Finished Reading: The Subtle Knife
"' Capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason.' You have to get into that state of mind. That's from the poet Keats, by the way. I found it the other day. So you get yourself in the right state of mind, and then you look at the Cave....Shadows on the walls of the Cave, you see, from Plato....If you think, the Shadows respond. There's no doubt about it."
Cave= Alethiometer=Fortune Telling=Ritual?
Shadow particles=earth=Dark Matter= dust= "sin"
