    Alan Watts

    "Das Universum ist eine Anordnung, die sich selbst überrascht und auf diese Weise die Eintönigkeit und Langeweile vermeidet, die entsteht, wenn man schon alles im Voraus weiß. Und Du und ich, wir haben uns mit uns selbst verschworen und so getan, als wären wir in Wirklichkeit, nicht Gott. Aber natürlich sind wir es. Wir sind Öffnungen, durch die sich das Universum selbst betrachtet. Oder: Mit welchen Augen wir die Welt auch sehen, es ist lediglich eine Möglichkeit, die Dinge zu betrachten, und es gibt unendlich viele Betrachtungsweisen."

    -- Alan Watts - OM (Quelle: "Handbuch der Chaosmagie" von Fra. 717)
