We must learn to doubt, and so doubting becomes doubtful.

This process not only becomes manifest in language—the circularity of the above statement becomes almost comical—but also in the knowledge of our senses.  Escher remains delightful because his work takes us back to when we delighted in illusion.

What fascinates me more is how much—without questioning—we do such epistemology.

Consciousness is forever eating its own tail.
