Pinar is on page 47 of 346 of Proclus: “The philosophy of Neoplatonism is essentially holistic. For the Neoplatonists (as indeed for most ancient philosophers), metaphysics, ethics, logic or philosophy of nature are interconnected and can never be treated as independent disciplines, as they often are today.”

It’s a pity I can’t share proper quotes while reading a print book.

The Theology of Plato by Proclus
"This isn't actually the edition one wants (the one from the Prometheus Trust is) but this is the only one I could find on Goodreads. Taylor's translation, while archaic in style, is astonishing reliable and a good, literal rendering of the Greek that" Read more of this review »

“Let's suppose that you were able every night to dream any dream that you wanted to dream. And that you could, for example, have the power within one night to dream 75 years of time. Or any length of time you wanted to have. And you would, naturally as you began on this adventure of dreams, you would fulfill all your wishes. You would have every kind of pleasure you could conceive. And after several nights of 75 years of total pleasure each, you would say "Well, that was pretty great." But now let's have a surprise. Let's have a dream which isn't under control. Where something is gonna happen to me that I don't know what it's going to be. And you would dig that and come out of that and say "Wow, that was a close shave, wasn't it?" And then you would get more and more adventurous, and you would make further and further out gambles as to what you would dream. And finally, you would dream ... where you are now. You would dream the dream of living the life that you are actually living toda ...more Alan W. Watts
The Lady of Linshui Pacifies Demons by Mark Edward Lewis
"An amazing novel, and the introduction to an amazing Goddess. I am so grateful to have been able to read this in English, and I fervently wish that more devotional texts of this kind will become available in translation.

Kaye is 15% done with The Web of Meaning: I'm really happy that the author figured out a worldview that made him happy, but as someone who is making a lot of progress in actually understanding Platonism, listening to him say it's the cause of all of the West's dualism problems and why the author's scientific interpretation of Daoism is better puts me in a deep state of mental agony about his insufficient lit review. I do not know if I can continue.

Aldous Huxley
“Armaments, universal debt, and planned obsolescence—those are the three pillars of Western prosperity. If war, waste, and moneylenders were abolished, you'd collapse. And while you people are overconsuming the rest of the world sinks more and more deeply into chronic disaster.”
Aldous Huxley, Island

“I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.”

Julian
“Who, I ask, ever found salvation through the conquests of Alexander? What city was ever more wisely governed because of them, what individual improved? Many indeed you might find whom those conquests enriched, but not one whom they made wiser or more temperate than he was by nature, if indeed they have not made him more insolent and arrogant. Whereas all who now find their salvation in philosophy owe it to Socrates.”
Flavius Claudius Julianus
