"For I have seen so much contradiction and heard so many words, and my sight has scraped the surface of so many objects--this thin but hard membrane which the soul hides behind--that I do not believe anything anymore. I even have doubts to the stability and weight, and the apparent and obvious truths of the present moment. I do not know that if I touch the stone grinder in the corner of our courtyard and ask it: "are you real?" should I believe its reply or not if the answer is positive."
