George Saunders

‘If we look at ourselves, we’re kind of set up to be these little Darwinian survivors. So we’re given this really cool sensory apparatus, and a brain, and everything. And you know, that stuff is there to help us propagate the species. And the intersection between our perceptions, and understanding, and what’s actually true are pretty small and pretty occasional. There’s a whole bunch of stuff out there that is beyond our grasp.’ (from the New York Times)
