In a living creature, the body is always trying to maintain a healthy balance and this process is called homeostasis. For example, if one hormone is too low other chemicals are released to make up for it and correct the imbalance. I wish we could somehow achieve this process in thinking. If time is given to one narrative, shouldn't we give some time to it's opposition in order to see the whole picture? I'm probably screwing up what I'm trying to say, but I really feel we need to achieve balance in thought as well as our physiological processes (and I really like the idea of self correction to achieve balance). Skepticism towards our own narratives is difficult at times, but so necessary to be balanced.
