I like the feeling of agreement as much as I like a feeling of certainty, but they’re feelings, not necessarily truths.

I’ve been on a deconstructive project on myself for a time tongue emoticon One of the hardest things is find proper descriptive words that don’t evoke prejudices in others. I avoid the word God for that reason, as I see the concept of God as a Platonic ideal – and I don’t really believe in a separate reality that’s beyond time and space of perfection, whether that be the realm of mathematics, dreams, Heaven, forms, take your pick.

But I do have things I prefer. I prefer pleasant things. I like the feeling of agreement as much as I like a feeling of certainty, but they’re feelings, not necessarily truths. So, I have to accept other’s people’s truths as true in some fashion and as being quite real; the world of metaphors as real as the world of solid things, as they all occur in cognitive processes within real people and are potentially traceable, and they shape decisions, making their effects on the ‘real world’ quite profound and real – but that’s the pragmatist in me talking. [wow, I must be tired, I’m babbling tongue emoticon ]
