…into the rabbit hole of meta-psychological explanations. Of course, I don’t know that anything is actually what it appears to be – there must always be a certain amount of epistemological abbreviation and an associated leap-of-faith. The senses and information vectors through which we are furnished the impressions with which we construct our world and with which we attribute meaning to things – we can not necessarily trust these as true or valid and consistent. The introduction of authentic epistemological doubt removes any yes/no binary certainty and calls into question everything, including this statement and all semantic trickery like it. Finding ourselves not so much imprisoned as set free by a shadowy and indistinct world of probability, complexity and uncertainty is in some way strangely comforting.
