PERFECT CERTAINTIES vs BETS

     Just as there are perfect certainties that can not be wrong, just so 
there are statements that can not be perfect certainties and can never be 
perfect certainties.

     Once one attains awareness of perfect certainties and becomes facile
spotting them or rejecting them, one can then easily spot when a statement
can never be a perfect certainty, and thus safely relegate it to a mere
probability or bet.

     Thus one can no longer make the error of being certain of something 
and finding out later that one was wrong as everything one holds true is 
either a perfect certainty that can not be wrong, or a probabilistic bet 
that can not be a perfect certainty.

     This is called personal integrity.

Learning implies Learning with Certainty or Learning without Certainty.
Learning across a Distance implies Learning by Being an Effect.
Learning by Being an Effect implies Learning without Certainty.
Therefore, Learning with Certainty implies Learning,
but not by Being an Effect, and not across a Distance.
