#Idea – Impossibility Dogma / 06.01.21

A fanatic flatly denies phenomena that don’t fit his/her preconceptions.
A scientist accepts the existence of an (…as of yet) unexplainable thing* – and then sets about trying to theorise why.

Much is impossible, yes.
But much is merely written off as impossible
By people who don’t like the idea of it being true.

This is more of a problem when such people are in positions of influence.

*: ideally, it first passes the bullshit test :o)

#Idea – Mandatory Doubt / 05.01.21

I know that I am wrong in so many things. 
The real issue is
I don’t know what those things are.

And so,
I operate on the assumption
That I am probably wrong on most things. 
Apart from the things that I love,
Even though there are things that I don’t love anymore.

I’ve not yet worked out how to square that circle.
