Thinkers and sages as various as Immanuel Kant, the Buddha, St. Paul, Sigmund Freud--and countless others--have argued or shown that we have a limited grasp of reality. Not only is reality cognitively mediated, it is reordered and construed by our interests, needs, desires, and fears. Much of the mind's power is dedicated to preventing our grasp of reality.

Then we also scrimp around and find substances, practices, or beliefs that further inhibit the mind's powers and clarity.

So what lies beneath the haze? That would be an interesting thing to know.
