  Everything leads us to believe that there is a certain state of mind from which life and death, 
  the real and the imaginary, past and future, the communicable and the incommunicable, 
  height and depth are no longer perceived as contradictory."
  Andre Breton, Second Manifesto of Surrealism (1929)
