Imagine stepping up on a platform in the midst of a haze. Being on that platform, you are propped up above the haze and can see down into it. Your perspective has changed. Suddenly things are clearer and so you believe that you can see clearly but, really, you still cannot see beyond the haze.

And then, as if by chance, something punches a lever that jerks the platform upwards. The initial shock of the movement disturbs your peace and you would like to scowl at whomever is responsible, but as you look around you realize you are still rising. Higher and higher. And now you can see beyond the haze and the desperate desire you had for remaining in your previous position just a moment ago is now completely irrelevent to the extent of truth itself.
