This blog site is a summary of what I have learned since I was 18 years old when I knew everything. When all was certain and clear.
Since then I have learned uncertainty. I have learned that almost all the ideas I was brought up with were wrong. I have found my way through to a new mental world created by me, for me, based on every experience I have had, everything I have ever watched, all I have listened to, touched and felt.
It isn’t over yet. If my understanding of the world does not continue to evolve I will be highly suspicious because the that would mean I was definitely right. The last time I was definitely right was 18.
That guy didn’t know anything.
Two things I was taught by my parents and understood before I was six years old gave me a toolkit that allowed me to tear down my reality and rebuild it:
- There are no sacred cows (no information, no idea is beyond intelligent questioning).
- Respect is earned (too many people with power over others like politicians or teachers try to demand respect).
It is November 2017. I am 45. This blog is what I’ve rebuilt so far.
