Koolik / The Importance of Passion as a Foundation
How passion plays a roll in advancing your life and career
Some years ago, in a fantastical woodland forest, the love child of a centaur & unicorn shed its tears upon freshly grown psilocybin mushrooms that over time spawned the half fish, half man being soon to be known as Koolik. In the 23rd year of our Lord, Koolik was visited by Hilarion, the 12th dimensional star commander. Taught in dream time, Koolik mastered the art of melting faces. Though no one knows precisely when, a group of dolphins carried our hero to the majestic shores of Detroit. It was at this time that Koolik cloaked himself deep within the mysterious back roads of your mind, all the while waiting to unlock the doors of your sub-conscious.Website
