The Importance of Nonsense


Quantum physics

In Dancing Wu Li Masters: An Overview of the New Physics Gary Zukav says:

“The importance of nonsense can hardly be overstated. The more clearly we experience something as 'nonsense', the more clearly we are experiencing the boundaries of our own self-imposed cognitive structures. 'Nonsense' is that which does not fit into pre-arranged patterns we have superimposed on reality.

[…]

Nonsense is nonsense only when we have not yet formed the point of view from which it makes sense.”
