Hi Luis,

I feel very fortunate and free in my pursuit of ideas. The only person I need satisfy is myself. I belong to no organization to whose ideas I owe any allegiance nor to whom I need justify my own beliefs.

My sole criterion is whether a particular belief rates higher on my "belief probability scale" than all contending beliefs or not. Even though I consider all candidates to be possibilities, I claim to "believe" in the one that is currently enjoying the highest number *assigned by me*.

For my purposes, the criterion of falsibility is not important and I give it very little consideration. However, I do recognize that criterion as being important for systems of organized belief, such as science.

Warm regards,
