That would be the beginning of the journey into "reality" - I mean into the way something actually is as opposed to how we tend to view it. We have to be like ravenous tigers and tear the thing apart to discover what's there.


Oh God, Arc, how you've got that wrong. ;)

What we see is what's real. Yes, we can tear it apart and discover what's there under the surface, but this is much more a creative act than you realize. It begins by being unsatisfied with what we see, by wanting more than what there is. And we do things to the outer world, tear it up, so as to create new experiences, new realities, things to give us new truths to believe in. But yes, in the end, they are truths, new truth, and thus we are compelled to accept them.

It is impossible for a human being to go through life not thinking irrationally even if they think of themselves as rational
Also just as irrational decisions are not always bad then rational ones are not always good no matter what the intention

The rating of rationality can be higher and always is higher than the person trying to be rational. Rationality is less emotional than the person delivering it.

I wish I was. Sadly I live a lifestyle of forced celibacy. It wasn't always like this, women used to try to seduce me, but as feminism grew more and more, the love I received from people grew less and less.
