It’s beginning to dawn on me, as I spend so much time trying to learn the takeaways from astrophysics, microbiology, theology, historical Jesus studies, etc —  that even if I learned and understood it perfectly, still, a thousand years from now this will have been a primitive step along the way.   arrgh!   So why invest so much in it??

Maybe it’s like Everest —  it’s just what people do.   Maybe I need to adjust my ideas about what I’m doing —  not searching in order to know ultimate truth or reality, but searching in order to help the effort along, toward such understanding in some distant future.

That’s less satisfying… but likely more realistic.  ….Unless there’s a way to intuit all the way to “enlightenment”  :  )   Can’t rule that out  :  )
