Two Quotes

“Language is simply the cheapest tool for carving up space and time.” -Sheldon Pacotti (quoted here)

“The paper ship dominates our age,” he notes. “It is the nature of the ship to float and tear and turn like a page. A certain formality obtains on these vessels. Once elaborated, they are able to anticipate the dangers of the enhanced relaxation required in thought travel. The vicissitudes of associated movement through imagined space are survivable only as a result of the collaboration of beings who doubt each other’s existence while depending on each other for their livelihoods. Group travel by this kind of consensus is so dangerous as to be considered impossible by some and by others not to be happening even while it is occurring.” -Laura Moriarty, from Ultravioleta, one of the best speculative novels (?) I’ve read in awhile.
