Why do I sometimes think of myself as two separate identities. One spiritual and other not so spritual. Spiritual and rational. Why can't those two go together anyway. In my mind at least. They seem like opposite poles. Rationality seems to degrade the whole experience, even life itself.
On the other hand explanations on how things work and why is so reassuring. I'm sure anybody would give everything just to see what the future is like. Well maybe not, but still, people have a yearning for such things.
