‘Angst, Unconsciousness and Craving’ refers to the three psychological poisons as presented in Buddhism. I got ‘em all and I cannot meditate them away. Darn it. So, I try to make the best of it. I imagine the poisons as a kind of trinitarian inner child in the hope that the three will moderate each other and transform each corresponding poison into its least egregious homeopathic version.
