„The Pattern that connects” (6)


Daughter: So what? You tell us about a few strong presuppositions and great stochastic systems. And from that we should go on to imagine the world is? But–

Father: Oh, no. I also told you something about the limitations of imagining. So you should know that you cannot imagine the world as it is[…]. And I told you something about the self-validating power of ideas: that the world becomes – comes to be – how it is imagined.

(Gregory Bateson, aaO S.193)
