IdeaPod – Seek the truth

IdeaPod – Know that you are wrong and seek the truth

It seems to me that Truth is an illusion that all children must learn in order to be able to use it as a ladder to climb past the simplistic notion of Truth.

It seems life simply is what it is.

It seems that our experience of life is via a model of reality that our brains create for us.

No map is ever the thing itself, and all maps can be fit for purpose at particular scales.

No map is useful below it’s minimum scale.

It seems that reality is so vast, that we must use very low resolution maps most of the time, and if we spend our time creating very high resolution maps of very small areas, we lose awareness of the bigger picture.
That just seems to be how it is, and how it must always be, should we expand our brains to contain a significant fraction of the mass in this universe.
