A reflection of reality

To know is not to know. And not to know is to know. Joseph Campbell

Came across this quote the other day “Knowing is the absence of alternatives of other beliefs.” The quote is by Daniel Kahneman, a psychologist and economist, whom I had never heard of; but apparently he is a Nobel laureate in Economics (2002). I have wondered what is the difference between ‘knowing’ and ‘believing’ and could never quite come to a good semantic viewpoint. Anyway this tickled my fancy.

And this brings me to the point of this blog. I have been agnostic in my viewpoint for at least thirty odd years and that is from a god point of view, and over the last twelve years or so from an even broader point of view.

But no matter how much I might protest that I don’t know anything, and many might agree that I don’t, I still have to go about my daily life and I am forced to make decisions, even if the decisions are to postpone making decisions.

This blog is primarily for my benefit, a place to jot down my ramblings, musings and mumblings. Should a passing soul take interest and comment that is fine.
