"One of the ways we navigate our universe depends on our implementing and embodying propositional models. Our material experience involves comparing perceived realities with these propositional models. I'm not concerned that propositional cosmologies correspond in an exact way with some idea about reality, because in my view the realities we believe in are also propositional."
- David Rosenboom
"Happiness is excitement that has found a settling down place. But there is always a little corner that keeps flapping around."
"The country and its otherwise levelheaded journalistic institutions have forfeited the last vestiges of common sense before the altar of all things religious. We are alone, outside of the theocracies of the Middle East, in this distinction. Humbug." Berkely Breathed
'I believe that, for humanity to progress, the model of the world, of reality, that parents pass on to their children needs to be replaced when the kids are in their teens by a darker, more complex vision. One taking into account all kinds of miasma, multiple plains of existence, sexual liberation, human perversity, idiocy, and beauty. I feel that benevolent outsiders, such as visionary homosexuals who bare their artistic souls in public, are fully qualified to do this. As long as children stay with the model of reality provided by their folks, no progress will be made.'
- Peter Christopherson
Mother nature always wins.
Always look on the bright side of life.
Animals have these advantages over man:
they never hear the clock strike
they die without any idea of death
they have no theologians to instruct them
their last moments are not disturbed by unwelcome and unpleasant ceremonies
their funerals cost them nothing
and no one starts lawsuits over their wills.

WOW! LOOK AT THAT!
'If I have not seen further, it is because I have been standing on the shoulders of dickheads.'
close enough :)
