A Quote by Sage Vasishtha on seed, diversity, potential, flowers, fruits, cosmic consciousness, universe, real, and unreal

In the seed there is nothing but the seed - no diversity. At the same time there is the notion of potential diversity [of flowers, fruits] supposedly present in the seed. Even so, cosmic consciousness is one, devoid of diversity; yet the universe of diversity is said to exist only in notion.

A Quote by Chuck Palahniuk on unreal


The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because it's only intangible ideas, concept, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on psychic, phenomena, reverie, time, attention, memory, real, and unreal

Reverie is commonly classified among the phenomena of psychic detente. It is lived out in a relaxed time which has no linking force. Since it functions with inattention, it is often without memory. It is a flight from out of the real that does not always find a consistent unreal world.

Gaston Bachelard (1884 - 1962)

A Quote by Eugene O'Neill on unreal, truth, life, and alone

Everything looked and sounded unreal.  Nothing was what it is.  That's what I wanted -- to be alone with myself in another world where truth is untrue and life can hide from itself.
