Is death to settle on what you think you know as truth, never changing your mind?
As soon as we hold a thought in our minds, that has already passed. Therefore, to our knowledge we exist in the past. When we think about the future, it is in the past. The present tense does not exist because as soon as something becomes present, it has already passed. If the past is only accessible from our own senses and our own idea of what reality is, it can't be trusted because it is our own subjective view. So if the only thing left to be trusted is the unknowable future, we must always be re-evaluating what we know and what we think we know to be true. So then, does to hold beliefs and settle on knowledge without questioning anything become death? Are we really living if we don't question everything around us?
