Love sees sharply, hatred sees even more sharp. Jealousy sees the sharpest for it is love & hate at the same time

Suspicion will always imagine yet another such fold, and another...rendering the omniscience obsolete.

"Jealousy is never satisfied with anything short of an omniscience that would detect the subtlest fold of the heart."

There are differences of opinions.

May I offer one:

The human mind can respect, yet reject the "sublest fold of the heart" that can harbor and wither under the bitterness and destruction of social jealousy.

A tiny fold of an understanding heart is greater than all the unsatisfied doubts, mountains and vallys of the decieved mind and lonliness.

Without that spark; jealousy, hatred and distrust is inevitable, and will destroy the last human vestage of humanity.

Hope.

The older I grow the more I distrust the familiar doctrine that age brings wisdom. H. L. Mencken

The omniscience that satisfied jealousy once falls short of its next demand every time.
