The world is indeed only a small tide pool; disturb one part and the rest is threatened.

“Pathology is a relatively easy thing to discuss, health is very difficult.

This, of course, is one of the reasons why there is such a thing as the sacred, and why the sacred is difficult to talk about, because the sacred is peculiarly related to the healthy.

One does not like to disturb the sacred, for in general, to talk about something changes it, and perhaps will turn it into a pathology.”

— Gregory Bateson
