about reason and vanity

Our psyche is not a product of rational considerations or statistical analysis. We can make inferences by them but they are not our actual experiences. Rational considerations cannot experience the forces that govern us from within. They are a living reality that far exceeds our ability to control them. We can create relationships to them, but everything else is just empty words and inflated vanities.
These forces are at the very core of what we are and the experiences we make of our nature.
