Respect.

Quote of the Day:

Science is perhaps the most effective tool that human consciousness has yet developed with which to explore the outer universe, and yet this polished and sophisticated instrument of scrutiny is hindered by one glaring blind-spot in that it cannot examine consciousness itself.

Quote of the Day:

I see no wisdom in the eagerness to be found and approached by any intelligence with the ability to accomplish it from any sector of space. In the meetings between 'discoverers' and 'discoverees,' history has always given the advantage to the finders... My point is, who will come a-knocking - the trader or the tiger?

Consider yourself a Grailer? We're stuck just short of half-way to our funding goal - you can help us out by becoming a supporter of the Grail for as little as $1/month, or by offering assistance in other ways. We'll put you in the draw to win some very cool stuff, including signed gear from the mighty Tool, and the illustrious Alan Moore!

Thanks to @gordon_white and Mark Foster.

Quote of the Day:

People think that fascism arrives in fancy dress worn by grotesques and monsters as played out in endless re-runs of the Nazis.

Fascism arrives as your friend. It will restore your honour, make you feel proud, protect your house, give you a job, clean up the neighbourhood, remind you of how great you once were, clear out the venal and the corrupt, remove anything you feel is unlike you.

It doesn't walk in saying, our programme means militias, mass imprisonments, transportations, war and persecution.

“He who wonders discovers that this in itself is wonder.”

Quote of the Day:

“As far as I know, there is no proof whatever of the existence of an objective reality apart from our senses, and I do not see why we should accept the outside world as such solely by virtue of our senses.”
