  1. Director of orchestra: Sorcerer who, with magical pen called baton, sketches the glimmer of sounds on the void.


  2. Boredom: when the void comes between me and the world and the nonsense of the universe overwhelms me.


  3. The summit of silence: the silence of nonexistence.
  4. The ultimate consolation takes place when the lady of the last moment - courage - shows her beautiful face.


  5. You are alone, not necessarily in the sense of solitude but always in the sense of identity.
  6. Empathy is not "stupidity" as some claim -- masochism is at the other end of empathy. Sadism is at the other end of Darwinism and we have to coexist between them to avoid extremes.
  7. Monotony reminds us that the world doesn't change, that it's time/eternity simultaneously, an existence and non-existence draining us constantly.


  8. Time doesn't exist; each present moment is its eternity. Time appears when you have it less on your mind; new white hair in mirror, new wrinkle ... For all we are used to, time stops. Consciousness means time in action.


  9. When the sun goes down and reflection remains, such is creation by elder.


  10. I am like a public bus: everybody has something from it, and myself? - nothing. My benzine is my spirit.
