Comment: Being misinformed is the human reality

(See in situ)

Being misinformed is the human reality

We are always misinformed. Even if we think that we have all the information (which we can never have) concerning a certain subject we are still in some sense misinformed. In some things we are more misinformed and on others less so, but always in some sense misinformed. And that is an important insight, because then a person throughout his whole life can keep himself in a state of astonishment and questioning as he understands that even those matters which we think that we are totally knowledgeable can open up abyssal realities which we didn't even imagine them to possess. Everything in this world has way more dimensions than our little heads can ever know.
