We live in more enlightened times now in which anything that doesn’t accord with rational scientific thinking is dubbed ‘superstition’ and dismissed out of hand. Well, I wonder whether we’re taking the right view of enlightenment.
I don’t know whether such a belief is true or not, but I’ve seen circumstantial evidence that it might be. I’m seeing it right now. So maybe we shouldn’t dismiss it out of hand, but accept the possibility and try to address it with consideration and understanding, rather than ostracisation, abuse, or even murder. Maybe that’s what enlightenment should be about.
