"If I'm accurate with the broad strokes and the sacred geometry of it, you'll have some experience that applies to this story, but I don't lay it all out," says Keenan. "It's not just all A, B, C, therefore D. It's gonna be all over the map, it's going to require you to be engaged in some way." Keenan applies this same reasoning to how he choses to harvest the grapes in his vineyard.

"We're not gonna beat you over the head with it, if you don't want to get it, you don't have to, you can just have some wine and food and move along. The song, you can just tap you feet, jump up and down... No matter what the project - PusciferPerfect Circle, Tool - we're trying to give you something that's more than the sum of its parts."
