I agree it's a pretty drastic change between RS and Intension. My alternate version places Intension after Jambi, which I think works quite well.

If you move Intension then you would have to move Right In Two as well because they are connected in some strange way.
let's just keep it the way they gave* it to us.

I think it makes sense as it is....if anybody's experienced a hard trip, after the craziness and peeking hours later you finally start coming down and everything seems calm and peaceful and at least for me that's about the point I start thinking deeply about nature and thinking through ideas and feelings. The calm after the storm per sey. Maybe this is Dave's calm down period after getting out of the hospital and then Right In Two is him in deep thought about how pitiful and greedy humanity can be. Then comes Viginti Tres, when he finally falls asleep he has this vivid crazy ass dream of being abducted or whatever it's supposed to represent.

listen to the non reversed words of this song, there's a line where it's like "Forge a blade and slay the stranger" or something, as in "forge a blade and where there's one they're bound to divide it... Right In Two." I have to admit I used to skip through this track, but now it's just as important as listening to Lost Keys and Rosetta Stoned together. or better yet, listening to the album all the way through.
