I found this at Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy and latched onto it because it echoes something I have always believed. Just wanted to share it. The last line has reams of "sermons" in it but I had better skip that if I know what is good for me. What I am wondering is what is this "still heart of reality"? Knowing philosophy and the battle of "what is reality?" and "what is real?", dare I ask? Parmenides is said to have written something about what reality is but I've not been able to find much more than statements that he did write such.
From Parmenides' "Proem" (what is left of it):
…And it is necessary for you to learn all things,
Both the still heart of persuasive reality
And the opinions of mortals, in which there is no genuine reliability.
What is reality according to Parmenides?
