There is little to discover in the confines of certainty, this is really the only thing someone can be certain of, in that the limits one sets for his- or herself are set for fear of stumbling into circumstances containing any kind of uncertainty. It is not of odd nature for one to beseech clarity, as it only makes sense. It would be ridiculous, for example, for one to give an invited party the wrong address. Preciseness is a necessary thing to have, but, in some ways, it is an enemy to the conscious state. For instance, religion provides someone with an everlasting cop out, because religious people are certain that what they think is true, so are atheists -- and thus, these people permit grand limitations of self to be implemented in order to force out complicated questions, as people are fearful of what kind of difficult specter may haunt the essence of the answers to them. But the nature of a question is to ask, and a ponder that seeks relevance will be asked by someone eventually. Avoiding attempts to resolve questions of uncertainty only makes it unnecessarily more arduous to get on with things.
