Taileaters takes a critical role in exploring consciousness and the human experience. We focus some of our attention on subjects surrounding altered state experiences such as lucid dreaming, out of body experiences, and aspire to create a more holistic way of understanding our place in the world. Taileaters was created to help individuals who are seeking answers to the deeper questions about reality with the goal to find answers and to continue their journey to the realization of the Self.
Lee Adams created Taileaters to document and share his personal journey through the hard and complex questions that he has faced. He found the ouroboros as a symbol of inspiration in his life because of the personal connection he felt with the symbol itself and through the process of learning what it represents. The ouroboros (taileater) indicates a process of birth, death, and rebirth that takes place in all of our lives, each moment of each day, when we sleep, and when we physically transform into what is after our physical death. It also explores the circular process of learning and refining ones ideas. The power that the ouroboros acts on as symbol is profound as its meaning is great, but ultimately it implies the journey of discernment of polarities and the re-unifications and realization of the Self. Taileaters use the Ouroboros as a symbol to represent their dedication to understanding and learning about this process that affects us all. Lee’s hope is to share what he learned through this process with others.

“I live, I die, I learn, I forget, I do it all again.”
“But if the life-mass is to be transformed a circumambulatio is necessary, i.e., exclusive concentration on the centre, the place of creative change. During this process one is “bitten” by animals; in other words, we have to expose ourselves to the animal impulse of the unconscious without identifying with them and without “running away”; for flight from the unconscious would defeat the purpose of the whole proceeding. We must hold our ground which means here that the process initiated by the dreamers self-observation must be experienced in all its ramifications and then articulated with consciousness to the best of his understanding.” – Carl Jung
