I Am A Prisoner
Koch's Curve
“You take delight not in a city's seven or seventy wonders, but in the answer it gives to a question of yours.”
If the dream is a translation of waking life, waking life is also a translation of the dream. ”
“I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I'm frightened of the old ones.”
“I speak only one language, and it is not my own.”
Godstar (Fuck Genesis P-Orridge)


"It has a centre which is perceiving man, and it therefore has an excellent system of directions which changes with the movements of the human body; it is limited and in no sense neutral, in other words it is finite, heterogenous, subjectively defined and perceived; distances and directions are fixed relative to man..."

- Günter Nitschke's "Anatomie der gelebten Umwelt"

“The inferno of the living is not something that will be; if there is one, it is what is already here, the inferno where we live every day, that we form by being together. There are two ways to escape suffering it. The first is easy for many: accept the inferno and become such a part of it that you can no longer see it. The second is risky and demands constant vigilance and apprehension: seek and learn to recognize who and what, in the midst of inferno, are not inferno, then make them endure, give them space.”

- Italo Calvino, "Invisible Cities"

“You have wakened not out of sleep, but into a prior dream, and that dream lies within another, and so on, to infinity, which is the number of grains of sand. The path that you are to take is endless, and you will die before you have truly awakened.”

- Jorge Luis Borges
