Colin Wilson Quotes: Now Individual Consciousness As Typified

Now Individual Consciousness, As Typified In Human Beings, Has Great Advantages And Great Disadvantages. Individuality Means A Narrowing, And Narrowness Can Be Useful. It Is Good For Close-up Work. We Have Invented The Magnifying Glass And The Microscope To Narrow Our Vision, Because Narrowness Makes For Precision. But Narrowness Also Makes For A Failure Of Purpose, For Exhaustion Of The Will; For Purpose Depends Upon A Broad Vision, A Clear Sight Of One's Objective.
