The architectural experiences met at Babylon through Khun Toc's design derive from sound, light, and rhythm, creating for men senses of arrival, meeting, identity, and common agreement. Among the most important features of the space is its emphasis not simply on sex, but on men feasting, a manhood built upon pleasure rather than power. The chapter closes with a description of one such feast in 2005, when an emissary from Stuart Koe arrived, seeking help because of troubles in Singapore.
