    “Teach me, chile, and I shall Learn. Take me, chile, and I shall Escape. Focus my eyes, chile, and I shall See. Consume more chiles. I feel no pain, for the chile is my teacher. I feel no pain, for the chile takes me beyond myself. I feel no pain, for the chile gives me sight. —Transcendental Capsaicinophilic Society, “Litany Against Pain”

    'So either consciousness is an outlier, or people always get what they want, or there is no way to explain pain, because pain cannot be explained if it is not what someone wants....To be sane, the individual has to align with the majority, which involves explaining pain away, or leaving it unexplained. But the self-examined life leads to the rejection of these views'
    (- -Nathan Coppedge, Scientific Theories)
