There are few English quotes that actively change my perception on the world. Marshall McLuhan was an individual ahead of his time when the term "The Medium is the Message" was coined in Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man (1964). Communication mediums, and not the content sent from those mediums, ought to be the primary focus of study. This phrase, when taken to its extreme, has the power to reverse indoctrination, question metaphysical authority, and promotes a unique understanding of technology, economics, and its effects on you.
Including McLuhan's Media Ecology into the Tesseract Curriculum has massaged together a near lifelong existence with digital media in his predicted Global Village. Plenty of mind-altering sentences (ontological reconfigurations) can be found in McLuhan's work, including the Tetrad of Media Effects, a way of studying media and its effects on your perception.
