She dramatically turned her nose up at my armpit, then made a big show of putting on her face mask. The temple was a huge, two-story sprawling structure, dotted with high towers and flying buttresses. It was filled with robotic Tibetan gongs that played strange clanging tunes throughout the day. The outer wings of the temple were open to the sky, made of the same lumber as the rest of the whole elaborate curlicue structure. The walls were lined with benches and were inset with niches and nooks. And everywhere, every surface, was covered in writing and signs and posters and pictures.
It veered from wild accusation to tender exasperation to anger to sorrow, like some kind of emotional roller coaster. Every surface in the temple was a memorial to something or someone. There were baby shoes and pictures of grannies, a pair of crutches and a beat-up cowboy hat with a hatband woven from dead dried flowers. Burners—dressed and undressed like a circus from the end of the world—walked solemnly around these, reading them, more often than not with tears running down their faces. Pretty soon, I had tears running down my face.
It moved me in a way that nothing had ever moved me before. Especially since it was all going to burn on Sunday night, before we tore down Black Rock City and went home. Ange sat in the dust and began looking through a sketchbook whose pages were filled with dense, dark illustrations. I wandered into the main atrium of the temple, a tall, airy space whose walls were lined with gongs. Here, the floor was carpeted with people—sitting and lying down, eyes closed, soaking in the solemnity of the moment, some with small smiles, some weeping, some with expressions of utmost serenity.
Some of the kids kept on giggling. There was some kind of shouting going on in the hallway outside the door. In theory it was easy, too: just sit down and think of nothing. So I did. I shifted my utility belt around so that I could sit down without it digging into my ass and waited until a patch of floor was vacated, then sat. There were streamers of sunlight piercing the high windows above, lancing down in gray-gold spikes that glittered with dancing dust. I looked into one of these, at the dancing motes, and then closed my eyes.
I pictured a grid of four squares, featureless and white with thick black rims and sharp corners. Then another. Now there was just one square. I erased it. There was nothing now. I was thinking of nothing, literally. Then I was thinking about the fact that I was thinking about nothing, mentally congratulating myself, and I realized that I was thinking of something again. I pictured my four squares and started over. I was living in that exact and very moment, not anticipating anything that might happen later, not thinking of anything that had just happened, just being right there.
It only lasted for a fraction of a second each time, but each of those fragmentary moments were … well, they were something. I opened my eyes. I was breathing in time with the gongs around me, a slow, steady cadence. The girl in front of me had a complex equation branded into the skin of her shoulder blades, the burned skin curdled into deep, sharp-relief mathematical symbols and numbers.
Someone smelled like weed. Someone was sobbing softly. Someone outside the temple called out to someone else. Someone laughed. Time was like molasses, flowing slowly and stickily around me. Nothing seemed important and everything seemed wonderful. I smiled. The voice tickled me, too, tickled my memory. Slowly, as though I were a giraffe with a neck as tall as a tree, I turned my head to look around. Kidnapping people on the playa was definitely against the rules.
It was in the Ten Principles, I was nearly certain of it. I got to my feet and followed her, freely and of my own will, and even though I trembled with fear as I got up, there was a nugget of excitement in there, too. Of course this was happening now, at Burning Man. Since then, it had all gone downhill, in a weird way.
