Swimming in bottomless lakes


“Our whole past experience is continually in our consciousness, though most of it sunk to a great depth of dimness. I think of consciousness as a bottomless lake, whose waters seem transparent, yet into which we can clearly see but a little way.”

Philosopher Charles Peirce in Vol VII of his Collected Papers.
