When Cara [Delevingne] and Dane [DeHaan] arrived, I told their agent, "They need to know all this. " I gave them the 600 pages. I said, "You have to learn everything. You're a cop. You need to know the names. " I don't want him, when he meets an alien to go, "Whoa" like this. I want him to know if this guy is peaceful.
Man is not a machine,. . . although man most certainly processes information, he does not necessarily process it in the way computers do. Computers and men are not species of the same genus. . . . . No other organism, and certainly no computer, can be made to confront genuine human problems in human terms. . . . However much intelligence computers may attain, now or in the future, theirs must always be an intelligence alien to genuine human problems and concerns.
The reason why I do not know anything about myself, the reason why Siddhartha has remained alien and unknown to myself is due to one thing, to one single thing--I was afraid of myself, I was fleeing from myself. I was seeking Atman, I was seeking Brahman, I was determined to dismember myself and tear away its layers of husk in order to find in its unknown innermost recess the kernel at the heart of those layers, the Atman, life, the divine principle, the ultimate. But in so doing, I was losing myself.
Sacred scripture wishes simply to declare that the world was created by God, and in order to teach this truth it expressed itself in terms of the cosmology in use at the time of the writer. Any other teaching about the origin and makeup of the universe is so alien to the intentions of the Bible, which does not wish to teach how heaven was made but how one goes to heaven.
I believe that a woman should always remain a woman and nothing feminine should be alien to her. At the same time, I strongly feel that no work done by a woman in the field of science or culture or whatever, however vigorous or demanding, can enter into conflict with her ancient 'wonderful mission' -- to love, to be loved -- and with her craving for the bliss of motherhood.
