De când am venit pe Pământ în 1981, involuntar am intrat în contact cu rasa umană. Cu excepţia câtorva întâlniri luminoase, restul mi s-a părut întunecat şi urât. „Human encounter” (Întâlnire cu oameni) este jurnalul meu despre aceste întâlniri. Acest album este împărţit în două categorii:

„Partea întunecată” reflectă experienţele negative. Am observat că oamenii au tendinţa de a da tuturor lucrurilor un nume pentru ca mai apoi să-l înţeleagă greşit. Aşa că nu îmi pasă ce vor să spună printr-un cuvânt ca „rău”, dar fără îndoială oamenii înşişi sunt sursa principală de teroare, durere şi distrugere pe Pământ.

„Partea luminoasă” reflectă plăcerile pe care le-am trăit pe această planetă. Consider că nicio plăcere lumească nu există fără implicarea omului, iar cântecele corespunzătoare acestei părţi sunt dedicate unor oameni. Desigur, la prima vedere, Pământul pare atrăgător, dar acestea sunt doar trăsături temporare. Singurul lucru nemuritor este ceea ce omul creează.

Acum că părăsesc această planetă, îmi vor lipsi doar câţiva oameni, cei pe care i-am numit în „partea luminoasă”… Fie ca ceilalţi să se descompună în abisul timpului.
