Truth can be an intimidating thing. It can undermine previously held beliefs, and it can shake the very foundation that values are grounded upon. One of the biggest obstacles is to not let the reception of truths be stunted by pseudo-truths.
“People almost invariably arrive at their beliefs not on the basis of proof but on the basis of what they find attractive.”
To not develop an aversion towards possible ideas, it seems that one must always make sure that one is not rejecting such ideas on the basis of what “feels” right or wrong. Instead, an ability to analyze data in it’s most raw form must be adopted and practiced continuously.
