From the page:
Some people have a funny view of reality. Perhaps it's not funny to them, but very serious. They believe that what they see in front of them is what is actually real, and the entire story. They may even go so far as to say that what the respected authorities approve of, is what's real. That's the safe stuff to believe in. I mean, how did they get to be authorities to begin with? They must know more than we do, for pete's sake!
Some people give up their own ability to decide what's real for them, never dreaming that perhaps they can be an authority, themselves. People often validate facts and proof, rather than look for themselves.
