And then we have my own take on the repackaging. In addition to these abilities, there are such faculties as memory which allow for the storing of ideas. What a non-place to find.
It is an argument that provides evidence that leads the mind to judge a proposition true or false but without a guarantee that the judgment is correct. But even an intellectual understanding can sometimes work wonders to draw attention to the fact that reality is not as it seems. It is a freedom that is difficult to confront — leaving us feeling perhaps that we are cast adrift like vessels in an abysmal sea of emptiness.
