Imo it is possible that the dao is noble, and it is possible that I am immortal; and it is possible that I will go to a hell when I die. Nearly everything is possible. It is also possible that I am wrong about nearly everything. Maybe what I think is possible, is not possible.
And on the other hand, to me, it is possible that rene cannot be wrong about almost everything.
(see chapter 2 of Zhuangzi to see if this is close to the experience of the dao ren zhe)
(in the above I am talking about phenomena, not math or logical contradictions; in other words whether pigs could fly, not whether 2 + 2 can equal 5)
Imo it is not possible that I (an apparently ever changing self-aware process) do not exist. In my way of thinking, if I experience, I ipso facto exist.
That said, there are still practical/useful reasons for me provisionally assuming that the dao is not noble.
