An interesting aspect of uncertainty is that once fear of uncertainty settles in, it invites a quest for a version of certainty that cannot be compromised by uncertainty.
Certainty and uncertainty then become the same thing: The avoidance of seeing anything but certainty or uncertainty.
At the source of uncertainty, one can then find a certainty based on a pattern of expectations as to what will happen.
At the source of certainty, there will be a deep uncertainty that cannot be tolerated and thus will be hidden from oneself.
In essence, with growing uncertainty, we’ll also find growing certainty.
They will be useful in some situations. But only if one remembers to see either of both as blinkers.
Remembering their presence allows taking them off when there is no need to focus on one perception anymore.
