Surety makes life a lot easier. However, there is something about uncertainty too. It is the element on which imagination is based. Its possible for people to copy professions, personalities, lifestyles, etc, but nobody can copy someone’s imagination. To each his own: From life to light, from dark to bright, making every individual special. Imagining what must have happened at this spot over its 600 years of existence can actually hit you in the feels, and make uncertainty more beautiful than surety.
