I Have Just Finished Reading My 400th Book — I Still Feel Unsure

Doubt is an unpleasant condition but certainty is absurd. — Voltaire

My LSD Trip

When I took LSD a number of times, it really helped me understand the infallibility of human knowledge and experience. My LSD trips were a journey through 9-hour windows of intense skepticism about everything around me.

Because of my lack of knowledge, I’ve cultivated a habit of reading consistently.

I remember when I was 14, sitting with my pastor, discussing some Christian teachings, and thinking to myself, “How is it that he knows so much about these issues and can talk about it for hours without interruption.”

The more I read, the less I know.

Should We Stop Reading, then?

The question, then, you might think is whether we should stop reading. And my sincere response is an emphatic: NO.

The depth of your relationships depends on your willingness to educate yourself.

There is nothing wrong with having set beliefs. It is important, however, to know why and how you got to those ideas in the first place.
