LAYMAN'S THOUGHTS




TWO STATES OF KNOWLEDGE

There are two states of knowledge. The first is the pure natural ignorance of every man at birth; the other is when man attains the highest wisdom only to find that he knows nothing, thus returning to the same state of ignorance of childhood. 

The latter is a wise ignorance in that one knows he is ignorant, unlike when he was a child. Most men have left the first natural ignorance but have not reached the second. They are  somewhere in the middle, possessed of some traces of knowledge but deceived into believing they know everything. Such in-betweens are the ones who upset the world and get everything in a mess.
