"By observing in yourself the appearance and the disappearance of consciousness you will inevitably see... that moments of consciousness are very short and are separated by long intervals of completely unconscious, mechanical working of the machine."
- George Gurdjieff

"Look, we inadvertently slip back from what we have labored to attain into routines we never intended, where we weakly struggle, as in a dream, and die there without ever waking."
- Rilke
