There are two roads we can take in life. The first road travels straight and narrow with billboards of "confirmation bias." You are the type of person who prefers the comfort of a belief system that never changes. The other road is far more slippery and harder to navigate. You will find yourself lost from time to time, and encounter all sorts of dangerous creatures who want your head. But...if your persist, you will see sights very few have ever seen.
