I just watched a philosophical piece on YouTube about the Paradox of the Ravens. It occurred to me that there are probably lots of intriguing and confusing paradoxes which crop up when you apply the advanced logic which is the cornerstone of philosophy, and that irritated me. But then I remembered that there are two central threads which run through ancient wisdoms:

1. Reality is not that which is perceived through the five physical senses.

2. The brain is incapable of understanding existence merely by thinking about it.

I’m not there yet, so I suppose I’d better have another life after this one. Can I be bothered?
