"An old instructor of mine once said, 'Be able to draw the unseen ear,' which, at the time, puzzled me no end. I later realized what he meant. A head is not drawn until you can feel the unseen side."
"That's what I believe. I believe the universe wants to be noticed. I think the universe is improbably biased toward consciousness, that it rewards intelligence in part because the universe enjoys its elegance being observed. And who am I, living in the middle of history, to tell the universe that it – or my observation of it – is temporary?"
