"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)



“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”

Reckoning: Two Truths Of Skeptics | Definitions
Unity Consciousness #1045

.

To be skeptical does not mean to doubt or to choose whether or not we believe something.
To the contrary, to be skeptical means to examine, verify, and bring out understandings of that which was hidden and had escaped previous notice. (BB 226/238)

The word Skeptic is derived from the Greek, “Skeptikos” which is an examiner, and inquirer.
Skeptic is also derived from the Greek, “Skeptomai which means “I look, I examine.”

Now notice the difference in the following definitions:
In Egyptian, Skhep is to clear up, enlighten, illumine, render brilliant. (BB 225/237)
In Egyptian, Skheps are the learned, teachers, enlighteners. (BB 223/235)

The Greeks were not examining for the purpose of understanding, they were examining for the purpose of finding fault, discrediting and doubting.

Skhep is a form of Khep, the womb, thus the place of all beginnings, thus the Archetype.
To be skheptical is to be Kheptical. Aware of the circle and the elliptical. The total.
To be skheptical is to seek to understand more, not to understand less than when we started.
Each time we encounter information, and are simply doubtful, disbelieving and do not seek to understand more, we end up understanding less than before we encountered the information.
How is this possible?
When we encounter information and do not begin to answer the questions that come up, we are stagnating and eventually devolving. Stagnation is a loss of motion momentum towards maturing in understandings. Questions and doubts are okay and good, they provide the energy for further inquiry. When we discard that energy and do not inquire, we lose that energy and end of understanding less because we have not yet learned to seek understandings.
Skeptic does not mean him who doubts, but him who investigates or researches as opposed to him who asserts and thinks that he has found. - - Miguel de Unamuno
