What is there to see?

Accepting what can be observed is something very different from accepting what can be seen. Ask a blind person..heck, even a color blind person. A deaf person, a mute person or a tactile inpaired person. The identity is a complex combination of continuous impulses from our senses and the feedback system of our overcapacity in

Anti superstition

To exist or not to exist, is that a question?

What Has Existed before the Universe? The Universe is all of space and time[a] and their contents,[9] including planets, stars, galaxies, and all other forms of matter and energy.
