STATEMENT: A disappearance of the source. That which we believe or attempt to prove may never include an origin. The present predicts a past but does not prove it. A presence suggests a source but does not reveal it. An absence dismisses process, but to notice it is consequential. Measurements or calculations can be made to support our theories, though the best we can hope for are better theories. Such horizons are so far away they remain far the faster we pursue. Uncertainty is our fortune, it forces us to try and allows us to hope. Uncertainty makes us behave well and makes learning an advantage. Every line is a cusp and every point a continuum where information reproduces. We will never know what we have. We must expect the unexpected and take it as advantage. Our pathway is imprecise in all directions at once.
