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.

“The human tendency to pass unequivocal judgements has been discussed over and over. It is well known that people do not want to see the virtues of their opponents or the flaws of an ideology dear to their heart. We would like to either love or hate, admire or condemn.... The tendency to form unequivocal judgements helps to distort our picture of reality.”
