An artist friend of mine observed that great art can make us simul- taneously cry out, “Holy Cow!” and “Of course!” Great art can make us see something in a radically new way, while at the same time help- ing us to see that this new vision fits, that it feels right.2 My goal in this little book is to ofer a philosophical vision of reality, and of human existence in the world that makes you say both “Holy Cow!” and “Of course!” So far as I succeed, things will snap into place so that you say, “It’s so obvious. Why didn’t I see that before? That is how I always experienced the world, but I never knew how to say it.
