The most merciful thing in the world,i think is the inability of the human mind correlate all it’s contents. 
We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of the black seas of infinity,and it was not meant that we voyage far.
The sciences,each straining in it’s own direction,have hitherto harmed us a little; but some day piercing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such vistas of reality,and of our position therein,that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into peace and safety of a new dark age         
Howard Phillips Lovecraft
(1890-1937)
