    Inconsistencies are very important for they show where our map of the world breaks down.

    And if we remember the map is not the territory, we can be delighted we are discovering the territory.

    Normally we mistake the map for the territory and fight over the map.

    Geographers make maps and they make different maps of the same territory and so know the map is not the territory.

    So we can take Geographers as our role models and seek out different maps for the same territory.

    And different maps for the same territory leads to cognitive dissonance and emotional pain.

    So if we wish to avoid the emotional pain of learning, we need to believe in one map for one territory.

    And this is called blind belief and it makes us feel good.

    And hey, we all know that if it feels good, do it.

    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
