Haruki Murakami
“My peak? Would I even have one? I hardly had had anything you could call a life. A few ripples. some rises and falls. But that's it. Almost nothing. Nothing born of nothing. I'd loved and been loved, but I had nothing to show. It was a singularly plain, featureless landscape. I felt like I was in a video game. A surrogate Pacman, crunching blindly through a labyrinth of dotted lines. The only certainty was my death.”
Haruki Murakami, Dance Dance Dance

Roland Smith

Roland Smith, Peak

Salman Rushdie
“Scraps of memory: this is not how a climax should be written. A climax should surge towards its Himalayan peak; but I am left with shreds, and must jerk towards my crisis like a puppet with broken strings. This is not what I had planned; but perhaps the story you finish is never the one you begin.”
Salman Rushdie

“Mount Everest has a “death zone”. When a climber is in that zone, at very high altitude, he’s living on borrowed time. He will almost certainly need a good oxygen supply. All living tissue is starting to die (necrosis) thanks to the cold and the altitude. Unlike climbers, the higher that geniuses ascend, the more invigorated they become, the stronger their flesh and minds become. They experience the opposite of necrosis. They have entered the Life Zone.”
Mike Hockney, HyperHumanity

“I had taken an obsolete astronomical spectral gas tube home from the observatory for use as an ornament. Many years later I broke the specialized gas tube in the home. In the days afterwards I started experiencing sickness that I had been reporting to my doctor during working at the high altitude observatory. My notes state: During the last few days my bones are starting to ache again and nerves are twitching in my body and face like they were when I worked at the Kitt Peak National Observatory (KPNO)...headaches...insomnia...zoning out...tired...forgetful...confusion. 5 days earlier I had been atop Kitt Peak mountain and 4 days later the sheriff disconnected my electricity.”

“When I was hired to work at the Kitt Peak National Observatory (KPNO), it was not disclosed to me that the site was being hit by powerful sonic booms from military supersonic aircraft that would shake the buildings. I had noticed that there seemed to be a significant number of staff that were having heart issues and some appeared to have had heart attacks and died prematurely. I later discovered during researching my own heart issues that it was a suspected effect of exposure to sonic booms. Regular exposure to sonic booms from military supersonic jet aircraft is suspected of increasing the incidence of vibroacoustic disease, a thickening of heart tissue which may lead to heart arrhythmia or premature death.”

“I had a mysterious prolonged UTI of unknown cause in 2007 that all medical UTI testing proved negative. A year later in 2008 my doctor was stating ‘He has a plethora of multi-system complaints with no specificity.’ I had been working at an astronomical facility that used a large amount of mercury and had been handling rubber filled mercury systems with no personal protective equipment, such as gloves and respirators. The Kitt Peak National Observatory (KPNO) where I worked provided no industry recognized training in the safe handling of mercury.”
