ICI Shelf: Ptolemy

First Line: “The threads of most books can be traced back to any number of points in the authors’ lives.”

Last Line: “Regardless of whether we progress or whether the cycle perpetuates itself endlessly, in the midst of it all remains consciousness, awake or asleep, enlightened or deluded, everywhere cramped and constrained yet also eternally infinite and unstained, just as Shiva perpetually loses the dice game while actually losing nothing.”
