nature makes no leaps

Rationality and faith require leaps from facts to belief into truth to justify our version of reality.
Nature (in this case, reality) does not make leaps but infinitesimal tests and failures producing incremental changes.

When you are baffled at where you are, realize that nature* is the orienting ground you seek.

(*nature itself is a contentious term, which I will post on next time)
