Genuine love comes from knowledge, not from a sense of duty or guilt. […] Our whole knowledge of the world is, in one sense, self-knowledge. For knowing is a translation of external events into bodily processes, and especially into states of the nervous system and the brain: we know the world in terms of the body, and in accordance with its structure.

Alan Watts – The Book on the Taboo of Knowing Who You Are – (1966)
