A traveller seeks the light. There is another way to travel the stars, without using warp drive. In Spiritualist meditation, the “merkabah vessel” is visualised, affording safe transit of the etheric realm. Folklore has this geometric form that combines two tetrahedrons, one inverted, as central to everything from powering Atlantis to forming the stardrives of UFOs.
