I did not know that!

one thing that separates reason-minded folks from religious delusionoids is our ultimate trust in knowledge, and along with that goes being able to admit that the human race has just barely scratched the surface of what there is to know about the universe we inhabit.

the sheer ignorance required to think we really know all there is to know about the physical world and to assume it was the work of a bearded guy in the sky is absolutely mind boggling to me.

how dare you think you know everything!

that being said, knowledge is power. and one advantage of not having a social life (read: not having a girlfriend) is being able to focus my energies on soaking up as much knowledge as possible. and boy have i got a lot of work to do!

as a sinophile, i'm embarrassed that i know very little about tibet and its history, so i picked up a book and intend to get informed.

stocking is the new planking and i gotta learn me some of that!

a recent re-viewing of the matrix reminded me that i know next to nothing about alternate states of consciousness and the possibilities born out of philosophical thought experiments, so here i come nietzsche! here i come, camus!

of course, one can never know everything, but admitting that and trying to better one's self through knowledge is a much better alternative to wading in the status quo of being controlled by delusional barbarians.







  1. Speaking of getting philosophical... I don't know if you've ever read "God's Debris" by Scott Adams (of "Dilbert"), but if not, take an hour or so to let your imagination play.

  2. never read it, but thanks for the tip! will put it in my reading queue now!
