Otherness Quotes : pic 001010408

Otherness Quotes : pic 001296541

Otherness Quotes : pic 000176536
Awareness of the self is more acutely at the heart of things than it has ever been before.

Otherness Quotes : pic 000666466
Like the medieval cartographers of Europe, who felt one would fall into endless space at the edges of the oceans of their maps, we fear the presumed nothingness of no-self.
