“E se tutto questo bujo, quest’enorme mistero, nel quale indarno i filosofi dapprima specularono, e che ora, pur rinunziando all’indagine di esso, la scienza non esclude, non fosse in fondo che un inganno come un altro, un inganno della nostra mente, una fantasia che non si colora?”.

Luigi Pirandello

Joseph Conrad
