Often I have wondered if the human mind could survive an instant comprehension of all truth, all reality.
However, when dealing with any degree of infinity, our minds fall short. Consider a teacup: It is finite, and so is the ocean. Yet the teacup—which I liken to the human mind—cannot contain even the finite ocean. So how is the mind to contain the infinity of truth?
But we humans carry the spirit of Odysseus. We push onward. We cannot help but try.
