“Everyone creates realities based on their own personal beliefs. These beliefs are so powerful that they can create [expansive or entrapping] realities over and over.~Kuan Yin”
Hope Bradford, Beneficial Law of Attraction: The Manifestation Teachings

Vanna Bonta
“Which came first — the observer or the particle?”
Vanna Bonta, Flight: A Quantum Fiction Novel

Amit Ray
“Beyond the corridor of our space-time there are infinite numbers of universes, each of them is governed by its own set of laws and physics.”
Amit Ray, Enlightenment Step by Step

Yoon Ha Lee
“Schrödinger's cat has far more than nine lives, and far fewer. All of us are unknowing cats, alive and dead at once, and of all the might-have-beens in between, we record only one.”
Yoon Ha Lee, Conservation of Shadows

“I feel as though dispossessed from the semblances of some crystalline reality to which I’d grown accustomed, and to some degree, had engaged in as a participant, but to which I had, nevertheless, grown inexplicably irrelevant. But the elements of this phenomenon are now quickly dissolving from memory and being replaced by reverse-engineered Random Access actualizations of junk code/DNA consciousness, the retro-coded catalysts of rogue cellular activity. The steel meshing titters musically and in its song, I hear a forgotten tale of the Interstitial gaps that form pinpoint vortexes at which fibers (quanta, as it were) of Reason come to a standstill, like light on the edge of a Singularity. The gaps, along their ridges, seasonally infected by the incidental wildfires in the collective unconscious substrata.

Heat flanks passageways down the Interstices. Wildfires cluster—spread down the base trunk Axon in a definitive roar: hitting branches, flaring out to Dendrites to give rise to this release of the very chemical seeds through which sentience is begotten.

Float about the ether, gliding a gentle current, before skimming down, to a skip over the surface of a sea of deep black with glimmering waves. And then, come to a stop, still inanimate and naked before any trespass into the Field, with all its layers that serve to veil. Plunge downward into the trenches. Swim backwards, upstream, and down through these spiraling jets of bubbles. Plummet past the threshold to trace the living history of shadows back to their source virus. And acquire this sense that the viruses as a sample, all of the outlying populations withstanding: they have their own sense of self-importance, too. Their own religion. And they mine their hosts barren with the utilitarian wherewithal that can only be expected of beings with self-preservationist motives.”
Ashim Shanker, Sinew of the Social Species

Christina Carson
“I knew in that moment, we were never meant to surrender our childlike innocence, to trade a world in which we fit like a glove for one that hung on us like ill-fitting hand-me-downs. However, all about us insisted on our membership. And instead of a handshake or a mystical password as entrance into this spurious society, we agreed instead to share a lie, the one that says we’re safe, secure, and fulfilled living this way.”
Christina Carson, Dying to Know

Jay Hosking
“There are just some things that are outside of comprehension, even if we can quantify them. At some point, science becomes magic.”
Jay Hosking, Three Years with the Rat

“Nothing is so small
that you cannot
cut it in half”
Ulf Wolf

Ashish Dalela
“A universe of classical particles is devoid of knowledge because the universe can only be itself and not a representation of something else. If the universe was only composed of classical particles, then there would only be physical properties but no meanings. The idea that we can have information about an object without becoming that object is central to all knowledge.”
Ashish Dalela, Quantum Meaning: A Semantic Interpretation of Quantum Theory

Leland Lewis
“What is a leaf? Just the fact that a single thing exists is a miracle beyond all words. For if you look at a leaf very very closely, you will see that it is filled with wondrous planets brilliant stars and endless space.”
Leland Lewis, Random Molecular Mirroring

Leland Lewis
“...at the tip of your finger; ten thousand suns...”
Leland Lewis, Random Molecular Mirroring

Rochelle Forrester
“The quantum measurement problem is caused by a failure to understand that each species has its own sensory world and that when we say the wave function collapses and brings a particle into existence we mean the particle is brought into existence in the human sensory world by the combined operation of the human sensory apparatus, particle detectors and the experimental set up. This is similar to the Copenhagen Interpretation suggested by Niels Bohr and others, but the understanding that the collapse of the wave function brings a particle into existence in the human sensory world removes the need for a dividing line between the quantum world and the macro world.”
Rochelle Forrester

Alastair Reynolds
“Quantum reality is a nest of snakes, Clavain, and we are already poking it with a very sharp stick.”
Alastair Reynolds

Thomas Lloyd Qualls
“Holding onto misery only brings more misery into focus. All possibilities exist. But the mind has only room for one thing at a time.”
Thomas Lloyd Qualls, Painted Oxen

“A word is a bridge. It is a wave of light and sound that spans the perceived distance between one thing and another.”
Thomas Lloyd Qualls, Painted Oxen

Thomas Lloyd Qualls
“In the beginning was the word. And the word was split into infinity. All words, then, are part of the whole. Just as we are each part of the whole. There are individual words, as we are individual beings. Each word carries with it the memory of the whole logos. Just as we each carry the memory of the whole universe.”
Thomas Lloyd Qualls, Painted Oxen

Thomas Lloyd Qualls
“The moon speaks in slivers and halves.”
Thomas Lloyd Qualls, Painted Oxen

Thomas Lloyd Qualls
“The echo is a gift, passed on to us by our ancestors many ages ago, to remind us of ourselves. To confirm our existence. To remedy our loneliness. Though we must be still in order to hear it.”
Thomas Lloyd Qualls, Painted Oxen

Thomas Lloyd Qualls
“The ears are the eyes of the dark, as the stars are the eyes of the night sky.”
Thomas Lloyd Qualls, Painted Oxen

Thomas Lloyd Qualls
“To work in the dark, you must be able to hold your own light, and still be intimate with the darkness.”
Thomas Lloyd Qualls, Painted Oxen

Thomas Lloyd Qualls
“Alchemy, the masters teach, is the process of linking the spiritual to the material. The alchemist is the bridge between the worlds. It is a process of working inside a mirror, knowing always that in the end, the part will reflect the whole. As inside, so outside.”
Thomas Lloyd Qualls, Painted Oxen

Thomas Lloyd Qualls
“You move into the darkness, wrapping it around you like a heavy cloak. You dive into it naked like a midnight swim, slip beneath its covers and invite it to envelope you, as a dream. You lose yourself in the richness of its mysteries. You start to become the darkness. It starts to become you.”
Thomas Lloyd Qualls, Painted Oxen

Thomas Lloyd Qualls
“To be human is to be whole, but to fail to see this wholeness.”
Thomas Lloyd Qualls, Painted Oxen
