“I’m not one who divides music, dance or art into various categories. Either something works, or it doesn’t.” -Twyla Tharp
“I don’t believe anything, but I have many suspicions.” -Robert Anton Wilson
Secular or Religious?
Physics or Metaphysics?
Science or Spirituality?
Normal or Paranormal?
Materialism or Mysticism?
In all honesty, I have very little use for such dichotomies.
Give me an idea and leave me with it for a while.
If I am able to find some practical use for it, I’ll place it inside my conceptual tool box regardless of what label society slaps on it.
If I am unable to make any good use of the idea, then I’ll sit it on the shelf until it proves itself to be useful.
My pursuit of knowledge is not limited by standard systems of information classification.
I am not concerned with the name of the library section one has to visit in order to research certain ideas.
I am concerned with the ideas themselves and the opportunities for exploration that they provide.
I will consider any concept, theory, idea, or suggestion that leads me further down the rabbit hole of inquiry, adventure, and self-knowledge.
So, which side am I on?
I am on the side of those who don’t make up their minds by merely looking at which side of the line an idea falls on.
I side with Emily Dickinson who, above all else, chose to “dwell in possibility.”
