    Skepticism and the Suspension of Disbelief

    Perhaps we can balance skepticism with the suspension of disbelief.

    When we exercise, the recovery period is as important as the exercise, so when we are skeptical the suspension of disbelief is as important as the skepticism.

    So the suspension of disbelief is the recovery period of the rigours of skepticism

    And the suspension of disbelief gives us everything from movies, art, sculpture, dance, music, ritual, literature and religion.

    And indeed the suspension of disbelief gives us something to be skeptical about.

    So perhaps suspension and skepticism are two sides of the same coin.
