What do we know? Everything we believe – without exception – is not what we think it is. Everything we think we know is merely a bubble poised to burst at any moment – and then what we thought we knew reveals itself as something very different – if not false altogether – or shrinks to become but a small piece of a new, larger bubble – poised to burst at any moment: “Earth is the center of the Universe”; “all reality is material”; “till death do us part”; “butter is bad for you”; “the science is settled”; “Yes Virginia, there is no Santa Claus”. As such, nothing is completely ‘true’ – which renders life as simply an ethereal adventure of endlessly unpeeling the Infinite Onion – or so it seems at this Moment…..
“Concepts, universes, and reality itself begin with the inconceivable, a fact not easy to live with.” – Reality Gets An Unlikely Savior: Infinity – Deepak Chopra, MD and Menas Kafatos PhD

“What then is truth? A movable host of metaphors, metonymies, and anthropomorphisms: in short, a sum of human relations which have been poetically and rhetorically intensified, transferred, and embellished, and which, after long usage, seem to a people to be fixed, canonical, and binding. Truths are illusions which we have forgotten are illusions.” – Frederich Neitzsche
