Inside this laboratory of the mind we create devices to shape the world and help us understand who we are. The deck in front of you on the red pedestal explores color. The device on the green pedestal behind explores time. They are models of our consciousness, which is like a record player gliding needles on the manifolds of the Cosmos while producing records at the same time. In this context, space is what prevents everything from being in the same place. Time is what keeps everything from happening at once. Language is what prevents everything from meaning the same thing. Color is what keeps everything from looking the same.
