Truth without a veil is always uninteresting to the human mind...

Not only uninteresting

Not only uninteresting, but often feared as well.

what is not perceived is not interesting

yes, but it is not the fault of the mind this time - we should not blame the mind (we have enough other misfortunes already to blame it).

It is not its fault simply because it cannot perceive truth - the mind by it nature and design can perceive form, words, concepts - things which do not exist in truth (see A Deception Called Form).

So of course it can not be interested in something that it cannot perceive by defintion. But you are not mind and one clue for this is that you can find something within that is honestly interested in truth and helplessly tries to seek it beyond mind.

Blame

Right, no need for blame. Nothing to blame anyway. The point is simply to notice this tendency of mind to avoid and not follow it. As you say, there is 'something' within that wants to wake up or we would not be here.
