Ingenious beams of speculation..............

     Well, in an effort to cope with the incomprehensibility of infinite reality, we ever-curious, ever-pondering, compulsively controlling Homo sapiens create theoretical models.  These models are ingenious beams of speculation that we use to penetrate and define the dark mysteries of boundless existence.   Sometimes elegantly structured, usually self-confirming, our models are like the headlights of a car, designed to light our way.  Whatever is illuminated becomes our truth, and we organize our lives around it.  But this light we create can also blind us.   Too often we are blinded into believing that our models are the whole reality, forgetting that they are simply useful fact/fantasy coping devices.
