Here's what you should do.

Take one of your most cherished, "well, duh!" beliefs and go deep into enemy territory with it. Read the counter-evidence, sit through the screeds, bombard it with neutrinos. See what happens.

I'm not going to tell you what happens, because I don't know.

My ideas about the world are correct and fundamentally sound.

Anyway, see if you can do it. I've tried it and it's more existentially harrowing than I initially thought it would be.

Drink more red wine, too.

Yes- this is a good one that a person should do every now & then. harrowing is right- it's shaky leg diarrhea sweat inducing stuff but it make you throw out the crap you didn't realize you no longer believe in and cherish the stuff you still do. (and it's less painful than a colonoscopy.)

methinks you've traveled to the dark nether regions of the 'Free Republic' and gleaned that your grasp of reality still holds strong.
