Aleph?" I echoed. "Yes, the place where all the places
of the world meet without mingling, beheld from every possible
angle at once
." I tried to make sense of it. "But
isn't the cellar very dark?" "Truth never penetrates
an unwilling mind. If all the places of the earth are in the
Aleph, then all sources of illumination, all lamps, all veins
of light are there." "I shall go and look at once."
J.L. Borges, El Aleph.
