The Prometheus Trap
The face within the face. The folding of space in upon itself until up is down and in is out. To understand this to invite in madness.
Those who consider the Devil to be a partisan of Evil and angels to be warriors for Good accept the demagogy of the angels. Things are clearly more complicated."
Milan Kundera, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting
There are moments when even to the sober eye of reason, the world of our sad humanity may assume the semblance of Hell."
Edgar Allan Poe
