Schlagwort: Dunkelheit

We’re these unbelievably complicated brains drifting through a void, trying in vain to connect with one another by blindly flinging words out into the darkness.
Every choice of phrasing and spelling and tone and timing carries countless contexts and and subtexts and more, and every listener interprets those signals in their own way.
Language isn’t a formal system. Language is glorious chaos.

Randall Munroe, I could care less (, 13.09.2015

[Die Rationalität] ist das kleine Lämpchen, mit dem wir einer großen Dunkelheit gegenüber stehen.

Robert Zimmer, Athur Schopenhauer, Seite 111, 2012

Religion is darkness
