“The overwhelming desire of society today is to assume that equal powers of reason are a universal heritage of humanity.  It may well be.  But simply wanting this to be the case is not enough.  This is not science..”

-Reported to be the words of gene scientist, James Watson

The understanding that all humans are born equal does not specify what they are equal in.   We are looking at the question of where fact ends.  At the limits of ‘factuality’.

…What is interesting is the way this forces us to confront the basic metaphysical crisis in Western thinking.
