"[The pace of human ecology] is determined by the progress of man's technology... human ecology (economy) is governed by mechanisms of POSITIVE feedback, defined as a mechanism which tends to encourage behavior rather than to attenuate it. Positive feedback always involves the danger of an 'avalanche' effect... One particular kind of positive feedback occurs when individuals OF THE SAME SPECIES enter into competition among themselves... For many animal species, environmental factors keep... intraspecies selection from [leading to] disaster... But there is no force which exercises this type of healthy regulatory effect on humanity's cultural development; unfortunately for itself, humanity has learned to overcome all those environmental forces which are external to itself."

VampireKindred: "To gain a desired prey, a dog or wolf will do things that, in other contexts, they would shy away from: run through thorn bushes, jump into cold water and expose themselves to risks which would normally frighten them. All these inhibitory mechanisms... act as a counterweight to the effects of learning mechanisms... The organism cannot allow itself to pay a price which is not worth paying."

WerewolfGarou:"A closer examination shows that these beings... not only do not damage each other, but often constitute a community of interests. It is obvious that the predator is strongly interested in the survival of that species, animal or vegetable, which constitutes its prey. ... It is not uncommon that the prey species derives specific benefits from its interaction with the predator species..."

WraithWraith: "Death can no longer be regarded as absolutely correct in all cases;"

MageMage: "Evolution has no foresight."

MortalMortal: "Consciousness was upon them before they could get out of the way."

ChangelingChangeling: “Like mortals in all that they fear, like immortals in all that they desire.”

DemonDemons: “If you really want to escape the things that harass you, what you’re needing is not to be in a different place but to be a different person.”

Aldos - “Maybe we are searching among the branches for what only appears in the roots.”

Richard - “Considering how few, and how simple the Principles are, upon which the whole Art of Perspective depends, and withal how useful, nay how absolutely necessary this Art is to all forts of Designing; I have often wonder'd, that it has still been left in so low a degree of Perfection, as it is found to be, in the Books that have been hitherto wrote upon it.”

Teagan - “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”
