I was reading Sufi scripture for my (vile) Religion class when I found this quote. Since I'm going to sell the book at the end of the year I thought I would immortalize it here.

Think how it is to have a conversation with an embryo. You might say, "The world is vast and intricate. There are wheat fields and mountain passes, and orchards in bloom. At night there are millions of galaxies, and in sunlight the beauty of friends dancing at a wedding." You ask the embryo why he or she stays cooped up in the dark with eyes closed. Listen to the answer. There is no "other world." I only know what I've experienced. You must be hallucinating.

You should have posted this in the Chronophasia=LSD thread.

Probably, but I have a very short attention span and could never read all the way through it...
