Commentary on ‘Seeking’

⭐️Note: This is a follow up entry for “Art Mini- Seeking” which was published about two weeks ago.

There are some ways in which I don’t think I should be explaining this, but I know that some of the people with whom I may be sharing this blog soon will wonder, so here goes:

I am not saying that truth does not exist; this is, instead, a commentary on how hard it is to find truth. The more I learn about a topic, the more questions I have, and in essence, the more that I learn, the more that I realize I don’t know about the topic. It’s not just me- for example, we thought that atoms were the smallest unit of matter in existence, but we have found smaller particles, like quarks. There may be even smaller ones too, but I’m a bit behind on my atomic science. The point is that when we make absolute statements, we end up being wrong fairly often.

This is paticularly difficult for me now, because I am trying to understand very intangible things like my coping responses and the nature of God. It’s probably not too surprising that each step forward just leads me to more questions and each question to more mysteries and on and on through the warren.

So it’s not that I don’t believe in truth. It’s just that I want it to be neat and tidy, but it really, really isn’t.

I apologize if this entry ruins something for someone- I know that some people really prefer their own interpretations of art, music, poetry, and stories. Please feel free to keep your head canon in tact. It’s ok.
