← Sunk Costs and Expensive Beliefs

@ Premiseless: The human mind is to me, almost always; at best a fickle tool of evolution and at worst one intending harm wherever and whenever it can escape unscathed - at someone elses expense or demise.

Fickle because of it's capacity to become confused? Or because it betrays one quite often? Or because it gives us false hope?

This is a true statement and one that is equally disturbing when analyzed. People lie to themselves and can't be totally truthful . Must be part of a coping mechanism.
