Week 6 : Lord Byron Quote

"The great art of life is sensation, to feel that we exist, even in pain." -- Lord Byron

Sensation versus intellect. To do versus to think.



Jarod was given many stimuli through the years, to produce a facsimile of a situation that we could then study and apply the results to the real world around us. In the end, the facsimile of experience, wrought by over-thought experiments, was far too little for the boy...man we had on our hands.

The results of his simulations proved to be troublesome, to be mild, to his way of thinking. In truth, it troubled me, who had believed in the work that the Centre had once done. I could blind myself to the growing number of dark applications of the simulations, in hope of bringing about greater good.

I suppose Jacob would have told me not to be so naive. Regardless, like Jarod, I have new sensations to explore in my life, though mine are brought about by something inherently intimate and internalized. My conscience.

I... would have liked to believe the best.

I just can't any more.

Did I ever say I am sorry that you lost him?

Good.

...of course I tried to help you, Sydney. I do, when I can.
