Penetrating the Mask of Time

Where could one go to perhaps best understand the concept of time? Let us interact with people in the remote areas of Papua New Guinea. A land containing remote highlands and deep valleys. A unique environment to explore the mind of Man, without heavy infl uence of Western culture.

Papua New Guinea is a land where cannibals and head-hunters once roamed free, for centuries. But what lies in the minds of these people? How do they understand time, for are they not closest to it? Adam in Ochre, Adam in Plumes, Adam with Arrows are but three of the myriads of titles of books written about these regions.
