…Without the idea of money there would be no purpose in you going to work, anyway. None of these ideas could work unless very large numbers of people agreed with them or believed in them. They require an astonishing level of co-operation. Yet, at no time in your life have you ever been asked if you agree with the idea of money, or if you believe in it or are prepared to co-operate in its use. Jim Baggott, “A Beginner’s Guide to Reality”

The only way of delimiting the Self is by experiment. Go as far as your desire goes, and you will presently find that you have gone as far as your own laws allow. […] Thus, vice too, if entered into sincerely as a means of finding and expressing the Self, is not vice, for the fearless honesty cuts that out. But when we are bound by an artificial barrier, or by laws and moralities that have entered into us, then we are prevented from finding, or even from seeing, that there is a real barrier of Self outside this artificial barrier. Carl Gustav Jung

The man who has fed the chicken everyday throughout its whole life at last wrings its neck instead, showing that more refined views as to the uniformity of nature would have been useful to the chicken. Bertrand Russell
