Got to keep tryin', man, dontcha think?  Without understanding
and interpretation, we cannot evolve to loosen our conditioned
responses, improve mental flexibility, or gain emotional
acceptance of some of the wackiness hanging out in the universe.
Absolute proof is not necessary to entertain possibilities and
cover some inner ground.  Guess I'm maintaining that it's more
useful to ourselves as individuals to take a possible (or likely,
or very likely) assumption, such as the ETH, and attempt to
derive the implications.  Otherwise we're like the duped
protagonists in the Rocky Horror Picture Show, living "in a world
without meaning."  Not a fun place, IMO.
