The concept of Occam's Razor states (as paraphrased in my short story "Of Julie and Better Men") "Don't look beyond the obvious because odds are there lies the truth."  Yet, from the perspective of an artist, "only the truth"  -- regardless of how difficult this may be to find (and perhaps even more difficult to share) -- is the obvious solution as to how to proceed through life.  The really funny thing about that is, while this may seem "insane" to those yet firmly wrapped in the security of the obvious and long accepted, clinging tenaciously to the most sometimes obscure truth can ultimately prevent one from looking really foolish (or even meeting a far worse fate) in the long run.  

And, as the person who sent this to me advised, you might want to "pass this on to some other brilliant friends . . ."
