Often we have a lot invested in our myths and self-delusions.

Well said Archer ;-) SO SO accurate


Yes, Acher, you hit the nail on the head

I wonder if sometimes when we discover the reason for things...we find out that certain things "aren't so". Always follow the money if you want the reasons and the truth.

I see men ordinarily more eager to explain things so that others will believe what is not so.
