14 - The Two Major Paths to Knowledge

Apologies for the lateness of this post; a number of circumstances conspired to impact the schedule. Hope it proves to be worth the wait.

There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.  - Aldous Huxley
The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.  - W.B. Yeats
The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.  - Robertson Davies , Tempest-Tost
In this post:

Humankind seems driven to understand the
Universe, and our role in it.

This drive may be built into us by yotzer.

Science and religion/philosophy are the two
main tools we use to reach understanding.
