"Thus God knows the world, because He conceived it in His mind, as if from outside, before it was created, and we do not know its rule, because we live inside it, having found it already made."

"So one can know things by looking at them from the outside?"

"The creations of art, because we retrace in our minds the operations of the artificer. Not the creations of nature, because they are not the work of our minds."

Umberto Eco, The Name of The Rose
(William of Baskerville explains to Adso how he resolved the secret of the library.)
