    Philosophizing & Poetizing on Realizing:
The Philosopher/Poets are the observers,
    they look for that seam that binds life together.
The who, what, where, were, how, and why,
    are of little concern in life's deeper meaning.
There are judgements, accounts, myths, and lies,
    seeking of Truth is the only way it sorts out.
Truth is the needle; Justice is the thread; Binding ,
    the Universe into a rational path for edification.

    The Truth:
The 'Truth' is the reality of what is,
    the whole reality... of what is.
The accurate and complete information,
    with the details attached and laid bare.
Anything less than complete will not do,
    otherwise it's only... ones best guess.

    The Lie:
The Lie only needs an active participant,
    and the apathetic will do just fine.
The Lie rely's on the celibacy of cerebration,
    the self-discipline of inactive thought.
A Lie is just information regurgitated, then
    vomited forth as if it were a flawless gem.

    The Conflict:
Logic dictates one plus one must equal two,
    but should truth conflict with a belief;
Then most will slip into a denial of the facts,
    and emotions will compete for this rule.
Conflict now arises as one believes, it is this;
    even after presented facts... that it isn't.

    The Opinion:
Information is but a collection of facts,
    which allows a conclusions to be drawn.
If the information is incomplete or skewed,
    the conclusion drawn is then flawed.
An Opinion is but a persons system of logic,
    exposed so others can examine its validity.

    The Skeptic:
No one individual can posses all the raw data it
    requires, to arrive at a proper conclusion.
Man must doubt all that is laid out before him
    as Truth, as Truth can deep-end on an agenda.
The art of skepticism demands questions be asked,
    and how to ask that question, is the key to gospel.

    About Thinking:
To Think, is a subjective one dimensional exercise,
    forcing the mind into a low narrow pathway.
Thinking, does not allow the mind freedom to explore
    all the possibilities it could consider, for a solution.
The constraints of time and limited possibilities placed
    on the mind, only serves to jump to a conclusion.

    About Pondering:
The art of Pondering, allows the mind the freedom to
    explore all the possibilities available for a solution.
When the mind is free, it will look at everything learned,
    then offer avenues to acquire more needed data.
The mind, after acquiring the needed data, will then go
    about logically seeking a solution for the problem.

    A Conclusion:
One must first doubt the evidence; then ask questions;
    ponder the data available; now doubt your results!
You must always engage life for yourself, when you let
    others engage it for you, they have control over you!
Educate yourself for yourself, and you are free from the
    constraints of others, as tyranny just loves ignorance!

Perhaps Adolph did say it best when he said;
    "What luck for rulers, that men do not think."

Gary, the heard part is the realization. Most of us never arrive at that point. Your poem shows lots of work. Bill
