Somewhere between reality and imagination lies a Truth that is both unknown and inexplicable. Curiosity is a natural response to that which cannot be explained, as is the tendency to assign a cause to justify an effect. If everything does happen for a reason, a certain discomfort stems from that which is unknown, and it is not within the bounds of human nature to resist asking the simple but powerful question "Why?". While it is tempting to build bridges between the two worlds of the tangible and the intangible, some mysteries are better left unsolved. The Greeks warn of the whispers from Pandora's box, as does Aesop in his tale of "The Hare and the Fox", and it has long been said that curiosity maimed the feline. Despite the strong cautions, it seems that resistance is futile, so take a walk with us, if you will, along the edge of reason. However, there are rules to follow along the way. Before you enter this world of unexplained phenomena, check your judgements, your stereotypes, your prejudices, your logic at the door. Do not try to make sense of everything, for your journey will end before it begins, either in a pit of frustration, an abyss of confusion, or a pool of denial. Truth is an entity that exists whether you grasp it or not. By opening your mind and accepting that the known and the unknown co-exist in harmony on this Earth, and on occasion overlap, and sometimes even collide, you have taken the first step in uncovering this Truth - not your truth, not someone else's version of the truth, but the Truth itself. This Truth is not meant to be understood, but to be recognized and accepted. Let us discover this Truth together.
