Just as ridiculous and absurd as the fact that the ancients allowed the ocean to beat dully at the shore twenty-four hours a day, while the millions of kilogrammometers of energy residing in the waves went only to heighten lovers' feelings.
Так же смешно и нелепо, как то, что море у древних круглые сутки тупо билось о берег, и заключенные в волнах силлионы килограммометров – уходили только на подогревание чувств у влюбленных.

In states of heightened awareness I could look back and remember everything about myself; I could give an account of everything I had done in either state; I could even remember my incapacity to recollect.
В состоянии повышенного сознания я мог оглянуться и вспомнить о себе все, я мог дать себе отчет обо всем, что я делал в любом состоянии, я даже мог вспомнить свою неспособность вспомнить.
