“Pulling himself together on the border-line of destruction, the independent human being may arise, one who will take matters into his own hands and will enjoy true being”.
Karl Jaspers, Man in the Modern Age
“I am powerful Papatūānuku of the Māori peoples. Any woman’s womb, her te whare tangata, is the house of humanity, and from my womb I give birth to all living things and then nourish them, not just physically but emotionally, intellectually and spiritually. My placenta is whenua, the land, the source of all thought, values and principles”.
Paul Cudenec, The Green One
“The Outsider’s way of thinking is called existentialism. But it might as easily be called religion. It is a way of thought which, like the religious way, regards man as involved in the universe, not just a spectator and observer, a sort of naturalist looking at the universe through a magnifying-glass and murmuring: ‘Mmm. Most interesting’”.
Colin Wilson, Religion and the Rebel
