Beliefs should be like fluid entities within the mind, some malleable and doubtful, others more viscous and certain. But feeling certain should never be confused with being incontestable. Once a belief is allowed to solidify, it becomes like a shackle on the mind, inhibiting exploration, learning and growth. A fluid mind should never allow a belief to be so hardened that it is beyond rational scrutiny. A fluid mind always invites rational examination upon even its most cherished convictions.

“I’m comfortable with the unknown. That’s the point of science. There are places out there, obviously billions of places, that we know nothing about. And the fact that we know nothing about them excites me. I want to go and find out about them. And that’s what science is. So I think if you’re not comfortable with the unknown, it’s very difficult to be a scientist. So I don’t need an answer. I don’t need answers to everything. I want to have answers to find.”
