Lipton’s Journal/February 14, 1955/611

From Project Mailer

The rationalist says: We can only trust objective data, for the subjective is a mal-proportioned exaggeration of the essential material phenomena.

The mystic says: We can only trust subjective “thoughts” for the objective data, the facts, are merely frozen theories, agglomerated habits of ideas which are mistaken for a Reality which may not even be Material.

And I shuttle back and forth, making a hundred trips these days. No wonder my thoughts race like a madman, and my ideas stumble in incoherent spasmodic brilliance.
