Thought for Today  
We can only make noises about "deep reality" -- we cannot make meaningful (testable) statements about it -- because that which lies outside existential experience lies outside the competence of human judgement. No scientific board, no judge, no jury and no Church can prove anything about "deep reality", or even disprove anything about it. We cannot demonstrate that it has temperature or does not have temperature, that it has mass or does not have mass, that it includes one God or many Gods or no God, that it smells red or that it sounds purple, etc. We can make noises, to say that again, but we cannot produce nonverbal or phenomenological data to give meaning to our noises.
-Robert Anton Wilson, Quantum Psychology
