"Human suffering has been caused because all too many of us cannot grasp that words are only tools for our use, and that the mere presence of a word in the dictionary does not mean it necessarily refers to something definitive in the real world"

"It is the mind which creates the world about us, and even though we stand side by side in the same meadow, my eyes will never see what is beheld by yours."
"Without a firm idea of himself and the purpose of his life, man cannot live, and would sooner destroy himself than remain on earth, even if he was surrounded by bread."
It appears to stimulate the bowels. Caffeine is an adenosine antagonist, but I don't think there are adenosine receptors in the GI tract, so I think it has more to do with the its collateral adreno-activity.
By blocking the adenosine receptors in the part of the brain responsible for sleep regulation, it creates a "fight or flight" situation by calling for the genetic replication proopiomelanocortin, and its subsequent enzymatic cleaving into, among other things, adrenocorticotropic hormone in the anterior pituitary, which then enters the blood stream, and travels down to the adrenal glands, where it signals the release of epinephrine and norepinephrine.
