Musings on these things . . .
Information, as in research, data from investigations, records, documents is not the same as experience.
Experience is not the same as information, but, it is information. My experience is information, in a sense, even data, but it's not "Information." Some might sneer and say it's anecdotal . . . they are ignorant of the use of the word anecdotal, mistaking it for worthless, substituting it for a variation of "old wives tale," . . . also mistaken for being worthless. . .
Evidence is endless, extends upwards, outwards. . . we have tons of it, bunches of it, piles and heaps and baskets full of it . . .
We have evidence, we have experience. . .
We have information, even . . .
And still there are so many that balk and cry for proof . . . PROOF!!!!! . . . forgetting, too, that proof is no magick entity that will end it all, for there will still be those who'll argue over that. . . asking is it proof enough? how to you know it's proof? Prove the proof to me that it's proof...
when it comes to the fantastic, the hard to accept, even if it's your experience, no proof will suffice, if you have to deny, even when it's right in front of you, or above you, . . .
