It is a living I Ching in which to inspire future Magister Ludi (Masters of The Game) to create future artistic and intellectual thoughts of perfection. It not only seeks an answer to the biggest philosophical question of all “why is there anything at all” but more importantly recognizes that” Beauty is Truth, Truth Beauty!” The House on the Hill is an illusionary place were potential profound ideas become actualized and realized. It is the unification of philosophy, art, religion, quantum mechanics, science, music, literature, mathematics, and the mind merged into one collective system known as The Glass Bead Game. It is my Metaphysics of Being. What does it mean to be truly free?” Mark Megna

The Journey To The East from the Author: Hermann Hesse. In simple, mesmerizing prose, Hermann Hesse tells of a journey both geographic and spiritual. H.H., a German choirmaster, is invited on an expedition with the League, a secret society whose members include Paul Klee, Mozart, and Albertus Magnus. The participants traverse both space and time, encountering Noah's Ark in Zurich and Don Quixote at Bremgarten. The pilgrims' ultimate destination is the East, the "Home of the Light," where they expect to find spiritual renewal. Yet the harmony that ruled at the outset of the trip soon degenerates into open conflict. Each traveler finds the rest of the group intolerable and heads off in his own direction, with H.H. bitterly blaming the others for the failure of the journey. It is only long after the trip, while poring over records in the League archives, that H.H. discovers his own role in the dissolution of the group, and the ominous significance of the journey itself.
