A cast back sees intense
moments which may at the time have been sensible. For example I
would like to believe that a Turkey Buzzard can live for one hundred and
sixteen years. Then to discover this number to be a construct of
another's imagination leaves me disappointed. So how should I
approach the statement 'A Wandering Albatross lives to be sixty years
A wise man would consider sources.
He would point to the world and remind me how full it is of
inconsolable differences. He would understand evidence. "Yes,"
he would say, "An Emu walks three hundred and twenty miles during
migration, because I have followed one."
