My highest value is beauty. I seek it in nature, ideas, and people. My second highest value is truth. I seek it in thinking, relationships, and perception. I trust the great traditions, science, and my own intuition, and I know that none of them are infallible. Since science has spent the most time creating a method to prevent deception, including self-deception, I trust it the most. But I also trust the eons of natural selection recorded in my genome. And I study religion, literature, and art tuned as they are for the heart. I appreciate the sparks of genius that come to all who think and question and ponder. It remains strangely evident -- the truth sets us free.
