„A bizarre sensation pervades a relationship of pretense. No truth seems true.“

— Maya Angelou, Context: A bizarre sensation pervades a relationship of pretense. No truth seems true. A simple morning's greeting and response appear loaded with innuendo and fraught with implications.... Each nicety becomes more sterile and each withdrawal more permanent. Singin' and Swingin' and Gettin' Merry Like Christmas (1976), chapter 5.

Sensations and thoughts do not belong to the "world of energy."
