You know, maybe, Tool just made this song to concentrate on the music and see what they could do with it. Maybe there's no spiritual or philosophical point, maybe it's just them jamming. Or maybe the point is to show some other musicians how much is really achievable with the traditional rock instruments. Cause man....this song is friggin' crazy.

As a drummer, it is lots of fun to just get together with other instrumentalists and see what you can come up with. Especially if you have people with a real drive to be creative and a real intellect for music, it's crazy fun. Way, way too much fun. I could easily do it for 12 hours straight and probaly forget to use the bathroom. Now, if your friends are some of the best players in the biz, have a strong interest in non-western ideas of music as well as traditional popular music and how one might intertwine them, and above all are interested in doing something unlike anything before it, the potential fun could cause physical health problems. Maybe this is just some of the best ideas they got while playing around, and then they went from there and made "Triad."

Needless to say, it's awesome.
