What pushes a person from knowing something to be true to believing something to be true? It’s the journey between knowledge and feeling that knowledge. The gap between thinking and doing.
To understand this is to know yourself. You are gradually learning the things that shape you and you begin to create these surroundings by throwing yourself in a simulation of sorts.
It helps to make sense of the chaos by having a semblance of control. It’s almost like knowing the real nature of an illusion while blindly believing in its mysticism. Almost like you’re creating a mythology for yourself knowing fully well that it’s all a lie.
A lie told enough times that it becomes to feel like the truth. Faith.
