The book will be 100+ pages, with clamshell box, foil-embossed box logo, debossed book logo, and tipped-in overlay vellum sheets.

This will be the only hardcover version of this book, ever. Also comes with Symbiosis e-book.

    LEARNED MASTER LEVEL- Are you an expert (self-taught or with diploma) in physics, linguistics, esoteric religions, economics, or some other field that you think would be relevant to Symbiosis? Do you want to make a direct contribution to the content of the book? This level makes you a scientific consultant to the project, with your name on the frontispiece along with mine. Your input in the relevant field will be used to shape applicable areas of Symbiosis. As a cherry on top, you also get everything in the "ADMIRAL OF THE FLEET" level, and, if you so desire, you are invited to spend an afternoon with me in my Kansas City studio working together on the areas relevant to you. (You'll need to cover your own travel expenses and room & board. I'll gladly take you out to lunch and/or dinner, though!)
