In more pensive times we wonder . . .
Why we are? Why we are like we are? Who we are? And similar questions that apparently have no answers. They are mysteries that have no explanation.
Events happen, circumstances change, life evolve. New questions arise and end up just being piled onto the mound of questions that came before. The answers to which remain just as obscure.
We try to answer those unknowns with the limited mechanism inside our skulls, adding more uncertainty as we go.
Taking a more broad view of the situation we sort of ‘see’ that this whole mysterious playground is nothing but a crazy abstraction of minute, vibrating particles that seems to be beyond human reasoning.
As a final compounding factor, no ‘thing’ is identical to any other thing. We are all unique. Everything is unique.
And yet, some folks claim to know ‘truths’ that apply to everything, everywhere, and at all times.
From where do they get this amazing power of understanding?
