Norman, you wrote, "Get real man, doom and gloom is so not in vogue." I am not sure why you brought that up. I don't recall saying anything about doom and gloom? If there is a physical manifestation of an apocalypse, let us hope the doom and gloom is kept to a minimum. Isn't that why the more spiritually conscious of us are hoping will be avoided if enough people can be directed along spiritual paths?
In regard to Dusk and willow's book, I thought that you had mentioned it earlier and I responded by saying something in line with what you wrote above, that if you asked all the people who left why they left, you would get a whole host of different personal reasons.
In regard to why Norman Paulsen wrote his autobiography, I do not recall anyone suggesting it for the reason that you quote from Dusk and Willow, although perhaps they suggested it before they left. Norman had been working on the book for quite a while (two to three years I believe) before it was published. So I would hesitate to say that statement from Dusk is very accurate. It was about the time he started writing it, I woud say, that people started leaving.
There was probably somewhere between 500 and a 1,000 people who passed through what was Sunburst. The most who stayed on at any given time with any sense of committment to a brotherhood colony was 300. So, you can imagine the range of reasons that might be given by so many people.
