When we wake up and get going, we’re operating under a series of best guesses about how the world works.
We can’t know what random events will happen that day.
We can’t know how we will react until the moment comes.
We cannot know fully the contents of another person’s mind, let alone many other people’s minds, and we cannot fully understand their motivations and needs.
They can’t fully understand our motivations and needs.
We can barely understand our own motivations and needs.
We have a vague understanding of why we do what we do, and our own account of our actions may not line up with the truth.
The full truth of any given moment, however, may be unknowable, and the more time spent analyzing, the further time glides us away from that moment.
We get along with heuristics and best guesses because we have to.
And that will have to do, I guess, until we all become omniscient.
Whenever that will be.
