The Politics of Experience

“I am a specialist, God help me,
in events in inner space and time,
in experiences called thoughts,
images, reveries, memories, dreams,
visions, hallucinations,
dreams of memories,
memories of visions,
dreams of hallucinations,
refractions of refractions of refractions of that
original Alpha and Omega of experience and reality,
that Reality on whose repression, denial, splitting, projection,
falsification, and general desecration and profanation our civilization
as much as on anything is based.”

“We live equally out of our bodies, and out of our minds.
Concerned as I am with this inner world, observing day in and
day out its devastation, I ask why this has happened?”

-The Politics Of Experience by R. D. LAING
