It is not that humans are incapable of grasping the truth it is that they are grasping. They can not find the truth because they are looking somewhere else, looking 'out there' to 'things' of the world. You are the truth but you will not look there.

Knowledge is power, no doubt. However, knowledge just for the sake of knowledge is never a good thing. Or, another quip that I've heard is, "Knowledge unused is ignorance." We have mental institutions full of people who in all reality have more knowledge than your average person on the street. However, typically with a "mentally ill" person that knowledge is kept hushed. Do they keep hushed because they are "mentally ill?" Or, more logically, are they "mentally ill" because they keep hushed? I'd say it's the latter rather than the former.

Here is my best advice for you:
