You rush a miracle man, you get rotten miracles.

"Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions. Their lives a mimicry. Their passions a quotation." - Oscar Wilde

"Life is too short to be taken seriously" - Oscar Wilde


Seems to me this is simply a weakness of natural language. The word description to me is simply information about the way things moved (when someone saw the color red). Experience on the other hand is totally different set of cause and effect in the brain and can only happen with a proper cause which obviously is quite different from the cause like analytical information (obviously doesn't result in the same brain state as the real thing). To me there doesn't appear to be anything particularly puzzling about this.


"I am not interested in erecting a building, but in presenting to myself the foundations of all possible buildings." - Wittgenstein

Why is the sky the limit, when there are footprints on the moon?

"The best revenge is not to be like that." - Marcus Aurelius

“It is every man's obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out of it.” - Albert Einstein

“Travel far enough, you meet yourself.” -David Mitchell (Cloud Atlas)

It's not who you are underneath, but what you do that defines you.

It's not always a matter of how smart or talented you are, sometimes it's a matter of how badly you're willing to fight for it.

"The only reason you should look into someone else's bowl is to make sure they have enough."

Never judge anyone on anything that they have no control over.

Power does not corrupt, it is magnetic to the corruptible. - Frank Herbert

Never carry in your mind what fits in your briefcase.

"Reach what you cannot" - N. Kazantzakis

People may not deserve your respect, but they'll never learn to become worthy of that respect unless you show them an example first.

"Wait and Hope."
