I read a theory once that the human intellect was like peacock feathers. Just an extravagant display intended to attract a mate. All of art, literature, a bit of Mozart, William Shakespeare, Michelangelo, and the Empire State Building. Just an elaborate mating ritual.

It lives in the dirt, pecking insects out of the muck, consoling itself with its great beauty.Robert Ford, S1.Ep7: Trompe L'Oeil
8

12
Divine gift does not come from a higher power, but from our own minds.Robert Ford, S1.Ep10: The Bicameral Mind
