“In certain cases, you may need to protect yourself or someone else from being harmed by another, but be aware of making it your mission to “eradicate evil,” as you are likely to turn into the very thing you are fighting against.”—Eckhart Tolle (via lucifelle)
“To find out what higher dimensions might look like, all we have to do is study the relationship between our 3-D world and the 2-D comics. A 4-D creature could look “down” on us through our walls, our clothes, even our skeletons. Our world would be a Cubist X-ray, and perhaps even our thoughts might be laid bare to their gaze.
As comics readers gazing down from a higher dimension perpendicular to the page surface, we can actually peer inside our characters’ thoughts with balloons or captions that provide running commentary. We can also control time in a comics universe. We can stop on page 12 and look back to page 5 to check a story point we missed. The characters themselves continue to act out their own dramas in the same linear sequence, oblivious to our shifting perspective. They can go back in time only with the help of supermachines, like the Flash’s cosmic treadmill, but we can look at 1928 Superman next to 1999 Superman without colliding the two stories anywhere but in our heads.”—Grant Morrison, Supergods (via lucifelle)
