In-depth IGNORANCE

IN-DEPTH IGNORANCE: ODD-MAN(one)-IN

Despite having the whole store of human knowledge just a mouse-click away today we are all nearly as ignorant as we were in the dark times of religious superstitions. The power of ignorance is great… (Stephen Fry)( Donald Trump´s success and Brexit are clear examples) We don´t know a millionth of one per cent about anything. (Thomas.A. Edison)
By ignorance the truth is known (Henry Suso The little book of truth) Everything you think you know may be wrong ( The book of general ignorance John Lloyd & John Mitchinson)Where ignorance is bliss ´tis folly to be wise (English proverb) Ignorance might make you happier as the more you know the more you realise how little you  actually know....

"ipse se nihil scire id unum sciat"

"I know one thing; that I know nothing" Socrates


Cuando creía que comprendía todo empecé a entender que no sabía nada, fue entonces cuando comencé realmente a comprender algo . . .

A deeper knowledge of the world around us is quite necessary as our globalized world has become richer and more complex. There was a time when we simply ordered potatoes or rice and we could not care the least about the varieties of potatoes or rice being served.
