I was explaining some Ayurveda to a friend here. And our eating habits, specially the tags of 'heat' and 'cool' that we've assigned to some of the goods we eat.
At the end of it all, i was asked if i believed in it all. 'Well, some of it', i said.
I realized something. We perceive a thing as it is, because we believe it to be so. We are taught so. If it was called by another name, described as something else, then that would be 'it' for us. It's just a matter of belief.
On this note, i don't know if everything can be reasoned this way.
