Excerpt from JUST IN TIME:


Here is a strange thought: what you believe is not as important as knowing how you came to believe it. In other words, the process that creates a belief is more critical that the product of the process itself. What we believe is exactly this kind of constant process. It starts with simple information. How accurate that information is we judge according to how much we trust the source. We test what we have been told against our own experience. Is it true? Is it reliable? The only way we know is through critical reflection. If we cannot question what we believe then the process stops. Believing is not being the curator of a museum, but being the artist who creates the painting.
