“...he no longer made any distinction at all between his thoughts and actions nor between his dreaming and waking; and perfecting Leibniz’ (sic) definition, that perception is an illusion which is true, he saw no reason not to say: hallucination is a perception which is false, or more exactly: faint, or better still: foreseen (remembered sometimes, which is the same thing). And he believed that above all there are only hallucinations, or perceptions, and that there are neither nights nor days... and that life is continuous.”
- Alfred Jarry.
“By degrees we beheld the infinite Abyss, fiery as the smoke of a burning city; beneath us, at an immense distance, was the sun, black but shining; round it were fiery tracks on which revolv’d vast spiders, crawling after their prey, which flew, or rather swum, in the infinite deep... These are Devils, and are called Powers of the air. I now asked my companion which was my eternal lot? He said: ‘between the black and white spiders.’ ...Opposition is true friendship.”
- William Blake.
