Laws of Form

"We may take it that the world
is undoubtedly itself
[i.e., is indistinct from itself],
but, in any attempt to
see itself, as an object,
it must, equally,
undoubtedly act so as
to make itself distinct from
and therefore false to itself.

In this sense,
in respect to its own information,
the universe must expand to
escape the telescopes through
which we, who are it,
are trying to capture it,
which is us."

- G. Spencer Brown (1923 - 2016)
