The unspoken subtext of belief is that there is no such thing as truth, but as we know and can self-verify, there is. Why live in your imagination when you have the power to see? How else could you ever know who and what and where you are? How can the prisoner reach outside except by thrusting through the wall? Of course, it’s not your eyes you must open but your mind’s eye.
