The "Nature" of Desire


"Our lives are just one moment

a breath imagined by the senses,

And that moment is a great thought

And that thought is a desire,

The urge to being and to be love.

All at once all together, the same"

-Duane Michals

"I have always felt that a well-developed intellect must embrace both an artistic sense and an understanding of scientific reasoning - and it follows that, fully developed, these sensibilities will, of themselves, ultimately demand their unification"

Evan Harris Walker, from The Physics of Consciousness
