Patently True

Never in the history of the world has there been a better time for confirmation of one’s own self-delusion. Any thought, feeling or theory can instantly be “verified” as true with just a couple of keystrokes.

Google will dish up countless sources that will agree with someone who believes the planet we inhabit looks more like an M.C. Escher drawing instead of a sphere. Facebook will help that same person find a tribe of like-minded souls for deeper connection and fellowship.

Everyone is entitled to think and believe what they want. Though if you want to persuade a skeptic, it’s best to employ some intellectual rigor. That means write it down, sketch it out and show your work.

Maybe you might be on to something.

My friend Dr. Bryce Rutter is a master at this. He’s in the business of creating new things of value. Don’t take my word for it, just have a look at his creations that have been patented.

If you think this is impressive, you should see the whole wall.
