for our purpose of communicating.
Through coincidence or fate I have become aware of an almost continuous lineage of Raving throughout mans’ history. Perhaps this is a reminder to some or perhaps you never realised the complete history of Raves. Most are aware of the general culture of Raves and the guidelines for Rave etiquette, but, not many would be aware of the tradition that accompanies these values.
