Quoted from Piranesi

The search for Knowledge has encouraged us to think of the House as if it were a sort of riddle to be unravelled, a text to be interpreted, and that if it ever we discover the Knowledge, then it will be as if the Value has been wrested from House and all that remains will be mere scenery.
