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.

“We are trained to think that the way things are for us are the way things should be. One of the great things about travel is to go somewhere else and find out that what you assume is natural is not so natural in other places. That's part of opening your mind to reality. And I think science, ultimately, does that most effectively. It forces you to realize that the way you thought the universe should be is not necessarily the way it is.”

—Lawrence Krauss
