Of all the articles and submissions on this site, your outlook on life most closely matches my own. Trying to label ourselves only brings us an imperfect understanding of reality and our place in it. The only thing we can definitely "know" is what can be observed. All any of us can really do is go through life and try to be happy and make those around us happy. Seek the truth, but accept what you do not know. Learn what you can from those around you and give back what you have learned.

The truth cannot be taught, but through seeking can be learned. Ultimate Truth, unfortunately, is always just out of reach. The beauty and the wonder of the world resides in that uncertainty, that little bit that we just don't know. The universe is made of uncertainty, right down to the quantum level. It is our consciousness of reality that collapses the probability wave and makes something certain. I "know" the keyboard I am typing on is "real" because I can see it, touch it, smell it and taste it. Everything else is just speculation.
