But what if it's pumpkin pie? I hate that stuff. I am comfortable remaining ignorant about rocket science and pumpkin pie.A squirrel is ignorant of the development of metaphysics, but we do not cast labels upon it. If its out of one's depths, being ignorant of some information is fine. But if it is within one's reach, being ignorant is less likely to be acceptable. Like pie for example. Yes, there is probably a pie in my neighborhood somewhere outside of my reach, thus it is okay for me to be ignorant of wanting delicious pie. But if there is a pie in my house right now, it is ignorant of me not to want its deliciousness. Now off to look for pies byeee
Agreed. l don't think some people quite grasp how annoying it is, rather they see themselves as being principled or some such utter bullshit.I would say that willful ignorance is to be frowned upon, where-as uncontrollable ignorance, while annoying, is acceptable.
I believe EVERYONE has something they choose to remain ignorant about. Something we don't seek to understand better. We're all guilty of it sometimes.Agreed. l don't think some people quite grasp how annoying it is, rather they see themselves as being stoic or some such utter bullshit.
Say, do you really treasure my friendship? l feel your signature isn't being completely truthful with me
Some people have a tendency of cherishing their knowledge to such a level it is infallible by reason. If that knowledge lacks, it is dangerous / counter-productive. The people who can adapt their thinking and ideas prevail."Ignorance is not just a blank space on a person's mental map. It has contours and coherence, and for all I know rules of operation as well. So as a corollary to [the advice of] writing about what we know, maybe we should add getting familiar with our ignorance, and the possibilities therein for writing a good story."
Unfortunately, my signature wasn't completely truthful with you, because we don't have a friendship, yet. But if we did have a friendship, I am sure that my signature would then be seen as a prophetic statement of our friendship.Say, do you really treasure my friendship? l feel your signature isn't being completely truthful with me
