“Alice laughed. “There’s no sense in trying,” she said: “one can’t believe impossible things.”
“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen.
“When i was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day.
Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
– Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
Belief is a fickle thing and there are so many ways to consider the subject. Some camps would suggest that a belief does not make a reality while another camp suggests that reality is a dream comprised entirely of beliefs. Somehow I can”t but suspect there”s a third option, incorporating both camps. Many times I’ve believed a thing to be true only to later discover it wasn’t, yet somehow, on a very deep level, I realize that the world I see is entirely contingent on beliefs. Too much thinking, right?
