Ao chegar à Terra em 1981, eu involuntariamente fiz contato com a raça humana. Com exceção de alguns encontros estimulantes, o resto me pareceu escuro e feio. “Encontro Humano” é meu diário desses encontros. Este álbum é dividido em duas categorias:

O “lado negro” reflete as experiências desagradáveis. Percebi que os seres humanos têm uma tendência a dar um nome a tudo, e em seguida, o interpretam de maneira errada. Portanto, não me importa o que realmente querem dizer com uma palavra como “mal”, mas não há dúvida de que os próprios seres humanos são a principal fonte de dor, terror e destruição na Terra.

O “lado bom” reflete os prazeres que eu encontrei neste planeta. Eu acho que nenhum prazer na terra acontece sem a intervenção dos seres humanos, então as músicas correspondentes são dedicadas aos seres humanos individuais. É claro que, à primeira vista, a Terra parece fisicamente atraente, mas essas são apenas caraterísticas temporárias. Só é imortal o que um homem faz.

Agora ao deixar este planeta, vou sentir saudades de algumas poucas pessoas como aquelas que eu nomeei no “lado bom” … Que os outros apodreçam no abismo do tempo!
