The Critic

The conformist views reality as rigid,
with fixed rules and certainty about what is true.

The critic views reality as malleable,
with useful but arbitrary rules
and skepticism towards absolute truths.

I submit, then, that all progress depends on the critic,
who fears stasis more than uncertainty
recognizing that we are always in a cloud of unknowing

There is no need for a foundation.
There is never final conviction.
Just conjecture, criticism, and better explanations.
