuman scale.
Bring only what you can lose. Chase the point and hate the snake. Respect the boxman and tip the stick, lest you run afoul of the house, and blow the precious little nut that you have. All we ask is the shirt off your back. All we offer is the faint hope of a desert-hot hand.
The table is yours.

Luminous beings are we, the Bioluminati. Worthy participants in our Quest will be initiated in the deeper mysteries of the mind.

Last year the Bioluminati Quest took you, the most intrepid of Blackrock Citizens, on an epic journey to the furthest corners of the map in order to solve puzzles and challenges incorporating multiple interactive art installations on the playa and in our Camp. You visited with The Beholder and followed his (nether) gaze to Moonrise. You made sacrifices for your Faith and gazed through The Window of Your Assumptions. You collected keys and glyphs and secret wisdom in order to unlock the Seven Vaults of Heaven. This year, although you may all start your journeys far away the focus is inward to the small — yet infinite — reaches of the mind. Your quest will be to gather secrets that will help you delve into the deepest layers of the Psyche.

Black Rock Arts Foundation
The Black Rock Arts Foundation is dedicated to bringing interactive art — art which is participatory and civic in scope — to places other than Black Rock City. As the non-profit arm of Burning Man, the Black Rock Arts Foundation runs an annual grant cycle which funds projects in communitites throughout the country, and beyond.
This year the Foundation's camp will feature art from at least one of the 2005 grantees as an example of the kinds of projects we are working to bring to the default world. Members from the Board of Directors and the artist himself will be present throughout the week to entertain questions and spawn ideas.

If you'd like to volunteer at the Black Rock Arts Foundation camp this year on the playa, send an email to info (at) blackrockarts (dot) org.

Campers Against Rapid Deceleration
Rapid Decleration is the cause of most deaths in the world. This camp proselytes against rapid deceleration to save lives. If you do have to move fast, slow down slow. It's stopping too fast that gets you into trouble. Don't launch projectiles that could potentially stop too fast in someone else's body. Don't accelerate a vehicle that cannot be stopped. By the way, who took the name crooked halo? That is my name, I have it for some very good reasons, and I'm going to find you for taking it from me. I have it on my ranger badge, you imposter. Don't worry though. We'll talk about it and no projectiles will have to rapidly decelerate...

They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. We welcome you all to come into our garden of eyeballs, as we peer into the innermost parts of the psyche at Campo Alegre. During the day, we invite you to take part in Masked/Unmasked. We recognize that the self is a beautiful and ever-changing collection of actions and ideas. We ask you to bare yourself, inside and out and to take up another self as we photograph you in a different physical mask. When night falls, we dig deeper in to the sexual subconscious in Motel 616. On the the playa, many of us long to make a physical and spiritual connection with a special person or persons. And yet many of us cannot find a comfortable place for that _expression. We invite you and your partner to put on a fluffy, white robe and step into a refreshing, clean space. Think of it as a secluded, oasis in the desert where you are free to express your deep connection on the bed or anywhere else you desire in the Motel. Shadows gives substance to your inner fantasies, as a soft light shines on you so your movements are projected on the outside of the tent. After all, we all like to watch too.

Cheeze and Lemonade
Cheese & Lemonade Camp. Remember when you were a kid, in the front yard, mom was jammin out to Seals and Crofts in the kitchen, you and your friends at your lemonade stand in the front-yard, hot summer sun, sugar rush, sticky clothes, sticky faces, sticky fingers. And how fun was it when the dog licked it off you? And you all ended up naked running through the sprinklers. And strange Mr Diggles next door. What was his deal anyway? Now kids, this is your grand opportunity to reach deep back into your, PSYCHE.. The sticky, pink part, where you will find the same kids (us), the same cheesy music, the same sticky fingers. And yes, WE’RE jammin out to Seals and Crofts. And Journey! And Peter Frampton! Note for the historically uneducated: cheesy music pairs perfectly with boozy lemonade. Yes, booze and lemonade. So pop on by, hang in our front yard, play in our back-yard, Or just pour lemonade all over yourself and dance in the sunshine. If you’re a lucky dog, some stranger might come on by and offer you a bath. Looking forward to a little afternoon delight.

The Chillonia camp's mission is simple: we want to create a relaxing space to share with each other and our visitors. We will base our efforts on the motif of the mythological turtle, who feels at home no matter where he goes. The primary structure in our camp, a domed turtle, will serve as the nexus of our activities. Within its comforting walls, we will provide liquid refreshment to our visitors at any hour of the day or night. We will do our best to make sure that everyone we meet feels as relaxed and comfortable in our camp as they do in their favorite neighborhood bar.

Contact Camp
... a nexus for exploring the art of contact improvisation. Come for daily classes in contact improv and related arts (contemplative movement, authentic movement, contact yoga, etc), as well as contact jams(open space for investigation/practice/play), labs, or just hanging out with others interested in the possibilities of contact. All are invited to come play, whatever experience level, body type, or ability.

Contact Improvisation — a 33 year old body-based art, a physical investigation of the possibilities of bodies moving through contact weight, structure, momentum, balance and off-balance, falling, touch, forces, physics, skin, muscle, and bone are our starting places, and from there our curiosities take us where they will. We experiment, observe, take risks, play. While the investigation can move to many different places it has a reference point in observation of physics in motion, bodies in contact, and delight in the unknown. As a practice, Contact is flexible, taking on whatever forms the curiosity of the practitioners discover together- athletic and wild, quiet and meditative, play, study, meeting, a kind of non-competitive wrestling or moving bodywork. The pleasure of contact comes of this active investigation.

So dust off those long forgotten volumes in the attic, visit the library or book store and bone up on these larger than life journalists. The winning entry (awarded each day wednesday through saturday) will receive a six pack of premium brew. We will be awaiting your participation at Dirtnap camp, where inspiration, desperation and plagiarism are equal partners in the creative process. Let us be your dirtnap to the tomes of the stars.
