    He said that we should doubt everything. But this got me thinking: if he doubted everything than how could he have achieve so much in the fields of mathematics and physics? Anyways my question is this: Did he REALLY mean to doubt everything or was this method of knowledge and doubt just a way the human mind should work while figuring things out? I thought he meant that we should apply this "way of thinking" to knowledge and we should not trust our senses as opposed to REALLY doubting everything?

    I have stumbled on a debate on secular policies (which is somewhat irrelevant in the context of this question) and the terms principle and ideology is being thrown around. It seems that ideology has a dogma and where a dogma is characterized as being a principle, a principle does not have a dogma itself. From this, my reasoning is that a set of principles create an ideology, much like a set of ideologies create a philosophy. Much like a big brother/little brother relationship. Is my interpretation accurate? If so, what is a more technical way of explaining it? Correct me if I am wrong too.

    r: Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one. Albert Einstein "Nothing is as it seems. Nor is it otherwise." Lankavatara Sutra - Mahāyāna Buddhism There is no greater mystery than this; that being the reality we seek to gain reality. Sri Ramana Maharshi December 30, 1879 – April 14, 1950 Plato’s cave analogy. Inprisoned inside the cave (Us), prisoners see the shadows on the wall and mistakenly view the shadows as reality. Every now and agian someone awakens to the truth and tries to tell others (Us), but the others respond with anger. Greek word "cosmos" Meaning "In The World" functioning apart from God And according to Early Christian gnosticism - "Seraphims" Keter - Crown Divine Plan ~ The Angel of Death. (Read John 7:7) Satan is the ruler of this "cosmos" (John 12:31; 16:11; 1 John 5:19) Islam. The Surah takes its title from the sentence, Wa anzalna' l-hadida, of verse 25 - A study of iron Hinduism - Caught up in Samsara – Maya ~ The Malevolant illusion
