Toward Practicing Theory

This is what we know: We want to know why because, in theory, there are potentially definitive conclusions we could reach in any given field through a method of logic and reasoning which could potentially make sense to and / or benefit those of us who wish to learn, to know, to feel we have and are progressing toward a better understanding of ourselves and our place in the universe.

But any question’s answer might not be worth the lesson, as more questions often arise and the theory itself evolves as our perception of time shrinks into itself like an accordion toward its inevitable conclusion, and that awful sound of shrieking air. Knowing is not as important as imagining we could know, or knowing we know things we believe we know despite evidence, which is nothing but a what.

Why is unanswerable, and that’s precisely why we ask it.

Also, I'm full of shit...
