Consciousness is hypnosis... part six

"Consciousness is our only reprieve from Time."
Mason Cooley

"In the consciousness of the truth he has perceived, man now sees everywhere only the awfulness or the absurdity of existence ... and loathing seizes him."
Friedrich Nietzsche

"To a joke, then, I owe my first gleam of consciousness—which again has recapitulatory implications, since the first creatures on earth to become aware of time were also the first creatures to smile."
Vladimir Nabokov
