A Quote by Daniel Dennett on curiosity, beauty, humility, and complex

If you approach the world's complexities, both its glories and its horrors, with an attitude of humble curiosity, acknowledging that however deeply you have seen, you have only just scratched the surface, you will find worlds within worlds, beauties you could not heretofore imagine, and your own mundane preoccupations will shrink to proper size.

Daniel Dennett (1942 -)

A Quote by Stephen Elias on lay, litigant, temple, mysteries, ceremonies, dark, complex, lawyers, judges, cabalistic rituals, pretrial, procedures, unfathomable, high priests, priests, and tactical significance

The lay litigant enters a temple of mysteries whose ceremonies are dark, complex and unfathomable. Pretrial procedures are the cabalistic rituals of the lawyers and judges who serve as priests and high priests. The layman knows nothing of their tactical significance. He knows only that his case remains in limbo while the priests and high priests chant their length and arcane pretrial rites.

A complex is a cluster of energy in the unconscious, charged by historic events, reinforced through repitition, embodying a fragment of our personality, and generating a programmed response and an implicit set of expectations.

A Quote by Viktor Schauberger on science, nature, intuition, wisdom, immature, complex, and inspiration

"The majority believes that everything hard to comprehend must be very profound. This is incorrect. What is hard to understand is what is immature, unclear and often false. The highest wisdom is simple and passes through the brain directly into the heart"
