There is a difference between an intellectual venture and knowing Truth.

Both tax the mind to its ultimate extreme. In both, the mind eventually finds a dead end, a foundation point where it must surrender saying, "This is so, because it is."

An intellectual venture is when it is up to you to reject or accept those axioms — because the results are beautiful or because they are unpleasing; because they are elegant or they are convoluted; because their corollaries fit so nicely into everything else you know or they are just too radical.

Ultimately, your conclusions are dependent upon what you want to do and what you don't want to do, who you are and who you want to be, how you see your world and how you want your world to be.

Truth doesn't await your approval. Truth is something you accept despite what you want or don't want to do.

In truth, Truth is often very inconvenient.
