“I wouldn’t mind turning into a vermilion goldfish.”
Andy Warhol, Goldfish
A few years ago, the city council of Monza, Italy, barred pet owners from keeping goldfish in curved bowls… saying that it is cruel to keep a fish in a bowl with curved sides because, gazing out, the fish would have a distorted view of reality. But how do we know we have the true, undistorted picture of reality?
Yves Dubos, 1934-
