    We have made the great mistake of assuming that the "world of spirit" described by those who preceded us was the modern "world of matter," primitively conceptualized. This is not true - at least not in the simple manner we generally believe. The cosmos described by mythology was not the same place known to practitioners of modern science - but that does not mean it was not real. We have not yet found God above, nor the devil below, because we do not yet understand where "above" and "below" might be found.

    ...something unexpected might signify inconceivable opportunity for expansion of general competence and well-being. Your old, boring but secure job unexpectedly disappears. A year later, you are doing what you really want to do, and your life is incomparably better.

    Whatever the cost of our libraries, the price is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation.
    Walter Cronkite
    When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead.
    It is the same way when you are stupid.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.
