Key Messages:

    What does this say about our present condition?
  1. The human mind is designed to see identifiable differences first except in the case of religious doctrine which it wants to see all as one thing. Distinctions in color, size, depth, shape, scent, facial symmetry, vocal tone and pitch, education etc.. are all organizational components of intellectual thought.
  2. We are at the same time creatures of what we've already known. Faced with unfamiliar or threatening data we instinctively try to compare it what is already known. With doctrine however, what we've known has long been corrupted and become something other than intended.
