Once you've asked 'that' question, isn't the answer natural?

Thought-noun-symbol for something that really isn't (by itself) but isn't it useful because it is said in mind to be so?

If not, then what's to value?

Forest or trees?

Believe or know?

All is 'is'.

Believe in 'this or that' if you like.

Then believing becomes part of your meaning of life, but not life itself.

Believing in religion or anything will keep you enternally separated.
