"Physiologically, man in the normal use of technology (or his variously extended body) is perpetually modified by it and in turn finds ever new ways of modifying his technology.

"Education may well be, as of right, the instrument whereby every individual, in a society like our own, can gain access to any kind of discourse.

"If one had to worry about one's actions in respect of other people's ideas, one might as well be buried alive in an antheap or married to an ambitious violinist.

Aleister Crowley. IMG
