The name of the rose

I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma,
a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt
to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

-- Umberto Eco

  1. the underlying truth is those great nipples above

  2. "If there's no meaning in it," said the King, "that saves a world of trouble, you know, as we needn't try to find any".
    "And yet I don't know", he went on, "I seem to see some meaning in it, after all".
    The Reverend Lewis Carroll in Alice in Wonderland.

    But Umberto Eco is right: and that's way all philosophical systems have miserably failed.
