— J.K. Miller II

The brain does not own any direct copies of stuff in the world. There is no library of forms and ideas against which to compare the images of perception.

The pioneers of storm, the elect of central Europe. A whole new race, intelligent, strong, men of will ... supple predators straining with energy. They will be architects building on the ruined foundations of the world.
