"The universe contains a maybe"
- Robert Anton Wilson
"Question everything. Learn something. Answer nothing."
"I do not pretend to tell what is absolutely true, but what I think is true."
- Robert Ingersoll
Inspired by this quote from Rob Breszny's excellent book Pronoia:
"Objection, evasion, joyous distrust, and love of irony are signs of health. Everything absolute belongs to pathology." So proclaimed Friedrich Nietzsche in Beyond Good and Evil. Note well that he used the adjective "joyous" to describe distrust, not "cynical" or "grumbling" or "sour." The key to remaining vital and strong while questioning every so-called absolute is to cultivate a cheerful, buoyant mood as you do it.This is a key point in Robert Anton Wilson's book Quantum Psychology for which there is currently an online reading group going on over at Tom Jackson's excellent blog RAWillumination.net, check it out.
