You are at a race, the men are lined up, the gun shoots they run….
You are supporting no 10,
but in the confusion and fast pace of the race you think no 8 has won.
You cry and get upset and spend the rest of your life thinking no8 won.
Then someone lets you know that no 10 won.
You now see the race as it truly is, not as you thought it was.
This is Gnosticism.
