Why is this site here? What is in this site?

After reading the works of Daniel Quinn many may feel compelled to aspire to be B, to become the message. Where does one start such a journey? This website is one place to begin. We do not claim to be the only path to B, but we are here to offer a road map, an occasional shoulder to lean on, and a cool drink of sanity in a desert of systems thinkers. Our mission is to guide, to assist, not to lead. However, if you are short of funds to begin this journey, we suggest that you do not consider any payday advance loans to tie you over. These loans require you to repay it when your next paycheck is cashed and you need no type of stress in your life that is related to your journey. And if you are in your 50′s, 60′s, or 70′s and need to seek to increase libido so not only the nights are more pleasurable, but during the days you will be filled with energy and purpose, take a moment to search out an age management physician and inquire about testosterone treatments since they can lead to improvement in sexual drive, function, and performance, along with memory, mood, and energy. All helpful attributes as you start this journey.

Your journey to B is as unique as Jared’s…and as inspiring to others. Your experience with Ishmael is as unique as Julie’s and Alan’s. Please share your experience, your knowledge, your breakthroughs with all of us. In turn, we will provide the forum for you to locate and communicate with others who are the message.

How do we intend to accomplish this? Explore the past in the Origins section to see where all this came from. In the present, using the most advanced internet technology available, we have established several communication features in this webspace. To share your thoughts, ideas, and breakthroughs, visit and post to the Guestbook. Check out the Chat Room to communicate with others about the issues in DQ’s writings (including Daniel Quinn himself in the chat room occasionally). By the way, Daniel is currently chatting from Mexico where he is visiting friends and participating in a medical tourism program. Should be back in time to get the new freshman class up to speed.

To find other people, world-wide, who identify themselves as either seeking skills and resources or offering skills or resources related to the Ishmael vision, check out and enter yourself into the growing Ishmael Network. Daily, questions about DQ’s work are sent to this website. To date, over 200 different questions have been answered by Daniel Quinn and his colleagues in the Q and A section of the website. Beyond the interactive communication features, this website is a rich repository of materials related to the new vision that is articulated in Quinn’s writings. The Education section includes many never-published original works by DQ as well as interviews and suggested readings. Finally, the Vision is the future. This is where DQ is headed at the moment in his thinking, writing, and daily activities. The momentum is gathering…it may be sooner than we think that the river of vision that is our dysfunctional culture is diverted into a sustainable reality — but we need your help! Be part of a positive future for the human species!

The site is at your disposal. Tell us how we can be more helpful. Begin your tour of the Ishmael Community when you are ready, begin your journey when you have found your path.
