“Imagine you come upon a house painted brown. What color would you say the house was?"
"Why brown, of course."
"But what if I came upon it from the other side, and found it to be white?"
"That would be absurd. Who would paint a house two colors?"
He ignored my question. "You say it's brown, and I say it's white. Who's right?"
"We're both right."
"Non," he said. "We're both wrong. The house isn't brown or white. It's both. You and I only see one side. But that doesn't mean the other side doesn't exist. To not see the whole is to not see the truth.”
Megan Chance, The Spiritualist

Megan Chance, The Spiritualist
“Sight is one of the most easily deceived senses. I could make a coin disappear and your eyes would believe it gone, even if it were merely up my sleeve.”
Megan Chance, The Spiritualist
“Trying to justify a world we don't hold all the answers to is what bedevils the best of us. Sometimes it's better just to accept that things are as we see them.”
Megan Chance, The Spiritualist
“Logic only tells us what's there; it can't really address what isn't. Even the most devoted empiricist must admit that we have no hope of understanding the universe. Some things are unknowable.”
Megan Chance, The Spiritualist
“In the end, there's only one thing you can believe. Bodies are honest; they don't lie.”
Megan Chance, The Spiritualist

Megan Chance, The Spiritualist

Megan Chance, The Spiritualist
