We are forced to live with assumed “truths” that aren’t factual because if we didn’t we couldn’t function at all. We all live in some sort of rough approximation of the fiction people speak of as real life. What determines the degree of truth of any belief is the degree that the belief allows the person to survive and achieve their goals.
Education is the process of educing or drawing out understanding. Much of peoples suffering stems from subscribing to everything but a pragmatic awareness of self.
“Dream in a pragmatic way.” Aldous Huxley (English Novelist and Critic, 1894-1963)
