werner herzog - deeper truth

via antero

confusion of fact and truth
facts are something very superficial... an accountants truth
when you listen... it will occur to you very abruptly .. that there's a deep truth... you feel illuminated... you don't have to analyze...

why - because there's an ecstacy of truth..

: to intimately and completely share the same reality or line of thinking with another physical or conceptual entity

1961 book Stranger in a Strange Land. In Heinlein's view, grokking is the intermingling of intelligence that necessarily affects both the observer and the observed. From the novel:
Grok means to understand so thoroughly that the observer becomes a part of the observed—to merge, blend, intermarry, lose identity in group experience. It means almost everything that we mean by religion, philosophy, and science—and it means as little to us (because of our Earthling assumptions) as color means to a blind man.
