“What we believe to be true is defined by our frame of reference. As useful as that may be, inevitably, something will come along to make us rethink what we know by forcing us to look at it in a broader context. What is true within a certain frame continues only until the next frame is discovered.” - Imaginary...
“The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” -Marcel Proust
“The appearance of things change according to the emotions and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.” -Kahlil Gilbran
“At this moment, millions of nonhuman animals are literally starving or dying of thirst, parasitism and disease. Others are being asphyxiated, disemboweled or eaten alive by predators. Such are the savageries of a “food chain”: “Nature, red in tooth and claw”. So-called conservation biology - an ideology masquerading as a scientific discipline - aims to preserve...

“Whenever people are certain they understand our peculiar situation here on this planet, it is because they have accepted a religious Faith or a secular Ideology (Ideologies are the modern form of Faiths) and just stopped thinking.” -Robert Anton Wilson
“Truly free people do not need to be told they are free.” -Jacque Fresco
“Being human, I made all the mistakes there were to be made but I learned to learn by realistic recognition of the constituent facts of the mistake-making and attempted to understand what the uncovered truths were trying to teach me.” -Buckminster Fuller
“Most humans haven’t gotten to the level of realizing the personhood of other races yet, you know. Bipedalism represents a great leap forward toward universal critterkind, and you have to take these things one step at a time. The six-legged majority still inspire fear and loathing in backward societies.”...
“Where’s the candidate trying to build robots to do this shit for us we don’t have to work? The long term goal of any society should be complete unemployment. …I would vote for any candidate even if he were lying if he ran on the platform where at least one of the top 5 things was enjoying life.”...
“It is by logic we prove, but by intuition we discover.” -Henri Poincaré
“There’s no mention in the Constitution of drugs anywhere.” -Sasha Shulgin
“Ours is a culture that must know why it matters…and that must feel the impulse to matter far, far more. Ours is a culture that must look up, that must look toward the sun, that must aspire to the stars, and that must realize that we are not an empire about to fall but a civilization in embryo, one that has the potential to do things for humanity that humans in the past have...
“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” -Jiddu Krishnamurti
“To those Americans born between 1980 and 1995—know that there are about 80 million of YOU! You outnumber the 76 million aging baby boomers and have enormous political power. You are the smartest, wisest, most well-informed and ecologically aware human beings to ever emerge from our planetary biosphere. And you have the power to make anything happen—but you must act now!” ...
“This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are...
“To be nobody but yourself - in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you like everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting.” - E. E. Cummings
“The moral faculties are generally and justly esteemed as of higher value than the intellectual powers. But we should bear in mind that the activity of the mind in vividly recalling past impressions is one of the fundamental though secondary bases of conscience. This affords the strongest argument for educating and stimulating in all possible ways the intellectual faculties of every human...

“We’ve been confused with what we’ve been made to feel with knowledge.” -Chris Hedges
“The majority of Terrans were six-legged. They had territorial squabbles and politics and wars and a caste system. They also had sufficient intelligence to survive on that barren boondocks planet for several billions of years. We are not concerned here with the majority of Terrans. We are concerned with a tiny minority-the domesticated primates who built cities and wrote symphonies and...
“We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be ...

“Republicans and Democrats differ on rare occasions.” -Noam Chomsky
“The history of science-fiction has aptly demonstrated that its purpose is not to determine the absolute future, but to render an indication of the extent of the cultural lag to which any present world view is subject.” - Paul Laffoley
“Humanity’s present rate of total energy consumption amounts to only one four-millionth of one percent of the rate of its energy income.” -Buckminster Fuller
“My own opinion is that belief is the death of intelligence. As soon as one believes a doctrine of any sort, or assumes certitude, one stops thinking about that aspect of existence. The more certitude one assumes, the less there is left to think about, and a person sure of everything would never have any need to think about anything and might be considered clinically dead under current...
“There is immeasurably more left inside than what comes out in words.” -Dostoyevsky
“How mad would the 20th century have sounded recited to the 19th? What it comes down to is trying to have faith that man is good, because what is happening is that whatever man is, man is taking control the definition of being human. So that through genetic engineering, through drug design, through probing of these weird psychedelic dimensions, through cybernetic interphase, through...
“One must have chaos within oneself, to give birth to a dancing star.” -Nietzsche
“Time is the moving image of eternity.” -Plato
“History is a race between education and catastrophe.” -H.G. Wells

“There is no liberation to compare with freeing oneself from the illusions and delusions of the age in which one lives.” -Terence McKenna
“Inability to accept the mystic experience is more than an intellectual handicap. Lack of awareness of the basic unity of organism and environment is a serious and dangerous hallucination. For in a civilization equipped with immense technological power, the sense of alienation between man and nature leads to the use of technology in a hostile spirit—-to...
“Making the world’s available resources serve one hundred percent of an exploding population can only be accomplished by a boldly accelerated design revolution… …Nature is trying very hard to make us succeed, but nature does not depend on us.” -Buckminster Fuller
“The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we’re at when we created them.” -Albert Einstein
“Hedonic Engineering - The human nervous system studying and improving itself: intelligence studying and improving intelligence. Why be depressed, dumb, and agitated when you can be happy, smart, and tranquil?” -Robert Anton Wilson
“Millions of years from now, wherever we are in the Universe, whoever we are, however we look, we will always remember these years.” -FM 2030
“As order exponentially increases, time exponentially speeds up… Exponential growth looks like nothing is happening, and then suddenly you get this explosion at the end.” -Ray Kurzweil
“Patriotism is a disease.” -Albert Einstein
“We have been to the moon, we have charted the depths of the ocean, the heart of the atom. But we have a fear of looking inward, because we sense that here is where all the contradictions flow together. I think that being imposes some kind of obligation to find out what’s going on, and since all primary information about what’s going on comes through the senses, any drug or any...
“The joy of life consists in the exercise of one’s energies, continual growth, constant change, the enjoyment of every new experience. To stop means simply to die. The eternal mistake of mankind is to set up an attainable ideal.” -Aliester Crowley
“Man is not going to wait passively for millions of years before evolution offers him a better brain.” -Corneliu E. Giurgea
“The real historical entity that is becoming imminent is the human soul. The monkey body has served to carry us to this moment of release, and it will always serve as a focus of self-image, but we are coming more and more to exist in a world made by the human imagination.” ...
