On the split of humanity

The problem for us, in our conceptualization of reality, is that everything has at least two aspects. This problem means that everything can only be either ambiguous or paradoxically contradictory, that is, either ambiguous between the two aspects or paradoxically contradictory between them. The “thing in the middle” will thus forever be hidden for us between an ambiguity and a paradoxical contradiction.

It means that we can never understand what the world is, nor arrive to an unambiguous description of the history of it, but can only model it (and thus manipulate it). There will, however, always be more than one model that is equally correct.

Our destiny is thus to be split, because we split the world. The question is just how much.
