„Rather I prize the doubt
Low kinds exist without,
Finished and finite clods, untroubled by a spark.“

—  Robert Browning, Dramatis Personae (1864), Rabbi Ben Ezra, Context: Mine be some figured flame which blends, transcends them all! Not for such hopes and fears Annulling youth's brief years, Do I remonstrate: folly wide the mark! Rather I prize the doubt Low kinds exist without, Finished and finite clods, untroubled by a spark. Poor vaunt of life indeed, Were man but formed to feed On joy, to solely seek and find and feast; Such feasting ended, then As sure an end to men. Line 12.

„The Infinite alone exists and is Real; the finite is passing and false.“

—  Meher Baba Indian mystic 1894 - 1969
The Everything and the Nothing (1963), Context: The Infinite alone exists and is Real; the finite is passing and false. The Original Whim in the Beyond caused the apparent descent of the Infinite into the realm of the seeming finite. This is the Divine Mystery and Divine Game in which Infinite Consciousness for ever plays on all levels of finite consciousness. 43 : Toys in the Divine Game, p. 70.

„Granted the existence of a certain kind of molecular motion, what is it that determines its direction along one path rather than another?“

—  William Crookes British chemist and physicist 1832 - 1919
Address to the Society for Psychical Research (1897), Context: The production of motion, molar or molecular, is governed by physical laws, which it is the business of the philosopher to find out and correlate. The law of the conservation of energy overrides all laws, and it is a preeminent canon of scientific belief that for every act done a corresponding expenditure of energy must be transformed. No work can be effected without using up a corresponding value in energy of another kind. But to us the other side of the problem is even of more importance. Granted the existence of a certain kind of molecular motion, what is it that determines its direction along one path rather than another?
