Number Nineteen

We don't want knowledge; we want confirmation of what we already know.  We want belief, fixed and immutable.

Belief constructs reality to satisfy our needs and fears.  Belief is the selective process of seeing and not seeing, of ignoring what is frightening and uncomfortable in favor of what is comforting and validating.  Hope and fear supercharge belief to make it absolute.

Knowledge is not absolute.  It forever expands, assimilates, changes.  It is the truth right now -- in this place, from this vantage, under this sky, between these souls.
