„But this ever broadening factual knowledge, which constitutes objective reality, need not be a desecration.“

—  Albert Hofmann Swiss chemist 1906 - 2008
Context: As a path to the perception of a deeper, comprehensive reality, in which the experiencing individual is also sheltered, meditation, in its different forms, occupies a prominent place today. The essential difference between meditation and prayer in the usual sense, which is based upon the duality of creator-creation, is that meditation aspires to the abolishment of the I-you-barrier by a fusing of object and subject, of sender and receiver, of objective reality and self. Objective reality, the world view produced by the spirit of scientific inquiry, is the myth of our time. It has replaced the ecclesiastical-Christian and mythical-Apollonian world view. But this ever broadening factual knowledge, which constitutes objective reality, need not be a desecration. On the contrary, if it only advances deep enough, it inevitably leads to the inexplicable, primal ground of the universe: the wonder, the mystery of the divine — in the microcosm of the atom, in the macrocosm of the spiral nebula; in the seeds of plants, in the body and soul of people. Ch. 11 : LSD Experience and Reality

„Knowledge is power; knowledge shared is power lost.“

—  Aleister Crowley poet, mountaineer, occultist 1875 - 1947
This has been attributed to Crowley on the internet, but without citation. No incidents of it in Crowley's works have as yet been located. Variant: Knowledge is power and knowledge shared is power lost. This was quoted as an "occult tradition" in Fundamentals of Experimental Psychology (1976) by Charles Lawrence Sheridan, p. 17, but without any reference to Crowley.
