Author Quotes

Money is always transitively valued. More money is supposedly always better than less money.

Logic is a poor model of cause and effect.

Logic can often be reversed, but the effect does not precede the cause.

But epistemology is always and inevitably personal. The point of the probe is always in the heart of the explorer: What is my answer to the question of the nature of knowing?

All experience is subjective.

The map is not the territory.

Any living thing which triumphs in the struggle against its environment destroys itself.
