Mortan Feldman: John, wouldn’t you say that what we’re dependent on, we call reality, and what we don’t like, we consider an intrusion in our life? Consequently, I feel that what’s happening is that we’re continually being intruded upon.
John Cage: But that would make us very unhappy.
Feldman: Or we surrender to it, and call it culture.
Cage: Call it culture?
Feldman: Or whatever.
