“…for no man lives in the external truth among salts and acids, but in the warm, phantasmagoric chamber of his brain, with the painted windows and the storied wall.”( Robert Louis Stevenson)

“There was something awesome in the thought of the solitary mortal standing by the open window and summoning in from the gloom outside the spirits of the nether world.” (Arthur Conan Doyle)

“We all need to have a creative outlet – a window, a space – so we don’t lose track of ourselves.” (Norman Fischer)

“This life’s dim windows of the soul
Distorts the heavens from pole to pole
And leads you to believe a lie
When you see with, not through, the eye.” (William Blake)

 

How intriguing to gaze out of a window when inside a virtual room. What can I see? An imagined view created by computer script! Another world within the virtual world? Perhaps other worlds are stacked up in layers like some kind of abstract sedimentary rock? Now the question is: how to permeate the layers of possibility?
