Harvey has described his inspiration for burning these effigies as a spontaneous act of "radical self-expression". When Grauberger stopped organizing it, Harvey "picked up the torch," and ran with it.
A burning itch to know is higher than a solemn vow to pursue truth. To feel the burning itch of curiosity requires both that you be ignorant, and that you desire to relinquish your ignorance. If in your heart you believe you already know, or if in your heart you do not wish to know, then your questioning will be purposeless and your skills without direction.
Curiosity seeks to annihilate itself; there is no curiosity that does not want an answer. The glory of glorious mystery is to be solved, after which it ceases to be mystery. Be wary of those who speak of being open-minded and modestly confess their ignorance.
There is a time to confess your ignorance and a time to relinquish your ignorance. The second virtue is relinquishment. The thought you cannot think controls you more than thoughts you speak aloud. Submit yourself to ordeals and test yourself in fire.
Relinquish the emotion which rests upon a mistaken belief, and seek to feel fully that emotion which fits the facts.
If the iron approaches your face, and you believe it is hot, and it is cool, the Way opposes your fear. If the iron approaches your face, and you believe it is cool, and it is hot, the Way opposes your calm.
Evaluate your beliefs first and then arrive at your emotions. The third virtue is lightness. Let the winds of evidence blow you about as though you are a leaf, with no direction of your own. Beware lest you fight a rearguard retreat against the evidence, grudgingly conceding each foot of ground only when forced, feeling cheated.
Surrender to the truth as quickly as you can. Do this the instant you realize what you are resisting; the instant you can see from which quarter the winds of evidence are blowing against you. Be faithless to your cause and betray it to a stronger enemy. If you regard evidence as a constraint and seek to free yourself, you sell yourself into the chains of your whims.
For you cannot make a true map of a city by sitting in your bedroom with your eyes shut and drawing lines upon paper according to impulse.
You must walk through the city and draw lines on paper that correspond to what you see. If, seeing the city unclearly, you think that you can shift a line just a little to the right, just a little to the left, according to your caprice, this is just the same mistake. The fourth virtue is evenness.
If you are selective about which arguments you inspect for flaws, or how hard you inspect for flaws, then every flaw you learn how to detect makes you that much stupider.
To be clever in argument is not rationality but rationalization. Intelligence, to be useful, must be used for something other than defeating itself. Listen to hypotheses as they plead their cases before you, but remember that you are not a hypothesis, you are the judge.
Therefore do not seek to argue for one side or another, for if you knew your destination, you would already be there. The fifth virtue is argument. Those who wish to fail must first prevent their friends from helping them. Those who smile wisely and say: In argument strive for exact honesty, for the sake of others and also yourself: The part of yourself that distorts what you say to others also distorts your own thoughts.
Do not believe you do others a favor if you accept their arguments; the favor is to you. Do not think that fairness to all sides means balancing yourself evenly between positions; truth is not handed out in equal portions before the start of a debate.
You cannot move forward on factual questions by fighting with fists or insults. Seek a test that lets reality judge between you. The sixth virtue is empiricism.
The roots of knowledge are in observation and its fruit is prediction. What tree grows without roots?
What tree nourishes us without fruit?Twelve Virtues of Rationality. The first virtue is curiosity. A burning itch to know is higher than a solemn vow to pursue truth.
To feel the burning itch of curiosity requires both that you be ignorant, and that you desire to relinquish your ignorance.

The Liver – Your Biggest Fat Burning Organ. The liver is one of the most important organs in the body.
It is constantly cleansing your blood; maintaining your blood sugar levels; digesting fats, proteins, and carbohydrates; and producing bile and other enzymes amongst many other functions (like storing vitamins, minerals, and glycogen). The Fallacies of Egoism and Altruism, and the Fundamental Principle of Morality (after Kant and Nelson) I have not done wrong.
