Arabs called it the Christian disease. Today, it is called syphilis."

I could be anywhere, and since I can't describe myself I can't ask for help."

14. "He saw virus particles shaped like snakes, in negative images. They were white cobras tangled among themselves, like the hair of Medusa. They were the face of nature herself, the obscene goddess revealed naked. This life form thing was breathtakingly beautiful.

He was lost in wonder and admiration, even though he knew that he was the prey. (149)"

In 1485, the Wars of the Roses came to an end, and, following the invention of printing, William Caxton issued the first imaginative book to be published in England - Sir Thomas Malory's retelling of the Arthurian legends as Le Morte D'Arthur.

New worlds, both geographical and spiritual, are the key to the Renaissance, the 'rebirth' of learning and culture, which reached its peak in Italy in the early sixteenth century and in Britain during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, from 1558 to 1603."

Author: Thomas Friedman

Author: Tom Robbins
20. "The past was a consumable, subject to the national preference for familiar products. And history, in America, is a dish best served plain. The first course could include a dollop of Italian in 1492, but not Spanish spice or French sauce or too much Indian corn. Nothing too filling or fancy ahead of the turkey and pumpkin pie, just the way Grandma used to cook it."

21. "Beyler," dedi, "gidip su kulübeyi ölçmenizi rica ediyorum. Tezgahin uzunlugunun 149 santimetre oldugunu göreceksiniz, yani Dünya ile Günes arasindaki uzakligin yüz milyarda biri. Kulübenin arka tarafinin yüksekligini, pencerelerin genisligine bölerseniz 176:56=3,14 çikar. Ön tarafin yüksekligi 19 desimetredir; bu da, Yunan aydönümü yillarinin sayisina esittir. Iki ön kösenin yüksekligi ile iki arka kösenin yüksekliginin toplami ise (190x2)+(176x2)=732'dir; bu da Poitiers zaferinin tarihidir. Tezgahin kalinligi 3,10 santimetre, pencerenin kornisinin genisligi ise 8,8 santimetredir. Tam sayilarin yerine onlara denk düsen alfebe harflerini (3 yerine C, 8 yerine H) koyarsak, C10H8'i elde ederiz. Bu da naftalinin formülüdür.""Olaganüstü!" dedim, "Bütün bu ölçümleri yaptiniz mi?""Hayir," dedi Aglié, "Jean-Pierre Adam diye biri, baska bir kulübe üstünde yapti. Sanirim piyango bileti satilan kulübelerin boyutlari az çok aynidir."
Author: Umberto Eco
22. "La science, dans la mesure où elle est inconsciemment influencée par l'idéologie réactionnaire, formule des thèses destinées à fournir une base scientifique solide à cette idéologie. Bien souvent, elle ne va pas jusque-là, et se contente de se référer à la célèbre "nature morale" de l'homme. Ce faisant, elle oublie son propre point de vue, qu'elle ne manque cependant pas d'opposer à ses adversaires idéologiques, selon lequel la tâche légitime de la science se limite à décrire les faits en dehors de toute appréciation, et à expliquer ces faits quant à leur causalité. Lorsqu'elle veut faire mieux que justifier les exigences sociales par un simple recours aux idées morales, elle use d'une méthode objectivement bien plus dangereuse, car elle dissimule les points de vues moraux derrière des thèses pseudo-scientifiques. La moralité se trouve ainsi "scientifiquement" rationalisée. (p. 148-149)"
Author: Wilhelm Reich
