As a child I was endlessly fascinated by holding two magnets near to each other and feeling the invisible pressure between them; the word ‘magnet’ and ‘magic’ were interchangeable in my mind for years. Today while doing the dishes I realized that if there is a thing called truth, it is in the invisible pressure that holds beliefs apart; truth is what we turn away from to cling to our beliefs. While beliefs are solid unchanging stones you can hold in your hand, truth is an invisible pressure that shifts and varies according to the situation; a belief can be summed up in a finite series of words, truth must be experienced. This is a very unsettling idea, especially for those who cling tightly to their beliefs; when the stone of this belief is near those stones, the pressures can be enormous. Still, not every belief is connected to truth any more than any stone can generate a magnetic field despite however much the holder wishes it would; this does not stop us from fooling ourselves like moving a planchette about an Ouija board.
