Ludwig Wittgenstein once said that names are the only things that exist in the world. Maybe that's true, but the problem is that as time passes by, names do not remain the same - even if they don't change.More Victor Pelevin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There's a scientific hypothesis that every person's name is a primary suggestive command that contains the entire script of their life in highly concentrated form. . . . According to this point of view, there is only a limited number of names, because society only needs a limited number of human types.

If you pick up fools, you'll turn into a fool yourself.More Victor Pelevin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Death just means the replacement of the usual morning waking with something else, something quite impossible even to think about. We don't even have the instrument to do it, because our mind & our world are the same thing.More Victor Pelevin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
