"What can be said at all can be said clearly, and what we cannot talk about we must pass over in silence." - Ludwig Wittgenstein "One can feel unchained from the necessities of time, if the eternal breaks into the temporal and redeems our wasted time and misspent lives. Finite and infinite, necessity and freedom, sinner and saint, body and spirit, temporal and eternal, all are kept in creative tension by faith in God." - Søren Kierkegaard "Man does not exist first in order to be free subsequently; there is no difference between the being of man and his being-free. "If freedom is the being of consciousness, consciousness ought to exist as a consciousness of freedom. What form does this consciousness of freedom assume? In freedom the human being is his own past (as also his own future) in the form of nihilation. If our analysis has not led us astray, there ought to exist for the human being, in so far as he is conscious of being, a certain mode of standing opposite his past and his future, as being both this past and this future and as not being them. We shall be able to furnish an immediate reply to this question; it is in anguish that man gets the consciousness of his freedom, or if you prefer, anguish is the mode of being of freedom as consciousness of being; it is in anguish that freedom is, in its being, in question for itself." - Jean-Paul Sartre "[T]he object which labor produces - labor's product - confronts it as something alien, as a power independent of the producer. The product of labor is labor which has been embodied in an object, which has become material: it is the objectification of labor. Labor's realization is its objectification. In the sphere of political economy this realization of labor appears as loss of realization for the workers; objectification as loss of the object and bondage to it; appropriation as estrangement, as alienation." - Karl Marx Q: What did Batman say to Robin before they got into the Bat-Mobile?
