Così non viviamo mai, ma speriamo di vivere, e, preparandoci sempre ad essere felici, è inevitabile che non siamo mai tali."
Author: Blaise Pascal

14. "The Soviets were not 50% right, they were entirely wrong. They weren'tquantitatively wrong about the amount of variance due to the environment,they were qualitatively wrong about what environmental manipulationscould do in the face of built-in universal human machinery. Having said this,though, I now feel no particular impulse to vote Republican.Also, it's quite possible that someday you could create perfectly unselfishpeople… if you used sufficiently advanced neurosurgery, drugs, and/orbrain-computer interfaces to engineer their brains into a new state that nocurrent human brain occupies. Whether or not this is in fact possible isn'tsomething that ideology gets to decide. The reasoning errors of pastcommunists can't prohibit any particular future technological advance frombeing possible or practical. Having said that, I feel no particular impulse toturn "liberal."
Author: Eliezer Yudkowsky

Then, without caution, lest the first bloom of the relation wither, he opened the gate to his amusing world. So long as they subscribed to it completely, their happiness was his preoccupation, but at the first flicker of doubt as to its all- inclusiveness he evaporated before their eyes, leaving little communicable memory of what he had said or done."

20. "The Brinktown jail is one of the most ingenious ever propounded by civic authorities. It must be remembered that Brinktown occupies the surface of a volcanic butte, overlooking a trackless jungle of quagmire, thorn, eel-vine skiver tussock. A single road leads from city down to jungle; the prisoner is merely locked out of the city. Escape is at his option; he may flee as far through the jungle as he sees fit: the entire continent is at his disposal. But no prisoner ever ventures far from the gate; and, when his presence is required, it is only necessary to unlock the gate and call his name."

Listen to the moan of a dog for its master. That whining is the connection. There are love dogs no one knows the names of. Give your life to be one of them."
Author: Rumi
