The Outer Limits

From 1963 to 1965, The Outer Limits, an American science-fiction television show, aired on ABC, the American Broadcasting Company. Each episode began with the following opening narration.

‘There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity.

For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat. there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to the outer limits.’


The Opposite Of Courage In Society

Rollo May

Detachment

‘Love of detachment is free from all demandingness, all need to control the loved one, all dependence upon him. It is detached not in the sense of withdrawing emotional concern for others but in the sense of gladly accepting them as they are, not requiring them to be different from their present selves as the price on one’s friendly affection. It is detached, not from caring for others but from preoccupation with oneself, and from the need to make others serve the cravings of the self. It is the compassionate giving of oneself to the world without asking anything in return.’

Professor Edwin Arthur Burtt
American philosopher and author of The Metaphysical Foundations of Modern Physical Science
