But even if, as Johnson argues, power and dominance serve no meaningful purpose, they always incur costs. In biology, the cost can be painfully visible. During courtship, the argus cock pheasant spreads his large secondary wing feathers, which are decorated with beautiful eye spots; the bigger they are, the more they stimulate the female. And the longer the feathers, the more progeny the cock will produce. So the more beautiful cocks produce more descendants. That should be a competitive advantage. But the evolution of the argus pheasant has run itself into a blind alley because the most gorgeous cock has feathers so huge and unwieldy that they may cause him to be eaten by a predator, because he can't fly away fast enough. Oskar Heinroth, the teacher of Konrad Lorenz, commented: 'Next to the wings of the argus pheasant, the hectic life of western civilized man is the most stupid product of intra-specific selection!Margaret Heffernan Intra Sayings By Margaret Heffernan: But even if, as Johnson argues, power and dominance serve no meaningful purpose, they always
The very nature of materiality is an entanglement. Matter itself is always already open to, or rather entangled with, the "Other." The intra-actively emergent "parts" of phenomena are coconstituted. Not only subjects but also objects are permeated through and through with their entangled kin; the other is not just in one's skin, but in one's bones, in one's belly, in one's heart, in one's nucleus, in one's past and future. This is as true for electrons as it is for brittlestars as it is for the differentially constituted human . . . What is on the other side of the agential cut is not separate from us--agential separability is not individuation. Ethics is therefore not about right response to a radically exterior/ized other, but about responsibility and accountability for the lively relationalities of becoming of which we are a part.Karen Barad Intra Sayings By Karen Barad: The very nature of materiality is an entanglement. Matter itself is always already open to,
We might think then of rhetorical production as an extended intentional state in which rhetoric emerges from the dynamic, ongoing intra-actions of human and nonhuman entities all projecting toward each other.Anonymous Intra Sayings By Anonymous: We might think then of rhetorical production as an extended intentional state in which rhetoric
We've gotten to the point now where Republicans and Democrats have nothing in common besides being members of the 'caustic caucus,' and we can't get anything done.Emanuel Cleaver Intra Sayings By Emanuel Cleaver: We've gotten to the point now where Republicans and Democrats have nothing in common besides
I think we are making an assumption that that is the outcome of the negotiations. I think President Assad will be prepared to accept whatever the outcome of the intra-Syrian dialogue and the decision of the Syrian people is. But people are trying to decide and determine the outcome of the negotiation before even we agree to start the negotiations.Mohammad Javad Zarif Intra Sayings By Mohammad Javad Zarif: I think we are making an assumption that that is the outcome of the negotiations.
Given that we are all descended from Adam and Eve, genetic defects as a result of intra-family marriage would not begin to crop up until after the first few dozen generations.Hugh Ross Intra Sayings By Hugh Ross: Given that we are all descended from Adam and Eve, genetic defects as a result
I am coming to see that the sensation of the worst nightmares, a sensation that can be felt asleep or awake, is identical to those worst dreams' form itself: the sudden intra-dream realization that the nightmares' very essence and center has been with you all along, even awake: it's just been ... overlooked; and then that horrific interval between realizing what you've overlooked and turning your head to look back at what's been right there all along, the whole time ...David Foster Wallace Intra Sayings By David Foster Wallace: I am coming to see that the sensation of the worst nightmares, a sensation that
Fortunately, the Internet is a really angry place filled with really angry people, many of whom come positively unglued when not subject to the social consequences of face-to-face interaction.Dave Tomar Intra Sayings By Dave Tomar: Fortunately, the Internet is a really angry place filled with really angry people, many of
To resolve such conflicts peacefully in our interdependent - or what I would like to call our intra-interdependent - world requires not just well-chosen words but sustained and unified action.Prince Hassan Bin Talal Intra Sayings By Prince Hassan Bin Talal: To resolve such conflicts peacefully in our interdependent - or what I would like to
I guess I want very much to be recognized for my abilities, for the work I put in, and yet it's still always there - who my parents were. As much as I love my parents, if that was the last thing ever said about me - that I was their daughter - I would be disappointed that my contributions weren't strong enough on their own.Jamie Lee Curtis Intra Sayings By Jamie Lee Curtis: I guess I want very much to be recognized for my abilities, for the work
If you should be walking and, suddenly and unaccountably, smell lavender and mothballs, you may have just passed a corner of Zarenyia's intra-dimensional closet.Jonathan L. Howard Intra Sayings By Jonathan L. Howard: If you should be walking and, suddenly and unaccountably, smell lavender and mothballs, you may
Like a fractal, wetiko operates on multiple dimensions simultaneously
intra-personally (within individuals), inter-personally (among ourselves), collectively (as a species), as well as trans-personally (in a realm beyond our personal selves). Those afflicted with wetiko consume, like a cannibal, the life force of others
human and nonhuman
for private purposes or profit, and do so without giving back something from their own lives.

The great maritime city of Asiatic Ionia, was of old the meeting-place of the East and the West. Here the Phoenician trader from the Baltic would meet the Hindu wandering to Intra, from Extra, Gangem; and the Hyperborean would step on shore side by side with the Nubian and the Aethiop.Anonymous Intra Sayings By Anonymous: The great maritime city of Asiatic Ionia, was of old the meeting-place of the East
Movies which set out to be 'commercial' usually have an artificial look about them-a certain waxlike quality. They allow for no failure, no moment of mistake.Nicolas Roeg Intra Sayings By Nicolas Roeg: Movies which set out to be 'commercial' usually have an artificial look about them-a certain
We're all afraid of suffering or agony or torture. It's only natural in some ways. It's only human, let's say. I don't know how natural it is. It probably is conditioning.SARK Intra Sayings By SARK: We're all afraid of suffering or agony or torture. It's only natural in some ways.
I believe-and human psychologists, particularly psychoanalysts should test this-that present-day civilized man suffers from insufficient discharge of his aggressive drive. It is more than probable that the evil effects of the human aggressive drives, explained by Sigmund Freud as the results of a special death wish, simply derive from the fact that in prehistoric times intra-specific selection bred into man a measure of aggression drive for which in the social order today he finds no adequate outlet.Konrad Lorenz Intra Sayings By Konrad Lorenz: I believe-and human psychologists, particularly psychoanalysts should test this-that present-day civilized man suffers from insufficient
I think of architecture as language, and I look within the intra-communication between architects.Jimenez Lai Intra Sayings By Jimenez Lai: I think of architecture as language, and I look within the intra-communication between architects.
When one set of Jews labels another set of Jews 'anti-Semitic,' they are trying to monopolize the right to speak in the name of the Jews. So the allegation of anti-Semitism is actually a cover for an intra-Jewish quarrel.Judith Butler Intra Sayings By Judith Butler: When one set of Jews labels another set of Jews 'anti-Semitic,' they are trying to
If he can write a book at all, a writer cannot do it by peeping over his shoulder at somebody else, any more than a woman can have a baby by watching some other woman have one. It is a genital process, and all of its stages are intra-abdominal;James M. Cain Intra Sayings By James M. Cain: If he can write a book at all, a writer cannot do it by peeping
Nine out of ten humans killed? And you're not bothered."
A look of mysterious thoughtfulness crossed his face. "A virus can be useful to a species by thinning it out," he said.
A scream cut the air. It sounded nonhuman.
He took his eyes off the water and looked around. "Hear that pheasant? That's what I like about the Bighorn River," he said.
"Do you find viruses beautiful?"
"Oh, yeah," he said softly. "Isn't it true that if you stare into the eyes of a cobra, the fear has another side to it? The fear is lessened as you begin to see the essence of the beauty. Looking at Ebola under an electron microscope is like looking at a gorgeously wrought ice castle. The thing is so cold. So totally pure." He laid a perfect cast on the water, and eddies took the fly down. (92)
Richard Preston Intra Sayings By Richard Preston: Nine out of ten humans killed? And you're not bothered." A look of mysterious thoughtfulness
I do believe that healing takes place on a number of different levels and that in fact black healing can be deepened by trying to heal across as well as within. But it could be that to call for black and Jewish healing without acknowledging the need for intra-black healing puts the cart before the horse.Cornel West Intra Sayings By Cornel West: I do believe that healing takes place on a number of different levels and that
Furthermore, I argue that ethics is not simply about responsible actions in relation to human experiences of the world; rather, it is a question of material entanglements and how each intra-action matters in the reconfiguring of these entanglements, that is, it is a matter of the ethical call that is embodied in the very worlding of the world.Karen Barad Intra Sayings By Karen Barad: Furthermore, I argue that ethics is not simply about responsible actions in relation to human
At the moment when, ordinarily, there was still an hour to be lived through before meal-time sounded, we would all know that in a few seconds we should see the endives make their precocious appearance, followed by the special favour of an omelette, an unmerited steak. The return of this asymmetrical Saturday was one of those petty occurrences, intra-mural, localised, almost civic, which, in uneventful lives and stable orders of society, create a kind of national unity, and become the favourite theme for conversation, for pleasantries, for anecdotes which can be embroidered as the narrator pleases; it would have provided a nucleus, ready-made, for a legendary cycle, if any of us had had the epic mind.Marcel Proust Intra Sayings By Marcel Proust: At the moment when, ordinarily, there was still an hour to be lived through before
But there was nothing I could do to dim the supernovae exploding inside my brain, an endless chain of intra cranial firecrackersJohn Green Intra Sayings By John Green: But there was nothing I could do to dim the supernovae exploding inside my brain,
Man's body had a different shape in the past from that of the present, and from that which it will have in the future. During involution it was approximately spherical, as it still is during ante-natal life, because the intra-uterine development is a recapitulation of past stages of evolution.Max Heindel Intra Sayings By Max Heindel: Man's body had a different shape in the past from that of the present, and
A favorite liberal taunt is to accuse conservatives of clinging to an idealized past. Poor, right-wing Americans vaguely sense the world is changing and now they're lashing out. What about the idealized past liberals cling to? They all act as if they were civil rights foot soldiers constantly getting beat up by 500-pound southern sheriffs, while every twenty-year-old Republican today is treated as if he is on Team Bull Connor. At best, the struggle for civil rights was an intra-Democratic Party fight. More accurately, it was Republicans and blacks fighting Democrat segregationists and enablers.Ann Coulter Intra Sayings By Ann Coulter: A favorite liberal taunt is to accuse conservatives of clinging to an idealized past. Poor,
If we studied any other creature in nature and found the record of intra-species violence that human beings have, we would be repulsed by it. We'd view it as a great perversion of natural law - but we wouldn't deny it.Gavin De Becker Intra Sayings By Gavin De Becker: If we studied any other creature in nature and found the record of intra-species violence
Life is not a matter of place, things or comfort; rather, it concerns the basic human rights of family, country, justice and human dignity.Imelda Marcos Intra Sayings By Imelda Marcos: Life is not a matter of place, things or comfort; rather, it concerns the basic
Canonical exegesis may be defined as the interpretation of individual components of the canon in the context of the canon as a whole. Even in the pre-canonical period evidence of intra-biblical interpretation is not lacking. In the Old Testament it can be seen how later law-codes took over the provisions of earlier codes and applied them to fresh situations, or how later prophets took up and reinterpreted the oracles of their predecessors.F.F. Bruce Intra Sayings By F.F. Bruce: Canonical exegesis may be defined as the interpretation of individual components of the canon in
When we lose the contemplative mind, or non-dual consciousness, we invariably create violent people. The dualistic mind is endlessly argumentative, and we created an argumentative continent, which we also exported to North and South America. We see it in our politics; we see it in our Church's inability to create any sincere interfaith dialogue - or even intra-faith dialogue. The Baptists are still fighting the Anglicans as "lost" and the Evangelicals are dismissing the Catholics as the "Whore of Babylon," and we Catholics are demeaning everybody else as heretics, and each of us is hiding in our small, smug circles. What a waste of time and good God-energy, while the world suffers and declines. We have divided Jesus.Richard Rohr Intra Sayings By Richard Rohr: When we lose the contemplative mind, or non-dual consciousness, we invariably create violent people. The
This book is about entanglements. To be entangled is not simply to be intertwined with another, as in the joining of separate entities, but to lack an independent, self-contained existence. Existence is not an individual affair. Individuals do not preexist their interactions; rather, individuals emerge through and as pare of their entangled intra-relating . Which is not to say that emergence happens once and for all, as an event or as a process that takes place according to some external measure of space and of time, but rather that time and space, like matter and meaning, come into existence, are iteratively recon figured through each intra-action, there by making it impossible to differentiate in any absolute sense between creation and renewal, beginning and returning, continuity and discontinuity, here and there, past and future.Karen Barad Intra Sayings By Karen Barad: This book is about entanglements. To be entangled is not simply to be intertwined with
For whoever meditates a crime is guilty of the deed.

In fact, the recent increase in intra-firm trading enables businesses to shift their activities across borders smoothly, thereby strengthening the response of economic activity to exchange rate movements in the long run.Toshihiko Fukui Intra Sayings By Toshihiko Fukui: In fact, the recent increase in intra-firm trading enables businesses to shift their activities across
