We all make assumptions, and, with or without realizing, we live based on these assumptions. These assumptions are the values that guide our decision-making and the philosophies that underlie our psyche. When these assumptions are challenged, we feel afraid, vulnerable, and threatened.

What if I told you that your assumption that the island of Madagascar exists off the coast of East Africa is incorrect? No such island exists. All the pictures of the beautiful beaches are fakes. Have you ever been to Madagascar? Do you know anyone that’s ever been there? What proof do you have that Madagascar exists? A Wikipedia page. Is that proof?

How do you know your assumptions are true? What counts as reasonable, logical evidence? You assume Madagascar exists. So do I. But why do we assume this?
