When you understand the world, there is no hope. For, there is only understanding. Hope is an answer to miscomprehension. And so, hopeing is belief in the positive outcome. And lack of hope is believing in the negative outcome. In essence, they are exactly the same. And so one can attain perfect happiness with both views.
But nowadays, I know, that I have limitations. And that I know, that what I say and think now, might not be a true or valid as it will be tomorrow. My arguments for myself are just part of a flawless perfect reasoning. Which I haven't achieved yet. It is only trying to get close, to find that perfect argumentation that will eventually lead me to be exactly right. And have no doubts whatsoever of what I speak. I my eyes, such an argumentation, is either yet unconceivable, or so pervasive, that it defies the laws of nature. There are limits to knowledge and wisdom.
