Inspirations

“I find it very hard to imagine how we could go from meaningless, purposeless, quality-less, feeling-less, experience-less matter, into rich, subjective lived experience, unless some of those qualities were a fundamental feature of the matter and the energy that makes us up”

Merlin Sheldrake
