“To know God is to know madness. I see the universe. I see the past. I see the foreshadowing that precedes every moment of every day. It’s all there. I see it and you don’t. And I have a surprise for you. I have something to tell you about the future. But we have to see this through to the end.”—Leoben Conoy, BSG 1.08 (via theprancingpony)
n. sadness that you’ll never be able to know how history will turn out, that you’ll dutifully pass on the joke of being alive without ever learning the punchline—the name of the beneficiary of all human struggle, the sum of the final payout of every investment ever made in the future—which may not suit your sense of humor anyway and will probably involve how many people it takes to change a lightbulb.
