Outside the Maze


“There is a strange urge in my mind: I would like to stop behaving as if I am a rat pressing levers – even if I have to give up the cheese and go hungry for a while. I would like to step outside the conditioning maze and see what makes it tick. I wonder what I would find. Perhaps a terrible superhuman monstrosity the very contemplation of which would make a person insane? Perhaps a solemn gathering of sages? Or the maddening simplicity of unattended clockwork?”

–– Jacques Vallee, Dimensions, 1988
