A voice came clearly: Listen! Tell me what it is, if you can, that knowing that knows that you are mad. Listen! And then tell me what you will choose to be: the knowing or the madman? And I heard the voice say to his friend: Watch! Tell me, which one you think he will choose? At least a madman is something to be. Watch! And then tell me, if you can, whether he will prefer that to the nakedness of knowing.
