Lesson 1: What IS the past?

The Past Versus The Account PowerPoint

THE_PAST

Out there someone lies the truth.  But, who are we determine what that truth really is?  Humans are both capable and fallible and they leave a record, a version, an interpretation–but that is all.  An account is all we have.  Problem is, we all have our own accounts, our own versions and schema that narrates our own personal truth.  Since most folks are “on the air, unaware“, they think the interpretation–the beliefs–they subscribe to is the truth.  They abound in certainty and lack humility and therefore eradicate all hopes of seeing a world different from the shadows in their cave.
