The Purity and Pleasures of Understanding

There is a certain purity or sacredness in the pursuit of understanding.  Whether it is understanding derived from the study of nature, or understanding derived from the study of human affairs driven by its associated concepts, structures, and needs; the moment of focus, question, and comprehension is a rising from the morass of purblind ignorance and anxieties into the spacious rooms of intellectual and emotional tidiness.  Cleanliness is next to Godliness, the saying goes, and discoveries share this common attribute—they tend to make loose ends ordered and uncluttered.  The moment of creative comprehension when sense is made out of disorder is a special sacred moment of high privilege shared by humanity at its best.  “A place for everything and everything in its place” just about sums up the mission statement for mankind.  This drive for tidiness when graced by love is a form of paranoia gifted to us by our guardian angels sent from above.  Unlike order derived from the contrived suppression that marks evil and ignorance; creative discovery being founded in love has the essential aspect of liberty.
