"Revelation is everything, not for its own sake, because most
self-revelation is just garbage -- oop! -- yes, but we have to
purge the garbage, toss it out, throw it into a bunker and burn it,
because it is fuel. And what do we do with fossil fuel? Why,
we dump it into a bunker and burn it, of course. No, we don't
do that. But you get my meaning. It's endlessly renewable,
usable without diminishing one's capacity to create more."
