ABOUT KLAAS & HIGH PROGRAMMING
You’re looking at me, Klaas P. van der Tempel, a Dutch-Canadian philosopher and mystic, born backwards in the spring in Orwell’s famous year around lunch time.
I’m a freelance writer, illustrator, and trip guide based in The Hague, the Netherlands. I’ve been working with mind altering drugs like anthropological linguistics (no joke), cannabis, and psilocybin for personal growth for over 10 years. Nowadays I like to guide other intrepid explorers of the mind using the myriad tools I’ve collected along the way.
“When I started my own search for truth, and I experienced consciousness change as a psychological and philosophical tool, I had nowhere to turn to but the internet. There was no guidance, no follow-up, and in the end I could find nobody to talk to about the incredible visions, the deep insights, and the life-changing experiences that I had. I wanted to change that. I wanted there to be somewhere that young people could go to for help, guidance, and information, in a safe and professional environment.”
GOING OUT OF YOUR MIND AND COMING BACK AGAIN
If you’re questioning your existence, consciousness, evolution, language, reality, death, certainty, self, truth, coincidence, time, and other such mysteries; where do you begin? And how can you use your answers to live a meaningful life?
To help find your way, there are those like myself who have waded knee-deep through the same metaphysical shit as you and who have kept their minds mostly intact. Mostly. If you’re looking for a philosophically, linguistically, scientifically minded and open hearted guide through the backstage of reality, look no further.
