Indeed, interesting read.
I liked the way he described how shocking it was that reality differed to what had been taught to him through religion. For some of us that pressure is hard to fathom. The question is - is that pressure from family? Is it social? Does it represent a challenge to his logical processing that knowledge is passed down through generations rather than discovered, uncovered and proven?

I think understanding that is the key to undoing the delusion.
