"I don’t yet have a perfect paradigm or a life of many dramas. My life is not a divine spectacle, but instead an attempt at intelligence. So, as it is, it is the things which have a lasting effect on myself as a person which seem most brilliant, like sanity, trying to be immortal, realizing my identity concept, and having stick-tuitiveness to make my biggest ideas into real things, which is quite ambitious." ---Nathan Coppedge

"Here are some of the most misunderstood things (about knowledge): 1. How much it depends on us: really, as far as we are concerned, there is no knowledge without US. Therefore, WE are important for knowledge. WE can be optimistic as far as knowledge, because OUR TRUE KNOWLEDGE CONCERNS US. 2. How difficult it is to create: knowledge is much easier to create than people think. Many things constitute sophisticated knowledge if treated correctly. Many things can be knowledge merely by adding careful respect and critical appreciation. 3. How much of it there is. Many people think there is infinite nihilistic knowledge, but it is more like there are infinite Fall day epiphanies. 4. How deep it is. Many of us assume knowledge that is deep is untranslatable, but in fact deepness is the first fact for communicating knowledge. Deepness is no more than a simple essence. 5. How captive we are to it. Actually, we are the agents of change that decide the knowledge. The knowledge is beholden to us more than we are to it. The biggest strides often happen in a short time by changing our minds." ---Nathan Coppedge
