To be free from the mechanical is to be in God because it is to be in the organic unity of existence.” ~ Rajneesh

Can men fly?” ~ Salman Rushdie

To the real. To the magnitude of pain, of being that much alive.” ~ Jack Gilbert

The decomposition of the subject is consummated in his self-abandonment to an ever-changing sameness.” ~ Theodor Adorno

  61. “If dislocation is a permanent state, I want to try and explore the possibility of temporary impermanence. If dislocation is a tatty dress from the thrift store, perhaps the solution is not to cast it aside.
