Is Carlos Santana esoteric? If you think so don't bother with the next two pages of Hyborian Bridge. Otherwise, HB24 leads into the Hyborian city-state, which is an absolute in time and place, like communal music.
Slight detour to the Tower of David at Caracas! The medievalist feel reminded me of the Morlocks from X-Men. Does this make it an absolute society, as in ancient Rome.. or Hyrkanian Makkalet.. or Turanian Aghrapur?
Page 31 is missing this bit at end:
..a microcosmic feel of bodies and buildings as in days of yore. Of course, that’s not going to happen when the head is in charge, and where everything is relative (to the ego). At the top of the pyramid of inflated egos is the supreme sorcerer, whether you call them Thoth Amon or Einstein..
This picture from HB36 I've found useful as an image that goes quite well alongside Weird Tales. The baleful reality that modern Man denies. That is coming into the next post, meanwhile rehsongcycle.com/hyborian_bridge39_outtake
