Congratulations. I've been waiting all this time for someone to identify
the cherished belief that must be given up to get to Level 3. You have
done it.

Imagine that the Absolute Truth is NOT embedded in OR, but that instead
there are an infinity of mostly self-consistent truth systems that
describe OR. Each has advantages and disadvantages given what your
purpose is.

Realize that most people have perfectly OK lives without knowing about
the charge of an electron or even Pi.
