Consider This . . .


“An idea starts to be interesting
when you get scared of taking it to its logical conclusion.”

“The test of originality for an idea is not the absence of one single predecessor but the presence of multiple but incompatible ones.”

 “Modernity’s double punishment is to make us
both age prematurely and live longer.”

“Asking science to explain life and vital matters is equivalent to asking a grammarian to explain poetry.”

Gems from The Bed of Procrustes, by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
