The Ability To Function

While writing the “Rule-Based Safety” post of a few days ago, this quote kept interfering with my thoughts:

Opposing Ideas

Whenever I end up simultaneously holding two opposing ideas in my head, most of the time one of them automatically wins the battle quickly and boots out the loser. Phew, the victory relieves the mental tension. On the down-side, the winner is much too effective at preventing the opposition from ever entering the contemplation chamber again. I hate when that happens.
