Each of us is armed with this touchstone of actuality; by applying it we decide that this sorry world of ours is actual and Utopia is a dream. As our individual consciousnesses are different, so our touchstones are different; but fortunately they all agree in their indication of actuality - or at any rate those which agree are in sufficient majority to shut the others up in lunatic asylums.Arthur Stanley Eddington Consciousnesses Sayings By Arthur Stanley Eddington: Each of us is armed with this touchstone of actuality; by applying it we decide
Christ wasn't a Christian and Buddha wasn't a Buddhist and Muhammad wasn't Muslim. These people were having the experience of unity consciousnesses and universal consciousness and they spoke of it in words.Deepak Chopra Consciousnesses Sayings By Deepak Chopra: Christ wasn't a Christian and Buddha wasn't a Buddhist and Muhammad wasn't Muslim. These people
How would it alter Juliet's love perception to learn the sea is but a rounded jug of water? Would her sensuous analogy turned simple simile unveil to her the limits of herself? Or would she forget the ocean, that deplorable casket, and turn on the true bottomless tumbler, the only running tap: the sky? It may have lost the title 'heavens' when its gods were dethroned, but its infinity reigns. So long as you walk, it reigns. So long as I talk and you listen, there's a voice and ears to keep it active, moving, and reason to say: look! infinity lives. And when we and the other consciousnesses pass, though it in part dies with us, still it reigns. It will, in a sense, plod on, like a lifeless coffin through its own space, sails set for nothing, unstoppable when trailing its fabric.Richard Ronald Allan Consciousnesses Sayings By Richard Ronald Allan: How would it alter Juliet's love perception to learn the sea is but a rounded
The fun of reading as "an exchange between consciousnesses, a way for human beings to talk to each other about stuff we can't normally talk about."David Foster Wallace Consciousnesses Sayings By David Foster Wallace: The fun of reading as "an exchange between consciousnesses, a way for human beings to
Who can say if the thoughts you have in your mind as you read these words are the same thoughts I had in my mind as I typed them? We are different, you and I, and the qualia of our consciousnesses are as divergent as two stars at the ends of the universe.

And yet, whatever has been lost in translation in the long journey of my thoughts through the maze of civilization to your mind, I think you do understand me, and you think you do understand me. Our minds managed to touch, if but briefly and imperfectly.

Does that thought not make the universe seem just a bit kinder, a bit brighter, a bit warmer and more human?

We live for such miracles.
Ken Liu Consciousnesses Sayings By Ken Liu: Who can say if the thoughts you have in your mind as you read these
To a greater or lesser extent, every novel is a dialogized system made up of the images of "languages," styles and consciousnesses that are concrete and inseparable from language. Language in the novel not only represents, but itself serves as the object of representation.Mikhail Bakhtin Consciousnesses Sayings By Mikhail Bakhtin: To a greater or lesser extent, every novel is a dialogized system made up of
Consciousness will always be present, though a particular
consciousness may cease. For example, the particular tactile
consciousness that is present within this human body will cease when
the body comes to an end. Likewise, consciousnesses that are
influenced by ignorance, by anger or by attachment, these too will
cease. But the basic, ultimate, innermost subtle consciousness will
always remain. It has no beginning, and it will have not end.
Dalai Lama Consciousnesses Sayings By Dalai Lama: Consciousness will always be present, though a particular consciousness may cease. For example, the particular
In good company there is never such discourse between two, across the table, as takes place when you leave them alone. In good company, the individuals merge their egotism into a social soul exactly coextensive with the several consciousnesses there present. No partialities of friend to friend, no fondnesses of brother to sister, of wife to husband, are there pertinent, but quite otherwise. Only he may then speak who can sail on the common thought of the party, and not poorly limited to his own. Now this convention, which good sense demands, destroys the high freedom of great conversation, which requires an absolute running of two souls into one.Ralph Waldo Emerson Consciousnesses Sayings By Ralph Waldo Emerson: In good company there is never such discourse between two, across the table, as takes
Each novel presents an opposition, which is never canceled out dialectically, of many consciousnesses, and they do not merge in the unity of an evolving spirit, just as souls and spirits do not merge in the formally polyphonic world of Dante.Mikhail Bakhtin Consciousnesses Sayings By Mikhail Bakhtin: Each novel presents an opposition, which is never canceled out dialectically, of many consciousnesses, and
Once you have realised that there is no objective external world to be found; that what you know is only a filtered and processed version, then it is a short step to the thought that, in that case, other people too are nothing but a processed shadow, and but a short step more to the belief that every person must somehow be shut away, isolated behind their own unreliable sensory apparatus. And then the thought springs easily to mind that man is, fundamentally, alone. That the world is made up of disconnected consciousnesses, each isolated within the illusion created by its own senses, floating in a featureless vacuum.
He does not put it so bluntly, but the idea is not far away. That, fundamentally, man is alone.
Peter Hoeg Consciousnesses Sayings By Peter Hoeg: Once you have realised that there is no objective external world to be found; that
People are ignorant of what any street clock knows. Why? Because the crack that cleaves existence also swallows their existence-reflecting consciousnesses. Thrown back into existence, the poor souls don't suspect that a moment ago they didn't exist - and only isolated things and persons, swallowed by the crack never to return to this world, arouse a certain fear and foreboding.Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky Consciousnesses Sayings By Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky: People are ignorant of what any street clock knows. Why? Because the crack that cleaves
The way to accomplish oneself as Guru Rinpoche Is all rooted in the Seven-Line Prayer. The seven consciousnesses of the basis,215 While on the path, become the seven branches of enlightenment.216 The result is perfected in the seven absolute treasures.217 In this way, with the sound of this vajra melody, The moment you invoke me, I, Padmasambhava, Have no choice but to come to bless you.Thinley Norbu Consciousnesses Sayings By Thinley Norbu: The way to accomplish oneself as Guru Rinpoche Is all rooted in the Seven-Line Prayer.
As the brain changes are continuous, so do all these consciousnesses melt into each other like dissolving views. Properly they are but one protracted consciousness, one unbroken stream.William James Consciousnesses Sayings By William James: As the brain changes are continuous, so do all these consciousnesses melt into each other
Maybe that was why the French called orgasms "las petites morts": because the things that bring us passion tend to slip past our defenses, to creep insidiously into every facet of our consciousnesses and kill us as ruthlessly, and efficiently, as any drug.Nenia Campbell Consciousnesses Sayings By Nenia Campbell: Maybe that was why the French called orgasms "las petites morts": because the things that
In good company, the individuals merge their egotism into a social soul exactly co-extensive with the several consciousnesses there present.Ralph Waldo Emerson Consciousnesses Sayings By Ralph Waldo Emerson: In good company, the individuals merge their egotism into a social soul exactly co-extensive with
In actual fact, the utterly incompatible elements comprising Dostoevsky's material are distributed among several worlds and several autonomous consciousnesses; they are presented not within a single field of vision but within several fields of vision, each full and of equal worth; and it is not the material directly but these worlds, their consciousnesses with their individual fields of vision that combine in a higher unity, a unity, so to speak, of the second order, the unity of a polyphonic novel.Mikhail Bakhtin Consciousnesses Sayings By Mikhail Bakhtin: In actual fact, the utterly incompatible elements comprising Dostoevsky's material are distributed among several worlds
The big thing (that really good fiction) can do is leaping over that wall of self and portraying inner experience and setting up a kind of intimate conversation between two consciousnesses ... the trick is going to be trying to find a way to do it
and for a generation
whose relation to the long sustained, linear verbal communication is fundamentally different.
David Foster Wallace Consciousnesses Sayings By David Foster Wallace: The big thing (that really good fiction) can do is leaping over that wall of
Write this word deeply into our consciousnesses: forgive! We are bound to develop desires, and to use our will to seek after those desires, whether they be for things worldly or hallowed, for possessions, attributes or the lack of them, and as we achieve our desires, we will find the side effects of each and every one. We will wrong others, for the most part unintentionally, but still, we will err, and others will wrong us, whether they mean to or not. We generally are simply moving too quickly, and judging people and situations too hastily.Carla L. Rueckert Consciousnesses Sayings By Carla L. Rueckert: Write this word deeply into our consciousnesses: forgive! We are bound to develop desires, and
The absurdity of it, the agony and beauty of it, almost brought Jacob to his knees: these two independent consciousnesses, neither of which existed ten and a half years ago, and existed only because of him, could now not only operate free of him (that much he'd known for a long time), but demand freedom.Jonathan Safran Foer Consciousnesses Sayings By Jonathan Safran Foer: The absurdity of it, the agony and beauty of it, almost brought Jacob to his
The winds of potential change blow constantly through our existence altering potentialities until a tipping point or nexus shakes our thread into a different weave, a new existence. It is our pattern-sensing consciousnesses that tricks us into believing remaining static is an option, that this day is like the next or the one before, as if the chaos that change will inevitably bring can be avoided. It's a comforting lie . . .Larry J. Dunlap Consciousnesses Sayings By Larry J. Dunlap: The winds of potential change blow constantly through our existence altering potentialities until a tipping
I believe that there is something connecting us ... Something that was here before we got here and will still be here after we're gone. I've begun to believe that all of our consciousnesses are bound up in that greater consciousness.
...
An animating presence ... [pp. 205-206]
Dani Shapiro Consciousnesses Sayings By Dani Shapiro: I believe that there is something connecting us ... Something that was here before we
Wars, invented and organized by the highest available consciousnesses (do the worms go to war? do the fish? do the paramecia?), are the planet's chief source and cause of torment.Cynthia Ozick Consciousnesses Sayings By Cynthia Ozick: Wars, invented and organized by the highest available consciousnesses (do the worms go to war?
It is quite possible to imagine and postulate a unified truth that requires a plurality of consciousnesses, one that cannot... be fitted into the bounds of a single consciousness, one that is, so to speak, by its very nature full of event potential and is born at a point of contact among various consciousnesses....Mikhail Bakhtin Consciousnesses Sayings By Mikhail Bakhtin: It is quite possible to imagine and postulate a unified truth that requires a plurality
We are all students of the world; frail embodied consciousnesses struggling to understand, and be a meaningful part of this great, mysterious gift of life.Bryant McGill Consciousnesses Sayings By Bryant McGill: We are all students of the world; frail embodied consciousnesses struggling to understand, and be
No one wishes for crisis, but when crises come, they can call forth our best impulses, those of compassion, courage, creativity, and community. And if there are crimes and evils hidden in the dark places of our society and the darker places of our consciousnesses, all the better they come to the surface to be seen, understood, confronted, and healed. If our generation is called to bear a burden of that healing, it is a powerful calling and honor and one within our capability.David Spangler Consciousnesses Sayings By David Spangler: No one wishes for crisis, but when crises come, they can call forth our best
