True beliefs require directed input

(Not sure about the title yet, and need to clarify this more)

Bayes’ Theorem (whether implicitly or explicitly) is what is used to direct “belief energy” towards true beliefs. This is like how a machine needs energy input to continue running.

It may even be more than a metaphor, if we take the idea that Entropy is the tendency of a system to progress towards technical simplicity, and Bayes’ Theorem may be a tool for helping us see the flow of Entropy.
