Sightseeing / Nonsense

Sightseeing - Nonsense

Brooklyn Bridge always makes a great backdrop.

It is noted that, Rabbi and scholar of Talmud, Saul Lieberman said of Kabbalah: "Nonsense (when it is all said and done) is still nonsense. But the study of nonsense, that is a science". I do not know anything about Kabbalah, but Lieberman's quote is true for so much "science". Nonsense is any communication that lacks any coherent meaning. Nonsense could be intentionally included in text or speech, or something that makes sense may be perceived to be nonsense. There is no coherent and consistent method of distinguishing nonsense from sense. For example, Carl Jung was not so eager to distinguish between sense and nonsense. He wrote: "Show me a sane man and I will cure him for you", and elsewhere: "The pendulum of the mind oscillates between sense and nonsense, not between right and wrong".
