“The stronger a person's "I" is, the smaller his capacity to become one with anybody. The "I" is a wall in between; it proclaims itself. Its proclaimation is : "You are you and I am I. There is a distance between the two." Then no matter how much "I" love you, "I" may embrace you to my bosom, still we are two. No matter how closely we meet, still there is a gap in between - I am me and you are you. That is why even the most intimate experiences fail to bring people close. Bodies sit close to each other but the persons remain far away. As long as there is the "I" inside the sense of "the other" cannot be destroyed.
Sartre has made a wonderful statement: "The other is hell." But he didn't explain why the other is "the other." The other is "the other" because I am "I". And as long as I am "I," the world around is "the other" - separate and apart. And as long as there is separateness there can be no experience of love.”
“If the big one sneezes, the smaller ones get pneumonia, ... It's too early to tell with Horizon, but don't look for too much right now. Based on current market conditions, I wouldn't look for any big pop.”
“You have a large vortex spinning around, with a smaller one inside. The large vortex has a shearing effect on the smaller one, like cake batter being stirred. The large-scale vortex acts like a giant mixer, stretching and thinning out the smaller one, transferring its energy into the larger vortex. The large-scale vortex actually acts like a vampire, sucking the energy out of the smaller one.”
“I can see where it could be costly for some towns, especially the smaller ones. I think you need to ask yourself how much is the demand. I think bigger communities should offer it over the Internet, but I'm not sure every community should be required to.”
