“We are always acting on what has just finished happening. It happened at least 1/30th of a second ago. We think we're in the present, but we aren't. The present we know is only a movie of the past.”
As quoted by Tom Wolfe in The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test (1968) Ch. 11

Bio: Kenneth Elton Ken Kesey was an American author, best known for his novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and as a counter-cultural figure who considered himself a link between the Beat Generation of the 1950s and the hippies of the 1960s. I was too young to be a beatnik, and too old to be a hippie, Kesey said in a 1999 interview with Robert K. Elder.
