“The senses deceive from time to time, and it is prudent never to trust wholly those who have deceived us even once.”
– René Descartes (1596-1650)
I am fooled, therefore I am dumb? Nah, too pithy. Anywho, I don’t believe in the gross simplicity of Cartesian thinking, but dammit if Descartes wasn’t one intelligent S.O.B. (son of a Brochard, that is).
