In the Middle
I like the “majority” of the “middle” that thinks, and then decides, after thoughtfully reflecting about things! This process, in many minds, allows for “navigating”, through sometimes perilously difficult times, and keeps their eyes open towards the challenges that always are just around the next bend on the road into the future.
Plato, and many others over the centuries, have known that every person has a basic, personal choice to stand on the banks of the “river of life” or to swim out into the future! Either way, “Belief” will always be a part of each person’s choice as they try to get closer to the “Truth”.
