Blindness and Hallucination

A question that has since hung like a sword of Damocles over all knowledge, from the most trivial to the most advanced: How can we ever be justified in generalizing from what we’ve seen to what we haven’t?

Thus a good learner is forever validating the narrow path between blindness and hallucination.
