“False data can cause one to make stupid mistakes. It can even block one from absorbing true data.

“One can solve the problems of existence only when he has true data.

“If those around one lie to him or her, one is led into making errors and his survival potential is reduced.

“False data can come from many sources: academic, social, professional.

“Many want you to believe things just to suit their own ends.

“What is true is what is true for you.  No one has any right to force data on you and command you to believe it or else. If it is not true for you, it isn’t true.

“Think your own way through things, accept what is true for you, discard the rest. There is nothing unhappier than one who tries to live in a chaos of lies.”

  1. Yes solid foundations cannot be built on false data. But the worst thing is not even to know you are operating on false data.

    At least when you create an effect and you get back the lies and the falsehoods you know then to discard those and move on with what you have which is a real solid foundation.
