"...seen from every position, the erroneousness of the world in which we think we live is the surest and most certain thing our eyes can light upon [...] Indeed, what is it that forces us in general to the supposition that there is an essential opposition of 'true' and 'false'? Is it not enough to suppose degrees of seemingness [Stufen der Scheinbarkeit], and as it were lighter and darker shades and tones of semblance - different valeurs, as the painters say? Why might not the world which concerns us - be a fiction?"
