One day more than 50 years ago Martin heard a voice, from "the spirit world," and that voice told him, "You're gonna' be the start of somethin' new, and you're gonna be called a Pasaquoyan, and your name will be Saint EOM."
"I heard that voice a long time
before I knew any Spanish," St. EOM explained, "but later I
found out that past means pass' in Spanish. And I found out that
a quan' is an Oriental word that means bringin' the past and the future
together, so you can derive the benefits of the past by bringin' it into the future.' And so I call myself a Pasaquoyan, and this place is called Pasaquan, where the past and the present and the future and everything else come together."
