Faith is the glue that fills the cracks between perception and reason. It is the essence of “trusting your eyes,” which could very well be faulty. It’s the act of rolling the dice on statistical chance, the belief at the start of the morning that despite the day’s risks you’ll end up safe and sound that night. It’s implicit. You have faith without choosing to, without thinking about it, without even knowing that’s what you’re doing. It’s subconscious.
