Reminding people what in reality it is all about, giving them a theme on which to ponder, creating a shock within them, pulling them out of the delusion of non authenticity, enabling them to become aware of their true possibilities (1976).

Arctic Monkeys are a great band, but bands like that sometimes spend a lot of time reminding people about the shitiness of reality. I donít want to sing for half an hour, reminding people about how shit Sheffield is ó unless itís for one verse or a joke.

I think anyone who is creative or self-aware in any way, thereís like a humility to it, or I should say a humiliation to it. But thereís also a self-delusion ó the provisional ego, as my uncle would call it. The self-delusion is the thing that makes you go, oh you know what, all the music that Iíve ever loved in the world, I want to be a part of that ó hey, listen to what I have to say, itís really important, itís going to matter.Ē
You canít apologize your way into peopleís hearts ... You have to go full force.

The delusion that one's sexual pattern is The Only Right Way To Be is probably the single most common sexual-psychosis syndrome of this era, and it is virtually almost always the victim's fault. You cannot acquire this delusion by observing reality.

For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination. We learned to talk and we learned to listen. Speech has allowed the communication of ideas, enabling human beings to work together to build the impossible. Mankind's greatest achievements have come about by talking, and its greatest failures by not talking. It doesn't have to be like this. Our greatest hopes could become reality in the future. With the technology at our disposal, the possibilities are unbounded. All we need to do is make sure we keep talking.
