Dickson: Probably one hundred and fifty light years ago…
One hundred and fifty, two hundred…
…there were artists in the ant society
Artists, novelists, musicians, painters…
Today, nothing at all
Nothing, like here

The Central Memory…
…is thus named…
…because of the primordial rôle…
…that it plays…
…in the logic-organization of Alpha 60
But no one has lived in the past…
…and no one will live in the future
The present is the form of all life
This quality…
…cannot be changed by any means
Time is like a circle…
…which is endlessly described
The declining arc…
…is the past
The inclining arc is the future
Everything has been said…
…provided words do not change their meanings…
and meanings their words
Is it not obvious that someone…
…who customarily live…
in a state of suffering…
…requires a different sort of religion…
…from a person habitually living in a state of well-being?
Before us, nothing existed here
No one
We are totally alone here
We are unique, dreadfully unique
The meaning of words…
…and of expressions, is no longer grasped
An isolated word, or a detail of a design…
…can be understood
But the meaning of the whole escapes
Once we know the number one…
…we believe that we know the number two…
…because one plus one equals two
We forget that first…
…we must know the meaning of plus.
