As he has been and is and, with the Queen
Of Fact, lies at his ease beside the sea.'"

Unplatonic Dialogue

Filed under: Uncategorized — m759 @ 8:12 PM

Dialogue from “The Osterman Weekend”—

01:57:22  “Why did he make us try to believe Omega existed?”
01:57:25    ….
01:57:26  “The existence of Omega has not been disproved.
01:57:28  Don’t you understand that?
01:57:31  Omega is as real  as we need it to be.”
