A Realization

16Dec10

Therefore one goes from pure science to applied science worthy of La Palisse: a statement of what is visible to the mortal eye (it is always a matter of mortal eyes, hence vulgar and very flawed, even supposing them reinforced by the scientists’ microscopes; and the sensory organ being a cause of error, the scientific instrument simply magnifies that sense in the direction of its error).
Alfred Jarry: The Days and the Nights (transl. by Alexis Lykiard)
