The Exploration of Inner Space

As adults, we have forgotten most of our childhood, not only its contents but its flavor; as men of the world, we hardly know of the existence of the inner world; we barely remember our dreams, and make little sense of them when we do; as for our bodies, we retain just sufficient proprioceptive sensations in coordinate our movements and to ensure the minimal requirements for biosocial survival- to register fatigue, signals for food, sex, defecation, sleep; beyond that, little or nothing. Or capacity to think, except in the service of what we are dangerously deluded in supposing is our self-interest and in conformity with common sense, is pitifully limited; our capacity even to see, hear, touch, taste and smell is so shrouded in veils of mystification that an intensive discipline of unlearning is necessary for anyone before one can begin ti experience the world afresh, with innocence, truth and love. – R.D. Laing
