“Proof (truth), argument or sufficient evidence for the truth of a proposition.”
Of what proposition? Whatever is important for you. This is what makes this invitation tricky. Not only you are asked to share your idea of proof, but also to become aware of what it is that you’d most like to have a “proof” of. For starters, there is the proof of “God”, to reassure us that there is an ultimate meaning behind all the randomness we experience. What is the quality or the genre of a “proof”. Let’s not be restrictive: a revelation, a dream or an event all qualify. I have two friends who despite living in separate continents met twice by pure coincidence. First in Manhattan, then in India in front of the Taj Mahal. They seem to have a pattern caressing the limits of the way we usually live probabilities. That works too. But proof can refer to so many other things. The proof of intimacy: do you like me the way I like you? The proof of are we on the “right track”? Are we doing the thing that will help us “become who we are”?
