In Uncertainties

When I first read the quote below, it was describing the state of mind that makes communication with alethiometers possible.

But maybe it's the state of mind to achieve when working on anything creative, when accessing the imagination.

Or maybe it's just simply the state mind to achieve...

...capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason...

One of the things I appreciate about the blog medium is that it allows lots more products of those uncertainties out into the world. No editors to demand a particular kind of clarity. No significant structural constraints. Just pure mid-thought thinking. In writing. In public.

Not the easiest body of content to sift and curate, of course. But definitely stuff I'd rather have on the internets and searchable than hiding in forgotten notebooks.

The world needs all the wisdom it can get. Even if its authors don't know its wisdom when they write it.

Note: Maybe not the most spot-on relevant post when it comes to the creation of a more perfect market, but this is the original blog for me, and that makes it feel like the natural place to celebrate blogging.
