Any thought, any idea, any theory,
is simply a way of seeing,
a way of viewing an object
from a particular vantage point.
It may be useful,
but that usefulness
is dependent upon particular circumstances –
the time, the place, the conditions
to which it is applied.
If our thoughts are taken to be final,
to include all possibilities,
to be exact representations of reality,
then eventually we run up against conditions
where they become irrelevant.
If we hold on to them
in spite of their irrelevance,
we are forced either to ignore the facts
or to apply some sort of force to make them fit.
In either case,
fragmentation is the result.
