Wow, I’m so amazed.

I entertained an alternative hypothesis about something, and everything fell into place.

The sad thing is that it took me THIS long to entertain it. and it was NOT a difficult hypothesis to entertain at all. Yet, it just conflicted with some WEIRD belief of mine, a belief that wasn’t EVEN strong. The truth is, that I eventually assumed the STRONGER version of the belief – the version i was more reluctant to accept (and ALSO the version that was more absurd to begin with – i was also
EMBARRASSED to believe that i could think or even BELIEVE such thoughts). this stronger version then later turned into a WEAKER version of the same hypothesis (by WEAKER, I mean that the basic ASSUMPTIONS of it were weaker). And everything then really DID fall into place. I need to note this. Damn it, this could explain one reason why crazier people CAN be more creative. you know, crazy things like dyson spheres and all that. EVEN the discovery of benzene’s chemical structure may have started out with a brief attempt to simply entertain that extremely crazy hypothesis.
