The Answer is in the Middle

Under the light of kindness is the best place to search for any truth. Moreover, a search for truth is best conducted under the middle of the light. Hate and cynicism cause you to slide toward the edges where shadows loom large. Where the light is dim, fragmentary ideas can appear true, complete and justifiable. Keep to the middle for kindness and truth.

I was about to write this post when I received a list of Akin’s Laws of Spacecraft Design from my son Jeff. Law # 8 says: In nature, the optimum is almost always in the middle somewhere. Distrust assertions that the optimum is at an extreme point. Also true in many aspects of life.
