Danged Notions AboutArchive

My First Post

Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

I have mused about starting a blog for many years, but the motivation to just start has never seemed to strike.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

So I’ll start with a dedication. I dedicate this blog to the Truth, whatever it may be, wherever the search leads me.

I seem, then, in just this little thing to be wiser than this man at any rate, that what I do not know I do not think I know either.

And because I know almost nothing, and I am wrong about almost everything I do know, I resolve to be charitable to the ideas of others, as I hope you will be to me.

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

And because charity is especially difficult when our survival response is stimulated, I will be especially attentive to fearful symmetry. The Others have that all too human response too.

And yet it moves.

I will now proceed to go violate these ideals. I hope you will enjoy what you read, and perhaps gain a pinch of enlightenment along the way.

All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
