Speculation is a species predicament

Letter to the Editor

Goose-stepping is the perfunctory mechanism of loyal adherents to any nation, party or organization. We visually, audibly, that is, sensorially process signals that are then interpreted by our computer, our brain. The brain compartmentalizes the data based on paradigms we have embedded in our understandings. Thus, we are prejudiced from the very beginning of our traumatic existence. We articulate and prosecute based on this simple procedure. We long for reward and acceptance and create medals commemorating our duty to goose-stepping. We are foundlings, wandering the forest of our minds with a hammer, looking for a nail.

Thereafter, when we speak of fake news, we might as well speak of fake everything, for what do we really know? Speculation is a species predicament. We speculate on love, hate, and the myriad ideas that plague our minds and the suffering of others.
