The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.
You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.
We are living in a computer-programmed reality, and the only clue we have to it is when some variable is changed, and some alteration in reality occurs. We have the overwhelming impression that we were reliving the present – deja vu.
To understand the actual world as it is, not as we should wish it to be, is the beginning of wisdom.
The two basic topics which fascinate me are “What is reality?” and “What constitutes the authentic human being?”
The interpretation of our reality through patterns not our own, serves only to make us ever more unknown, ever less free, ever more solitary.[La interpretación de nuestra realidad con esquemas ajenos sólo contribuye a hacernos cada vez más desconocidos, cada vez menos libres, cada vez más solitarios.]
The “punch” of a truly weird tale is simply some violation or transcending of fixed cosmic law — an imaginative escape from palling reality — hence phenomena rather than persons are the logical “heroes”.
