Two directions in which we commit intellectual offences against the law and oppose ourselves to authority:
1. We decide that everything is an open question and forget there are three facts no one can argue with--
a. God is.
b. Self is.
c. The World is.
These three are both "unprovable and self-proven." (?)
2.We do not recognize the nature and limitations of reason.
a. The process of reasoning an idea out is as involuntary as our blood pumping through our veins.
b. Our minds automatically prove logically any idea our minds accept.
This limits Reason to being helpful only in proving right ideas logically. It is the Will that must determine right and wrong and accept or reject ideas.
