"Libraries distort time and space. The equation is: knowledge = power = energy = mass; mass distorts space." Terry Pratchett, from one of the Disworld novels, proofing that you can timetravel in your library. Ook."Some say the world will end in fire,Some say in ice.From what I've tasted of desire, I hold with those who favour fire.But if it had to perish twiceI think I know enough of hateTo say that for destruction iceIs also nice and would suffice"Robert FrostOr William Blake"Cruelty has a human heart,And Jealousy a human face;Terror the human form divine,And Secresy the human dress.The human dress is forged iron,The human form a fiery forge,The human face a furnace sealed,The human heart its hungry gorge. "A Divine Image"Tyger! Tyger! burning bright In the forest of the night..." - I love that, but it's too long to quote it here. Blake has fascinated me ever since I read "Red Dragon" some years ago.

"The band had discovered a concrete monolith on a Sheffield slag-heap, a potent symbol of alienation and the mundane uniformity of modern life. This was a wonderful example of real life surrealism, for which the band could find no other purpose than to piss upon!"-John Atkins comments about "Who's Next"Gert

"Arguing that there was no trade between Europe and East Asia in the early Middle Ages because there are no written records of such trade is like arguing that the yeti, an apelike creature supposedly existing in the Himalayas, does not exist because there have been no scientifically confirmed sightings. A verifiable sighting of the yeti would prove that the creature does exist, but the absence of sightings cannot prove that it does not ."

What sets worlds in motion is interplay of differences, their attractions and repulsions. Life is plurality, death is uniformity. By suppressing differences and peculiarities, by eliminating different civilizations and cultures, progress weakens life and favors death, impoverishes and mutilates us. Every view of the world that becomes extinct, every culture that disappears, diminishes a possibility of life.-Octavio Paz
