A challenging, dense and sometimes surreal piece of fiction.

Clive Barker
“I think that God that we have created and allowed to shape our culture through, essentially Christian theology is a pretty villainous creature. I think that one of the things that male patriarchal figure has done is, allowed under it's, his church, his wing, all kinds of corruptions and villainies to grow and fester. In the name of that God terrible wars have been waged, in the name of that God terrible sexism has been allowed to spread. There are children being born all across this world that don't have enough food to eat because that God, at least his church, tells the mothers and fathers that they must procreate at all costs, and to prevent procreation with a condom is in contravention with his laws. Now, I don't believe that God exists. I think that God is creation of men, by men, and for men. What has happened over the many centuries now, the better part of two thousand in fact, is that that God has been slowly and steadily accruing power. His church has been accruing power, and the men who run that church, and they are all men, are not about to give it up. If they give it up, they give up luxury, they give up comfort.”
Clive Barker

“All philosophies are mental fabrications. There has never been a single doctrine by which one could enter the true essence of things.”
Nāgārjuna

R. Scott Bakker
“The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before?”
R. Scott Bakker, The Darkness That Comes Before

R. Scott Bakker
“Doubt begets understanding, and understanding begets compassion. Verily, it is conviction that kills.”
R. Scott Bakker, The Thousandfold Thought

R. Scott Bakker
“Faith is the truth of passion. Since no passion is more true than another, faith is the truth of nothing.”
R. Scott Bakker, The Darkness That Comes Before
