Talk:Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri
It would be nice to see some Alien Crossfire quotes here as well, unless there is a seporate page for it, which should justify a link to the other page. LeVirus Watts 21:33, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Perhaps the quotes should be organized by the work or philosophical doctrine it's from; Yang's quote goes from Mind and Matter to another example then back, while all the quotes are about nihilistic abandonment of the body/abandoning dualism.
It could be nice to indicate the research or achievement by name that prompts the quote, as a form of context. --220.127.116.11 08:18, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
There' s a U.N. quote I really like, it's exactly like this:
"Once a man has changed the relation between himself and his enviroment, he cannot return to the blissful ignorance he left. Motion, of necessity, involves a chenge in perspective"
- Here's the blurbs.txt bit for it:
##Doctrine: Mobility #TECH5 Once a man has changed the relationship between himself and his environment, he cannot return to the blissful ignorance he left. Motion, of necessity, involves a change in perspective. ^ ^ -- Commissioner Pravin Lal, ^ "A Social History of Planet"
Missing University Quotes
There are a number of University quotes missing. The ones about genetics, specifically. Paraphrasing, one of them says "our genes can not and do not lay out the data for the placement of every cell, but rather what they CAN do is establish the basic patterns that lead to the finished product." The other is the one about "watching a thousand generations marching past being both a blessing and a curse."
Those are good quotes.
This game includes very many excellent epigrams. Let us be careful not to rip off too much. ~ Ningauble 15:25, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
Quotes from People Outside the Game
There's a couple quotes in the game from real life people like Plato or Socrates. Would it be better to include them in the "Other" section, or to just leave them out? --Hagamablabla (talk) 13:26, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
