so-called optimism

The naysayers pride themselves on their supposed realism. However…’emptiness’ and ‘lack’…are abstractions of the mind, where as ‘half-full’ is a measure of the physical reality under discussion. The so-called optimist, then, is the only one attending to real things, the only one describing a substance that is actually in the glass.
