Pretty much it boils down to three building points I tried to supply evidence for:
- The further along we go in history, the more tools we are equipped with in our tool belt to discover truth (little t).
- But our own life experience (along with history's memory) tends to convince us that we, as individuals, are impotent to seek out truth.
- So we act out our lives without ever focusing on the major questions of our existence.
And, I used the film Amadeus as my go-to example. I use that film like an old pair of crutches. I should just be honest with it and confess, "I just can't quit you."
