We are all very ignorant man. You're ignorant, I'm ignorant, we are all ignorant. For some reason, we all think that we are all very smart. I think the condition of our economy, our social structure, our educational institutions, treatment of the planet, and treatment of each other really exemplifies how ignorant we all are.
You are limited to your consciousness and you're thoughts and we are all trapped in our own individual mental worlds. Sometimes are worlds differ so much from one another that its hard for two people to find common ground. My point is that people do life in many ways due to differing mental states. You have you're own little mental state. Its foolish to think that you know more than any 1 single person on this planet.
We are monkeys who make the assumption that we understand everything. If you've ever taken psychedelic drugs, you start to really question what reality is, what's real and what's not when you trip. Our world is stranger than we all can suppose and to assume that you have knowledge because you got a degree or passed through some school doesn't mean shit. It does mean something within the context of society, but society is just a collective agreement and hallucination as to how the world should work.
Anyways, my main point is that its foolish to assume that you're better off or smarter than anyone else. No one has a clue has to what's going on at this point within the context of our culture. Its literally turning into a run away train with no one in control.
