disinformation | i have met god and he lives in brooklyn . "It's outsiders that, as Thomas Kuhn will tell you in his theory of scientific revolutions, it's outsiders who perceive the big picture in a way that no one else could see it. Like Erwin Schrodinger in his book, What is Life? He was a physicist and he came up with this seminal book that started all the modern biology we know, right down to genetics. Hid did it about 40 years ago or so. He was a total outsider. Outsiders can see what insiders cannot see. Being an outsider is an incredibly lonely proposition--I tried to kill myself 2 weeks ago--that's how lonely it gets, but it is an incredibly fruitful proposition, because of what you can see."
