It all comes down simply to how open or close minded you are.

You can say inabsolute is the only absolute.

…or you can say the only absolute is inabsolute.

They both mean the same thing, but one can grow, and the other cannot. Every last belief you’ll ever encounter will follow one of these two. When dealing with the same information, we decide how things can change or how they can’t and therefore where we will go or where we won’t.

You can find the choice in a world without choices, or you can see how there’s no choice in a world with choices. Seeing is believing or believing is seeing.

Again, both are accurate, just because you are right does not mean the other is wrong. Merely different points of perspective.

Yet… if they are both the same in regards to truth, then how do we fight over the their differences in regards to lies?

A being of omnipotence will never criticize one of impotence because they know it’s potential. Of course they do. After all they’re impotent.

However, the impotent one will always criticize the omnipotent because they see no potential. Of course they don’t. After all they’re omnipotent.

We’ll all criticize this world as this helps us unlock more and more of it’s secrets and we do this until we learn there was nothing to criticize. Only points of our journey that needed improvement.

As long as you criticize, you are demonstrating to the world how much you need to grow, but until you stop, you never will.

There is always more than we know and because of this, good will serve bad, this is true, but more importantly, bad also serves good. Another truth. The only falsehood there can be is in the denial of more truth.

you can only look at the world closely after you put it in the palm of your hand and bring it to your eyes

@fakable There’s a word I don’t like, “can’t”. It carries the same force as the one who cannot grow.

you can, but it's a complicated

your consciousness must go beyond the consciousness that contains the world

@fakable Of course an open mind would be terribly complicated because it considers everything. I agree, there’s always a beyond! Whatever that means will be different for everyone depending on where they are on their journey. As long as you acknowledge the beyond without deciding it, you’re on the right track I think.
"And here is the point, about myself and my co-thinkers. Our belief is not a belief. Our principles are not a faith. We do not rely solely upon science and reason, because these are necessary rather than sufficient factors, but we distrust anything that contradicts science or outrages reason. We may differ on many things, but what we respect is free inquiry, openmindedness, and the pursuit of ideas for their own sake.”

@BlueSkyKing I've never read Hitchens. I hope the title of his book was chosen solely to increase sales, otherwise it certainly seems to contradict the open-minded, fair inquiry he claims to advocate
@daydeeo Many of these writers were motivated by 9/11. If you look at video interviews, he meant it. He took his book tour directly to the bible belt and participated in many debates.
Only the sith deal in absolutes…

Alternatively.. Some ppl are so open minded, their brains fell out..

@TheOneyouwerewarnedabout Lol. Yes, but better to have your brain fall out and travel a distance than to stay in one place sheltered forever where it never knows any distance.

The Left doesn't believe in absolute truth - they don't play by rules and they don't have any beliefs - we shouldn't treat them fairly anymore
