In order to find a semblance of truth, we must explore all aspects of the issue at hand. To do this we cannot merely imagine the positions; we cannot merely think about what the arguments may be. We must become the positions. We must wholeheartedly be the positions, and argue them as we believe and know they are true. For only then can we know what it is for that position to be true; for only then can we have a possibility of what it means for it to be false. And through this our life is spent in honesty, for the purpose of finding what is true.
We risk everything of this we call life.
