“Perhaps they saw what their minds were instructed to see, because the human brain is not equipped to see War, Famine, Pollution, and Death when they don’t want to be seen, and has got so good at not seeing that it often manages not to see them even when they abound on every side.”

“GOOD MORNING.

Vimes blinked. A tall dark robed figure was now sitting in the boat.

‘Are you Death?’

IT’S THE SCYTHE, ISN’T IT? PEOPLE ALWAYS NOTICE THE SCYTHE.

‘I’m going to die?’

POSSIBLY.

‘Possibly? You turn up when people are possibly going to die?’

OH, YES. IT’S QUITE THE NEW THING. IT’S BECAUSE OF THE UNCERTAINTY PRINCIPLE.

‘What’s that?’

I’M NOT SURE.

‘That’s very helpful.”

I THINK IT MEANS PEOPLE MAY OR MAY NOT DIE. I HAVE TO SAY IT’S PLAYING HOB WITH MY SCHEDULE, BUT I TRY TO KEEP UP WITH MODERN THOUGHT.”

SQUEAK.

And this, Mr Pounder understood with absolute rodent clarity, meant: Reincarnation believes in you.”

Вот не знаю почему, а это меня очень рассмешило. Ну, в блоге Загрязнения это смотрится и правда к месту, хотя с первой частью я тогда не согласна. Сомневаюсь, что его можно назвать "бесполезным". :rolleyes:

Because stories are important.



People think that stories are shaped by people. In fact, it’s the other way around.


Stories exist independently of their players. If you know that, the knowledge is power.


Stories, great flapping ribbons of shaped space-time, have been blowing and uncoiling around the universe since the beginning of time. And they have evolved. The weakest have died and the strongest have survived and they have grown fat on the retelling … stories, twisting and blowing through the darkness.


And their very existence overlays a faint but insistent pattern on the chaos that is history. Stories etch grooves deep enough for people to follow in the same way that water follows certain paths down a mountainside. And every time fresh actors tread the path of the story, the groove runs deeper.


This is called the theory of narrative causality and it means that a story, once started, takes a shape. It picks up all the vibrations of all the other workings of that story that have ever been.


This is why history keeps on repeating all the time.


So a thousand heroes have stolen fire from the gods.

“‘But there are causes worth dying for,’ said Butterfly.

‘No, there aren’t! Because you’ve only got one life but you can pick up another five causes on any street corner!’

‘Good grief, how can you live with a philosophy like that?’

Rincewind took a deep breath.

‘Continuously!’”
