Consistency

I’d like to think I’m a permanent disagree-er.

Maybe this stems from the fact that I am never entirely convinced there is only one side to the story, because of course, there isn’t.

Facts need an observer to be called a fact. Truth is only available in a temporary state, and often no more than just a state of mind.

And yet.

Sometimes I come across words by others which give the illusion to be permanent truth. And I find myself agreeing.

It provides comfort, consistency with one’s own thoughts, however in this case it’s rather… ironic.

“Too much consistency is as bad for the mind as it is for the body. Consistency is contrary to nature, contrary to life. The only completely consistent people are the dead.” Aldous Huxley
