Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

by Alan Cohen. Every belief system gives way to a greater one. Even science, which seems “solid,” is constantly casting aside old notions in favor of new ones. This does not make the system, the people who represent it, or related experiences wrong. It just makes them outdated. For you, at least.
