How To: Mysticism

Creation and destruction are the same thing; when you create a written page, you destroy a blank page. From this we can conclude that all opposites are the same thing. To create knowledge is to destroy ignorance, so knowledge and ignorance are the same thing at different moments, just as every pile of rubble is also a house. Therefore, as Bohr explained, all ideas are profound.

clue:

“The opposite of a fact is falsehood, but the opposite of one profound truth may very well be another profound truth.” — Niels Bohr

give me a clue so sweet and true
