The Sleep of Reason Creates Monsters by Francisco Goya

The Sleep of Reason Creates Monsters by Francisco Goya

I was surfing around trying to make up a fancy-schmancy reason for calling this blog “slumber-powered” and came across this engraving by Francisco de Goya. It’s called The Sleep of Reason Creates Monsters (which is the translation of the Spanish on the table).

As I’m reading more about scientific skepticism, I’m starting to believe that truer words have seldom been turned into fine art.
