"Nothing exists except atoms and empty space. Everything else is opinion." Democritus of Abdera
We love to hear ourselves talk. And sometimes others like to hear us, too. But mostly, we are uninformed about almost everything.
Did you know that details make the recipe? Same with our take on things. When we spout how much we know on a particular issue, are we taking into account the tiny bits and pieces that either hold together or break apart our ideas and ramblings? Do we even know what those bits are?
It's fine to converse and discuss. It's also incumbent upon us to realize we don't know it all. About anything. Ever.
"Hear those who say they seek truth; run from those who say they've found it." The Old Philosopher
