Maybe, all systems
that is any theoretical,
verbal,
symbolic,
semantic, etc.
formulation that attempts to act as an all-encompassing, all-explaining hypothesis of what the universe is about --
are the manifestations of paranoia.

We should be content with the mysterious,
the meaningless,
the contradictory,
the hostile,
and most of all the unexplainably warm and giving . . .

--Philip K. Dick, from a speech in 1972
