"Spinoza did not believe in hope or even in courage; he believed only in joy, and in vision. Het let others live, provided that others let him live. He wanted only to inspire, to waken, to reveal . The purpose of demonstration functioning as the third eye is not to command or even to convince, but only to shape the glass or polish the lens for this inspired free vision. "You see, to me it seems as though the artists, the scientists, the philosophers were grinding lenses. It's all a grand preparation for something that never comes off. Someday the lens is going to be perfect amd then we're all going to see clearly, see what a staggering, wonderful, beautiful world it is..." (Henry Miller)".
