This classic film (The Matrix)  posed the probing question:  How do you know whether the things you perceive are real or just an illusion? In truth, we don’t, but we all like to believe that we perceive is real as it is rather comforting & secure & keeps us from discomforting thoughts that suggest otherwise.  If there is anything that one can take away from the great Socrates, it is this: Always have a doubt…….It’s strangely liberating though the answers seldom come as fast as we’d like. Better still to live in a discomforting truth than in the bliss of ignorance.
