I want to know what is real
I want to be right.
You should be more concerned with yourself being wrong,
Than with others being wrong.
No holy wars were declared
Nobody was burned at the stake
For the sake of rival theories in physics.
It sounds obvious, and probably it is.
How righteous you feel,
Does not correlate with
How right you are.
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)
I know that I am wrong in so many things.
The real issue is
I don’t know what those things are.
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.
