Agree, Disagree? “Nature Loves to Hide.”

“Nature loves to hide.”

–Heraclitus, Fragments

I’m not exactly sure what this line means, but I love it. It’s an elegant, thought-provoking, enigmatic observation.

When I think about it in terms of “human nature,” I do agree.  I think it’s hard to see ourselves clearly; many of the most important aspects of our nature is obscured from us.

What do you think it means? Do you agree?
