How ironic to enlighten the mind while creating dark patches.

    We have known that the more we understand and learn, the more there is to understand and learn. Enlightenment claims an epiphany of belief, but endarkenment can sometimes be more of an epiphany of truth.

    We must consider what both have to offer in order to develop and break out of the human condition.

    I just realized I have a recurring nightmare about the church building connected to the college I attended. Ironically enough it has to do with feeling lost and there being rooms with files and important papers in the basement. In the dream I am continually confused about time and location.
