I don't know enough at all... saying that though knowing what I do know tends to complicate simple conversation when I dialogue where I would only have to say yes.
I call it random fact overload. It just spills out over the sides... lol
"Though I stand in opposition to you, I am not opposed to you. Night and Day stand in opposition to each other, but they are not opposed to each other -they are merely two halves of the same coin."
Yes the problem is in quantity and quality of information. That I agree. Especialy when one forgets vital information/s... and it's aware of that. Wich personaly pises me. Ignorance is bliss to some extent.
I really can't see any one knowing too much , I'd opt for not knowing enough, no offence meant.
I do not hold with the saying 'ignorance is bliss' at all.
Nor do I find that 'knowing too much can make you miserable'.
I find when i am miserable i need to remove the veils of ignorance which fog and confuse, as smoke and mirrors are the actual causation of the unhappiness.
I have only found understanding and the lack of ignorance to be where i find peace, bliss and acceptance live.
I have found, it true for me anyway that....... 'The truth will set you free'.
I agree with socrates about a lot of things such as 'the only good is knowledge and the only evil ignorance'. And well, many more..... May I suggest, checking his works out if you haven't already.
Also...'The only true wisdom is knowing I know nothing' or 'The more I learn the less I know,' whichever.... Words to that effect.
To some this may seem a contradiction and I can hear the nay sayers with their, 'You can't have it both ways,' Boll*cks. Yet, I have found that you can....As it is not an either or situation...so little in life is.
Don't get stuck in the law of two. The thorns of truth will snag if you don't keep on making enquiry....Even upon the things we can be so sure and certain of. As there is always more to glean even of the things in life one feels are crystalline in their knowing......But, that's just me
