“Knowing provides closure, but the mystery of not knowing inspires curiosity, wonder and a shared quest for answers.”

The Ravenous Brain by Daniel Bor
“Consciousness is our gateway to experience: It enables us to recognize Van Gogh’s starry skies, be enraptured by Beethoven’s Fifth, and stand in awe of a snowcapped mountain. Yet consciousness is subjective, personal, and famously difficult to examine.”

Golden Eye by Ross Andersen
“It blasts open new tunnels between the mind and The Other, tunnels not easily sealed by the censorious henchmen of fading paradigms.”
