Let us be eager to leave what is familiar for what is true.

Dr. Kary Mullis invented the PCR process used in DNA testing whereby a person can be identified from a single molecule of DNA. In 1993, the biochemist won the Nobel Prize for his discovery. Kary Mullis attended the University of California at Berkeley. He claims the inspiration for PCR came to him during an LSD experience. The doctor probably visualized each and every colorful, little shape of the DNA components.
—Mullis doubts that he would have invented the PCR process without the use of LSD. (via untilasinglesolitonsurvives)

- Nothing exists
- Even if something exists, nothing can be known about it
- Even if something can be known about it, knowledge about it can’t be communicated to others
- Even if it can be communicated, it cannot be understood
— Gorgias of Leontini, (c. 485 - c. 380 BC)
I know the place.
It is true.
Everything we do
Corrects the space
Between death and me
