We know that it is possible to be able to say something that is more than just the truth. We also know that the truth is always our truth. But how do we know what the truth is? Asking our kids to explain the truth is like asking them to explain the theory of relativity. There is nothing more insulting to the human mind than to make somebody repeat their opinion with “You’re wrong.” Truth is always your truth.
This is where I come in. I’ve been trying to figure out how to give the illusion of truth by saying, “OK, I know that this is true, but I want to be here with you. If you want to be able to be this way, you must be able to be this way.” This is where I’m going to lay down my life. The only way, I’m going to tell you this.
I know that everything you said above was true. You said you were going to give me the answers to my questions, instead of giving me the answers to your questions. You have done nothing wrong. What I want to tell you is that you are very right and the only thing wrong is that you are not right. It’s just that i can’t be right, but you can be right if you believe in the truth of the world.
I believe in the truth of the world. But I don’t believe in the truth of the world. That’s not how it is. I don’t believe in the truth of the world because at the end of the day we are all just going to die anyway.
Well, I guess that makes sense. I just can’t help but feel it’s a little hypocritical of me to say all of these things, but I’m sure most of it is true. I would never get to see these answers to my questions. I’d be stuck on Deathloop. So you are right, I’m not allowed to say what I want. I don’t deserve to know these answers, but I don’t have a choice about that, either.
Well, you have to admit, that sounds like the same thing I would say to a friend who was asking me about some of the things I have written. Like I said, I was asking you not to tell me.
No one is as ignorant as you are about these things, but you will soon have the answers to your questions. That’s what I want you to think.
I know you feel that way too. And in fact, most of our questions are similar. Our questions are generally not about knowledge. They are not about the subject matter. Instead, they are about what we want to know, the things we want to find out. Often, this is what separates those who are genuinely interested in a subject from those who are just interested in the questions.
To be honest, when I tell people about my books, they often comment that I am too quiet about my thoughts and that I am a bit of a mystery, because I am often not as open with my answers as I would like to be. Why should I be? I think it’s because I am asking questions, and the questions are not important. I am not interested in what you have to say, nor am I interested in what you think you have to say.
The problem we have is that we have a tendency to only talk to people who are interested in questions we can answer and we often don’t even know the answers to those questions.
