Oliver Sacks

I like this guy. His most famous book is ”The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat”

“We speak not only to tell other people what we think, but to tell ourselves what we think. Speech is a part of thought.”

“Waking consciousness is dreaming – but dreaming constrained by external reality”

“…when the brain is released from the constraints of reality, it can generate any sound, image, or smell in its repertoire, sometimes in complex and “impossible” combinations”.”

“The pleasure we obtain from music comes from counting, but counting unconsciously. Music is nothing but unconscious arithmetic.”

~ Oliver Sacks

About

Generally just Being. Nothing in particular, no claims to fame. I like gardening and the sea, nature, art in all forms from poetry to films and everything in between, and being in the company of my family.

''I am all pervasive. I am without any attributes, and without any form. I have neither attachment to the world, nor to liberation. I have no wishes for anything because I am everything, everywhere, every time, always in equilibrium. I am indeed, That eternal knowing and bliss, Shiva, love and pure consciousness.''
