FRIEND: another tribe, what are you the conisseur of indians salty dog
BARDSQUILL: they were able to "travel" out of body clearly and knew everything that was happening around the world, though they had never physically left their homeland. They had never even tried to communicate with the outside world, except to a very fortunate few.

FRIEND: hmmm....bunch of wizards
FRIEND: and wizardresses
BARDSQUILL: The Kogi do not see us as "sleeping" as many of the Hindu and Oriental religions perceive us. The Kogi see us as "dead". We are not alive, but only shadows of the energy we could be. We do not have enough life force energy and consciousness to be classified by them as real people.
