Report from SPS Meeting of Researchers (conducted online), April 17, 2020.

We have been approached by Santa Fe company/art collective Meow Wolf to help preserve and document written materials in conjunction with their House of Eternal Return in response to the Covid-19 Pandemic. The Founders Council has voted 4-1 in favor of the partnership, and we will be serving as "stewards" of the house.

Work will be conducted between now and when the exhibition will re-open (date unknown) to catalogue and digitize evidence.

Much discussion was had about Covid-19, its implications, and its connection to the periphery. Our top areas of inquiry have been identified as:

  1. Does Covid signal a larger energetic change in the world(s)?
  2. What will the aftermath of this pandemic look like? How do we rebuild in the spirit of periphery?
  3. Will the pandemic change dimensional frequencies? Might it open up new channels of communication? Or close them?
  4. If the parallel/forked universe theory is correct, are they experiencing a similar pandemic?
