About me"Der Mensch ist Teil eines von uns 'All'
genannten Ganzen, ein Teil, der seine
räumlichen und zeitlichen Grenzen hat. Er
erfährt sich selbst, seine Gedanken und Gefühle
als etwas von allem anderen Getrenntes -
sozusagen eine optische Täuschung seines
Bewusstseins. Diese Täuschung bedeutet für uns
eine Art Gefängnis, sperrt uns ab von allem
ausser unseren persönlichen Wünschen und der
Zuneigung zu ein paar wenigen uns
Unser Bestreben muss es sein, aus diesem
Gefängnis auszubrechen, indem wir den Kreis
unseres Miterlebens und Mitfühlens erweitern,
auf dass er alle Lebewesen und die gesamte
Natur in ihrer Schönheit einschliesse."

Albert Einstein

But if a man would be alone, let him look at the stars.
The rays that come from those heavenly words, will seperate between him and what he touches. One might think the atmosphere was made transparent with this design, to give man, in the heavenly bodies, the perpetual presence of the sublime. Seen in the streets of cities, how great they are! If the stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore; and preserve for many generations the remembrance of the city of God which had been shown!
