“The subject of consciousness, in order to enter the realm of science, must become the object of consciousness, and that is precisely what it cannot do, for the eye cannot perceive itself, cannot vault from its socket fast enough to glimpse the lens. The langauge of experience and the language of experiment hang like oil and water in the same test tube, never mingling except from the violence of philosophy.”

– Edward St Aubyn, At Last
