Magic Balcony

“Everyone wants to pretend that he can postulate a magic balcony upon which a finite creature can stand, and from which vantage that finite creature can survey everything in the cosmos that has any epistemological bearing or significance at all. Part of the deal is that everyone agrees not to ask too many questions about what that balcony is bolted to and what the load restrictions are” (Mere Fundamentalism, pp. 81-82).
